After graduating for Syracuse University and moving to Naples from his dual hometowns of Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Stone Harbor, New Jersey, Lars found employment with Van Auken Miller, a locally renowned architect known for his multifamily projects, mixed use and light commercial work.
In 1999 Lars started his own firm with the focus on residential design and light commercial projects. In addition, his company personally developed several homes and renovated properties for speculative sale.
He volunteers a large portion of his time to the design and construction of stage sets, seasonal and decorative installations. His attention to detail and budget oriented mindset help make the projects successful and profitable. He also has extensive firsthand experience with almost all of the construction trades including finish and rough carpentry, metalwork, plumbing, electrical, and landscaping.
Lars lives in Naples, Florida with his beautiful wife Adrienne and his lovely daughters Grace and Abigail.

It has been said that good design, no matter how small in scale should never appear to be complicated or show the labor it took to produce it, but should appear as if it had not been considered at all, as if the detail came together naturally, or as Louis Kahn stated, "the way it wants to be."
