Frozen Music

Posted on Nov 26, 2014

“I call architecture frozen music.” – Goethe Continuing this thought by the famous polymath and author of Faust, I have long viewed the best of architects as the composers and conductors of built symphonies. Using rhythms of structural framing, melodies of material textures, and chords of light, these architects really do create works rivaling the […]

Compatible addition to existing house“My 84-year old mother has lived in the addition you designed for us for 4 1/2 years now, and she loves it. She is proud to show visitors around her area (especially the porch which is now filled with flowers). Thanks to your design, we did not have to sacrifice windows or light to add on to the existing structure. The layout for her living quarters, including the accessible bath, could not be better. We are very happy with the design, and we appreciate the time you took sharing ideas and suggestions with us. Working with you was a pleasure.”

LittlePeople-300pixel“My wife Mary and I first met Dean Camlin some 20 years ago when we were searching for an architect that could make Mary’s lifelong dream a reality by creating the perfect environment for preschool children to thrive and flourish. He listened carefully to her concepts and then applied his considerable skills to create Little Peoples Place into a facility that has proven to meet all of her expectations. Literally, thousands of children have been introduced to the concept of learning while having fun in the building Dean designed. “We have done a number of smaller projects since then and have always found Dean very easy to communicate with. He explains architectural issues in ways that can be understood by those not in the field. His integrity is beyond reproach and his many years of experience are invaluable when you need to get a problem solved or a job done. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of an architect.”

“We are certainly enjoying our ‘new’ office space. It’s hard to believe we have been moved in since October, 2012. . . . Thanks again for all of your very hard work to get us into our space and looking forward to discussing options as we continue to grow.”
