Immediate Past President’s Message

I

want to thank all of you for allowing me the privilege of serving as national president for 2 years. I have believed in this association for so many years – becoming a member in 1987 and becoming certified in 1988. I have seen AIBD grow and change in these many years and am so proud of where we are today. We all should be very proud of our Institute. We have worked tirelessly and have become the leading voice of the Residential Design industry. We offer a vast wealth of knowledge to the beginning designer as well as the seasoned professional. When I was elected in 2018, I had a long list of goals for my term. I am proud to say that most were accomplished. I believe our greatest accomplishment to date is being approved for pre-application with ANSI. NCBDC has worked tirelessly on this for years. There have been many steps involved and our incoming NCBDC President Kim Mockert, CPBD from Texas is going to continue carrying the torch to full ANSI accreditation. Thank you to Jim Wright, CPBD, FAIBD, and the College of

Fellows for succeeding in establishing my request to create a mentoring program. I have touted our accomplishments in messages past, and now look to the future. Bernie Kern, CPBD is going to be a great President and will continue the goals of the Board. He is absolutely the kindest person one could encounter and will succeed in the progression and growth of AIBD. Thank you to a fantastic Board and to the growing membership for all you have done to support our association. Also, a special thank you to our Staff. Under Steve Mickley’s (CPBD, FAIBD) direction, our staff has become a technological wonder. Keen on efficiency, professionalism, marketing and certification, we are very blessed to have them on our team. I will close with two directives I gave to our Board and College of Fellows in 2018, “Do what you say and say what you do” and “Pick one thing and do it very well”.

Karen R. Kassik-Michelsohn Karen is Vice President of Michelsohn and Daughter Construction, Inc., in Anchorage, Alaska and a Certified Professional Building Designer. She was the president of the American Institute of Building Design. Karen was awarded “Designer of the Year” in 2014 and is an AIBD Fellow.

President’s Message

AIBD is striving to be a leader in our industry

as we move forward during unprecedented times. COVID-19 has impacted the U.S. economy by putting an estimated 20 million of Americans out of work1. Although many AIBD members are reporting having consistent work, in reality no industry is immune to the global pandemic. As the incoming President of AIBD, it is my humbled privilege to serve as President and help lead this Institute to be a positive and leading influence for our industry, our members, our families, and friends, both during and after the pandemic crisis. In all public ventures, and in the office of this Institute, we are adhering to all safety practices put in place by our federal government and local governments. At the same time, we do not intend to slow down our attempts to make this organization the best in the nation for all Residential and Building Designers. When many building industry events began to shut down for 2020, AIBD began to flourish even more by creating opportunities for growth of our members.

04 - AIBD magazine

In late April, plans for our live conference in Gahanna, Ohio, which is near Columbus, had to change quickly as the COVID-19 pandemic forced multiple states to shut down as we were all being driven into an uncertain future. AIBD responded quickly under the leadership of previous President Karen Kassik-Michelsohn, Executive Director Steven Mickley, who leads the AIBD staff, and the AIBD Conference Committee. We ran a full day virtual conference, which included networking capabilities to support members who were anxious to see how their colleagues were doing. This conference included full education classes that fulfilled our original conference theme about selling and marketing your house plans. We also included trade show booth sessions that gave attendees a full agenda with day long activities. This event turned out to be our largest attendance at a conference in this season. Running this virtual conference has opened the door for us to expound on the experience, and we look forward to holding more virtual conferences along with live in person events.


Recently we received news that the effort of NCBDC Presidents John Fought and Alan Abrams has helped our Institute receive approval of our preapplication with the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB). In addition our NCBDC Certification Board has continued to help designers become certified. Every week in our AIBD Monday Minute announcements, a positive growth to our list of new certified members is acknowledged. I am one of the recent members to have passed the exam. This feat was accomplished because of mentoring and positive reinforcement by our Institute. All of this progress continues as we steer ourselves through a global pandemic.

student development, and transparency of AIBD’s best practices.

AIBD’s mission statement is “Building a better residential design profession, one designer at a time”. Our goals will be to take further action that supports diversity and inclusion, and provide additional opportunities for all designers. To inspire, lead, and mentor all new members and students to create and become residential and building designers, we also intend to make each Board of Director member accountable in service to all AIBD members helping members to become better designers. Why? Because we at AIBD “Create Where People Live, engaging everyone to make it As we make the change to our AIBD Board of happen”. Directors, we thank President Karen KassikMichelsohn for her devoted, cognizant, and respected leadership. As I move forward in the role of President, and learn from our past leaders about how they implemented their successful achievements, I intend to add governance that institutes diversity,

On the interior their goal was to have a warm and inviting home that preserved the striking structural components and highlighted the impressive scale of the barn’s interior.

The barn is located on a 30 acre lot that, like most of the neighborhood, is still The completion of the Barn took six months farmed for alfalfa. When the owners bought longer than originally planned because of

Berkshire Residence GRAND ARDA WINNER - Custom Homes (Built) DESIGNED BY Mathison | Mathison Architects PHOTOS BY Chuck Choi

High

above the Housatonic River in western Massachusetts, just two miles from the New York border, a winding road ascends the ridge of a mountain and leads to a quiet gravel turn-off at the Berkshire Residence. This new residence is carefully sited on the mountainside among rock outcroppings and mature oaks to both fold into the natural, sloped landscape and capture the dramatic east-facing views of the valley and ridge beyond. It shares its site with an existing small cabin by the same designer, completed several years earlier.

while capturing dramatic eastern views through a ribbon of full height doors and windows. They also unite three programmatic living areas that become increasingly private and rotate gently in plan to frame powerful views and a series of outdoor living spaces, including an elevated firepit area and a lower pool positioned at the edge of the drop-off. A series of board-formed concrete retaining walls and planted slopes negotiate the outdoor spaces, which are overlaid with paths and seating areas using reclaimed granite curbs from Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

This 5,500 SF two-level home has a low and subtle appearance at the entry, deploying an earthy palette with black stained cedar siding, mahogany windows and a natural zinc colored metal roof. Strong horizontal roof forms mimic the slopes of the surrounding topography and act as a layered filter for late-day western light

Sustainable design principles are integrated throughout the project, including sophisticated geothermal heating and cooling, a building envelope to eliminate thermal bridging, triple-pane windows and doors, use of natural materials and finishes, renewable surface materials, and use of native ecologies in the landscape.

Charter Oak Estate

GRAND ARDA WINNER - Custom Homes (Built)

DESIGNED BY Robert Klob Designs PHOTOS BY Trent Adams

This

home was developed on a lot that had a previous residence. This residence also had a guest house. The primary home was completely demolished and removed, but we decided to remodel the guest house and work around it.

The home was intentionally designed to have a minimalist view from the curb - this creates interest as you enter the courtyard, to the large entry tower and as you enter the home, the gathering spaces expand beyond. This creates a sense of “what’s next”.

The final design of this home was a collaboration from owners’ sketches ideas and our design team thru many design refinements. They entertain quite often and wanted a large area for multiple gathering zones - and also the ability to completely open up to the patios to create an extension of those rooms. The landscape and pool were designed to emulate a resort feeling and a place that is serene and relaxing.

The overall space and use of the property create privacy but also accentuate the owners’ active outdoor lifestyle. Guests can stay for long periods of time and still maintain their owner’s privacy from the main home.

The main challenge of the project was to capture the side lake view while being constrained by a shallow lot. By creating an L-shaped plan, this constraint was turned into an advantage.

and Covered Balcony were turned to capture the best views of the lake, while the Great Room, Foyer, and Master enjoy the courtyard created by the “L” and a view of the channel that leads to the lake on the right. Additional details were utilized to take further advantage, such as a hanging bed at the porch upstairs, a stepped rear wall, and walls of glass on the lower level, gaining a view from nearly every space. Glass walls and large telescoping glass doors blur the line between in and out inviting you to enjoy lake life no matter where you are in the house.

Milford Street House GRAND ARDA WINNER - Custom Homes (Built) DESIGNED BY George Allen Cole PHOTOS BY TK Images, Bayou City 360

The

Milford House is a 6,350 square foot custom residence, designed specifically to anchor within a unique boundary. The existing property’s wedge shape potentially posed a disadvantage due to its pinched front width as compared to the neighboring lots. The solution was to create a façade that expressed the wedge, rather than trying to hide it. The two massings were interlocked as they reached the front setback, then eroded to define the different angles. Contrasting materials and fenestration further helped to emphasize the connection, while deep overhangs provided ample shading. The concept for the first floor layout became a separation of public and private spaces. By having these two wings isolate and follow the different angled boundary lines, the living room was allowed to open up and grow in between. This created a family meeting ‘pivot’ point at both the interior (living room) and exterior (outdoor covered living/dining/pool area).

36 - AIBD magazine

As you enter the home along the North mass, the exterior brick runs from the entry porch, through the main living space, and out the rear of the house accentuating the indoor outdoor feel. As you circulate through the floor plan, careful attention was paid to a person’s line of sight and the boundaries of exterior and interior materials blurred. Once inside the main space, the majority of the windows face the rear yard to create a sense of privacy from the neighborhood street. For ease of accessibility, the master suite was kept on the first floor, but distinctly secluded from the main areas of the house. At the master bath, an open oversized shower connects the two separate master baths and closets. All secondary rooms were placed upstairs for privacy, with a game room and balcony set to again serve as a meeting connection between the different areas.

Mountain Modern on Orc GRAND ARDA WINNER - Custom Homes (Built) DESIGNED BY David Charlez Designs PHOTOS BY Landmark Photography

Inspired by homes found in the mountains, this design

brings the outdoors in with exterior elements of wood and glass. Located on a beautiful lake lot, the homeowners wanted to admire the lake from every room in the house. The lakeside of the home offers panoramic views of this beautiful lake, not to mention the stunning presence of the home from the lake. One of the goals was to have views of the lake upon entering the home. The dramatic double door front entrance accomplishes just that. In order to bring the outside in, the authentic barnwood element crosses over from the exterior gable roof pitches through to the steep vaulted ceilings in the great room and screen porch. The desire to have an open main level plan, but still have subtle definition on was accomplished with metal beams in the great

room, a floating buffet between the great room and dining, and change in floor materials between the kitchen under the dining space. The exterior design is a timeless design with a mix of traditional and modern features. The steep gable roof pitches and high vaulted ceilings give an illusion of two-story living. The metal roof accents give the design a modern touch. The chunky stone makes this home feel rustic and nicely compliments the barnwood tongue and groove in the gable roof peaks. The use of tall ceilings add drama to this home. Thoughtful organization of space makes this design perfect for entertaining and one level living if desired. The homeowners will be able to live well on the lake for years to come.

home is situated on a steep pie shaped lot with a long shoreline overlooking a pristine lake in the Blue Ridge mountains. The family sought to create a comfortable retreat that was seamlessly integrated into the natural environment and took advantage of the spectacular views. The interior of the home is centered about two open living spaces on the main and lower levels that create a strong indoor and outdoor connection. They serve as anchor points that tie the home together and help distinguish elements of the home that balance the privacy of the owners, their desire to entertain, and

their ability to host guests. The use of natural materials throughout the interiors help to effortlessly establish a casual, comfortable, and sophisticated home. We blended local vernacular architecture with hints of European forms to create a casual yet refined home. This juxtaposition is seen in the home’s massing which is nestled into the topography, its use of local materials, steeply pitched slate roof, trusses, post and beam construction, steel windows and doors, and lack of any gypsum board. This blend of vernacular styles and natural materials create a home that is timeless and respects the character of its place.

“This house is very impressive from the front, one that I want to walk into and look at.” - Judges’ comment

Greenview 74 GRAND ARDA WINNER - Custom Homes (Unbuilt) DESIGNED BY Lev Designs RENDERINGS BY Max Povar

This 5,100 sq. ft. transitional farmhouse house was designed

for a young family of 4 people. The basic idea was to create a central entertainment/living area in the center of the house, which would be open and connect to the other wings of the home. Connecting the indoor and outdoor was crucial here. We wanted the “central hub� to open up to both the courtyard and front yard to create a fluidity between the courtyard and the back yard. With the big windows/doors in the front, privacy became

50 - AIBD magazine

an issue so the courtyard walls and gates were created to provide a sense of privacy. The house is currently under construction. One of the most eyecatching architectural features that everyone raves about is the master bathroom skylight. The skylight allows for the room to be lit up by natural light. After a long day worth of work, its a perfect place to fill the tub with warm water, turn the candles on, lay your head back and gaze at the stars above you.

Wood This ultramodern sprawling home spans 135’ on a secluded

wooded lot and redefines the word “custom” with its tailor-made features and amenities. Decorative steel I-beams at the front entry and the garage enhance the industrial yet clean style of this home. At an impressive 6,800 square feet, and situated on a 4.5-acre lot, the ranch home with walk-out has plenty of space to meet the homeowner’s individual and collective needs. One of the most striking features of this custom home is the purposeful symmetry of the architecture. Two nearly identical wings flank the main open kitchen/living/dining pod. An oversized screened in porch featuring a fireplace and outdoor kitchen flanks the rear of the home. In-floor radiant heating on the entirety of both levels of the ranch is another striking feature of this custom home. On one side, the mother-in-law suite consists of a generous bedroom featuring a cozy fireplace, walk-in closet and bath. The opposite wing serves as a super customized master suite, also

featuring a fireplace in the bedroom. The large walk-in closet includes a handy stacked washer and dryer to save a trip across the residence to the main laundry room if desired. And in a unique marriage-strengthening twist, dual side-by-side master bathrooms provide separate space and privacy for the couple. The cherry on top of the master suite is the outdoor hot tub, accessible directly off the master bedroom. Both bedroom wings open to a spectacular in-ground waterfall infinity edge pool. One must not forget about another vital part of the family: the pair of much-loved pooches. For their comfort and security, and the cleanliness of the home’s interior, the exterior design includes a heated dog run for four-season use. The lower level holds the exercise room/gym and metal workshop for the hobbyist in the family. Both rooms walk out to the private wooded backyard. From practical to leisure living, this custom home has it all.

Ada Sprawling Farmhouse GRAND ARDA WINNER - Indoor Living DESIGNED BY 42 North - Architecture + Design PHOTOS BY Norman Sizemore Photography

Balancing proportion and scale is an important principle

of architecture; this home presented a challenge of impressive magnitude with its 150-foot end-to-end span. Since our mind seeks mathematical proportions in the physical world, interior elements of a previously unused scale were utilized to make the interior living space of this vast home feel warm and comfortable. The homeowners travel extensively and sought old-world charm reflected in a football field-size space. Once inside the formal foyer, 17-foot walls lead the eye up to a soaring cathedral ceiling. Myriad details make this scale pleasingly proportional: decorative trusses, a 2-foot crown molding bulkhead, and oversized windows that flood the room with natural light.

58 - AIBD magazine

Oversized space required exaggerated detailing and this is the first home the architect has used 100-inch prefabricated fireplace; the largest on the market, yet its effect is stately and traditional. Underfoot, radiant floor heating was used throughout the entire structure and required over a mile a piping. Beamed, coffered ceilings and a masonry wood-burning fireplace add traditional details to more informal downstairs spaces. Although still oversized by most standards, architectural details are thoughtfully used to balance proportion and scale.

The

design of this two-story “Transitional-style” home presented many challenges due to stringent zoning and site limitations, along with lofty client wants wishes, and desires. Because the property is in a Velocity-zone, a much more complicated super-structure had to be designed, engineered, and ultimately incorporated into this program, which made it even more challenging. Despite the many difficulties faced during the design, bidding, and building processes, this oneof-a-kind waterfront residence accomplished all of the client’s design and budgetary objectives. In addition, the finished product far exceeded their quality and lifestyle expectations.

Silver Lake Residence GRAND ARDA WINNER - Indoor Living DESIGNED BY Mathison | Mathison Architects PHOTOS BY Jason Keen Photography

This active family aspired to a main level living space that felt

connected to the lake, the design of which began in January of 2016 and by fall of 2017 construction was complete. Located on a beautiful wooded lot that slopes down to broad sunset views over the lake, this home takes full advantage of its elevated position by pushing and pulling the lakeside elevation to maximize the outdoor living experience on both levels.

The street level spaces are reserved for primary family spaces, including main entry, bedrooms, baths, kitchen, dining, and living rooms with deck extensions that lead to waterfront views of active exterior spaces below. The waterfront level includes guest quarters, exercise space, family room, storage for waterfront recreation, and broad deck areas for spa, fire-pit and gathering space.

From the street, the home appears quiet and subtle. The longlow lines of the roof edges suggest a modest modernism in scale with its neighbors. Once inside, the design opens to the lake with high ceilings, full-height glass walls, and natural clerestory light from above. The strong, continuous roof overhang on the lakeside visually extends the spaces of the primary living areas, suggesting an ambiguous separation of indoor and outdoor spaces.

The multi-layered sequence of spaces is explored through a carefully curated material palette - cut limestone, brick, polished concrete, western red cedar, walnut, glass and blackened steel. An interior cedar trellis forms an intimate space in the walnut kitchen, while wholly connected to the lake views. A broad exterior stair provides an easy path to the lakefront and activities on the water.

The Barn at Walnut Hill GRAND ARDA WINNER - Indoor Living

DESIGNED BY Poole & Poole Architecture PHOTOS BY Eastman Creative and Gordon Gregory Photography

The current owners of the Barn at Walnut Hill are two architects who had decided to build their “forever home”, finally creating and building a design for themselves, rather than a client. While not technically historic having been built in 1978, it is nonetheless an important part of the local county’s history.

The barn is located on a 30 acre lot that, like most of the neighborhood, is still farmed for alfalfa. When the owners bought the property their fundamental design goal was to respect the original design and to make any exterior changes blend harmoniously with the Dutch Gambrel style and the adjacent farmland. On the interior their goal was to have a warm and inviting home that preserved

66 - AIBD magazine

the striking structural components and highlighted the impressive scale of the barn’s interior. The completion of the Barn took six months longer than originally planned because of the unique nature of the project and the amount of custom features on the interior. During the initial design it was decided that all the existing massive steel beams and beautiful wood posts and beams would be not only preserved but highlighted rather than hidden. Existing material which had to be removed such as the beautiful cedar siding, too brittle to stay an exterior finish, was re-used throughout the home.

The “warm-modern” home embraces the mid-century modern architectural inspirations of Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rudolph, Rudolf Schindler and Richard Neutra. It includes an open floor plan, pocketing glass walls and extensive indoor/outdoor living spaces. The home’s earthy color palette and open feel lend to the home’s name, “Nyumbani”, which means “home” in Swahili, inspired by the movie The Lion King. The home was designed to accommodate a large family and guests during family vacations. We created a resort-like atmosphere with the home’s indoor/outdoor connections and expansive outdoor living areas.

Retractable screens are built into the lanai. The large vanishing edge pool includes a beach shelf, spa and LED lighting. An exercise room with sauna and steam room sits slightly above the pool and opens to the pool area via pocketing glass corner walls. This resort-like vacation home was designed for a family who enjoys luxury outdoor living at their private “home away from home”.

Ada Modern Classic GRAND ARDA WINNER - Renovation (Built) DESIGNED BY 42 North - Architecture + Design PHOTOS BY John Stoffer Photography

To

renovate or to custom build? That was the question facing a young family relocating to the United States from New Zealand. When all was said and done, although the project’s 5,900 square foot footprint never changed, they might as well have built new due to the stunning result with a $1 million price tag. Worth. Every. Penny. The Ada Modern Classic transformation from a dated and choppy 1999 home to a fresh, open, modern concept home with a Scandinavian influence is nothing short of jaw dropping. A few original elements were preserved: the windows, living room ceiling rafters, internal transom window, and dining room wainscoting. Other than that, everything in the home is brand new.

88 - AIBD magazine

Rooms played musical chairs: the sunroom became an open breakfast nook; the old kitchen transformed into a family room; an office turned into a nursery attached to the master bedroom. Enhancements not in the original floorplan include the additions of a scullery; enlarged mudroom; and a wet room with soaker tub and shower. The second-floor bedrooms once shared a Jack and Jill bathroom, but now the children have separate bathrooms. Out with the old: bulkheads, columns, built ins. In with the new: open shelving in unique void spaces, a coffee bar, and main floor open concept. The side by side before and after photos dramatically prove that sometimes, “reduce, reuse, and recycle” applies even to the McMansions of yester year.

Located

on the banks of the St.Johns River, this 1980’s humble ranch style home underwent a remarkable transformation. The existing structure was a 2-story frame on slab on grade. It had boxy, unremarkable interior with 9’0” ceilings and not many windows which blocked the river views. The home was in serious need of an update. My Client fell in love with the views of the river. Indeed, the location of the building and the views of the river were simply perfect. In order to preserve the location of the building close to the river

bank we decided to remodel. This would be his dream home that would stay in the family for generations to come. We decided that an Antebellum style Florida Estate would be a perfect style match to the river views and the ancient trees with hanging moss. Due to current setback restrictions, the decision to preserve the footprint was the only means to take advantage of the best waterfront views from almost all the bedrooms, kitchen & family room. My efforts resulted in an exquisitely elegant Florida home.

Framing the View

GRAND ARDA WINNER - Renovation (Built)

DESIGNED BY Habitations, LLC PHOTOS BY Barbara Brown Photography

The design commission on this project came from the builder. This was a new client to them and our first experience with this builder. We are flattered that the builder chose us for this wonderful opportunity. The property owner acquired this delightful example of a mid-century modern that resides on a private six-acre lake that is remarkably remote although it is nested in the middle of a significant suburban township. The entire structure is cedar in virtually every element from beams to siding. The primary structure was a challenge as it is multi-faceted with skewed exterior walls on 45 degree angles. To make the situation more interesting, the roof system is trussed to create the roof shape while reducing interior

load bearing partitions. The main living area was in the rear-center of the home overlooking the lake through a very dated solarium structure frequently used in commercial structures of the era. The afternoon heat gain was overwhelming on a good day. The Living Room and Solarium were separated by a masonry fireplace facing the Living Room and blank on the lake side. It is mimiced on the floor below in the guest suite Living area. We called this the terrace level. Furthermore the kitchen is 5-sided with 3 entry/egress points and as many traffic paths with a quaint seating area and a masonry fireplace. The Living Room and Kitchen are separated by the Foyer and primary entrance.

American Residential Design Awards (ARDA) The project is a small studio loft renovation in NYC. The apartment hasn’t been renovated in 30 years. A large amount of storage and shelving spaces is a major design requirement emphasized by the client. Also, the client’s system will occasionally stay with her, therefore, it is important to provide two sleeping quarters in the loft.

An open living / dining room flooded with natural lighting is the focal point of the space. Coupling with a light color scheme, the goal is to create a space that feels larger than it really is. The designer also took advantage of the space’s high ceiling and used lighting that complimented that perception. The design also efficiently uses the left over spaces as storages. For example, the unusable space below the stair to the upper loft is designed to be a book shelves since the client is a bookworm. Although the space is generally light in color, the goal is to utilizes the client’s personal belongings to lighten up the space. For example, a magazine shelf and a large book shelf are incorporated into the living room as an accent feature that makes the room colorful.

GRAND ARDA WINNER - Working Drawings

DESIGNED BY David Charlez Designs DRAWINGS BY David Charlez Designs

This cottage traditional style design’s main goal was to have

curbside charm and have lake views from as many rooms as possible. The backside of the design is essentially all glass. The flow of the design was important as well to have a large kitchen and prep pantry combined with a pocket office since typically so much time is spent in the kitchen areas.

This design easily entertains guests with a main level bar connected to an oversized sunroom, both in close proximity to the great room. No interior detail was left untouched with several ceiling features including forever wood beams, boxed ceiling upsets with coffered details and a grand two-story great room. Thoughtfulness was placed in the details of the cabinetry, built-ins, and grand sized fireplaces to invoke the traditional cottage design aesthetic.
