Three very different residential projects working at the moment, each one fascinating.
The Sawyer Residence is a slick and funky little puzzle on a site that's far too small. Which is why it's fun. A modern interpretation of the classic New Orleans raised basement form, it's intended as a smart little home for a realtor with taste. It's also a fine excuse to learn this new-fangled BIM 3D software.
The Eustis Residence near Bayou St. John in New Orleans is a beautiful old house filled with music and art. I'm helping the wonderful Feldmeier/Galyean add in a mother-in-law/hootenany room, and re-work some of the living spaces. There's an added bonus of two lovely, smart, and talented clients, a musician and an artist.
The Mummy Residence, with Calabrese Architects, is a second home on a remote mountainside outside of Seattle. Dedicated to the Owner's late wife, a sculptor, it includes a sculpture gallery integrated into the heavy timber framing and lit by expansive windows open to the mountain views. Secretly, it's also designed to lure the kids and grandkids out to the mountain for long visits.
