Having just finished a very interesting project in North Carolina, I received this note from Bob Wilkoff, the architect with whom we had worked. Bob is an exceptionally talented artist who generally restricts his work to the greater Washington DC area. We’ve completed numerous conservatory projects with him over the years – including one on his own house. He also designed the façade of the Tanglewood building in Denton which you can see a small portion of in the group photo on the Tanglewood Story page of our website.
Dear Family & Friends,
Just a heads up that I’ve been chosen to participate in this month’s, (March), Washingtonian Magazine article on Washington’s top architects. Take a look at the article beginning on page 125.
The customer for the conservatory project in North Carolina originally contacted Tanglewood about their project and asked us for a reference for an architect. They were planning a substantial renovation to the entire house that included as one element a large conservatory.
Though as architects ourselves, we sometimes take on additional design responsibilities as smaller adjuncts to a larger custom conservatory. But in this case the scope of the overall project required an additional professional.
Bob seemed to be the natural choice. The opportunity to use a conservatory manufacturer and architect who are already familiar with each others work, process and limitations is always a REALLY big plus on a job.
This case was no exception. Together with the clients, we worked seamlessly, providing input for the entire project. As a result, the overall quality of the design – and construction as well, became far and away better than anything that could have been done by either on our own.
I’ll soon be able to post some pictures of this job so that you can see the integration of the conservatory portion of the project with Bob’s scheme of the overall renovation.
We are very happy to be associated with such high level professionals! Nice work Bob. You can see some of his work at his website www.archaeon.com.
