A History of Passion

My love of architecture, building science, building construction, their systems and the history & restoration of homes, has been in our family for over 100 years. My great grandfather Huib Hoste, was a pioneer of Belgian Modernist Architecture, and was involved in the industrialization and the modern reconstruction of Europe in the early 20th century. Hoste helped rebuild Belgium after World War one. After doing internships with Charles De Wulf & Louis Cloquet and under the influence of his Dutch colleagues, Hoste advocated a new architectural idiom to embody the changed postwar society.

Hoste left behind some truly groundbreaking modernist pearls in the Westhoek region of Flanders Belgium. Hoste was also an influence on American architects such as Frank Loyd Wright, Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, Philp Johnson and others.

I am truly honored to carry on that passion and tradition as a Master Home inspector inspecting homes & commercial properties here in SW Florida.
