A Personal History


Dean Meredith Cape Cod house Project4


“My early career was spent pursuing in-depth knowledge across many project types by creating luxury building design for residential, commercial, office, restaurant, retail and resort projects.

While working with several well-established San Diego luxury home builders and architectural firms, I honed my skills in contemporary as well as traditional forms of architecture and gained valuable experience in a host of different architectural disciplines. It was a chance to explore and meet enormous design challenges, intensely orchestrating an array of architectural forms with exterior and interior design. There is a constant search to create balance with nature and the exterior components of land forms, building forms, landscape, hardscape, courtyards, outdoor living spaces, water & fire features.

My architectural skills evolved from a strong background of design and art. This framework informs my architectural creativity so that it spans a wide range of styles: Contemporary, Modern, Traditional, Mediterranean, Craftsman, Frank Lloyd Wright style, and Spanish – to name just a few.

On every one of my projects, I begin with the personal essence of the client’s basic ideas, while addressing the critical physical demands of each specific site.

Recognition, honors and awards for my work have been earned locally and nationally for projects displaying an array of different architectural styles.

I was privileged to have the Discovery Channel select my firm for a special television segment featuring a home I designed in Del Mar, CA. Examples of my work may be viewed on the video page of this site.

I am not limited to any one architectural style to create my clients’ vision. I approach each Project with the same intense excitement and passion, successfully taking each Project from start to finish.
