About Bob

Bob is genuinely committed to the practice of architecture as a means of helping people improve their lives and realize their dreams. One of the firm’s founders, he and the other partners formed Abacus to create a more client-centric firm where the ownership–and the vested interest–is shared with employees. Bob is a designer and problem-solver at heart who encourages clients in big-picture thinking and future planning. With every project he gives clients his all, and finds projects for clients that help other people especially gratifying.

On working with him

“So many architects have their own agenda. I embrace the client’s mission instead, and find true joy in achieving their goals.”

On his favorite project

“Pine Haven senior community was an exceptional experience for becoming so deeply involved and seeing how it’s improving the lives of residents.”

On his own time

“I have trouble saying no so I’m involved in numerous community organizations. I also love boating, playing billiards and tasting craft beers.”

On relational architecture

“It means getting to know clients as well as we can, understanding what’s important to them and what their needs are, taking it all in and creating a solution that’s right for them.”
