Before graduation, I decided to go on adventure. I came across an article of an amazing house, one that was low, spread out and in a beautiful location. And that’s how I found Birdseye, an award winning design & build firm specialized in residential architecture in the New England area. Here I got to work independently on projects I loved: homes in beautiful natural environments, together with excited clients.
This project is the extensive renovation of an untouched 1960s ski cabin. The challenge was to modernize the home, create an expansive view onto the mountain and make it feel super cozy, all within a relatively tight budget.
For this next project I joined the team in the design development of this ski home by making iterations on certain elements and finally making a physical model of the home.
I have worked at Birdseye from September 2019 – February 2020.
What I loved about Birdseye is that they were not dominated by turtlenecks but instead by flannel shirts, dogs and a very active outdoor lifestyle.
During my time at Birdseye, I not only learned a lot about architecture, making proper drawings and client relationships, it was also a great example of a healthy work/life balance.
