15-30 House
Our studio (from left Todd Henderson, Guy Edwards & Elizabeth Walsh) site visit to our first house commission which has nearly finished construction.  I know we are biased but must say it is looking fantastic… can’t wait to see it completed.

Where the Magic Happens?!
This image on Creative Innovation's FaceBook site was too good not to repost.  It describes the possibility of thinking outside ones normal boundaries…  equally the circle labeled “Your Comfort Zone” could equally describe the “Extent of Your Experience”.  
Something to think about?

Holy Guacamole

With a timeframe of 2months from inception to opening night, the fitout of this new mexican restaurant & bar became for us as much about finding an interesting graphic brand as it was an exercise in producing a cost effective joinery with a reduced the material palette.  Super-graphic supplied by Nick Sheehy - http://showchicken.com/

Photos from the opening night… stay tuned for more to come!

Collaboration + Conversation

These diagrams illustrate different approaches to collaboration.  

In 1984George Orwell describes the best books as the ones that tell you what you already know. The first diagram (the original - sorry author unknown) illustrates this by pointing to the space between the two speech bubbles and appealing to our inherent sense of comfort when we find people who think the same way we do and share common ideas and goals. 

We adapted the diagram to show the inverse senario also to illustrate those things that others know that we don’t and the ideas that we disagree.  These are sometimes the most interesting because they challenge our thinking and take us in unexpected directions.

Both are important.

Sliced House - Work in Progress

Severely restricted by easements, set-backs, privacy requirements,  and existing buildings on the site, this house was located to take advantage of the views of the Tamar River.  A private, sheltered courtyard was created by removing a slice from the building which can act as an entry pavilion and bbq area.
