“Obviously windows and doors set the tone and character. Here we wanted to create a romantic notion of a house, balancing the amount of glazing and wall surface to maintain character, but by the same token take advantage of the views and vistas. Marvin worked really well with us to create unique windows and door that we incorporated into this house.” – Patrick Ahearn, Architect, 2014 Marvin Architect Challenge Best In Show Winner
Quiet on the set! Architectural Digest recently created a pair of videos about the 2014 Marvin Architect Challenge Best In Show winning project “Shingle-Style Sanctuary.”
Terry Hills from Marvin Design Gallery by MHC did a great job as a representative for the Marvin brand, while winning architect Patrick Ahearn shared how Marvin helped him achieve his vision for the house. This beautiful project will also be highlighted in the October issue of Architectural Digest.
In the first video, Patrick discusses the details of the winning home’s design.
The second video takes a closer look at the challenges of—and solutions for—designing a waterfront home on Martha’s Vineyard.
We are proud to work with Patrick, our other Top Ten winners Michael Waters, Russ Tyson, and Mahdad Saniee, and all of the talented architects who participated in this year’s Marvin Architects Challenge. You inspire us every day with your vision, passion and creativity!
