Nestled in a 50’s era suburb, the design program called for two items: renovating the entry façade of a modest home and adding a screened porch to the backyard.  However, the client had a strict construction budget. In response, the role of the porch was doubled to serve both as a dynamic façade for the front elevation and as a casual outdoor gathering space.

WSDG Partner/Senior Project Manager Romina Larregina has spearheaded the program since its inception. Working closely with company principal/architect/acoustician John Storyk she has supervised each construction project to insure the highest level of pro audio educational professionalism.  “John Storyk’s commitment to education was a primary catalyst behind The Art Institutes decision to retain WSDG for this major assignment,” Larregina says.  “His extensive lecturing background, coupled with our 40-year + history of creating world-class studios for artists ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Alicia Keys and Bruce Springsteen, made us an obvious choice for this expansive, on-going project.”

“DO IT BEFORE NOT AFTER” – floating structures operation – A new way to think at disaster The worlds is becoming more and more sensitive to the climate changing, that, according to the most reputed studies, will have heavy and often dramatic effects on the earth and on us.

This is the aim of this competition too. In medicine there are mostly two ways to try to reduce the impact of diseases on people; one is to cure and the other one is to prevent.

The design direction for an 800 sf master suite addition was determined by the peninsular shape of the property and the desire to respect the 1950’s post & beam house. The addition’s orientation emerged as the negotiation between the existing house, the sloping site, and a beloved sycamore tree.
