Celebrating Residential Architecture: #HouseoftheDay

By on October 16, 2014. Posted in .

Celebrating Residential Architecture, Promoting the Value of Working with an Architect, and Encouraging Support among Architects… I am excited to be part of a group of small firm architects who are taking the time to do this… and are having fun while doing it!


Each week on our company Facebook pages we highlight houses that inspire us from 1 of the 50 United States.  So far we have covered 25 States! (Well, 24. One week was DC.) The daughter of one group member selects the state for the next week and we all post on Mondays. Studio MM joined in this “architecture challenge” with Keith from CogitateDesign PLLC + Nicholas from Cote Renard Architecture + lee CALISTI architecture+design. Since we started posting, others have gotten in on our FUN as well: Sean J. Tobin, Architect + Robert from Ross Design, Inc.+ Jes from Modus Operandi Design + Dan Rider from Cline Design Associates

In honor of #Archtober – a celebration of architecture + design during the month of October – and to highlight our #HouseoftheDay posts on Facebook, this week I am sharing some of our favorite houses…
Next week’s State is Tennessee. Please join us! (and share with us on Twitter.)
