Setting the Stage for Sustainability: Arrigoni Woods Featured in Art Basel Exhibit

Thursday, February 9, 2017
For us, it was a dream come true on so many different levels. To see our product and craftsmanship featured in a joint exhibit by Art Basel and Design Miami, the global forum for art and design, was in itself a proud moment. None of us had dared to imagine the world’s most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics exploring our work in a museum-quality exhibit.

From Dated 1950s Home to Dream City Dwelling Before and After

Set in Denver’s quaint Bonnie Brae neighborhood, this two-story International Style home hadn’t been touched since it was built in 1950. Amanda Precourt, owner of AJP Realty & Design, was drawn to the home’s retro details—blonde exterior brick, a boxy facade, flat rooflines, glass-block windows in the entryway—and generous lot size. But small and scant windows, compartmentalized rooms and passé hard finishes (read: pink and turquoise tile) made the interiors dark and dated.

Smart technology helps a house in Aspen, Colorado, stay on its sustainable course.

The Aspen residence of architects Sarah Broughton and John Rowland aims to leave the pristine local landscape intact. “Every drop of water that lands on the property finds its way to the bocce ball court, which is our storm-water filtration system,” Rowland says. “By the time it leaves, and heads to the aquifer, it’s as pure as it can get.”

“People say modernism is minimalist—if everything looks so clean, it must be easy,” Jones says. “In truth, it’s exactly the opposite. It’s easier to apply more and more layers of wood to cover up the sins of framing or the natural materials. Making it trim-less or with minimal trim is more challenging. It’s a challenge we as a company and our carpenters are into. We like to make it as clean as possible we look for those details that can show off the contemporary style.”

As the builder, Tom worked with a team of architects and designers who listen carefully to the homeowner's requests. "They wanted to have the look of a Texas ranch house, and we achieved that with the stonework and the wider covered verandas that invite you to just sit outside and enjoy the view," Tom says. Attention to detail, from the hammered steel metalwork and the wire-distressed wood for the interior to the careful selection of the reclaimed Austrian pines for both the floor and the ceiling beams, defines this home as both timeless and welcoming.

For more than eight decades, the historic Wardman Tower at Connecticut Avenue and Woodley Road NW in the Woodley Park section of Washington has captured the attention of countless commuters and tourists on their way uphill to the National Zoo or downhill to Dupont Circle.

Each spring the corner is awash with bright blooms that draw the eye from the street up the gentle slope to the distinctive Georgian Revival-style apartment building, which is wrapped by 2.5 acres of manicured gardens.

Before designing any residence, a thoughtful architect will aim to gain a firsthand understanding of the site: how it relates to the landscape; the impact of the seasons; where the sun rises and sets at different times of year; where snow accumulates and where the winds blow. But most architects have only a few days to gather such impressions.
