Winter Newsletter 2018
New York Times Announcement & Winter News
Good tidings! Here at Feldman Architecture we’re constantly pushing and encouraging our clients towards sustainable design. Jonathan used his recently remodeled house as a testing ground and it achieved LEED Platinum. An article on its features and the design process was included in the NY Times just last week! We’re grateful to have worked with talented writer Tim McKeough and photographer Matthew Millman to make this story come to life. Congrats to the whole team: Ground Studio Landscape, Jeff King & Company, and Strandberg Engineering.
To read the article, head on over to nytimes.com or if you’re on the East Coast, pick up an edition of last Sunday’s paper!
We’re extremely happy to be ending 2018 strong. The Meadow Home was featured in the latest edition of Luxe and our Butterfly House was given a second life on ArchDaily thanks to beautiful landscape photos by Jason Liske and Ground Studio Landscape.
The Sanctuary received the Honor Award in the AIA Silicon Valley Design Awards this past October and we’d like to extend a thanks and congratulations to the full team: Ground Studio Landscape, Urban Tree Management, Romig Engineers, Strandberg Engineering, BKF Engineers, and Baywest Builders.
One project that has progressed substantially this winter is our Round House in Los Altos Hills. This unique remodel is a perfect circle, which presented challenges and excitement for architect, builder, and client alike. In order to build the circular form, a giant compass was designed and installed during the framing process, which you can see in this video from Baywest Builders.
Our office is constantly growing and just this month we welcomed Laura Knight to the family! Laura joined our firm following a recent move from Boston, Massachusetts where she established herself as a technically skilled and innovative designer. During her tenure at Boston Architectural College, Laura began working in design full-time, seeing several large-scale Boston area residential developments through to completion. After three years of professional design, Laura made the move to California to pursue her passion of smaller, more personal residential projects. Welcome Laura!
Our new Studio Culture page is now live on our website! At Feldman Architecture we believe in the importance of a positive office culture that stresses fun and collaboration. For many unseen and candid shots of our staff, click here!
Speaking of office culture… we’re in the heart of the holiday season but as you can see we’ve been celebrating for months! Here are a few moments from Halloween, our Thanksgiving potluck, and White Elephant Party.
From all of us at Feldman Architecture, we wish you warm holidays filled with great cheer. Thank you for being a friend to our firm this year and we look forward to fostering more relationships in 2019.
