In this episode of Midwest Architecture & Design, I talk with Renae Keller who is an interior designer based in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. Trusted by home builders, architects, and homeowners alike to create an overall design vision while keeping the details intertwined and her customer’s style in clear focus. Always thinking several steps ahead, so her client does not have to, Renae’s friendly, calming presence and over twenty years of experience moves even the most elegant projects forward in an approachable way.
Today I talk with Tim Eian about TE Studio’s primary focus: Passive House (Passivhaus) design–the world’s leading voluntary building energy standard focusing on superior energy efficiency and quality of life at low operating cost.
I recently sat down with Quinn Hutson and Brooke Jacobson to discuss the history of CNH Architects, as well as the many differences in the commercial architecture world vs. residential.
For me, one of the most challenging things is naming things, and when a name fits like a glove it is incredibly satisfying. So you can imaging that one of the things that I was eager to talk about with Mark Stankey and Matt Byers was the name “PLAAD”, which is an acronym for the Practice of Lasting Art, Architecture and Design… I mean, come on. So good.
