I am a licensed architect in Massachusetts, specializing in residential design—new construction, additions, remodeling, and design consultations—with over 20 years’ experience in residential projects.
I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and also studied at the Architectural Association in London.
My experience prior to establishing Walters Design Studio in 2009 included many years as a Senior Associate with Dewing & Schmid Architects (now DSK|Dewing Schmid Kearns) where I had the opportunity to work on all aspects of residential design projects, and hone the art and craft of creating gracious, contextual new homes, additions and renovations.
I have broad experience in technical aspects of residential architecture such as zoning research, site planning, initial schematic design, structural issues, product specification, detailed building shell and interior design, contractor selection and construction administration.
I have special interests in Universal Design, Building Science, Aging-in-Place, and ‘Not So Big House’ principles, and some links to more information on these topics can be found on my resources page.
I try to help clients recognize and prioritize what is personally important for their living spaces. In translating clients’ ideas into physical form, I strive to design places that provide support for a wide range of human activities, from group social interactions to personal solitude. And in every project, large or small, my goal is always to create graceful, well made objects and spaces of utility and beauty that speak to the human soul.
