Bridging environments | the award-winning, low-profile retreat that lightly touches its landscape, paying tribute to both its homeowners’ affinity for nature and art.
Thanks again to our client and collaborators!
We are so happy how Grandview is turning-out (nestled in the trees).
The pre-existing tree canopy and lakeside location is such an idyllic setting.
So much work goes into dreaming and creating a work of architecture. Working with our clients to come-up with the design concept, then the key details may only get you 25% there.
You have to have really great communication between Owner, Architect, and Construction Team from beginning-to-end to get you to the finish-line. We are almost to a-hundred!
These are crazier times. At this point, we have now been confined to our homes for a couple of weeks. Most certainly, “Social distancing” is a term we are now very familiar with (and likely tired of hearing).
Also, we have learned a lot about what is “essential” and “not essential”. As we may or may not be developing some degree of cabin fever, we can probably agree that the environments that we have created for ourselves help contribute to our degree of well-being.
Is your environment functioning ideally – or are there things you would change? What is most important during a time of crisis? Is your home supporting the daily, intensified needs of your family and loved-ones?
Thanks to our clients and team members for their flexibility. We’re thankful we are able to continue forward as an essential activity utilizing safe means and methods in our daily work.
Everyone, please stay safe out there!
And finally, thanks, Lance and Laura for brightening our Friday with the card and update from Michigan! 🙂
Now that our excellent clients have moved-in to the Bridge House, they brought along their curious friend who stands watch!
Next it’s time to work-out the little kinks, including furnishings. As art enthusiasts and collectors, Lance and Laura have made it a priority to furnish both interior and exterior with art – starting with this friendly fellow.
He seems friendly yet curious, exuding just enough authority to help keep the peace.
Regional Modern Farmhouse design + pricing is underway and just about ready to spring forward into construction.
