"I think as Austin has grown, it has become a lot more cosmopolitan, and people expect more design from the environments they inhabit. Styles and tastes come and go like fashion, but I think Austin has done a great job in creating its own niche." A shot of the exterior of Uchi. Courtesy of Uchi

"What I meant by that is that I don't do a lot of contemporary work--what is of the moment. I feel like that kind of work looks dated the fastest. When there is a sense of some history in a project, it comes out more timeless and unique." A shot of the interior of Gibson Bar. Courtesy of Gibson Bar
