In 2020, Alex was brought onboard to work with our design staff on our growing number of residential and commercial projects. With over 5 years of experience working in the area with small architecture firms and developers, Alex has gained valuable experience with a variety of project types including both new construction homes and countless renovations/additions.
After growing up in the northern hills of Pittsburgh, Alex earned a B.Arch from North Carolina State University. During this time, he studied abroad in Prague and traveled extensively through Europe, gaining insights to a wide range of architectural styles. His multidisciplinary education taught him to develop a concept into a holistic design solution. Since graduating, Alex has returned to Pittsburgh and is working toward his architectural license. He has also obtained his real estate license in 2016.
For Alex, it all comes down to the human experience - in terms of both the experience provided by a design, and in the process of creating the design. This is what drew Alex to Shelton and our integrated Design-Build process. This is why he set forth on his path to value-engineer the process of buying, designing, and building the space of your dreams by gaining the skills necessary to assist home buyers/owners in every step of the process as a single point of contact.
Alex and his fiancé currently reside in their recently-acquired home in Lawrenceville which they continue to renovate. Both being architects, their design minds never stop scheming creative ways to enhance a space and are continually evolving their skills and design sensibility.
