The Club at MCO opens

Just received the first photos of the Club at MCO, the airline lounge we designed in Orlando that opened last week. The lounge primarily serves British Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa, and Priority Pass customers. Just starting design on another one in a different terminal. We're lucky to have such a great client!

Construction is underway on our latest first class lounge project, the Club at MCO. Located in the Greater Orlando International Airport, it will serve Emirates, British Airways, Lufthansa and Priority Pass customers. The 160 seat lounge features a variety of settings for dining, relaxing, or working and is scheduled to open this fall.

Craft and woodworking

Those devoted to fine woodworking have a rigorous code of craftsmanship, eschewing screws and nails in favor of joinery (and white glue).  One such millwork purist is my friend Tom Eilerson, who typically only builds furniture and cabinetry of his own design, usually for himself or friends, featuring various species of woods and immaculate detailing. So I was thrilled when offered to construct the media unit I designed for our Washburn home. Fabricated of solid maple with anodized aluminum supports, the unit will sit between the Dining and Living areas and will contain the stereo equipment with the TV sitting above. The piece presented a number of technical challenges, particularly the pleated screen, that he accomplished with virtually no mechanical fasteners. The main cabinet edges are beautifully dovetailed and the door faces carry the grain consistently across the unit. Although the clear lacquer finish is yet to be applied the exquisite quality of the work is obvious.

Ferrari of Houston

The construction of the Ferrari of Houston showroom in The Woodlands is now complete. The project required an extremely high level of craftsmanship and precision, so we were very fortunate to have Sedalco as our general contractor. Once the furniture is placed and the Ferraris arrive it is sure to be a must-see destination. And many thanks to our client for selecting us for this prestigious assignment. Forza Ferrari!

I Look Up (at 3850 Washburn)

The American Institute of Architects has rolled out a public awareness campaign titled I Look Up. So in that spirit here is a photo of the nearly completed 3850 Washburn residence in the morning sun.

Thanks to our wonderful clients and talented staff, 2014 was an exciting year. And while I have been terribly remiss in not posting more frequent updates, we have been very busy. There are completed projects that we have yet to photograph and others that are still under construction. So, my New Year's resolution is to post updates more frequently! Here's to a great 2015!
