H+P:A has recently implemented a new office management software written especailly for architects, call Archioffice. Don’t blame me, I didn’t name it.Â Beyond the lameness of the name, the software has enabled us to more easily track the progress of our projects from time sheets, expenses, communications, deadlines, documents, logs, etc.Â Looks like it is going to be a real asset to the office.Â Once we get all our staff familiar with the system, I think it will take a lot of administrative strain off our project managers.Â So, if any of you architects are looking for an office management software tool, take a look at Archioffice.com, and see what you think. You can see an online video demo of the software here.
H+P:A was mentioned in that matriarch of architectural publications, Architectural Record, as part of an article discussing the recent boom of modern residential subdivisions, attributed to our work at Kessler Woods. See the article here. Be sure to check out the slide show for 2 shots of Lot 4, shown above.
House & Home Magazine of Dallas has an article in the September issue featuring the Brock & Hasty Residence at Kessler Woods. This residence represents one Hammers + Partners’ most recently completed residential projects and we are delighted to see it received with such a great article. The photo featured above was taken by Terri Glanger of Terri Glanger Photography, whom we have featured in a previous post. There are some terrific shots of the home in the article, along with a great deal of information about the project, and I would encourage everyone to pick up a copy at your local news stand. You can download a pdf version of the article Modern Serenity, by Amanda Flatten, here.
It is a proud day for me. My home state of New Mexico is moving swiftly to build the first commercial space port in the world, just outside Las Cruces. Designed by British firm Foster + Partners, for Spaceport America, the 31 million dollar port will contain 100,000 sq. ft. of hanger space and is projected to achieve a LEED Platinum certification. Read more about the new port in Spaceport America’s Press release. See more pics after the break.
In the further push towards a green building future, many more mainstream media companies are beginning to do pretty extensive stories on green homes and office buildings.Â Cnet.com has one such story up on the Genzyme Center in Cambridge, Mass., by Behnisch, Behnisch and Partner, of Stuttgart, Germany; along with local architectural partner Next Phase Studio, of Boston, Mass.; constructed by Turner Construction Company in 2003. Cnet has a nice picture gallery up with detailed descriptions of various systems and design details which make this building energy efficient, as well as, comfortable for its occupants.Â Also, takeÂ a look at the video related to the article.
