Metropolitan Home article by Karrie Jacobs

Karrie Jacobs has been writing a series of articles for Metropolitan Home magazine, all under the theme of "How We Live". In the October 08 issue she wrote about our house plans. We've not seen the issue yet, only this scan from friend Jeff "jake" Jacobs. Karrie is a thoughtful observer and commenter on design and one of my favorite design writers. It was the questions that she posed as founding editor of Dwell, about why it was not possible to go out and buy a modern home that inspired me to create this collection of house plans way back at the start. Its really an honor to have it come full circle, to be interviewed by her about the house plans and the whole journey.

  1. Congratulations, Indeed! I've been aware of your task since the early days of Dwell. This inspires me to try and do the same thing.

  2. A friend found a copy and dropped it off so I finally got to read the article. I'm very pleased and flattered - wow. Its much nicer than I imagined. Thanks Karrie!

  3. No black turtleneck, no corbu glasses! Radical. Good on you mate!



  4. Yea, your glasses aren't black enough.
