Old World Craftsmanship By Clifford Scholz

Old World Craftsmanship By Clifford M. Scholz   Let’s try and define “Old World Craftsmanship”.  Obviously, it is a talent that has a very long history.  It is international, and it has to do with quality. It is something that we hold dearly and, unfortunately, is getting harder and harder to find. There is more to Old World Craftsmanship that makes defining it somewhat difficult. It embraces the talent of an artist and the desire to define that art in the built environment. It is prolific in larger metropolitan areas where there were projects that attracted the most talented of […]

Illumination And Your Home By Clifford Scholz

How Does Illumination Influence The Atmosphere And Energy Usage Within Your Home? By Clifford M. Scholz   Lighting adds drama and dimension in any room of the home- inside and out. The play of light and shadow, both natural and artificial, is a part of the core curriculum in every architectural education. Light instinctively effects a person’s emotional state through differing levels of brightness, color and texture. There are essentially three main categories of artificial illumination-ambient, task and accent lighting. Each illumination type should be carefully analyzed and support architectural design decisions. For example, placement of artwork and collectibles is […]

Interiors By Clifford Scholz The majority of what architects talk about is the exterior package of a structure, when in reality the majority of the time we spend is actually in the interior of the structure. I believe if you were to compare the two amounts of time that the interior part would be considerably longer in duration. Sleeping itself represents about 30% of the time spent inside. Regardless it is very obvious that as much time, or even more time, may well be spent on designing our interior surroundings as compared to the external package. My architectural internship kept […]

The Value Of Exceptional Design By Clifford Scholz

What Is The True Value Of Exceptional Design? By Clifford Scholz In our quest to perfect the art and skill of exceptional architecture, we cannot help but contemplate its “true” value. Value as defined both in any quality piece of art and also value as in true capitalistic and financial terms. It is apparent that marginal architecture does little to improve or even reduce the monetary value of a property as compared to exceptional skillful architecture vastly enhancing the monetary value of the same property. The same is true to the enhancement of the artistic quality of a property. This […]

The Art Of Renovation By Clifford M. Scholz

The Art Of Renovation By Clifford M. Scholz At CMSA our projects have always had about 30% of our workload in renovations. I love having the opportunity to bring back a neglected or worn out structure to it’s original pride and glory, or even beyond that. There is also the sustainable aspect of renovation that just seems to be the right thing to do these days. Our office’s LEED training has taught us that this is the reality today. All projects are not candidates, but many  are good candidates. My family lives in a 1923 Dutch Colonial that we seem […]

The Architectural “Process” Cont’d By Clifford Scholz

The Architectural “Process” Continues… By Clifford Scholz Our next to last step is the duration of the construction of our design. A lot of work has gone into all the preplanning, detailing and “fussing about” on the building design. Now it is time for the rubber to meet the road and take this 2 dimensional design to reality in 3D. The first item of business is the contract between the client and the contractor. The final bids and timing are in place and the budget looks good to all parties. The selection of the type of contract is on an […]

The Architectural “Process” Continues By Clifford M. Scholz The design work is complete and the contractor has been selected…………..the next step is the production of the construction documents. These are the drawings and the specifications that will enable a contractor to apply for a building permit and/or additional permits, accurately provide a complete bid for time and construction costs as well as provide the guidelines for the actual construction of the project. These drawings typically will include architectural, structural, electrical power and lighting, mechanical systems and plumbing systems design. The first task is to do a complete zoning and building […]

The Architectural “Process” Continues…. By Clifford M. Scholz After understanding the client’s desires, goals and dreams, completing the preliminary design work and selecting a contractor to work with is the next step in “The Process”. This is when the “rubber hits the road”, as the talking is over and the actual 3 dimensional concept is born. At this point I have an unformulated approach to laying out the early sketches for the site, floor plan(s) and front and rear renderings. This creative activity is really just me sketching. It is very important at this time to be thinking in 2 and 3 […]
