A Tale of Two Levels (cont.)

So here is an earlier drawing where I was looking at the possibilities from head-on; that is, from a person looking from the lower level. I liked this look . . . but wasn’t sure if it was working. Then after I was done scribbling this I noticed that the wall heights were really 3… Continue reading A Tale of Two Levels (cont.)

A Tale of Two Levels

[ A ink line drawing, for me this one one of many concept sketches of the area. ] Possible solution for some student seating between two apartment buildings for upper level and graduate students.

A statement so clear in vision, so simple in design, so darn obvious in execution: “A vase should never, in the open air, be set down… Continue reading Vases in the Garden

Holmes on Homes(2)

Mike Holmes hits the nail on the head; again, so to speak. Friday nights episode “Semi Dilemma”(04/11) on Discovery Home(DTV286) was a great one for me because there were some good “Holmesism’s”(I just made up this word). We(viewers of the show) are all familiar with lines like: “Bring it all down” “Unbelievable” “Okay, tear it… Continue reading Holmes on Homes(2)
