Working with acclaimed national builders and designers, our international team composed of highly ranked architects, brings together a diversity of ideas that will accomplish all tasks and requirements.
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio as an only child with European background, at a very early age he had the desire and passion to build and design, using Lego, Lincoln Logs and Kenner Girder and Strut toys, which helped develop the abilities he uses today.
Growing up in South Florida, during the boom years, he choose to go to Cincinnati to attend the #1 rated architectural school in the U.S, the University of Cincinnati, for the 6 year Bachelorette Architecture Program. Receiving a bachelor in architecture, and a minor certificate in historic preservation, this included on-the-job training as part of the curriculum. Taught in the German Bauhaus model in which design is not limited to buildings, but is well rounded in all fields of art, graphics, painting and architecture, this same school program educated and graduated such greats as Michael Graves and Peter Eisenman.
During school, under a work study program, he worked in a tract house plan factory doing the work in Westinghouse's suburb, Coral Spring, which then led to designing in the new country club communities in Boca Raton and the starting of his own firm; building the company from scratch with a portable drawing board and a typewriter, getting references via word of mouth from realtors and builders, after seeing the popularity of the designs he produced, led to his unparalleled success. Having been the architect for thousands of magnificent homes and estates for an elite and international clientele who demand excellence, Shane enjoys a reputation second to none.
He is proud and honored to be the recipient of countless unsolicited pictorials in dozens of leading architectural and design publications. Shane's custom homes and projects now grace approximately 30 countries and counting.
