“Early in my career, I experienced the power of design as my grandmother’s ten-year battle with Alzheimer’s led to her becoming one of the patients in my first hospice facility. Intimately involved in her daily care, I observed first-hand the impact of environment on her health as she shifted from nursing home to hospital to hospice facility. As we settled her into the hospice room, we saw her immediate sense of peace. The tranquil atmosphere of home, the impeccable care and compassion, and most importantly, her sense of peace comforted us all. Those personal experiences have guided me in every design, fueling my passion for experiential and healing design in every project.”


This new 16,000 SF health & wellness center is nestled in the woods, providing the community a retreat from their daily lives to an oasis engaged with nature. The facility provides adults age 50+ the opportunity to exercise, socialize and engage through a variety of activities and events focused on active lifestyles, well-being and growth. Participants have the opportunity to pursue interests, interact with their community and share their experiences, and are encouraged to continue their independence. The building functions are distributed along a clerestory-lined main axis for easy way-finding. Outdoor gardens, trails and four Pickle Ball Courts provide a true escape for participants. The facility is designed to reflect the ideals expressed through a series of community workshops: access to nature, substantial daylighting, small group social spaces, room flexibility, interior and exterior rooms. Meeting the vision of the community and its users has been key to this project. As one user stated, “We want a living center, not a nursing home. We have a lot more life to live. The building should reflect that.” 

Hampton County Health Department

This regional clinic was designed to reflect the rural community’s faith in their future. Located in a former railroad town, the rectangular massing and metal cladding are reminiscent of boxcars that no longer stop on their way through. The building holds to a three-foot grid, matching the off-the-shelf boxcar rib panels, allowing the panels to meet precisely at windows and corners without coped cuts and with minimally-sized custom corner trim. Storefront windows are surrounded by deep-plate steel shrouds, which project shadows and provide a sense of privacy to the building’s occupants.

Beaufort County Adult Day Services Center

The new Beaufort County Adult Day Services Center, which serves the local community of Beaufort SC, includes space planning for educational programs, counseling, administration and support to provide therapy and training for over 100 special needs clients. The project goal was to design and provide safe, appropriate activity spaces in a non-institutional atmosphere that would continually address the changing needs of the clients. To achieve this goal we incorporated flexible, multi-funtional spaces for communal and private uses - using sustainable design principles including daylighting, local and regional materials and minimal site impact.
