As the economy heats up we’ve found ourselves discussing the design process and what to expect with potential clients repeatedly. We decided it would be good to share some of this information with you. We know many of you want to build or do a remodel but, like most of our clients, have little idea how much it will cost, how to budget for it or how the process works..

Hart Wright Architects recently visited Lightning Field, a land art piece designed by Walter De Maria in the 1970s. De Maria just died last month and we write to say how sad we are to know that he is gone and we remember him by showing our images and knowledge about this great work.
We have been on many runs through San Francisco. Running is our exercise, our therapy and a way to be out looking around. We’d like to share shots we’ve taken while on runs from now on, a little at a time. There is more to see when you experience the city on foot, not to mention, its easier to stop and observe when there’s no bike, bus or car. On.
We thought this project in the furniture section on our website could use an explanation. This is a piece of furniture we designed for a remodeled 1950′s typical San Francisco box shaped house where flexibility is valued. It consists of three arrangable modular box forms. The piece is used in a living room with an open plan connected to a dining area and kitchen. This relatively small room functions as.
We recently took a trip to Austin to attend the annual Austin Psych Fest music festival. As always when we travel, we find design inspiration. While there, we were able to explore Hyde Park and North Loop. We love looking at buildings and especially houses wherever we travel. We could have spent a lot more time there, but nevertheless, here are some interesting houses for our collection.
Here is a bit of insight into our inspirations outside architecture. Below are a few photos from my weekend running adventure in the Grand Canyon, early May, 2013. Having been to Grand Canyon National Park three times in the past, I didn’t think I would be as impressed with its spectacle but my mind changed when Jenn Pattee, Alex Ho and I arrived at the South Rim at sunset on.
What exactly is Mid-Century Modern? It generally describes a period of style immediately following World War Two that influenced American product design and architecture for a generation. This period had its origins in the 1930s and spanned well into the 1960s. Think of the work of Charles and Ray Eames for furniture design as a good example of the style. Their pieces are utilitarian, functional and were created from readily.
It’s always satisfying when, nearing the end of a remodel project, the client adds a fun mini project to finish off the experience. In this case we were asked to design a new rectangular dining table that would integrate into a dining room that contained both old and new cabinetry and would be used on a daily basis. We subsequently nick-named the table “Coda” When an opportunity to check on.
The holiday season is always a reason to have a deadline. This year we are hosting guests. We needed to make our house more comfortable, and we knew we did not have enough seating for everyone, so we focused on building chairs. One reason we felt we could meet this deadline is that over the years, we’ve created a stock pile of scrap material (mostly wood) from various projects and.
On October 13th, 2012, the AIA hosted a panel discussion on women in architecture. The discussion was centered on the statistic that although 50% of architecture students are women, only 18% of them are licensed architects. The main questions with regard to this statistic that were the basis of the event were, 1. is this a problem, and 2. if it is a problem what needs to be done to.
