building on a solid foundation


Category: architecture, interior design. Clients: aggregate architecture & design, palindrome design. August 2014. aggregate entered this project at the request of the builder at the pre-construction stage. The architectural plans contained enough information to build the home, but there were problems with flow and architectural consistency between the different spaces in the very large house. Using the original plans as a foundation but unafraid to extensively rework layout and finishes, aggregate worked carefully with the builder, homeowner, architect of record and interior designer to usher the project from concept to completion. A process note: originally scheduled as a two-day shoot (already an aggressive schedule for a five-level house with over 30 separate and distinct rooms), this assignment was reduced to six hours due to scheduling complications, knocking out our ability to carefully compose and light each scene. Sometimes, you just have to take what you can get.
