Inspired by expansive vistas, dramatic land formations, and the natural processes that carve them, Luke sculpts lasting spaces that meet user needs and positively contribute to the public realm. While an artist and advocate at heart, Luke’s approach is equally informed by his work as a carpenter throughout college and upon graduation. This hands-on experience led Luke to understand the work on the other side of architectural drawings, affecting a contemplative yet practical design approach that’s driven by artistic and philosophical ambitions and manifested through deft management, a firsthand understanding of project constraints, and a commitment to constructability. Luke has lent his skills primarily to core and shell design for a variety of typologies, from residential towers, transit-oriented developments, healthcare buildings, and life science facilities.
Luke earned his degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. His thesis, “Carving the Vast,” explores the psychological effects of vastness in nature and how these feelings could be engendered within a dense urban fabric. In his spare time, he enjoys cycling, surfing, and exploring the vast and weathered landscapes of the West.
