AIA National Conference on Architecture

At the end of April, our colleague Howard Miller attended the 2017 AIA Conference on Architecture in Orlando. This was a great opportunity to learn about the latest trends and technology and the ways architecture is contributing to the wellbeing of communities in the United States and around the world. The program included speakers from Africa addressing the life-changing effect of architecture on small communities when priority is given to working with locals and using local materials. Keynote speaker Michelle Obama inspired us to listen and be inclusive rather than discriminatory. On the convention floor, one of the standout products was Flowstone, a translucent calcite stone that can be glazed and used on kitchen counters, table tops, spa surfaces, and more. On display were also innovative updates to windows, design software, and home automation. Offsite activities included a bicycle tour of Orlando, highlighting the progress the city has made towards being more bike-friendly. Overall it was a great convention. Next year it will be in New York City!

The City symbol is a fountain in a lake. Lots of lakes in Orlando.

Orlando is full of lakes, and the fountain rising from Lake Eola (shown here) is the symbol of the city.

An architectural bicycle tour is a nice way to get around. Orlando's bicycle infrastructure is not to Seattle's level, but they are progressing.

Carleton Park Remodel Part of Magnolia Home Tour

2239-viewmont-int-117-copy

 

This weekend we were pleased as Christmas punch to see one of our projects featured in Pacific NW Magazine. This 1924 Tudor-style home has been selected as part of the Magnolia Holiday Home Tour. We renovated the house to adapt it to a contemporary lifestyle while preserving original details and taking full advantage of the sweeping views of Elliott Bay.

We were happy to partner with the interior design firm of Jennifer Randall & Associates throughout the house, including the kitchen, library, and the dramatic Art Deco-inspired powder room.

Read the whole article and see a slideshow of the house here.

Learn more about the Magnolia Holiday Home Tour and purchase tickets to the December 3rd event here.

 

Track the progress of the project on our blog, from initial demolition in July of 2013 to finishing touches in November 2014.

Just a few last bits to be finished

But the owners are moving in now! Look for this project to show up in our portfolio next spring (after the client is settled and the landscape has been installed).

We retained the existing mantle and installed a new tile surround and hearth and gas insert.

Demolition is under way on a substantial remodel and house lift. As usual we found a few unusual conditions, and they are already under control.

So many wonderful rooms

This home is now being re-occupied by the owners, and so many of the rooms are inviting and beautiful. Here are a few pictures of my favorites, of course there are others… they just aren’t quite finished yet!

We are on Page 42 of the May 2011 Fine Homebuilding!


This project was also featured in Fine Homebuilding’s Kitchens and Baths 2010 issue, but the article this month talks about the technical aspects of framing a bump out. Howard came up with the structural solution, and John Apolis did the engineering.

The results are in!

Our clients have chosen from the schemes shown in the “Home Makeover: Bungalow Edition” blog post. The California style bungalow was the preferred option. We modeled it in 3-D and generated these images. It looks great!
