In 1994 Todd relocated to Oregon from Ohio becoming a licensed Architect in 1996. He has extensive experience working on a variety of projects including healthcare, theatrical, retail and residential building types.
Since 1999, Todd has been practicing on his own and has broadened his architectural education by constructing his own designs. During this time, Todd founded Abode Nature Building Cooperative, Oregon Cottage Company, LLC and has taught various natural building workshops including natural plasters rammed earth and straw bale construction.
We have recently established ourselves in the Southern Willamette Valley near the town of Cottage Grove, Oregon. By having over 21 years of Architectural experience in a wide range of locations and building types, we look forward to offering a variety of design and administrative services to our immediate and broader community of the Willamette Valley and beyond.
We understand that each project has a voice and giving undivided attention to the needs of the participants is paramount to having a successful and pleasurable relationship. We will work closely with your ideas to help bring clarity to your vision.
We would not be in the business of Architecture if we were not convinced that we can strike a balance of applying appropriate technology to meet the basic needs of individuals . We start simple and move to a broader understanding of what those needs really mean to our standard of living. There is a cost to all of our decisions and mitigating those costs can be objectified by offering comparative sound science. We promote passive and active solar, wind, geothermal technology as well as straw bale, cob, rammed earth and sustainably harvested timber framing construction types.
Bringing communication, enthusiasm and creativity to each project, we maintain a consistently high level of professional care and responsibility. All of our work is of the highest quality, as we know our clients would expect nothing less. Your project is our project.
