  • In services you will see why I combine environmental wisdom for your best design results.
  • My quest is fulfilling the purpose of your project with excellent architecture, not just to get another pretty photo on our website.
  • I don’t fit everyones needs. Design teamwork, energy conservation, indoor heath & natures design tools, are not for everyone.
  • I look for those who can’t wait to exploit my talents to help create a Joyful Home using these fine environmental design methods.


Here are examples of creative ideas for new & existing homes, plus some stylistic concepts.

  • A central atrium or cupola, offers height, light, plants & oxygen. A living heart for a home. Adding one to an existing home is quiet easy.
  • South facing greenhouses, "passive-solar heated" will grow your veg's & flowers all year. It doubles as a gym, work area, studio & play room.
  • A Master suite addition provides, a growing family space & more secure independent living through all the ages of ones lifetime as well.
  • An ADU, or in-law unit, can be attached, or more frugally from a portion of your home. With a finer detached unit, downsize & travel the world.
  • Styles of homes: I designed in International Style for my mother & father. (See 2 photos below.) They filled it with art-work & a wax chandelier.
  • If you favor French Country romantic design, create new interiors or a whole European charmed home, with materials for a good life with taste.
  • A Tudor style with olde, English character, can also take advantage of a well insulated, fire resistant, exterior, stucco finish & design details.
  • A contemporary home, spacious & uncluttered, for creative thinking.
  • A composition of various heights & distinctive spaces & flow, will inspire you.
  • Sante-Fe’s style, bold, bright & uncluttered. Express by composing indoor-outdoor spaces, in a play of color walls on your site to charm your life.

*Below is a professionals 2019 review of home I designed & built for my family then it sold. It is in the night photo above & the video linked below.*

As the owner, and lead home inspector, of ProTech Building Inspections LLC, we see many houses in the Roaring Fork Valley each week. Rarely do we see a house as innovative as the Shapiro house. The house incorporates many advanced features and the floor plan flows naturally within its surroundings. The house captures lots of natural light and is one of the most energy efficient designs in the valley. The finishes are sophisticated and thoughtful, fitting such a well designed home. On top of that, the house has a fantastic 180 degree view that is second to-none. This house is easy to maintain and would be a joy to own.
Best regards, Dave Wall
