“…Daphne was very efficient with her time to review the situations and codes to come up with solutions that provided cost effective construction costs, while satisfying the building authorities. She was very timely with her work, and has excellent follow through and communication.

I would definitely recommend Daphne as a highly qualified architect, and will use her again as needs arise.”

Gary Hall

Director of Operations, Atterdag Village of Solvang

“…Daphne was a keen listener and quickly grasped the intent and nature of the project, as well as the challenges we faced with the City. As we have moved through the permitting process, Daphne has demonstrated excellent knowledge of the process and has provided sound
guidance for us while being an attuned representative of our needs and of the project. I have been equally impressed with Daphne’s architectural plans, which she produces in a timely fashion, and are both beautiful to look at and reflect a thoughtful and skilled approach.”

Ben Werner

“Over the course of the 22 years that I have known Daphne, I have been impressed by her work ethic and ability to solve any problems that arise. Integrating Permaculture into her practice exemplifies her vision of being at the forefront of functional and sustainable architecture. She is hard‐working, detail‐oriented, and consummately professional. I highly recommend her.”
