We are honored AIA San Antonio has recognized seven of our projects as part of their 2018 People+Place Awards. From local Confluence Park, to a prefabricated home in the Hudson Valley, to wineries in California— each project was designed uniquely to respond to the context of its place. Thank you AIA San Antonio and congratulations to all local architects and project teams who were recognized this year!
Confluence Park, in collaboration with Matsys
"This project was the result of a patient client who gives the architect freedoms to invent and innovate. With projects like this, we should all recognize the role of the client in creating this succesful architecture. The multiplicity of uses for such a space facilitates an investment in the community that allows the plaza to be something very special. The juxtaposition between the rough and the smooth materials and forms creates playful and engaging spaces."
"An exceptionally phenomenal space in both scale and form, extremely well executed. The clean and modernist forms and materials come together to form poetic moments throught the spaces and landscapes."
The Marine Education Center at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, in collaboration with unabridged Architecture
"This project exemplifies how playful elements and more serious architecture can coexist. The screens make for an interesting play of lighting and shadows that truly elevates this project."
Bellaire Residence, in collaboration with Natalye Appel Architects
"A variant body and positively tacit experience. The outdoor spaces and detailing of how steel, wood and concrete come together are exquisite... each room is given so much attention in terms of daylighting."
"Interesting to see the tremendous results from panelized construction, which can be so difficult to achieve. It's wonderful to see architecture that's not overly wrought. It sticks to a two-form house with a bridge connection yielding simple spaces and a highly resolved scheme."
Georgia Tech West Village Commons, in collaboration with Cooper Carry
"The project is a simple, elevated structure that turns a daunting, large building into beautiful pockets that feel independent from the whole...The use of multi-level terraces are especially nice."
"Outstanding in its elegant use of understated materials and integration into the site. It is unique in that it has a down to earth restrained palette on both the interior and the exterior."
