UPDATE: CONNECTICUT WATERFRONT RENO

12/09/2013

Construction has wrapped on CWB’s renovation to an existing Connecticut home. The new addition and garage relate seamlessly to the existing structure, framing new waterfront views. The new brick work and timber-framed porches enhance the materiality of the house while describing its volumetric relationships as they extend from the rear facade to the front entry.

CWB: A CAT HOUSE

CWB: A CAT HOUSE

11/08/2013

CWB recently received a unique client request: design a cat house for a feral cat colony by the Williamsburg waterfront.  The client was in the midst of renovating a house that they would soon be moving to.  The move would require leaving behind the cat colony they had been caring for and they wanted to ensure that the cats would still be able to receive food, clean water, and shelter in their absence.  CWB took on the challenge as a fun inner-office design competition.  Check out the entries below: The winning entry, by Jesse Fearins, was modified slightly and brought to life by Pilaster Inc.  The client’s residence, also constructed by Pilaster, will be ready for move in before Christmas this year.
