Stephen Guerrant, A.I.A.
The Schweibert Residence, 1980
625 Oak Street, Winnetka, IL
With his modern interpretation of a New England saltbox, Stephen Guerrant's 1980 design of the Schweibert Residence introduces a post-modern aesthetic to an older, established neighborhood of period piece homes. While the design is indeed progressive, the symmetry of broad, low-slung roofline and careful placement of shingles blends in mellifluously with its Tudor and Colonial Revival neighbors. Guerrant's forward-thinking inclusion of geometric shapes predates the post-modern designs which came to dominate American landscape in the ensuing decades, thus establishing the Schweibert's home as a forerunner of the next chapter in vernacular architecture in the United States.

Fidalgo Island Lookout
2020 Kansas Avenue, Anacortes, WA
Designed by Richard T. Broderick of Sparkitecture Design Solutions. This 2500 square foot cliff house is elegantly sited on a commanding bluff with ocean and vivid San Juan Islands sunsets. The site falls in a number of steep intervals onto a lower terrace before tumbling further still into a lush tangle of brush and evergreens bordering protected wetlands below. The structure opted for simple, site-informed massing - a trio of stacked rectangular boxes, one more elongated than the last, wedged into the cliffside. The three floors were arranged according to a distinct functional hierarchy – living/social areas on the main first level; master suite in the middle incorporating two separate
457 Osage Ridge Road, Augusta, MO
