Spending his formative years around the Sarasota School of Architecture movement, Justin was always fascinated by the way space shapes the human experience and the mechanics of how things go together. At 13, he began to spend his free time at his uncle’s job sites and learned from him both the technical practice of construction and also the power of relationships. He still spends his weekends renovating vintage homes with his husband, Stephan, and their dog, Luc.
Justin’s projects all have one common element: the relentless pursuit of the “big idea.” He believes that conceptual clarity in design leads to the most impactful projects, and that the details and technical execution are critical to support the broader concept.
At his core, Justin understands we have a responsibility to our clients and our planet to design thoughtful, timeless, and meaningful architecture. “The most sustainable architecture is architecture that makes a connection to those who use it.” His deep connection to all aspects of residential architecture–from designing it to building it–drives his wholistic approach to mindful design.
