WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
During the 52nd. Annual AIA Seattle Honor Awards Program, architect Shigeru Ban of Tokyo and architect Brigette Shin of Toronto said of the Leschi Residence, with Eric Cobb, “Through an elegant landscape design by Bruce Hinckley, Alchemie, the street elevation of this surprising house generously presents itself to passerby while still retaining the privacy of life inside,” and of the Fauntleroy residence with architects Suyama, Peterson, Deguchi, “ The Fauntleroy Residence stands out as an instance of masterful design, an achievement of international stature… (it) engages it’s context and site at every level… a deeply, personal, world-class achievement.”
In 2005, an AIA Jury for Washington Architecture, gave the Schuchart Residence its only honor award. Of this project, with George Suyama of Suyama Peterson Deguchi, the jury said” we found everything to admire in this design, most specifically the integration of the interior and exterior spaces, the placement of house in the landscape, and the selection and detailing of materials. Each interior space relates directly to a dedicated private exterior space, while the house and gardens benefit from and add to the wider landscape beyond the site”.
