We are thrilled to share two articles that were published this week about our recent AIA / HUD Secretary’s award-winning project in Port Townsend, Washington.

The first is by Fast Company, and features a discussion with FabCab architect Don Argus on how we integrate universal design into our work, as well additional context about accessible housing solutions.

The second is by the Port Townsend Leader, a local news publication where the home was built. It features an interview with the homeowners themselves, and provides context on some of their particular needs. It also includes thoughts by FabCab program manager, Bruce Waltar, and gives an overview of the awards program itself.


FabCab featured in Mountain Living

Idaho FabCab
We’re delighted to share that the May/June 2014 Mountain Living issue arrived at our front door today with a sweet six-page article about the 550-square-foot timber frame retreat we designed for a pair of empty nesters in Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho.

The article includes photos of the home’s interior alongside quotes from FabCab principal architect, Emory Baldwin, and provides insight into the team’s approach for integrating the modern timber frame structure into the surrounding natural beauty and optimizing the lake views.

Incorporating the owners’ own Herman Miller pieces into the home completes the modern aesthetic and the final result is a dwelling which seems much larger than its small footprint suggests.

We are thankful to have had the chance to work with Mountain Living on this piece.
