Why Measured?

Measured architecture has an excitement and aspiration that inspires. Their constant pursuit of innovative avenues of design produces projects that push boundaries. I strive to immerse myself in an environment that fosters creativity, where I can learn to never stop exploring.

Go to unit of measurement

Imperial for architecture, metric for everything else.

I chose Vancouver because 

I love the mountains, the ocean, the people, so few places in the world are this kind of beautiful.

I’m drawn to design because

I think that the built environment has a profound effect on people, and that design can help shape the way we feel.

Preferred era in architecture

The present. We have the luxury of drawing on the past, and can share ideas across the world.

Quotes that guide me right now

“Man is his own maker; the chief of his works is his self-worth”

-Richard Sennett

“Architecture is not optional, it is not a luxury item, it is and always has been the very fabric of our survival, our potential flourishing, our possible demise”

-Sarah Robinson

Materials that excite me

Wood, concrete, fabrics.

When I’m not working you can find me

Climbing, cycling, hiking, reading.
