Andrei has over 3 years of professional architectural practice in commercial, multi-family residential and single-family residential projects. He also has over 12 years of construction experience, including design-build projects. Andrei has a contemporary and folk art background and has graduated Cum Laude, from Drexel University with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. ­­His philosophy is rooted in the belief that the craft of build­­ing combined with strong design and the ideals of sustainability are deeply rooted in tradition. He thinks that incorporating such traditional values throughout the architectural design and construction process creates a harmonious balance that can be felt throughout the spaces of well planned and executed projects. Outside of work Andrei enjoys exploring the various micro-climates of the Pacific Northwest, kayaking, woodworking and playing chess.
