Don’t forget Aspire Magazine who joined us(and who wrote several fine articles about Crisp Architects including: Low Ceiling Remedies and Jimmy and Jill Went Up […]

Pools, Pools, Pools, (7 of Them)

As the summer winds down, most of us will bid farewell to our pools(better yet to our neighbors’ pools).  Ironically, now is when pools and pool houses are often on the drawing board in preparation for next summer’s fun.

To be fair, our landscaper friends do the lion’s share of planning the pool environment.  We are most often interested in the location of the pool as it relates to the main house, pool house and the surrounding patio.  As always, a […]

Fine Home Source 2013-Best One Ever!

We had a beautiful day, 54 vendors(a record) and over 600 visitors-what more can you ask for?

Well, we had a late entry of Telescopes of Vermont who showed everyone the amazing Porter Garden Telescope.  People were reading the fine print on a dollar bill almost a block away.  It brought back my amature astronomer’s glee.

There were vendors like Chris’ Coffee showing their amazing Italian espresso makers and handing out free samples to Hudson Company displaying their antique and vintage […]

Fine Home Source 2013, Sept. 28th

I will be the first to admit, everyone doesn’t need a bowling alley.  But if you would like to see the latest in home bowling, come on out to Fine Home Source on September 28th and take a look.  This year we have some of the most broad ranging and professional vendors ever.  You can speak to the experts from Orvis Sandanona about learning how to fly fish or shoot sporting clays then talk to the folks at Dutchess Overhead Door […]

The Garden and The Home (Updated)

The arrival of spring inspired me to revisit this blog from 2009, add some photos, and use the found time to plant my garden.  Please enjoy the weather and this visual reminder of spring!

A beautiful landscape can enhance any architectural project. A talented landscape architect, landscape designer or homeowner with a green thumb makes any project we design more beautiful. That partnership works even better when it begins early in the design process.

The Garden and The Home

A beautiful landscape can enhance any architectural project. A talented landscape architect, landscape designer or homeowner with a green thumb makes any project we design more beautiful. That partnership works even better when it begins early in the design process.

Architects spend a lot of time on the placement of a new home or addition in the landscape. Views, sun angle and orientation, prevailing winds, relationships to the approach and internal flow are all part of the mix when designing […]

Garden Structures

Nothing reminds us that spring is coming more than digging out the potting soil, the rusted tools, and clay pots. For me it involves cleaning the refuse out of my vegetable garden from the previous year, opening up the deer fencing, and bringing on the roto-tiller. Like many things in life, the process is often more important than the final product. In the end, after planting watering and tending, dozens of vegetable plants and seeds over the course of […]
