The Horton Residence started o! as a simple, rectangular 500 sq ft addition to the owner’s existing 600 sq ft home in west Sebastopol, CA. Originally built in 1942 as a summer home for the family, the house now serves as the client’s primary residence. From the outset it was clear that this project had the potential to be something more than a simple addition, and that the whole house could be transformed into something very special. Among redwoods and in a stunning location adjacent to a seasonal creek, the project o!ered the opportunity to celebrate its setting and create a peaceful retreat for the owners.

The Evans Center for African American Studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design expands the University’s art museum by resurrecting the ruins of the only surviving antebellum railroad complex in the U.S. The project transformed a series of dilapidated freight warehouses originally built in 1853 by African slaves and incorporated them into a complex that includes galleries, art studios, classrooms, a 250-seat theatre, and public gardens. The 82,0000-square-foot expansion intentionally links the site’s historical and geographic context with its contemporary purpose; once part of the Underground Railroad, the Evans Center now celebrates African American art.
