Hello Summer! Hello New Projects!
This year’s spring season brought rain to the bay area, allowing the beauty of many of our projects to flourish. Lush landscapes called for professional photo shoots and we’re happy to announce that we’ll be unveiling four newly photographed projects in the next few months!
Pictured below is one of our Palo Alto homes, lovingly coined The Sanctuary.
As many of you know, we hosted an Open House at the end of May to benefit those affected by the North Bay fires. We’re pleased to say it was a wonderful success and we were able to raise $8,500 for our cause while spending time with our colleagues and friends. If anyone is still interested in donating, please visit Rebuild Wine Country’s donation page.
For those of you who have not had a chance to visit our new Firehouse Design Studio yet, never fear! We’ll hopefully be hosting more events and presentations later this year.
This summer we’ve been excited to welcome not one, not two, but three interns to our office! Parker joined us in mid-May and was a great help in preparing for our Open House. He’s currently going into his second year at Syracuse as an Architecture student.
Ying arrived next in June through an internship program at UC Berkeley. She’s been delving into a couple projects around the office and working closely with fellow UC Berkeley alum Evan.
West is our youngest intern this summer having just graduated high school. He’ll be attending Drexel University in the fall as a Mechanical Engineering major and is being exposed to the ins and outs of the design profession. He’s been working with our Studio Assistant Serena, sitting in on staff, client, and consultant meetings, and gathering general exposure to all facets of our office
Every season is awards season, and this past spring was especially kind to us.
dosa by DOSA was awarded a Gold Nugget Merit Award for Best Commercial Project under 20,000sqft as well as the Best Commercial Architecture Practice – California & Best US Hospitality Design Project Award from the BUILD 2018 Architecture Awards.
One of our newly completed projects, Twin Peaks, won the Chrysalis National Award – Whole House Remodel over $700k. Stay tuned for more photos and information coming soon!
As a firm, we are committed to staying current in areas of design, innovation, and sustainability. Our designers frequently attend nation-wide professional conferences, trade shows, lectures and seminars in search of innovation. Just this year, we have participated in the Getting to Zero National Forum, the Living Future UnConference, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), and multiple Design Weeks in different states!
Summers are also for weddings and we happily congratulate Rebecca Hora and her husband Ryan Gilbert who were married in a beautiful ceremony in Connecticut just last weekend! Currently relaxing on a beach somewhere in Tahiti, she’ll be back in the office mid-July. Congratulations to you both!!
Here’s to taking on the second half of the year. We hope everyone keeps the positive momentum going and we hope to see you all soon!
