-For 45 years Jerry Smania's residential design has brought art into the everyday living space. Recognized for his ability to capture light, & blend materials he has created timeless spaces from particularly challenging sites. Whether engineering a foundation for a yard structure in a narrow ravine, bridging a home and garage with a studio/workshop to create a dynamic new focal point, or bringing green elements into complex renovations. Upon their completion the spaces remain as an artistic accentuation of their surroundings.
