This luxurious, subterranean wine cave, designed by Andrew Bartolotta AIA of Beinfield Architecture, won an award in the months I’ve been off the internet grid. The Connecticut AIA bestowed the coveted Encompassing the Art Award for Architecture on this project at the end of 2012.
I can’t help but imagine the award had something to do with the wall of brightly colored cylinders that are actually repurposed snare drum cases. That’s clearly my favorite design element because if it’s uniqueness, but also because the LED lighting glows through the acrylic adding a playful sparkle to what could easily be a much more serious room.
All I need is a tasting table and a cocktail dress…
You’ll find some of our photos scattered about this month’s Connecticut Cottages & Gardens magazine. If you are local, pick up a copy today! If you are out of town you can see a few of the shots of this particular Connecticut kitchen on the magazine’s web site.
AWARDS!!! This week we found out that 4 recent Sequined Asphault Studio client shoots have earned their respective designers the position of finalist in the Connecticut Cottages and Gardens Magazine Innovation in Design Awards! Wow, that was a mouthful. Awesome. The big winners are announced later this month at a fancy schmansy shindig. Fingers crossed.
I’d love to show you the photos here, but you’re just going to have to wait to enjoy your cup of tea and the magazine when the July/August issue hits the stands.
This past few weeks I’ve been packaging awards entries for clients right and left, so it was exciting to receive some great feedback.
The design team at Beinfield Architecture has been awarded a 2012 Business in Architecture Award from the Connecticut American Institute of Architects (CT AIA) for this great private jet hangar and FBO.
This statewide award honors architects for solving business problems for Connecticut clients, thereby demonstrating the power of architecture to shape business performance, to improve peoples’ lives and provide a value added service to clients in a business setting that far exceeds the costs of that service.
It’s why we do, what we do, right?
We’ve been super fortunate over here at Sequined Asphault Studio, and some exciting news almost got lost in the shuffle.Â While we were on our honeymoon, Beinfield Architecture received a 2011 AIA Connecticut Design Award for their new House in Ridgefield!
Congrats to Andrew Bartolotta AIA, Bruce Beinfield FAIA and the rest of the Project Team.Â I was thrilled for the opportunity to photograph the project and had a great time working with the Client.Â There is tons of inspiration and creative genius, attributable to both Architect and Client, throughout this deceptively simple barn with something modern and surprising at every turn.
