It was a pleasure to work with both on this outstanding project," says ABSi Sales Consultant Loren Monge. Field Architecture (fA) is an internationally recognized father and son team, the recent winner of multiple Progressive Architecture (PA) Awards. Founded by Stan Field and son, Jess Field, based on Stan’s 40 years of practice, fA is a multi-generational firm dedicated to deepening the connection between people and the places they love. Stan and Jess draw inspiration from the unique qualities and character of each site, to create architecture that is congruous with the landscape, and buildings that are beautiful, practical, and provide lasting places of interchange between the made and the natural. fA’s approach is imaginative and rigorous, and draws on the marriage of the art and science of architecture – both creative and technical – to impart a sense of wonder in their designs. The chemistry between a Client and Place forms the point of departure for every project. The location of a building within the broader context of the region or culture in which a project is being designed is essential, and often forms the basis for our inspiration. Situating the building in its specific terrain is where the building design begins, in essence, creating the set which will allow the architecture to respond to the particularities of its climate, topography, soil, hydrology, and flora. We think of Architecture as an instrument through which to experience this exquisite combination of elements which make a place unique. All Photography by Steve Goldband and Ellen Konar.
