Drycleaner/Laundromat/Building Maintenance Reuse

My current design for a neighborhood business owner excited to move into the old Hardee's he closed on yesterday.

Go economy, Go!

Plan to open in April...bonus: he and his wife will no longer have two landlords!

Basement Remodel: Round 3

Still trying to find the right balance between function and square footage...

This is an entertaining kitchen for lots of kids and adults to gather around, not a functional kitchen for meal prep. That exists upstairs already.

individual elements are dispersed into separate work stations for maximum room for helpers.

Key words: British, Formal, Balance.

I love the reading niche, Dibbs!

Vanman at 2012 AIA-MN Convention

What is Architect-Led-Design-Build?

It is a design build delivery method where the architect takes the lead. It is the right way to do Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).

Vanman Architects and Builders has been doing this for 55 years, and I am proud to be a part of this team.

We also partner with high-design firms needing an architect of record, small firms needing the support of a larger firm, and all sorts of architects seeking a builder partner who works well with others, and believes in the value of an architect at the helm.

Learn more at the Vanman Booth #344 at the architect's convention Nov 6-9, 2012 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Or ask me! We want to partner with more architects in 2013.
