It’s interesting to see the way that Alex’s studio addresses different concerns for different residential properties, and creates designs that maintain the unique look of each building, while updating and revamping the facade. The artist’s portfolio features before and after images, as well as concept renders, and it’s neat to be able to see how an idea takes shape through collaboration with the property owners.

The artist’s photographs have a journalistic feel to them, though the subject matter is not always so straightforward. In many images, the camera lens is trained on an interesting architectural element or design -- giving the viewer a firsthand look at the artist’s source of inspiration and fascination.
