Excellent article from the American Institute of Architects. Check this out if you are thinking of how and why it pays to invest in your home and engage an experienced architect to make smart choices.
In kitchens where upper cabinets terminate into a corner, the storage use can be limited for shorter arms - ! A more attractive resolution that adds visual interest and openness (see photo) is an open shelf detail into the corner. It allows for functional storage (our clients pretty cast iron enamel pots in this case) as well as color and texture with the walnut shelves.
Great photo on the roof of our project at 819 6th St., NW!

(Apologies to Nathan from SCH and Jaime from TMB who weren’t present but did most of the work!). We will post you too - don’t worry.
Some of us from Studio CrowleyHall at the new Philz Coffee in DC. Those of you from San Francisco will know why we are excited.
Great quick video of the role of the architect in residential projects. Check it out!
Great example of how a few simple fixtures can quietly liven up a space. Sadly, they're custom :(.
DC row house where we installed solar panels. Produces about 1/3 of the power needs of this residence with a payback if 3 - 5 years. Note the whole house exhaust fan in the background - moves about 5 air exchanges in 10 minutes for the entire house - creates a great soft breeze for those warm days with cool nights in the Spring and Fall. Takes the load off the AC system with significantly less energy use.
Beautiful use of stone for an entry sidewalk. Dry laid in sand, the stone shapes were worked to fit together in a nicely structured 'random' pattern. The work of a good mason!
