Ten Reasons to Hire an Architect

1. An Architect can help you create and focus your dream house into a built reality. Architects see the big picture. A skilled architect can help you develop and integrate your list of requirements with the other complex factors to create a unique Arizona home just for you by prioritizing your needs.

2. An Architect is a licensed professional. Architects are educated, trained, and tested in a large range of areas, including aesthetic design, ergonomics, sociology, ecology, law, building codes, construction materials and technology. This breadth of knowledge allows foresight when evaluating competing requirements and restrictions.

3. An Architect will solve your problems with creative, elegant solutions. Architects are trained to make buildings both functional and beautiful. An architect will be able to show you alternatives that you might not have considered possible.

4. An Architect is trained in communication. An architect has experience effectively communicating through written word, drawing, and verbally with the key members of the project including clients, contractors, engineers, and authorities in the manner best suited to the situation.

5. An Architect has experience. Most architects consider architecture a passion more than a vocation. They draw on past experience. They are an integral part of the design/construction community with contacts in all the fields.

6. An Architect can make your life easier! Architects can bring pictorial suggestions to the table and assist in decisions for space planning, materials, and finishes transforming your abstract ideas into a form you can visualize.

7. An Architect is cost effective. A well-conceived, designed, and coordinated project is more economical. Changes made on paper in the design phase are much less expensive than those made during construction.

8. Architecture is a good investment. Great design sells from consumer products to cities. A well designed home has a higher resale value.

9. An Architect can make your building project environmentally friendly. Skilled architects work with the environment to create spaces that are sustainable and comply with ever demanding energy performance requirements.

10. An Architect can guide you through an entire project as your advocate. An architect will be able to assist with every aspect of a project from choosing a site, city permitting, design review board submittals to construction administration. Whether you choose to start a project from the ground up or remodel an existing space, an architect will be able to help the project run smoothly during each stage avoiding disruptive surprises.

BEACH SIDE ORGANIC On the shores of Lake Michigan, this pool house was born out of a necessity for privacy and the ability to peacefully gather with family and friends. A significant number of trees had recently been removed, leaving the site edge bare, with no privacy for the in-ground pool. Having worked with the owner in the past to design his main home on this same property in 1989, we were commissioned to create a pool house that would tie seamlessly into the aesthetic of their existing structure and act as a fence on the property line. Echoing the design of the house using wood tones and adobe accents, the pool house itself is narrow, but fully functional. The simplicity of this building was born from our desire to build environmentally conscious while meeting client requirements and the existing architectural aesthetics. Easy accessibility following ADA compliance guidelines, the space is a welcome retreat for all guests. Dipping into the pool under an open sky is only enhanced by the indigenous vegetation and sculpted landscaping. A hidden garage was added into one end of the pool house to allow the site owners storage for their recreational accoutrements without sacrificing aesthetic.

RE-IMAGINED ENVELOPE

Allegretti

Tucked away next to our client’s home in Forest Beach, Michigan, our firm was commissioned to create a new space that would act as both a pool and a guest house. Their program included a garden, an in-ground pool, an in-ground trampoline, and a pickleball court to encourage occupants to connect through activity. Additionally, various gathering spaces, such as the outdoor fireplace or the transitional deck encourage a more leisurely social connection. The living room and kitchen meld together to create a space that is open and inviting. The goal was to foster the cohesive integration of nature within the home itself; from the indigenous landscaping to the capturing of sunlight through skylights and wide windows as well as the southern facing of the master bedroom. The exterior of the building has raised 2x4 battens on the outer façade to imitate tree branches, a style mimicked by the large overhang by the pool. All materials for this build were sustainably sourced or produced within 500 miles of the site. It was built to maintain its structure against the storms off Lake Michigan and to harvest rainfall to water the garden and replenish the local watershed.

MID-CENTURY MODERN In 2019, we were approached by a couple with two young children interested in creating a home. But, beyond a “simple shelter”, they wanted a residence that encouraged a lifestyle that was an integration into nature and recognized its life sustaining attributes. This would be a uniquely challenging project. The site had a steep dune that limited what we were allowed to build on. We were confined to a 2,550 square foot home on a 20,145 square foot lot. Our solution was to make the buildable space as compact as possible while meeting the client’s needs. On a slope behind a sand dune, the home emerges out of its hillside forest as if it were supported by the surrounding trees. Sustainability in mind, the triangular footprint occupies the buildable area on the lee side of the dune. This placement reduced the west wind by more than half, helped regulate interior temperatures, and reduced weathering. All invasive plant species were replaced with those indigenous. The entry stair and the foyer is in the southeast corner to capture the eastern sunlight. Glass and stucco envelop the facades, imitating the surrounding trees and sky. Tapering balconies create “nature walks” along three sides.

Principal, Mark Johnson

Mark Johnson and Associates was founded in 1997 in southeast Michigan by principal Mark Johnson. MJA offers a multi-disciplined team of professionals who work collaboratively, matching expertise to client/project needs. Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Furnishings are available as individual or turn-key services. Considered one of the most thoughtful talents working in Michigan, Mark Johnson believes that residential architecture and design must serve the client’s individual needs and function as beautifully as it looks. For a project to be successful, his focus is not only on the importance of getting the architecture right, but that good decoration is of equal importance, and should always be a portrait of the person who lives there. The composed placement of a window and the position of a favorite reading chair facing a remarkable site vista are of equal importance to create that perfect integration of function and personal style. MJA specializes in residential design in no particular style. Design focus is to bring to modernism a touch of warmth and personality, and to traditionalism young energy and a touch of the exotic. Details, both bold and subtle, are layered to allows the character of a home to reveal itself over time. Great homes improve with use and age and develop thru memories and permanence into inheritable heirlooms.

HIDDEN CREEK The Hidden Creek project embraces discovery, starting with a winding driveway that guides visitors through a dense woodland, true to the character of its Midwest topography. As the home comes into view, it is slowly unveiled, with the entry as the focal point. The building is a careful negotiation of sloping planes, transparency, and solid forms. It is punctuated by a central hearth, with expansive views overlooking a bending creek. Nestled into its larger wooded context, the home yields to its surrounding landscape. Inside, the spaces unfold along a natural ridge of the site, providing a perched condition that stretches horizontally over its northeast views of the woods and creek below. Prioritizing beauty over square footage, all rooms have a collaborative function, and speak to simplicity. It was important to the family to create a living space that feels like a nest, whether for shared gatherings or private activities. The homeowners wanted an elegant, yet informal home where they could decompress, but also interact and entertain when desired.

MIRA7| 57



DETAIL DESIGN APPROACH MATHISON | MATHISON ARCHITECTS (MMA) focuses on a collaborative, concentrated approach to architecture. We believe that the integrated vision of a project should be considered throughout the design process with all disciplines, so that at completion, no detail feels divergent from the whole. Each aspect of a space should enhance the depth of the architecture, reinforcing central themes in progressively captivating layers of design. We emphasize functionality, spatial relationships, and precision, while being thoughtful about the impact to the environment and user. We create details that knit spaces together, that are purposeful, provocative, and express beauty in their craft. As Architects and Designers, our goal is to help clients unlock and express a vision of their environment that aligns with their values. Learn more at mathisonarchitects.com

Our Philosophy At Joseph Mosey Architecture, Inc. we believe that all created Architecture deserves to be timeless and beautiful. A project is developed from the idea that all projects deserve our best efforts employing our experience, talent, passion and skill, and that the creation of beautiful architecture is our obligation to the client.

A

combined effort through which we strive to achieve a result as unique and personal as each individual client. If we achieve this, we feel we have succeeded. About us We are a small boutique style firm which is one of our greatest assets. The Firm Principal is the client design and construction contact through the entire process.

He graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1991 with a Professional Bachelor Degree in Architecture.

JMA employs the talents of architects, project managers and draftsman to complete the project team, each with unique skills and experience tailored to the needs of each client.


Joseph Mosey

"When done beautifully, Architecture will have the same power over the mind as music or poetry or any works of Art, creating meaningful human experiences"

Joseph Mosey

Good Architecture is our obligation to each and every client and if done properly to our standards will tell the story of its client, its owner, its family.
