from the editor

  • in plain sight

    The trouble with being a visionary is sometimes you have to wait 30 years for the rest of the world to catch up to you.

     

home front

  • solar flair

    It's easy enough to slap solar panels onto a roof, but integrating them into a graceful residential design is a tougher assignment.

     
  • aqua moderne

    Ponder this: You're at work, juggling the obligations of your thriving practice, and then you hear the chirp, squawk of the fax machine.

bath

  • bath: hidden help

    The standard sink fit into the apron of the countertop in Barb and Hans Gasterland's first-floor powder room is a good example of the kinds of design touches that architect Rosemary McMonigal used throughout the house.

  • Top Firm: Frank Harmon Architect

    Frank Harmon has won his fair share of accolades for design over the years.
