About

Dean Meredith Architecture AIA

“Intuition, imagination, and timeless design are the hallmarks of my architectural career. It is my own instinct and vision that sparks the creative process for each project, and unlike some firms, I personally sketch the conceptual design ideas, inspired by the site, clients’ program, and the natural environment. These conceptual designs are continually refined until I have the final architectural form, the perfect product for the client.”

“Architecture is my passion, and it is my intention to create architecture as an art form, blending structure with landscape to create not only a sculpture that respects, and incorporates, the natural surroundings, but an environment of fluidity, openness, and light. Most importantly, this livable art form should reflect my clients’ vision and personality, and provide them a serene and peaceful sanctuary that enhances their lives and stimulates their minds.”
