2018 Spring Newsletter
Spring Has Arrived at the Firehouse!
Despite the rainy weather in the first few months of 2018, we’ve been keeping busy here at Feldman Architecture with staff hires, exciting events, and new projects on the horizon!
We’re pleased to announce that our recently completed Slot House(below) in Los Altos Hills will be showing at the 2018 AIA Silicon Valley Home Tours on May 5th!
Purchase tickets for the event here!
On Thursday, May 31st, we will be hosting an Open House in our newly renovated Firehouse Design Studio. We are looking forward to officially introducing our firm to the neighborhood!
In addition to welcoming neighbors, colleagues, and friends to our new home, we have partnered with Rebuild Wine Country and will be raising money during our event to support efforts to rebuild the communities that are still recovering from the North Bay Fires last October.
We will be holding a raffle during the event and would greatly appreciate any gifts you would consider contributing. If your company would like to participate by donating goods or services for our raffle, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All participating companies will be added to our sponsors list and acknowledged via newsletter after the event!If you’re interested in giving a monetary donation to our cause, please do so HERE! Thank you for your support!
Feldman Architecture is continuing our commitment to the AIA 2030 Challenge, pushing our buildings to be carbon neutral by the year 2030. Last month we hosted our local 2030 Working Group, where sustainability leaders from firms across the city came together to discuss their progress towards meeting their ‘green goals.’
We looked at the data we’ve collected, issues we have come across, and strategies to reach carbon neutrality. Reporting for 2017 was due at the end of March, and the group will meet again soon to look at how we all fared on our way to meeting our 2030 goals.
We’ve also already welcomed three new faces to the team this year! Serena Brown joined the firm as our newest studio assistant. She’s recently returned to the bay area after living a year abroad in Japan. Quick to pick up the inner workings of the office, she is now working to expand her architectural knowledge. Chris Kay (the second Chris in our office now) recently moved to San Francisco from Birmingham, Alabama. He’s worked in machine shops and robotics labs and is excited to turn his attention back to his first love– architecture. Michael Trentacosti is our newest hire and comes to us from New York. He is passionate about green design which is reflected in both his work and his love for the outdoors.
Some of our staff members have had the opportunity to travel in the recent months. We’re especially jealous of Ben and Matt who traveled to East Asia and Africa respectively. Stay tuned for more on their adventures on our blog later this month!
With our portfolio constantly expanding, we invite you to follow us on social media. Please check out our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Houzz and of course our website to view all of our latest projects. We hope everyone has had a successful and fulfilling 2018 so far and we look forward to connecting with you all this year!
