Designing Our Future #10 | Faking It

Why Asheville Needs New Design Guidelines

635658300605119947-BBT-FINAL3Thanks to our colleague for pointing out this article to us by Laura Berner Hudson who serves on the Planning Commission. The article in Mountain Xpress reflects some of our sentiments here, but she expresses our need to better our city’s design criteria so much better — so let’s let her take over the dialogue. Click here for the article. Cheers!

Laura says,”When serious, authentic architecture is rejected in favor of simulacra, we exchange reality for a mythical past where everything is made to resemble what might have been. In turn, we blur the boundary between copies and genuine history. It is the elaboration of continuously changing ideas that makes a city truly authentic, and if we don’t embrace this vitality and diversity, we risk becoming a generic, theme park version of what we never were instead of an authentic manifestation of who we truly are.”

the Sinclair | Modern Urban Luxe

Sinclair-Ext-19-yes-all_squareYesterday, we were able to sneak in a quick, private peak of the swanky, new temporary stay units at 59 Broadway downtown know as the Sinclair. Wow! We were super impressed with the level of sophisticated design and detailing. The warm European style interiors blended light industrial touches with clean Danish modern textures and just a bit of mid-century thrown in. Overall, it was very mindfully put together. The vision was pulled together by a team of people including the owners and designer Traci Kearns of Alchemy Design. Cheers to the team!Sinclair 02

Designing Our Future | 010

Less Charlotte | More Copenhagen

As a designer, realtor and resident of Asheville I have had fantasies that the development of our city was influenced by more European lifestyle models, as opposed to, American ones.
BUILD-111-500x375

I’m not alone in this thinking given multiple conversations with business partners, friends and neighbors. I’m particularly drawn to the design, cultural and sustainable influences of Scandinavian countries. Many times I’ve attempted to capture these thoughts over the years, but recently found these articles by Build LLC out of Seattle that seem to pick up on the spirit behind these thoughts.

“The principles that the Danes operate with and the philosophy that they exude seem to make for an ideal environment — a deliberate environment. What we learned about life and design while living in Scandinavia influences every house we design and every dinner party we throw”

As you read through these two articles, Studies, Scandinavia & Schnapps & 10 Things We Learned in Scandinaviathink about how it could apply to both the environment, culture and spirit of the city we love and the evolution into our shared future. How do you want to live and what do you want us to become? Proost!BUILD-051-500x375
