Rabbit holes:

The concept is to explore the individual case studies, and projects in order to better understand the concepts and the process of the studio. If you are interested in asking questions or discussing certain aspects of projects - give us a call. We also have some videos on Vimeo that will show some of the material explorations and furniture development. For videos, click here.

D. Gallery:

This is the most significant architectural project to date.  It represents not just a fully developed project, integrated with its site.  It represents a strong set of architectural concepts and ideas that are very relevant and worth taking a little bit of time to explore.  Lastly, overall this project is a window into some wild cowboy days in the recent architectural history.

D. Bridge:

The D Bridge Project is a perfect example of the design process. We won an AIA TAP Award for the Best Use of Technology in Design, 2015. It has real breadth and the digital design tools were very sophisticated, which allowed the fabrication and assembly to be the opposite. Our design challenge was to create a logic and set of systems that could be built fast track/offsite and light touch on the property.

wilson residence:

This is a house that was designed for a site in Ruidoso, NM.  This is another good example of process. A very tight set of site constraints and a normal residential cost per square foot. It was a really unique approach to the context development. We slept in tents on site and developed a virtual set of context models using controlled data points and simple digital tools. The resulting digital environments allowed us to accurately and fluidly develop the design from Philly. The project is on hold but hopeful.

 

b. residence:

This project represents a good example  of a residential projects potential. It is actually a huge house, 9000sf, but we had a very down to earth client that valued simplicity and felt naturally compelled to not over-do-it.  The cost per square foot were less than average, the results were way above average. We executed the design work and fabricated many beautiful objects within this project, making it a great example of Point B thinking and craft.

 

rEhobos:

A play on words for my brother and his partner’s house in Rehoboth Beach.  This house is a great example of a small-scale project that has some Point b “nuggets” in there.

The design of the house itself is a good example of taking an existing home and cleaning up the DNA – setting up a clear tone and ambiance for the house with a few simple gestures.

rehobos 2:

After breaking my heart and selling their newly completed home, I helped Peter and Ace with their new home four blocks away.  This is a larger home but has an evolved sense about it that should be the goal of any design project.  Setting up some simple principles and following a similar formula to the first home. The amazing floors took a lot of time/effort.

shields residence:

My home is an incubator and the “island of misfit toys” for the prototypes that have yet to hit the street.  There are some cool features to note if you are thinking of doing a renovation or a new home.  The tub has a unique development.  The stairs and railings are quite unique.  The concepts around the white paint colors and their relationship is worth time. The doors and the “lenses” are good performance pieces. The kitchen light is a piece of art with real depth.
