Our Autumn Hill Lane house is on the cover of the January/February 2015 issue of Design New England. Inside there is a great article about the house written by Kathleen James that captures the design story behind this house. The article also provides a good description of the main features of the house which include not only the visible design elements such as the modern materials, abundant natural light, open plan and clean lines, but also the quality of the construction and energy-efficiency of the design. Thanks to Kathleen and the staff of DNE for this feature article, and to Jim Westphalen for his beautiful photography.
We are pleased to announce that our Autumn Hill Lane house received a citation award from AIA Vermont this year. This year's AIA VT award entries were juried by a committee from AIA Wyoming and the awards were presented at the annual AIA VT dinner this week, held at the State House in Montpelier. A total of eight projects received awards this year and we are honored to be among those chosen. There were many great projects entered, confirming that Vermont continues to create quality architecture. Thanks again to our clients, the crew from Leach Construction of Vermont, and the many artisans and craftsmen who worked so hard to make this building possible. A final thanks to Jim Westphalen for his photography.
Our Chase Street house was published in the May/June issue of Design New England. Thanks to Jim Westphalen for the excellent photography used in the article, he was great to work with and the images are fabulous. He really manages to capture both the overall feeling as well as the finely crafted details of this simple, modern house. Thanks also to Kathleen James who wrote the article. She was a pleasure to work with and her genuine interest in the spirit of this project is reflected in the text of the article. Thanks to DNE for their appreciation of this house and for putting together a consistently great magazine featuring some of this region's best work. Finally, huge thanks to Kirk Williams and Mark Bonser. Kirk, for being both client and highly-skilled metalsmith/collaborator. Mark, for your enthusiasm, skill and experience as the builder. As on previous projects, your leadership brought us through to the successful completion of this one. As always, we feel grateful to have the fortune of working in Vermont where we seem to be surrounded by talented builders, artisans, artists and craftsmen.
