7 Tide Architect Spotlight: James M. Crisp, AIA

Posted: May 22, 2017

Eight New England architects unveiled their Marvin Window dream designs at ABX in Boston. Each architect will be profiled with his or her My Marvin Project window in our Architect Spotlight. Today’s Spotlight is on James M. Crisp of Crisp Architects in Millbrook, New York.

Jim Crisp found his Marvin inspiration in his quest to achieve the perfect fit.

“We are always looking for windows which will fit well in the gables of our homes,” he shared. “While driving through New England towns, we keep our cameras ready to capture unique and well-proportioned examples. The window we designed could be the focal point in a gable or an accent window in a wall or stairwell. This design builds on the traditions of carpenter architects, who centuries ago built the homes we live in today.”

Each architect who designed a Marvin Window was also asked to choose a song that they felt went well with their creation. Jim’s song was Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.”

Jim Crisp’s window is a beautiful example of an architect working with Marvin to create something special. Employing Circa 1900 restoration glass and mahogany, the exterior is painted and the interior is leather stained. For more window and door inspiration, visit Marvin at 7 Tide.
