He took a two-hour bus ride north to Milwaukee, borrowed a relative's car, and then turned around and drove an hour and a half south to get to the Edstrom Residence featured in the article "Opened House." As a result of getting lost on the backroads of rural Wisconsin–the drive south was only supposed to take an hour– Crain now considers himself an intrepid reporter.
  • John Lautner
    @johnlautner
    John Lautner is one of the best known among modernist architects who worked in southern California in the mid-20th century. Born in 1911, Lautner spent six years studying at Frank Lloyd Wright's Wisconsin school, Taliesin, where he worked with some of the great architects a generation older than he. Lautner had early commercial success in Los Angeles in the 1950s but he gained greater professional respect for his residential work. He was the architect of the Chemosphere—the towering, futuristic Los Angeles home owned by book publishing house founder Benedikt Taschen. Lautner died in 1994.

David Hill, founding principal, was raised among an assortment of flora in his family's plant nursery in South Georgia. In an attempt to flee the land of containers and ever-present weeds, he initially pursued a career in architecture. Alas, during his graduate studies at the University of Virginia, his fascination with plants eventually beckoned him back into the landscape leading him to obtain a Master's Degree in both Architecture and Landscape Architecture. David currently holds professional licenses in Landscape Architecture as well as Architecture. David serves as an assistant professor in the Graduate Program of Landscape Architecture at Auburn University. Prior to founding HILLworks, David helped unearth post-industrial landscapes as an Associate at D.I.R.T. studio in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he managed projects such as Urban Outfitters Headquarters in the Philadelphia Navy Yard, Voelcker Park in San Antonio Texas, the Historic Pabst Brewery in Milwaukee Wisconsin, and the Holy Cross Project in New Orleans Louisiana.

  • Golden Eagle Log & Timber Homes
    @goldeneagleloghomes
    Golden Eagle Log & Timber Homes is a family business that grew from a successful building supply company to a premier log and timber home manufacturer. In 1966, Wally and Marlace Parmeter founded Golden Eagle Building Center in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. With the knowledge that they obtained from building conventionally-framed homes and an in-depth understanding of the building products industry, the Parmeters decided to pursue their dream of building a log home, in which to raise their family. The Parmeter family individually selected trees from their personal property and carefully cut and dried the logs to their preference. After a year of careful preparation, the Parmeters began construction on their log home. The construction did not go unnoticed by on-lookers. The Parmeter family was approached by many people who were impressed by the quality craftsmanship and beauty of the log home. The dream of living in a log home led to a new arm of the business: providing custom log and timber home packages. Wally and Marlace's sons, Tod and Jay Parmeter, ran the thriving building center throughout the day and manufactured log and timber homes long into the night. During this time, the company-wide "board meetings" consisted of the Parmeter family sitting at a picnic table outside their own log home. The Parmeter family's dedication and love for creating log and timber homes was the reason that the sales from these log and timber homes quickly surpassed the sales from the building center. In 1986, Wally and Marlace decided to expand the home production side of their business by officially founding Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes. Tod and Jay cleared more land, built larger shops, tripled their log inventory, and installed new machinery. These steps were deemed necessary to provide the clientele with greater options, superior quality, and quicker manufacturing times. In 1996, Wally and Marlace retired and left their business in the more-than-capable hands of their sons, Tod and Jay. To this day, Tod and Jay continue to prove their passion for log and timber homes by providing exceptional customer service and superior quality homes at fair and affordable prices. Golden Eagle Log & Timber Homes limits the production to 100 log, timber, and custom homes per year. This ensures that each homeowner receives the care and top-quality personal service that they deserve. With over 5,000 homes sold since 1966, Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes’ success comes from a dedicated group of people who are devoted to the time-honored tradition of quality workmanship. The Parmeters are a hardworking family who believes in the Golden Rule: "Treat others as you want to be treated." Please accept our personal invitation to call our toll-free line or, better yet, visit our professionally decorated model home, our showroom, and tour our world class facility. We will take the time to show you the difference in quality, craftsmanship, and customer service in comparison to our outside competitors.

  • Ann Sacks
    @annsacks
    In 1980, while shopping for a wedding dress, Ann Sacks discovers a box of Mexican Talavera tiles being sold as trivets. These tiles inspire her to start her own company. Later that year, she opens her first showroom. It is located in the living room of her Portland bungalow. Ann quickly outgrew this intimate showcase, and in 1981, she opened her first store to market assorted Mexican tiles from regional artisan factories. Ann quickly learned that the enormously popular demand for tile was not limited to hand-glazed Mexican tiles. One early request was to match tiles to Kohler plumbing products. Working with local ceramists, Sacks developed a line of color tiles, and by 1983, offered handmade tiles in 100 colors that could be matched to any existing product or environment. The success of this program allowed the company to subsequently open showrooms in Seattle and Vancouver. By the mid and late eighties, Ann Sacks broadened the collection to include other architectural surfacing materials, primarily limestone, marble, and granite skins, to coordinate with tile collections. Working with suppliers in Italy, the company began to address a more modern aesthetic. During this time the partnership with Kohler, the Wisconsin-based, family-owned plumbing manufacturer, also continued. It was a perfect match for the two companies, as they both approach product design as an expression of style and lifestyle. This collaboration ultimately leads Kohler to purchase ANN SACKS in late 1989. Throughout the nineties the company continued to expand, opening new showrooms across the country. In 1996, the company is the first to market metal tiles, a modern interpretation of a classic form. Then, in early 1999, ANN SACKS introduces their plumbing collections. This is a different direction and dimension, one that fulfills the company's mission to approach design programmatically. This mission to introduce new and inspiring products to the category continues as showrooms across the country work as galleries for material innovations in glass and metal tiles, along with more traditional antique terra cotta and limestone. The company opens its own manufacturing facility in the Pacific Northwest, more new showrooms open each year, and has suppliers in over 10 countries. In 2001, the classic Tate faucet line is resurrected when an old industrial design brochure is discovered by accident. Tate goes on to win international design awards. The company continues to strengthen its ties to premier creative shops across Europe by offering an even larger selection of luxury tile, stone and plumbing products. Over the next four years, the focus on creativity continues as ANN SACKS introduces product innovations like Alloy tiles, Vidrio Glass tile, Marais wall sconces and Positano Mosaics, the construction of which utilizes a computer driven router. The company also explores new materials with Onyx lavatories and leather tiles. The one constant throughout the 23 year long journey from trivets to becoming the industry leading provider of luxury tile, stone and plumbing is the warmth, creativity and attention to service shown by each and every member of the company. The sales staff is always willing to work individually with clients to create a personal environment, whether it is with only a few hand-painted tiles or a complete bath environment with stone, tile and plumbing. Regardless of the scope of the job, ANN SACKS offers clients a programmatic approach to design and the opportunity to discover how they want their home to feel.
