Introduction
I offer a wide range of services (as built drawings, feasibility studies, design) for residential new construction and remodels and small commercial projects. I specialize in "mother in law" projects and I consider myself an expert in code interpretation and obtaining permits. Every client and every project is unique and I most enjoy helping people get more than they hoped for from their project. I have no set design style and work hard to include the client in the process.

We selected Lawrence based on our first meeting because he listened and understood our requirements perfectly and came up with many ideas that we liked. Working with him is a pleasure. He is super-reliable, always keeps us informed and identified and found solutions to the many challenges we have with our project. He has obtained our first permit and we have a number of projects ongoing with him.

Lawrence saved us after a negative experience with another architect! We are adding an attached garage with a room over the top, two upstairs bathrooms, new kitchen, raising the roof and adding a dormer to augment our view, and taking out the interior chimney to open up the stair case . . . on a Tudor house that was built in 1928--not an easy project. The plans are creative and lovely, and we had no problem getting a building permit. Lawrence is prompt, patient, and really listens. Will post photos of the finished remodel when we're done.

We worked with Lawrence in the planning of our mother in law garage apartment and found him to be a great listener, detail-oriented, and very responsive to our design ideas. I would definitely recommend him!

Lawrence is an engaged and thoughtful architect and took the time to become familiar with us and the site before he started to bring us a few proposals and then refine the pieces out of each and pieces drawn freehand on the fly. He was able to help us locate some of the preliminary professionals (survey, engineering, etc.) so that the work was well defined by the time the contractors made bids- detailed blueprints eliminate ambiguity when comparing bids and Lawrence put that sort of package together and then supported getting it blessed through several rounds of "oh- one more thing" from the city during the permitting process. Persistent and professional.
