Our architecture posts.
Nothing like some dramatic “Before & After” photos to document a major residential remodel and addition! Explore everything from the front entry to the master bath – complete with a narrative about what we changed, and why – and learn what it took to give a house with an odd history a whole new chapter.Read more.
Whether we realize it or not, we are all affected by our environment, both physically and emotionally. It impacts the work we do, and how we feel while doing it. Luckily, even a difficult space can be improved with a few, basic, low impact, low cost interventions.Read more.
There’s a good reason that information technology professionals have co-opted the terminology of traditional architects and engineers. The processes of creating physical spaces and information spaces require similar strategies for problem-solving, throughout design and development, and both are focused on handling complexity elegantly.Read more.
Designing a house is no small endeavor, and visualizing ideas is key. Not everyone can imagine a space from an architectural drawing, so quickly executed graphic sketches can be very useful to communicate ideas as the design process unfolds. This collection explores an early phase of design for the 92nd Street Remodel & Addition.Read more.
Through the fog of the last term of architecture school, I realized I didn’t have any photorealistic renderings in my portfolio, and so, I dipped my toe in to explore what it takes to convert an image from barren to believable. What does it take? Boatloads, and boatloads of post-production.Read more.
Did we pique your interest?
Let us tell you a little more about who we are, and how we work.
After many years of working together, creative duo Blake Scott & Rachel Simrell Scott love delving deep into the work at Emerald Seven. We love what we do, and we hope that you’ll enjoy working with us!
Our Integrative Design Process
Rather than using a “waterfall” process, we use an integrative design process to consider your design challenge in terms of the whole. We iterate through cycles to reach thoughtful solutions, whether they be digital, physical, or a hybrid of both. Ask us how an integrative approach can help your project!
