Inhaltsangabe: Before there was a house, there was a place. Raw, untouched swaths straddling a foundation tens of millions of years in the making. Beckoning with promise. Shaped by seasons. Witness to weather. Looming peaks and rolling valleys brimming with life-force. Amidst these fertile landscapes a seed was sown. Pieced together with a pioneering verve-one beam at a time, stone next to stone, one brick shouldered against the next-a roof and four walls emerged along with the architecture of the American West. From utilitarian function to structural works of art, these archetypal ingredients are essential to the JLF Design Build process. Through distinctive building materials and avant-guard technique, an award-winning perspective was born. Today, we are a collaboration of architects, artisans, woodworkers, stonemasons, blacksmiths, creators, dreamers, philosophers, and pragmatists-delivering more than three decades of timeless structures rooted in integrity and simple elegance. With a footprint that spans rocky mountain landscapes to bucolic expanses of eastern bearings, JLF Design Build has contributed its mark to an anthology of iconic place-based architecture. Powered by inspired design and an exacting eye for placement, our ethos stems from a unity of nature, beauty, balance, and imagination. Welcome to The Work of Art -a continuum of a process that knows no limit.
Anyone can put paint to canvas. Anyone can move a brush around. Draw a picture. Carve a piece of wood. But put the paintbrush in the hands of a Degas or a Renoir, put the piano keys beneath the fingers of a Debussy or a Brubeck, and suddenly magic happens. Art explodes into the light of day, all breathless and dazzling and daring you to look away. We know this to be true. Because the fields and woods and mountains and prairies are our canvas, wood and iron and steel and stone are our paintbrushes. And what happen when they meet defies imagination. Homes of extraordinary beauty. Enduring expressions of the human heart and hand. The work of masters. The work of art.
JLF Design Build is know for their ability to create work that captures the romantic and wild spirits of Western United States (cultural regionalism), built on the principles of old world craftsmanship. These foundations joined with a contemporary design philosophy create the grandeur of place in the outside world as a treasure reflected within a home.
THE WORK OF ART exposes and celebrates the PROCESS from concept to creation, featuring distinct imagery of homes and the craftsmen who build them.
