Owner, Contractor, Designer
(to edit down) The son of an architect and artist, Ian learned from his parents that everything humans build is based on a set of design decisions and that every act of building is worthy of careful thought. Fortunately, Ian also learned a love of the outdoors and to look beyond what humans can do for equal inspiration. As a result, Ian thinks expansively about landscape design; from the primary architectural elements, the planting and through to sculptural elements and furnishings. Ian also thinks intently about the unseen yet critical infrastructure elements of the project – from paving base, to drainage systems, to utility placement.
Ian brings a variety of insights and priorities to his work - an artist’s inclination, a builder’s practical problem solving and efficiency, and a trained designer’s penchant for internal consistency and excellence in detailing. Once he is engaged in building a project, Ian provides clear and consistent guidance for his team at every step. He takes great pride in both design and construction and puts his heart and soul into every project.
Daniel Reiff studied art with a focus on sculpture and photography. After living abroad Dan wound up in the Bay Area and fell in love with the plant life here, he then went on to study horticulture and sustainable agriculture. Working for Ian Moore design satisfies dans interest of crafting spaces using steel, stone, wood, light, and plant materials.
At the age of 7 Cameron began a 12 year apprenticeship with ceramicist Tom Collins in Sonoma, California. This was the foundation on which he built his relationship with the arts. He later found a love for woodworking as an assistant to Kyle Jones of Kaw Valley Guitars in Lawrence, Kansas. In returning to the Bay Area he sought to further his training in the trades and considers his work at Ian Moore Design as being a part of large scale art installations.
