Years of Experience
DACRE & YOUNGQUIST, LLC. Philosophy
Napa Valley Grille’s interior and patio was renovated to reflect the restaurants sophisticated menu and wine selections. The restaurant mixes earth tone colors, wood, tile and copper textures.
My foray into architecture and design started at a very young age. My architect father used to take me along on project site visits and I was fascinated to watch buildings being meticulously assembled. My career path was locked in at age 5. After graduating from the University of Illinois I became one of the youngest licensed architects in the State and co-founded Aumiller Youngquist, P.C. at the age of twenty-six. While at AYPC my partner and I each received the Platinum Circle Award for lifetime achievement in Hospitality Design. Thirty years, two offices, and thousands of projects later, it is time to get back to a more intimate relationship with my chosen profession.
Dacre & Youngquist, LLC is the next step in allowing me to do just that. I am stimulated and excited when I see a client talk about their project goals and immediately begin to think of ways to achieve the highest success with their program. I am not a problem solver, as there is rarely ever a real problem. I am a solution’s expert. The solution is always there, it just needs to manifest itself in a way that everyone can embrace. I maintain licenses in 20 States as you never know where the next great client may be hiding. If that client should be you, I cannot wait to meet and hear about what keeps you up at night. I have a solution for that!
