Backyard Cottage Tour

The Widner Cottage is going to be open to the public twice this summer for tours:

First, the Phinney Neighborhood Association's Home and Garden Tour will roll through on June 12th, from 11-4 pm (see link).

Second, the Cottage will be featured as the AIA Seattle's Open House on July 17th from noon to 3 pm.  More information here.  As part of the tour, the house will be published in Seattle Magazine, in the Northwest Home section in July.

CAST architecture in the news

crissy-2-final CAST architecture was featured in a couple of articles in the latest Forum magazine (published by AIA Seattle):

Sunset Substation Park was highlighted in an article, Ideas Toward a Renewable City, by Kate Cudney and Tom Mulica.

In a second article, New Edge/New Blood:  Refreshing reminders from ten young firms on keeping your competitive edge, by David Spiker, I talk about our use of blogging as a tool to highlight recent work and causes such as Backyard Cottages and reforming the Multifamily code.  Hopefully it is giving people a broader understanding, beyond the glossy portfolio, of the values that drive our designs.

CAST architecture is moving to a new home!

CAST's new home After ten (ten!) years in our current location we are moving to a new space in Fremont into Dave Boone's great building @ 115c N.36th overlooking the Ship Canal.

As you can see, it is perfectly raw and we'll be burning the midnight oil to get it into shape for the new year.

After the holidays, we'll be having a building wide celebration in concert with D.Boone Construction, and Cascade Bicycles.
