Client Recommendations

Often times when people are shopping for an architect or designer they ask me for past client recommendations.  I recently asked some of my clients to write in about their experiences working with me.  I was so flattered to receive such positive feedback.

The Vistas at Entrada

The Vistas at Entrada is the exquisite location of The Portrush from The St. George Parade of Homes, 2015.  This amazing area, owned by Jack Fisher Homes, is comprised of 33 lots ranging from .35 acres to one full acre.  I have designed six luxury house plans for these lots.  Each plan is designed to incorporate the red rock scenery with multiple patios and large windows.

The interiors of The Portrush home were designed to not distract from the outdoors landscape that is visibly accessible throughout the home.  The light colored floors, walls and furniture allow the eye to be drawn to the stronger striking landscape just beyond.  Thank you again to the photographer; Adam Stoker, and Jack Fisher Homes for providing these great pictures.

Thank you to Adam Stoker; the photographer, and to Jack Fisher Homes for supplying these great shots of our St. George Parade house this year.  This home was designed to incorporate the spectacular environment it is built in.  Every living space and bedroom opens to an outdoor patio.  There is a seamless flow from the outdoor and indoor living spaces .

As I was enjoying working in the St. George sun for the Parade of Homes this year, I reflected on all the great projects I have been awarded in Entrada.  And, I remembered one that I haven’t shared yet.  I was able to work with this wonderful client from breaking ground all the way through the interior design.

PILLOWS, PILLOWS, PILLOWS!!!

Pillows are definitely one of my favorite things!  They are so effective in warming up and personalizing a space.  Many of my pillows are custom made and meaningful to me.  Making a pillow out of a piece of handiwork, an old favorite shirt or blanket, or even patches you’ve collected is a great way to preserve a memory.   Pillows are tactile and interactive, making your memories have life again.

Unique Commercial Spaces

In 2010 I designed this custom office building for Gold Medallion Homes.  While having a unique, fresh, and inviting feel it maintains a professional quality.  This commercial space is a great example of  how a corporate office can maintain high esthetic quality.   Designed specifically for the needs of Gold Medallion’s business at the time as well as for future expansion, it was unfortunate they did not occupy the space longer.  I really enjoyed working with the owners of Gold Medallion Homes.  However, the space is again being used by a home builder, and we are happy to see Wright Homes using the space.
