Another Publication

Andy Linsky and Ana Escalante were interviewed and photographed by "HOme" an Autrian Magazine on 10.26.07 at the Linsky-Thomas Residence. Thank you Silke & Frank for showing interest in our beautiful house. And...Andy, thanks for being such a class act. We hope to get a lot of Austrian clients. Hey, we already have a client in Uganda, why not in Vienna??? a shorter commute anyway.

LEED Rating the Pre-School

Peter & I spent the last couple of hours making sure the preschool becomes a paradigm of LEED rating educational building without breaking the bank. Sound design solutions from the onset of the design process and a thorough understanding of our environment are crucial to its success. I want to go for Platinum, but Silver will do the trick according to Peter. I love when at the end of a work day, two colleagues spent time when everyone has gone home to enjoy their weekend, debating about what is the right thing to do for a project, a great client, its users and our community at large. At Esc Arc, we are certaintly blessed to run our office as a think tank, although at times, we get in eachother's nervers and when opinions and convictions run high, it seems more like a curse.
Thank you guys for being part of my family.
