An Austin Courtyard House Turns Geometry into Dynamic Domesticity

Pro-File: Seeking the Thinnest Roofline Possible

Seeking the Thinnest Roofline Possible

Nestled in the Virginia Highlands, one of Atlanta’s toniest neighborhoods, is a diminutive Mid-Century house recently resuscitated with a very light hand. The modesty of the intervention is the first thing one notices upon touring the house. The second notable aspect is that it exists at all amid the pseudo-Tudors, period bungalows, and new builder-spec…

Vernacular in Vermont

Mention the words “New England farmhouse” and nearly everyone in the United States can conjure an image in their heads of what it looks like: a white gabled building wrapped in a protective porch, anchoring its surroundings with dignity and sobriety.

Alphin Design Build Remodels Its Identity

Once upon a time, new companies branded themselves after their founders. There was something solid and trustworthy about a real, accountable person standing behind a product or service.
