Principal

After our principal, Daniel Ian Smith, was awarded a Master of Architecture degree from New York’s Parsons School of Design, he continued to hone his residential design skills by passing all of the national interior design licensing exams—at once. Always attentive and respectful, Daniel’s creative approach is centered on the individual client, not some cookie cutter solution. A collaborative process is key to his core philosophy, and he firmly believes that everyone can enjoy a comfortable, well-designed home customized just for them.

With over two decades of professional experience in both architecture and interior design, Daniel leads all variety of projects toward the same two goals: beautiful, functional designs and dedication to client service. Village West Design is the expression of these aims, responsible for so many comfortable homes and contented homeowners.

“‘What’s interior architecture?’ everyone asks. I explain that interior design and architecture must work in concert—one informs the other. It’s this thoughtful marriage that allows us to be so successful.” -Daniel Ian Smith
