West Seattle businesses: Architect, photographer collaborate for regional Green Building Slam presentation tonight

A presentation tonight at a regional event celebrating green-built projects will feature the work of two West Seattle businesses, one of which has added a new specialty as a result. Here’s their announcement:

Local businesses LD Arch Design and Holli with an i Photography want to share news of a recent collaboration – and two related opportunities.

LD Arch Design is pleased to announce that a Green Lake net-zero remodel project will be featured in the Northwest Eco Building Guild’s 10x10x10 Green Building Slam (tonight, November 16th). The Slam is an opportunity to see exciting new green building projects – it is a fast-paced evening with ten projects, ten minutes, ten slides each. More information and tickets can be found at the NW Eco Building Guild’s website.

The slides will feature some of the beautiful photos from Holli with an i Photography, which is how the story of collaboration began. Parie Hines (of LD Arch Design) has long been a fan of Holli Margell’s work, and approached Holli to see if she would be interested in architectural photography. The resulting photos have a uniquely warm and approachable feel to them. And Holli discovered in the process that she enjoys photographing people in their homes.

So Holli with an i Photography has a new opportunity for portraits called “Home Sweet Home” which focuses on photographing people in their home or garden. Parie’s own “Citrus Manor” home is the model for the new package, which can be found on Holli’s website here.

LD Arch Design is a WSB sponsor. There’s more information about tonight’s Green Building Slam, happening at the UW, here. In addition to that event, by the way, Holli with an i Photography is participating in the Fauntleroy Fine Art and Gift Show that continues today and tomorrow.

ADDED 11:43 AM SATURDAY: Parie tells us the event was moved to a larger venue so tickets are still available – check out the links above. But if you can’t get there, she says, “The 10 projects are on display at the AIA gallery downtown, and there will be
a reception on Tuesday the 19th at 5 pm. The projects will be on display until January 6th.”

    LD Arch Design has some creative ideas. I looked at the West Seattle home remodel of a 1950’s built home and they did some really nice things with it. Style might not be to everyones taste, but it sure looks 100% better than before. I’d be interested how much that remodel cost overall. Something like that would be fantastic for so many homes that still have that old 50s-70s look inside and out. I’m impressed!

    I like the looks of that house and wouldn’t mind that being constructed next to my 1910 craftsman. I fear when my neighbor passes a developer will buy her home and put up one of those ugly 3 story tall rectangle homes with flat roof. You know the style….they are cheap looking and have no distinctive character.

Sorry, comment time is over.
