As an architect, I prepare drawings every day – so why is preparing drawings on your own house so terrible? There are many possibilities …
Modern stairs are governed by million rules and regulations – designing one that looks simple is anything but simple.
Retaining walls are boring, lets be honest about that shall we? But with a little bit of thought, you can make this beast of burden into something that makes a powerful design statement. I will show you how.
Despite the “I like to party naked for everyone to see” vibe that exists in this shower, the silliness of this room has finally broken my architectural spirit.
This is week is a Dallas CASA Parade of Playhouses week. Today I wanted to focus on another playhouse that my office is doing – The Planter House – designed by our new associate Scott Taylor.
Designed in 1991 by Samuel Mockbee and Coleman Coker, this is one of the best houses in all of Seaside – a place where there are houses by famous architects on every street.
The design and construction drawings for this years Dallas CASA Playhouse are finally done. Hard to believe there are so many drawings to build something so small.
It appears that toilets by the front door are making a come-back. Placing toilets by the front door is a terrible idea unless it is handled properly – and by properly I mean not by the front door.
Not everything I do is big picture design – from the overall time spent, very little is – but I consider coordinating a project and the details of the construction of that project integral to a successful design.
This project is a case study in what can happen when a great client gets together with a flexible architect.
