We design homes that weather the test of time,
so that we may live well within them for many generations.
Why Fourth Dimension Architecture?
When we renovate a house,
we have a chance to
flip the hourglass
and start again fresh
by extending its lifespan.
Liz earned her Bachelors of Architecture degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2012 and has been working in the field of architecture ever since.
In her first 10 years, she apprenticed with 9 architects and participated in 277 residential architecture projects, including her own independent projects.
She earned her license to practice architecture in 2020, just as the world shut down in a global pandemic and everyone retreated to their homes.
This time inside strengthened her resolve to design houses that are more than just 2x6's covered with drywall; to become homes, our houses need to provide more than shelter from the elements.
A home is a sense of safety, a place of belonging,
a space to gather with those who mean the most to us,
and a healthy environment to grow in and become our best selves.
You may encounter Liz in the wild snowboarding in the Catskills, walking her Siberian Husky or writing poetry about the meaning of home.
