Modernism Week is an exciting celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture and culture in Palm Springs, California.  This design aesthetic originated in the 1940's, 50's + 60's and was typified by clean simple lines which came to define desert modernism.
Modernism Week is filled with a variety of events including architectural tours, films, lectures, an architectural symposium, educational events, and chic parties...... all hosted in cool mid-century homes and boutique hotels.  It's happening February 16-26.  Get the Modernism Week  App for your iPhone, + I'll see you there.

About a year ago I noted a comprehensive ground up lake house project we had undertaken in Naramata BC.  It's been a great year, working with our clients to design the house to perfectly suit their vision. As it nears completion we're getting excited to see the results of all our work.  On our last site visit there was a flurry of activity, with both wood ceilings and floors being installed.  The project is being skillfully crafted by Barnett Construction.  So much of what is reflected on the surface, or not reflected, is the result of careful planning and thoughtful execution.   Barnett Construction have been stellar to work with, translating construction documents into a built reality that befits our deign intentions.  We're planning a late spring installation, and an incredible first summer in their new lake house for our clients.

Western Living

The Dream Homes Jan/Feb 2012 edition of Western Living features two of our projects.   One is a private jet interior, written by James Roxby Stewart.  The second is a penthouse residence interior, written by Michael Harris. It's great to have these projects included in the dream home issue, many thanks to everyone involved at the publication.  I believe all of the residences we create, become dream homes for our clients.  
Happy new year, dream on!
