My professional goal is not only to provide my clients with a wonderful experience during the design and construction of their projects, but also to inspire them to live and work more connected to their surroundings. Dwelling is an essential part of living and should be as harmonious and invigorating as the rest of our lives. My firm chooses to focus mostly on the home, as it is one of the most influential spaces in our lives. It is a place we share with our family, where we raise our children, entertain our friends and family, where we come to relax. The home should be treated like the sanctuary. We work on new custom homes, remodels, or even just a interior touchup. If you can dream it it can be done!

Lea’s work. She is one of the finest architects. in Colorado. Her homes are perfectly sited &
demonstrate a mass & scale that is consistently beautiful. Her interiors are both dramatic &
intimate. She is masterful at capturing light & views. All in all, a very talented architect.” – MO
“We love the house!” VH
“Lea’s architectural and design skills are extraordinary. She creates beautiful homes that take full
advantage of the site: the way the land sits, the views, and the neighboring properties. Everything
is considered to ensure the home ends up comfortable and fitting into its surroundings. It has
been very rewarding and refreshing working with Lea. She is smart, decisive, and inspired. My
ideas were considered in all phases of the project and I felt fully respected.” – DG
