"Danielle's greatest asset is that she intuits what people are looking for and she does it very creatively and leaves any of HER preferences out...she listens wonderfully well and she gave us more well designed space than we ever could have imagined...also, her pricing compares most favorably to other architects.  She is extraordinarily accessible, she is fast!!"


- Holly Cunningham

Detail - Oriented

"Danielle has so many strengths, but some of the ones that stand out to me are the following:


  1. Upon our initial meeting, she wrote everything down that we said we wanted/did not want. Everything!!

  2. She stayed in touch with us during the entire process.

  3. She was very detail oriented.

  4. Where changes were made due to budget, she let us know and showed us in the house as it was being built.

  5. Every time we came in from Philadelphia, she always made herself available to us at the house."


- Marian Hammer

What is        ?


In Feng Shui philosophy, "Chi" is energy...


The energy that exists in all things.


The goal of Feng Shui is to positively impact the energy of one's environment, so the "chi" flows smoothly, blessing & benefiting the highest good of those living and working in a given space.
