James E. Manning

I am inspired by nature.  Your 'space' needs not only to function, but to let you appreciate where you live.  Let the sun fill your kitchen, the gurgling creek be heard from your bedroom, the patio embrace the shade of the old cottonwood. The natural characteristics should inform the building that shares the lot.

After 37 years with premier commercial firms in Dallas, I set out on my own in January of 2008.  My goal is to focus on creating modern architecture that demonstrates craftsmanship, quality and most importantly, design that works for the client's lifestyle. 

My bachelor's degree in Architecture is from the University of Oklahoma.
