Nathan’s love of design comes from a strong desire to create. He believes there are two fundamental aspects to the architectural process: the idea of what we want to make, and the ability to communicate the thought and turn it into a reality. Nathan’s early training was in art, which offered an unhindered way of creating forms. This phase was essential to his ability to imagine design. Since starting his career in architecture, the focus has shifted to developing his ability to communicate visually. His early work focused primarily on communicating ideas to clients through renderings, which are a simple extension of his art. Since then, he has moved towards developing his abilities to produce construction documents through his hands-on experience in construction. For Nathan, this process is approached from two angles: the first is the development of the ability to draw, the second is to understand construction and how things come together, which is the ability to create design.

on a personal note....

Nathan’s dream of becoming an architect began with his first set of Legos. Although he loves Chicago in the summer, his favorite place to be is at his family home in Jackson Hole, WY.  He enjoys spending time outdoors and builds furniture in his spare time.
