Homecology 101 with Moneca Kaiser: Homecology Podcast – Episode 2

Homecology is a synthesis of some things that are very important to us but we don't really talk about a lot. It connotes something about community and environment, and it's evocative of something meaningful to us. We all long for home. We talk about homecoming journeys. We write poems about home, and we all know what homesickness is, and I wanted to try to study that, to what is it that makes up a home, and I wanted to begin a conversation about what those elements are, so Homecology is about our interdependence, and our community, I guess. What I'm trying to do is elevate the build environment to be in harmony with the culture and ecosystem we're dependent on, to have more of a symbiotic relationship with everything.

A Letter to the Client: The Concept Phase

Good morning Maria and Tom, It was good to meet with you and get started. I'm sending along 2 concepts for us to reflect on. Please don't be concerned about door ways or details yet - they will all be resolved. I have just massed things out with furniture place holders to ensure it's all working to get a feel for what we can accommodate. Your house seems to easily allow us to close off rooms so just assume that we can work something out for each opening.
