About Eric

Joining Abacus Architects in 2013, Eric has a strong affinity for design and creating something that doesn’t yet exist. Eric has also been a leader in implementing the firm’s software technology, which he utilizes extensively in his role as a project manager. His creative approach involves listening to the client’s wishes, then developing design options that both meet expectations and push beyond them. Exploration is critical to Eric for not missing a detail or a direction that might make a difference. Overall, Eric strives to make the process enjoyable for clients. He understands that they are making a significant investment in their new building; all the more reason for it to be a pleasurable experience.

On working with him

“Oftentimes clients don’t know what is possible. I like to start without limits and work toward them, if need be, to give clients the benefit of exploration.”

On his favorite projects

“A contact lens distribution center in Burlington and residence in Williams Bay. These buildings were created by building relationships with the clients, who then trusted us to do things that would not have otherwise been possible.”

On his own time

“Commissioner on the Plan Commission for the Town of Brookfield, and also a member of the Architectural Review Board. Hanging out with my wife and kids, playing in a band, and I have recently been designing my own house–the whole reason I got into architecture in the first place.”

On relational architecture

“We seek to develop relationships through the use of architecture. It’s a commitment, something we take extra time to do, a long-term investment in the best interests of the client.”
