Mixed Use Complex
290 Townsend Street, Telluride, CO
Mixed Use Complex: Contemporary 2 + bedroom and 4 bedroom penthouse plus commercial space. Born of controversy but now celebrated, the creative vision of New York architects Smith-Miller and Hawkinson and dogged persistence of the owner expanded this resort town’s vision of compatibility within its National Historic District. Using the vernacular of Telluride’s mining and commercial buildings rather than the traditional foursquare late Victorian, and Gothic revival residences which predominate, a dynamic space for modern living and working has been achieved. Here at Plunge Landing, just steps from the gondola, the residence is elevated over its commercial space thus allowing
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.

Pierre Koenig, F.A.I.A.
with modifications by Architect 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
