Jerome Oliver Starkey

As an architect that is concerned with both the built environment and the philosophical nuances of the world in which we exist, design emphasis revolves around both the aesthetic of the product, and the effect of that aesthetic. Extensive experience in designing and detailing upmarket executive homes has allowed architectural skills to be honed in a way that produces great quality within budget.
