Tom Kundig, Architect
Studio House, 1997
970 NW Elford Drive, Seattle, WA
The Studio House stands as Tom Kundig’s breakthrough project – one that brought him in contact with a patron who was excited to experiment with raw materials in creating an interactive dwelling that was "rooted in the past, yet predictive of the future." Intentionally rustic and proven materials, such as structural steel and concrete are celebrated for the strength and connection to the elements that they provide, yet spaces are carefully edited, adhering to the disciplined, modernist line that has come to define Kundig’s work.
The strict massing of the structure and meticulous sighting are gleefully contrasted with playfully interactive and industrial
Pierre Koenig, F.A.I.A.
with modifications by Designer Robert Sweet
7127 Crest Road, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
The Henbest-Birkett Residence, 1966-2011
The clarity of Pierre Koenig’s original vision is enhanced by designer Robert Sweet’s sensitive re-interpretation, and expansion of the Henbest Residence in Rancho Palos Verdes. The key to maintaining the spirit of Koenig within the context of change is Sweet’s studied simplicity of form, and his use of materials which don’t slavishly copy the original fabric, but quietly acknowledge and compliment Koenig’s overall body of work. The result is a new expression of the modernist aesthetic which, with its further elimination of indoor-outdoor distinctions, brings the celebrated California Modern lifestyle solidly into the 21st

Richard Bergmann FAIA, ASLA
The Fitch-Ayres-Perkins Residence
63 Park Street, New Canaan, CT
This beautifully restored, 1836 Greek Revival house—where famed editor and publishing legend Maxwell Perkins read and edited the manuscripts of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway, and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings—is on the National Register of Historic Places. A generous garden, which offers a contemporary landscape with a geometric plan inspired in part by Le Notre, is included in the Smithsonian’s Archives for American Gardens. Though the house and garden offer privacy, the location is 88 steps from the New Canaan train station (as Perkins used to say) with its rush-hour through trains to Grand Central Station.
Inside, a spare, modern aesthetic and a large
