Each time I'm designing elevations I find myself returning to images of this building. The variety, detail and depth achieved in this project is incredible. Not to mention its respectful contextual integration between several existing heritage buildings.


I think I have to work for these guys, they have some lessons to teach me.

Lambert LEED Home, adaptive re-use, 2008-2010

Extensive Blog documenting all aspects of the LEED project:

This project features the adaptive re-use of an existing brick home from the 1920s. Much has changed technically (electric wiring, better insulation, etc.) since the home was initially built, but due to sound construction with brick masonry, it made sense to re-use the brick structure during the extensive renovation of this house.
