Christina D. Hansen Building Design & Consulting


Good Design, simply put, is a practice of creative decision-making that can translate from a succinct concept to a physical end that resonates.  I study and celebrate contextual narratives and help others craft their personal and professional ambitions through Visual Arts and ultimately in built Architecture form in residential, commercial, educational and civic structures.  The design process begins with intensive listening and research to confirm intentions. Design work progresses conceptually and evolves rigorously through planning, feasibility assessment, program and code, and design development. Decisions are made collaboratively in iterative fashion throughout. Finely crafted detailing serves to specify instruction during construction.  My professional Architectural Practice is founded upon the desire to articulate connections and celebrate both subjective and objective relationships with spirit, grace, sophistication, and significance.
