We were hired by our colleagues and friends at Korth Sunseri Hagey Architects to develop conceptual phase Animal Sanctuary for a large empty site in California. This will be a sanctuary for dogs, feral cats, sick and elderly cats, and a potential range of farm animals. In addition to providing end of life care for the animals in the best possible environment, our design considers a net-zero strategy for this project consisting of highly energy efficient buildings being fully powered from on-site and/or off-site renewable energy sources.
We are thrilled to participate in the 2019 Launch Pad @WantedDesign Manhattan (May 18-21, 2019) during @NYCxDESIGN, New York's celebration of global design. Presented with @designmilk. We will be showcasing two tables (MT-1 and MT-2) from our M-Serie. If you are there, we look forward to seeing you in NYC. If not, check out our Tables here: (m-serie.com).

We are making good headway with the complete renovation of a 1959 wood framed split level modern home located in Bellevue Washington. This house is very well designed, aligning key functions within the house solar orientation. We are excited to be renovating this home with an eye towards efficiency and a family’s current living needs. More to come….
Sometimes our hard work does not come to fruition. Here is a very early rendering project we helped a client develop over 2 years in Northern Michigan. This was a close and fun working collaboration with our clients to locate a weekend “cabin” on a beach along Lake Michigan. The property had amazing views to the West towards the Leelanaw Peninsula and the end of Grand Traverse Bay. The house was approached through the woods - creating a sequence of experiences intended to decompress and create a sense of anticipation. Set into a wooded dune, this house would have created a veiling of the lake, with glimpses of the light reached only when stepping into one of the two Upper Level Living Spaces. Bedrooms had direct access to the Beach and were placed below the Main Living Areas.
Nice to see some of this searing sunshine right now from Seattle. Also nice to see a completed small project in Palm Springs. We helped a good friend make poolside living and sleeping a reality, closing the loop on Palm Springs realness…Needless to say looking forward to a site visit.
We have been working on a few exciting new and renovation projects and here is a concept rendering of our South Lake Tahoe Project. We are very excited and grateful to be working with this client again on such a fun project. Thanks always to Black Box for excellent renderings.
A hint of some great photographs by Mellissa Kaseman Photography of our Condominium Renovation Project in a downtown Seattle Landmark Building. This was the building’s Recital Hall - on the 7th floor. The project involved a complete renovation of 2 bathrooms, bedrooms, Living Room, Dining Area and Kitchen. The biggest challenge on this project was installing a new elevator connecting the 7th, 8th, and Roof Levels. Working with a great team from MRA and Buker Engineering, we were able to negotiate installing the elevator in concert with existing structure.
