Meet The Studio

Having grown up in Vermont, the Green Mountain State is the one place I truly call home.  After attending architecture school and earning my Bachelor degree in Architecture, I ventured to Vail, Colorado looking to begin my professional career, earn a Masters Degree, and fulfill my professional goal to become a professionally licensed architect. While out west I worked for Gwathmey Pratt Schultz Architects, a well-established architecture firm who’s been around long before Vail became an epic destination.  Colorado nurtured me as a young professional while affording me the ability to explore the outdoors, as well as the opportunity to meet my wife on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains.

Upon returning to my Vermont roots, I an architectural firm and invested 12 years at that firm and ultimately developed into the position of lead architect.In the lead role, I spent my time working directly with clients on all aspects of their projects: architectural design, interior design, and landscape architecture. Throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity to work on residential projects of varying scale, from large and complex custom homes to compact homes and small renovations.

Fast forward to 2015, now at the helm of my own architecture firm, I continue to focus my attention on building strong collaborative relationships with the individuals and companies that execute the architectural designs developed by our team. While each project is unique, I have come to rely on a collaborative process that utilizes inputs and creative ideas from my clients and a team of experienced professionals.

"I look forward to welcoming you into my Studio and my collaborative process."

Architecture has professionally been part of my life since the beginning of this millennium. However, it has been an interest of mine for much longer. Being able to take this passion for architecture, design, and the people that enjoy the spaces we build makes this a dream job. I am able to take my skills to produce construction documents that translate a vision into reality. My experience ranges from custom homes and medical facilities to interiors with hospitality venues. I love the process of watching a project grow out of the ground and the collaboration of the Studio.

“It is so exciting to be a part of the VSAP team and I look forward to collaborating with you on your project.”

Kelley Osgood

Project Manager

Born and raised in Vermont, building construction has been an integral part of my life since childhood. All brick and stonemasons, my grandfather, father, and three brothers had me on the job site at a young age. I knew early on that I would someday work in the industry and by 12 years old I decided that architecture was my calling.

After completing my education, I began my architectural career in 1997 with a large commercial architecture firm in Colchester, Vermont. Being part of the design team in many commercial projects, I honed my skills in building design, construction documentation, and construction administration. I have fond memories of my time at there and the architects that became great mentors to me.

In 2006, after realizing that residential design was my true calling, I joined a residential design office here in Stowe. I found it rewarding working closely with clients at a high level of design and to manifest their hopes and dreams into beautiful homes and living spaces. As a project manager, I had the opportunity to build numerous collaborative relationships with local contractors, tradespeople, and artisans.

I live at Bolton Valley with my wife and teenage children and enjoy fly fishing, alpine ski touring, hiking, kayaking, camping, traveling and spending time with great friends, family, and neighbors.

"I love sharing our passion for intuitive design solutions and for buildings that are unique, comfortable, and beautiful."
