the approachable architect podcast

welcome from david doucette, aia leed ap, founder of reside architecture, inc.

welcome to my blog for the office i founded, reside architecture, inc. this is new territory for me but i’m hoping to share thoughts on architecture, residential design & construction, green building principles, green living, and share updates on our own projects as well.

one of our more exciting projects at this time is an existing two story home in west hollywood, california that we are performing a major remodel on. we are providing design and construction services and are currently in the middle of construction. the most interesting aspect of the project is that we designed the home to qualify for the LEED for homes rating program, a new national green building program and the most comprehensive green building program in the country click here for more info.

another project i am very excited about is the complete restoration of a 1956 airstream travel trailer. this particular model has the beautiful name “flying cloud”. it is a work in progress and i’ll be writing more about this project as well.

    I can’t even fathom what a 1956 Airstream looks like. I love them- they are so cool. Can you share some pics?

    hi amy,

    the airstream is on our website, here’s the link http://residearchitecture.com/projects/airstream/
    the link appears to be orange, the same as the background, if you scroll your mouse around it, you’ll see the link pop up. the before pictures are up on the website, we should be getting some progress pictures up soon. it has turned into a major undertaking and we completely removed the aluminum shell from the steel frame in order. ill be dedicating some blogs for the airstream so please check back often!
