Challenged to design his ideal house in a third grade after-school program, Brent’s choice to create a high-rise home, complete with elevator cores and mechanical chases, sparked a lifelong passion for solving complex problems in the built environment.
His projects make innovative leaps by thinking holistically around sustainability and well-being, incorporating biophilic design, daylighting, material health and social cohesion. Brent believes all these elements can reinforce each other, achieve harmony and lead to surprising and remarkable outcomes.
Brent believes in a client-centric design process that focuses on assessment, technology, and vision to bring value to our clients and community. He strives to create meaningful architecture that has a lasting impact on the people, places, and organizations involved. This is what drew Brent to the Sports, Recreation, and Entertainment market years ago and why he is passionate about leading the practice within our Chicago Studio.
