We are pleased to announce that after many months of dotting ‘i’s and crossing ’t’s, our Canyon Road Bridge House has been certified by the US Green Building Council as LEED Certified - Platinum Level, their top designation.  We’re grateful to our ATA project manager Devin Kinney, contractor Prull Custom Builders, LEED specialists Steve Onstadt and Dee Bangert, and all the other sub consultants and subcontractors.  And of course the owner, Mark Stibich and the late Julie Stachowiak, who tragically spent only one year living in

Fall retreat at Arkin Tilt Architects:  picking pumpkins, milking goats & making goat cheese at our Vida Verde Education Center project, hanging out in the Santa Cruz Straw Bale house we designed, and taking in the beautiful scenery of the California Coast.  It was a good way to say farewell to Amanda Knowles, working ably with us for seven years. 

With thanks to Tamar at Pie Ranch for the photo of all of us plus the ranch dog!
