Gateway at Sun Valley For the last few months, our studio has had the feeling of a kid’s dreamland of legos, play dough, and finger paint, but the version for grown up design geeks (because basically, that’s what we are). We’ve had to amp up the snack supply around the office because we’ve all been spending a little extra time […]

18 OCT 17 | AIA 2017
W8 goes to AIA Colorado! Two weeks ago, the whole studio went to Keystone for the annual conference of the Colorado chapter of AIA (American Institute of Architects) where we all learned a TON, had a blast, won some prizes, and got left behind by Joseph on the Friday morning bike ride. Here is everyone’s takeaways from the […]

8 JUL 17 | stanley photo tour
Introducing the Stanley Marketplace! What a fun project the Stanley Marketplace adaptive reuse was. We feel fortunate to have been able to be a part of such an iconic project and are so excited to have some images to share with you! Of course, even better than looking at images would be to pay a […]
18 JUN 17 | happy summer!
summer fun at W8! Last week we decided to finally bite the bullet and get some new team W8 shots done. We got lucky with the weather, and our team photo shoot ended up turning into an ice cream party–pretty much the best kind of photo shoot in my opinion! Kelsey from Poppies & Paisley Photography did […]

15SDD party wrap-up Well that was fun! I hope you were able to make it and are thinking to your self right now “yes, indeed that WAS fun!” However, if you were one of the few who didn’t brave the weather for one of the best party experiences of the year, we have pictures to make […]

8 MAR 17 | reuse that dish!
DISH IT OUT You know those little weird grayish-black circular things that are sometimes hanging off of the corners of houses or condos, pointing up at the sky, leaking a few crooked wires down the side of the structure, and in general just really screwing up the whole gestalt of the building? If you’ve ever spent […]
18 OC 16 | flying high
drones and architecture Yes, we’re in Colorado, no, we’re not talking about weed. We’re talking about drones! And architecture. Two of Ivan‘s favorite things (besides muscle cars, but that’s another blog for another day). A few weeks ago, when we were anticipating the opening of the Aerie, we were talking about how OUTRAGEOUSLY COOL it would […]

28 JUN 16 | collecting rain water in colorado
jump on the barrel wagon! Background Before this summer, if you lived in Colorado and collected and used rainwater at your own home, you were a CRIMINAL! That’s right, seems silly, but there’s probably a fair amount of us who have been breaking the law [Like Joseph’s mother in Lyons, gasp!]. That’s what you get […]
8 MAR 16 | breezeblocks and mailboxes
breezeblocks and mailboxes my adventure through Palm Springs Last week I had the opportunity to go on a weekend trip to Palm Springs, CA for a wedding. After I stopped stressing out about how I was going to look fabulous enough for a fancy event in a very stylish town (I don’t think I actually achieved […]
18 JAN 16 | poster child
Amanda Lohry was our student intern for the Fall semester and she made this poster to commemorate her time with us. (It was also an assignment from her school, although if she hadn’t done this, Brandy would probably have asked her to write a blog, so she kinda got off easy.) Amanda’s “workmester” (get it? […]
