Homes by Architects Tour

A home we recently staged will be on the AIA Homes by Architects tour this year.  It was an honor to work on a home by award-winning architect, Christian Dean.  

A modern, sustainable infill home in the heart of Linden Hills, this home is Green Star certified and features a 4.9 kw solar array on the roof top. It serves as a model for modern sustainable home design and building practices.

This house does not maximize the allowed building width, instead providing a broad 'solar' yard to the south. Southern exposure is maximized for the solar array and passive solar strategies for the home. The result is a narrow street profile and a well-sited home that does not crowd neighboring structures. Landscaping was also designed toward sustainability, featuring low-mow fescue in lieu of traditional turf.

September 17-18, 2016. 10a - 5pm both days. Get your tickets here.

See the rest of the photos of this home here.

Hip Pop Booth Curated by Forage at the St Paul ACC Show

We were thrilled when our friends at the American Craft Council asked if we'd curate one of their new Hip Pop booths at this year's Craft Council - St. Paul show!

Hip Pop, a new juried exhibition of the country's top emerging artists debuts at this year's 2015 St Paul ACC Show. Hip Pop was created as an emerging artist program to create opportunities for artists to experiment with the craft show marketplace. Pop artists will be grouped into six-person "pods" throughout the show floor, with the intent that each pop will look a bit like a pop-up shop within the show.

We chose 6 local artists to show their work in our Forage x ACC Show Hip Pop Booth: NEAL Jewelry, Ben Feiss, Oh Dier, Wazo Designs, Brittany Pool, and Adam Gruetzmacher

Get your tickets for this year's show and come hang with us and these talented artists!
