Projects and Inspiration
This page showcases our current and previous architectural design projects as well as other architect’s work that inspires us. We hope you enjoy looking through the commercial and residential architecture design projects that we’ve completed in Oregon, Montana, and Washington.
Our passion is fueled by the ambition to deliver the most creative and innovative solutions for your project. To do so, we constantly have to stay curious about what’s going on in the world of architecture. Therefore, this page also includes posts about the latest architectural trends that inspire us, along with our personal projects to hopefully inspire you.
Our Favorite Top Architectural Design Trends of 2019
There is a big push towards creating more sustainable, eco-friendly, and budget-friendly housing. The tiny houses trend began in 2018 and has been trending ever since. These tiny houses are becoming increasingly popular in densely populated areas, where people are short on space. Creating small spaces with big character is now a new challenge we as architects face.
Fire Resistant Construction
Because we live in the greater Northwest, we are becoming more and more aware of the potential for wildfires. Look what happened recently in Australia for example. As another example, The Chetco Bar fire in SW Oregon burned approximately 191,125 acres in 2017, including my childhood home. Rural properties are usually required to have a minimal fire break around the house to help protect against fires, but most houses have roof ventilation. Typically this involves a low elevation air intake at the roof eave and a high elevation air exhaust. In this instance it is very hared to prevent a spark from a nearby fire from being pulled into the attic space thru the air vent. Once the spark is in there its very difficult to extinguish. Don’t fear! We have a way to eliminate this point of access!
As we live in Eugene, we’re quite familiar with the concept of recycled spaces. This movement isn’t new to us. We love breathing new life into spaces that have traditionally been used for other purposes or concepts. Recycling spaces allow us to decrease the costs of construction, consume less, and be greener. In Fact, we recently won the Eugene Mayors Choice 1st Place in 2019 for our creative architectural design solutions.
