Kelly and I had the privilege of touring this home twice during construction right up until completion, along with, Elihu and Michael of Siegman Associates. As always, their ability to design with the site in mind stood out. The house flowed with the contours of the site both taking advantage of views and creating private garden spaces to maximize the indoor/outdoor living that we treasure here in WNC.
Congrats to all the Designers, Builders and Craftspeople who won awards last night at the AHBA Awards Ceremony. There are lots of inspiring homes and work out there. Haven’t seen them yet? You still have this weekend for the Asheville Home Builder’s Association Parade of Homes. Get the skinny here. Cheers!

“Not-So-Utopian Futures: Solar & Climate Architecture of the 1950s”.
We are excited to share with you this great opportunity. What can we learn from cutting edge, sustainable mid-century modern architecture? On Thursday evening, November 1, AIA Asheville and CASE, present a lecture, “Not-So-Utopian Futures: Solar & Climate Architecture of the 1950s”. Networking and refreshments 5:00pm, lecture to begin at 6:00pm
The lecture, by Daniel A. Barber, will discuss how solar house heating methods and techniques of climatic design were essential aspects of the global architectural discussion in the period surrounding World War II. These “techno-cultural” developments produced novel designs that emphasized the role of architecture as a practice to present new ideas to connect the built environment with the natural environment.
For more information go here. We hope to see you there. Cheers! Kelly and Troy

Notable American Architect Robert Venturi recently passed away at the age of 93. For me he was a household name and figure I grew up with having driven by a local fire station he designed almost everyday in my youth in Columbus, Indiana.
The New York Times wrote this week: For much of the 20th century, “serious” architects, led by Le Corbusierand Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, favored unadorned surfaces and strictly geometric forms. But in his treatise “Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture,” published in 1966, Mr. Venturi argued that ornament, historical allusions and even humor had a place in modern architecture. The book was a retort to Mies’s assertion that “less is more.” “Less is a bore,” Mr. Venturi wrote.
