Grant is a talented, imaginative architect and a lovely person to work with, just in general. He takes a timely and concientious approach to helping his clients through the approval process, and his work is never less than 100% exceptional. One of the unique benefits of working with Grant is his remarkable breadth of background knowledge: he has worked in so many fields besides architecture that he can think of lateral approaches and inspired solutions which might never occur to others. His designs are beautiful, and thoughtfully work with the surrounding environment. I offer my highest recommendation.
