The @usnatarchives was designed by architect John Russell Pope whose classical know how shaped several cultural buildings in the city. Completed in 1935, this monumental building was built on the site of Center Market and broke the design rhythm of Federal Triangle where it resides. The architectural details are mesmerizing... it’s quite the treasure. . . #architecture #archilovers #classicalarchitecture #neoclassical #washingtondc #visitwashingtondc #nationscapital #nationalarchives #igdc #mydccool #acreativedc #johnrussellpope #historicbuildings

With some projects, instead of locating a cluster of interior spaces that look out onto a site, I’ll start with an exterior “room” at the heart of a site and use the architecture to help shape that garden room. This project started with the idea of a covered loggia open on two sides- one side a private walled garden and the other side the expansive landscape. The loggia connects the main residence and a guest house (and acts as a bridge on the upper level.) Homes with outdoor rooms that are primary instead of an afterthought can make us live so differently- sunshine and fresh air, health and happiness 🧘🏼‍♂️🏞

Napoleon I’s throne room at the lost Palais des Tuileries, and today at Fontainebleau, as designed by Charles Percier and Pierre Fontaine in their signature Empire Style. There may be a few differences, but the intended grandeur of the Imperial presence is undoubtedly conveyed by both. . Percier and Fontaine, through their partnership, defined the visual identify of Napoleonic France, designing everything from buildings to furniture and decorative items, with no consideration too small to receive their meticulous attention. Join the ICAA on May 9 for Napoleon’s Architects, offering a deep exploration of their work and legacy, and led by Barry Bergdoll and Jean-Philippe Garric. .

Mortonhall House (Midlothian). The Mortonhall Estate in the southern suburbs of Edinburgh has been owned by the Trotter family since 1635. The present house was built by John Baxter for the Trotters in 1769. Although the family still own the estate they no longer own the house which is now subdivided into flats. #scotland #edinburgh #midlothian #architecture #scottisharchitecture #neoclassicalarchitecture #classicalarchitecture #georgianarchitecture #georgianscotland #palladianarchitecture #historichouse #countryhouse #statelyhome #georgianhouse #listedbuilding #historicbuilding
Historic liturgical elements from the original parish church, as well as from other closed churches, were incorporated into the new church—a living testament to the ideal of nova et vetera— ever ancient, ever new.

I'm obsessed with this doorway that I came across during a previous trip to Paris. Look at each panel, the slight discrepancy in the lines as they run down toward the floor, not to mention the color. Elegant and understated. #travelwithanarchitect #designyourdoorway #makeanentrance

Here's a sneak peek of the longest renovation & expansion project i will do in my life. This project has taken up all my early 20s and it is still not done. However, the things I learned and the people I've learned to appreciate through this project made me a better person, rather than an architect. Nevertheless, the one person that stands out in all these years of my learning is my Dad. He is a super hero disguised as a human. Without him, this project would be nothing close to what it looks like now. . This post is for all those dads who stand by their children every day and make them learn things not in a smarter way but in the right way: hardwork! #HardworkOverSmartwork #WhosWithMeOnThis . . (Still in working stages hence the blue sofa and the undone door!) Also, see how we merged the older part of the house with the newly constructed area - Picture 3 . . Architectural planning: Ar.

The renovation of a Classical Texas home in University Park called for traditional window and door details - A challenge our team was happy to partner with the design team on! Replacement units that look like they've always been there, but with modern performance aspects. Narrow sight line steel windows and doors were used throughout - It can get a little hot in Texas! So thermal performance, solar heat gain, and keeping the interior spaces cool in an efficient manner were important! . Preserving the classical aesthetic of the home - Circa 1800 restoration glass was used for the glass units, and paired with a pane of performance LoE glass. . The muntin patterns and materials differ throughout the home - finished to match simulated divided lites, and lead glass overlay in a natural finish with soldered joints. Overtime the lead will take on a natural patina finish. The beauty with the soldered joints is each joint is handcrafted - The result that no single unit looks the same to the next. #dynamicwindows
Weston Park, Staffordshire, England. I was honoured to find that I had been chosen to hang alongside Turner when I did a solo show here of my paintings.
Pretty impressed with this image shared by @suzanne_tucker of a little skylight installation. No, it's not just cutting a hole in the ceiling. When it comes to creating the perfect space for our clients, we pull out all of the stops. @tuckerandmarks #suzannetucker #andrewskurmanarchitects 📷: @suzanne_tucker

Take a walk. If you're tired - take a walk. If you need to think - take a walk. If you made a lot today - take a walk. Do not clog your head. Just. Take.

Digital sketch late post. I like the background a lot so I posted it 😂😂 ☁️☁️
One of my Barbican Series pieces framed and in a new home! See my website at the top of my feed for more info about these limited edition prints.
Remembering my first “Cambridge” portrait. Completed in the Ellesmere studio alongside Sir Bobby Charlton. My practise with big paintings was to complete a portrait in situ then compose the big work in my studio. Downing is famously neo-classical and I wanted to engage with all the nuances that came with that territory. Peter Mathias was an eminent historian with a particular interest in the brewing industry and as my father’s family had been brewers up to the 1930s on the Welsh border (Weston Rhyn) we had lots to talk about during sittings. A great event was the NPG unveiling in 1991 of my Charlton portrait. I invited Peter, and he and Bobby introduced themselves having recognised each other from the portraits in my studio. A great meeting of elite gown and sport. At the same time I was working on the painting Quinlan Terry was building the college a beautiful new Doric temple or Library. #downing #cambridge #commission #portrait #oilpainting #art #bobbycharlton #history #painting #paint #neoclassical #nationalportraitgallery #peteredwardsart #peteredwards #historian #oilpainting ##bobbycharlton #brewing #quinlanterry #downingcollegecambridge #cambridge #classicalarchitecture #classical
In addition to newly commissioned pews and stone flooring, the Sanctuary was made complete with a historic reredos relocated from a church in New Jersey. This restored piece was integrated seamlessly into the architecture of the new church. Photo by David Galen.
