Prior to founding his award-winning firm in 1998, Charles held leadership positions with distinguished architectural and planning firms designing a wide range of residential and commercial projects. This experience combined with his passion for designing fine homes led him to open his own residentially-focused architecture and planning firm on Maryland’s beautiful Eastern Shore. The exceptional natural beauty and vernacular traditions of the Shore captivate and inspire him.
Projects range from elegant waterfront estates and casual weekend retreats to historically-sensitive renovations and additions. Charles has developed an expertise designing for sensitive coastal areas and in navigating the complex matrix of planning, zoning and environmental regulations. Although residential commissions have been a constant throughout his career, he selectively takes on non-residential commissions where the client’s commitment to quality is paramount.
Charles works very closely with his clients, their builders and craftspeople to create enduring architecture – to be cherished for generations.
