VOX LOCI  "Voice of the place"

The tangible expression of the unique character and intangible qualities of a site: the mood or "sense" of a place

 

...one who gives expression or voice to the experience of the place.

JOAN FURLONG, ASLA

Purpose: Placemaking and Placekeeping

Beyond the responsible creation of safe, useful, and sustainable facilities for work, play, learning, and home life, I aim to create meaningful, beautiful, and inspiring places.

This requires:

  • Ongoing dialogue with my colleagues and clients
  • A clear understanding of site development issues
  • Attentiveness to historic, natural, and cultural influences
  • Creative and experienced design expertise
