Sherman St. Addition

I'm happy to say the Sherman Street Addition is coming along nicely.  The design involved moving the kitchen to the new space and centering it inline with the existing fireplace.  With the new room in the existing house we were able to expand the dining room and add a butler's pantry.  Upstairs we added a luxury master suite with a deck.  Mick Silkworth of Silkworth Build is doing a great job, along with CMR Mechanical out of dexter.

NEW MASTER SUITE

The client was originally looking for a new studio addition to help the transition from a career in the performing arts to a retirement.  In the end we decided to turn the existing bedroom into the studio and add a new master suite.  I was able to stop in this week and see the construction, the project is moving along nicely and the owner is thrilled.  Built by Second Edition, Inc.

Davis Porch Addition Construction Underway

The client asked for a new screened in porch and mud room. I decided to minimize the roof structure and emphasize the detailing of the columns and headers.  As I had envisioned the extra care put into the detailing of the header adds some nice shadow lines and gives the house extra bit of class.  Construction of this project is in the care of SILKWORTH BUILD.  (Mick Silkworth 734-780-1557)

Lyndon Township Lake Cottage

I designed this small lake cottage as a second home in Lyndon Township.  It was a generous lot for a lake however there were a lot of trees we did not want to disturb.  The footprint is the product of the site constraints.

Green Road Addition

I spent some time in the last few days working on the schematic design for the Green Road Addition.  I put together a pretty simple schematic massing and then spent a bit of time in photoshop adding the entourage and lighting.

POP X SUBMISSION

Around Christmas time I spent a few days working on a design entry for the POP X festival pavilion design.  This was a great chance to flex some design muscles.  For this journal entry I'm going to focus on my train of thought while laying out a set of drawings that are meant to explain how a concept could be constructed to create an experience.

A day at the CNC shop

I went up to the shop a few days ago to cut out the pieces for the POP X prototype pavilion.  Here's a quick shot of how the CNC works.  Many thanks to Josh and Kurt at APE CNC for their help.

APE CNC and Huron Building Company join forces to create the pavilion for the POP X Ann Arbor Pavilion Prototype.

Joslin sketch plan

Joslin Lake Cabin is a small cottage located on an old bible camp.  The vernacular of the existing buildings is very simple and campy, Its like being in a Wes Anderson film.  This new cottage will fit that look.
