Office building development
A Toronto client asked us
create and render a pair of small office buildings for a proposal.
A tight deadline and a
hand at design put me right in my zone.
This house was to be built
right in the heart of the village of Kingsburg N.S. I designed the
house to be a traditional Cape Cod with a bold projection facing the
sea. Then I wrapped it in a circular pergola that provides an upper
deck for the master bedroom and some shade for the dining room which is
all glass on three sides.
Another house in the heart
Kingsburg, I needed to keep the exterior largely traditional, but of
the highest standard.
Inside it's a delight,
timber and beadboard ceilings, hand crafted period kitchen and both
bedrooms with ensuites.
Green Wood Columbarium
The premier international
mausoleum builders, Milne construction rely on Cornerstone for the
highest quality visualization.
This project in Brooklyn
York is a fine example of the level of detail and realism required to
fully appreciate the project.
Mackie - White House
This house, also in
Kingsburg, is a perfect example of my philosophy of design in an
historic village setting. The main house is a pure Lunenburg Bump and
the intention is that it was recently thoughtfully restored and
enhanced with a new wing facing the sea and a wonderfully nautical
However the entire house
This seemingly simple Cape
Cod sits on a seaside ridge called Beach Hill. The view is captivating
and must be exploited.
By turning the gable ent
the sea I was able to use a lot of glass without spoiling the classic
form of the Cape.
Another project for Milne
Construction, this building is truly a new cathedral.
An excellent candidate for
rich 3D visualization with it's soaring ceilings and fine detailing.
A classic Lunenburg Bump
the heart of Kingsburg village. This house is an excellent example of
how we can design and build an exceptional home to an exceptional
standard on a remarkably modest budjet.
This amazing structure was

to sit low on the brow of a ridge overlooking the sea. I wanted to
maximize the width of the house to give every room a view. Then it came
to me, a rural train station! Not just the semblance of one, but almost
completely authentic to the style. It's increasable how well the
massing of the station works for a seaside home.
This house needed to be
large, with a two car garage, gym, sauna and a two bedroom guesthouse.
Therefore I designed it as a gothic revival with an attached barn. The
effect is completely authentic and manages a huge home into the village
Notre Dame University
Again, a conceptual
visualization for Milne Construction. This media was invaluable to the
stakeholders in advancing this ambitions project.
To be build on the seaside
Blue Rocks N.S. this large gothic has an attached garage and
guesthouse. Again this house is designed to suggest that the original
simpler house was improved some time later when some good fortune
befell the owner. This is exactly how many of the fine Lunenburg area
homes came to be.
Intended to be modest in
appearance but solid and stalwart in execution, this Cape Cod stands
proud high over the sea on Beach Hill.
A good example of how a
simple home designed and built "right" can vastly surpass the ordinary.

lots of fun to create in 3D.
This house, high over
Kingsburg N.S. is a total renovation of an existing building.
I needed to find a way to
transform the existing forms into something exceptional.
Conversion of an old
store to a seaside cottage.
Conversion from an old
boatyard shed to a studio.
Lunenburg public washrooms
I was asked by the town of
Lunenburg Nova Scotia to enter a competition to design a new public
washroom. These are my two proposals, the Cape Cod version was chosen
I was able to merge this virtual building into it's landscape
Designed as a summer
property, this house is intended to capture the sense of an English
