Happy 5th Anniversary, D+A Studio

Our 5th year has been a big one for us, complete with being featured in numerous publications both regional and national, a regional design award, invitations to speak and present our projects, forays into writing with the launch of design.banter and articles for Builder/Architect Magazine, and of course, continually striving to provide quality design to our clients.

It has been a good year in particular for the San Juan Channel House, a green custom home on San Juan Island. (More photos of the San Juan Channel House can be viewed on our Facebook page)

Here is a look back at some of the highlights of the past year:

March 2010: BuilderNEWS, a national building magazine, features the Hare House Guest House and an interview with Anna

November 2009: The San Juan Channel House is certified Built Green 3 Star.  

October 2009: D+A Studio is selected by the AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE) to give a presentation on transitioning to Design Build.

October 2009: The San Juan Channel House is featured in Builder/Architect Magazine: "Small House, Big Design." 

This also marks Anna and Anne's debut as some of the resident "Green" experts for the Seattle/Puget Sound edition of Builder/Architect Magazine. Our articles have appeared in a handful of issues this past year (including "Simple Steps for Greener Interiors," January 2010 and "Design Build: An Avenue for Women in Construction and Green Building," March 2010).

September 2009: The San Juan Channel House was chosen to be presented at the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild's Annual Green Building Slam.

July 2009: The San Juan Channel House is featured in Seattle Magazine Northwest Home: Island Adventure


April 2009: The San Juan Channel House is named a Top 10 What Makes it Green? Project by the Seattle Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The winning projects were featured in  AIA Seattle's traveling exhibition.

In 2010, we look forward to the completion of our first official Design Build project through Studio How, the Hare House Main House.  

Thanks to all who have helped make our first five years a success!
