We almost forgot to mention a few things! We're also involved in some amazing projects in our beloved community of Fayetteville. From the 7hills homeless center to residential projects both large and small!
Collegiate Housing Approved!
Our newest multifamily endeavor with Specialized Real Estate Group, the West Center collegiate housing project, was recently approved for Large Scale Development by the City of Fayetteville. We are looking forward to a busy spring fully designing this project!
Sterling Frisco Under Construction:
Concrete has been poured, the parking garage is going up, and so is the framing. So much excitement on one of the most prominent corners in Fayetteville. This has been a truly great experience for us and we're grateful for our clients and friends at Specialized Real Estate Group and Sterling University Housing.
Our very own Austin Chatelain traveled all the way to Big Cedar Lodge, just outside of Branson, MO to take part in the AIA Arkansas Chapter Board of Directors Leadership Planning Retreat. (Whew, that was a mouthful.) At the retreat Austin took part in reviewing the mission, vision, values and goals of the AIA Arkansas Chapter for 2012 and helped to solidify the plans for 2013. We are proud to have our studio members as active participants in the American Institute of Architects.
He also saw some amazing wildlife during the trip...
Modus in the Community:
modus studio is collaborating with the students from the University of Arkansas's Fay Jones School of Architecture design build studio to realize a new facility for the 7hills Homeless Center. We just completed the construction documents and they should be bringing out the tools soon!
On the residential front, we have three house renovations coming along quite nicely. We've been very fortunate to have incredible clients and the opportunity to work collaboratively with them to realize their ideal visions for daily living.
LEFT: The 604 Residence renovation + addition is all snug in sheathing and house wrap.
BELOW: A few images of the expansive windows wrapping the corner of 524. They shed light onto the living space and eventually onto a shelving spine that runs between the kitchen and living room.
BELOW, BELOW: Progress images of the beautiful little renovation of 560. You can really see the contrast between the old and the new!
Residential on the Boards:
We've also begun to design two new exciting residential designs! The Demaree Residence (LEFT) will be a new house on a beautiful site and the Dunn Residence is a renovation that will be set on an existing stone structure.
