Porch swing? Check. Crisp paint colors? Check. A cocktail of classical architectural features just this side of whimsical make the porch at Seaside Avenue a winner in the “welcome” department. Thank you to Dering Hall for including us in the Journal this week.

No question that the hilltop site of Longwood Farm affords some of the most dramatic views in the state of Texas. The sidelong view of the dramatic porch and surrounding landscape were included in Dering Hall’s Journal section offering a slideshow of inspirational gardens.

An Ideal Collaboration, a book recently published by our esteemed colleague, Phillip Dodd, captures the spirit of the shared labor of design and creation in traditional architecture and highlights the importance of the talented hands of many over the genius of few.
Praised by Period Homes
for its inspirational collection of 16 essays by a diverse selection of professionals, An Ideal Collaboration
expounds the value of joint efforts. As essayist John Milner writes, “Design is the first step, but the craftsmen’s contributions are fundamental to realizing, enriching and giving personality to a final creation.”
Those personalities come alive throughout the pages of the book in essays but also in illustrations and photographs. Longwood Farm, the collaborative work of Curtis & Windham architecture
and interior design groups, represents the beauty of a comprehensive experience. In this weekend country home, informed by its Texas landscape and guided by a traditional English model of living and entertaining on a rural estate, every view is carefully choreographed. As shown time and time again in An Ideal Collaboration,
seamless, exciting transitions result from the creative work of many parts moving in unison.

Author Jamie Gillin ventured to a quiet Colorado valley for a look at the architecture, interiors, and top-notch trout fishing stream that make Table Rock Ranch a comfortable family and business retreat. We are delighted by Gillin’s insight into the place, with a good read on the motivations behind an architectural strategy of subtlety.
Gillin writes: “The designers took inspiration from trout fishing and the rituals and etiquette around it to craft an architecture that feels delicate, right, and refined, and sits gently on the land.”
