artful living

Condos, Churches, Schools & Commercial

Outside of how they are used, large-scale public buildings and commercial buildings are no different than houses – they still need to look good in their environment. Sensitivity to the landscape and the relationship of the building to neighboring structures remains essential. Our viewpoint and approach to handling color is just as carefully considered when working with these more challenging structures. When working with the buildings shown here, it was essential for us to understand the greater context of building’s use and the personalities of the many inhabitants. Here we chose colors to meet a variety of needs: honoring history, respecting neighbors, satisfying the tastes of many stakeholders, even inspiring students.
