Carren's Pitch

Life by Design

What's the best way to get to know the West Coast architecture scene? Call a lot of people. That's exactly what I did while helping Sam Lubell compile the "Best in the West" issue. Here's a sneak peek. You're going to have to snag a hard copy for the full recommendation list from some outstanding architects and designers. :)

You asked for it, so here it is: our fourth annual West Coast favorite sources. This year’s list not only includes local architects’ most dependable consultants, contractors, products, and suppliers. It also includes many of our best projects from the last year. It’s a list that we’re especially proud of, and we think it will help architects be prepared as they continue to recover from the Great Recession and actually begin to build again.

Below is a sample listing from AN's annual West Coast best of issue. Additional categories include Engineers, Kitchen / Bath, Consultants / Services / Suppliers, Materials, Sustainability, Lighting, Glass, Fittings / Furniture, Curtain Wall / Door / Window.
