Beth C.

I had the good fortune to be referred to Steve/Ergo Architecture through a series of two of his architect peers. On the technical front, Steve has unique experience (professional and personal) with homes set on steep lots, something well suited to San Diego's canyon homes. Paired with this is a sharp understanding of San Diego building and planning sensitivities. The above alone would qualify Steve for my project. Going beyond the technical, Steve is a gifted designer with a keen sense of space, materials and light. His ideas for my MCM home were delightfully thoughtful. His design is artistic and practical. He's a bright individual with palatable enthusiasm for his work and a collaboration delight. I'm working away from San Diego now and am looking forward to starting our project upon my return. It should be noted that the cobbler's children and bus driver's holiday are not the case for Ergo. Their best project is Steve's house, it's a project to behold.
