More excitement ahead! Stay tuned...

UCSC Hay Barn Update

It's been an exciting few weeks here at Fernau & Hartman. We are thrilled to share with you that construction on the Hay Barn has been moving along nicely; insulation is making its appearance, and the wood paneling and glass add to the barn's refined yet rustic presence on the UCSC campus. Take a look at some of the images taken earlier this week below, and be sure to stay tuned for more exciting updates still to come...

1908 Shattuck - Construction Update 5

The past couple of weeks at the 1908 Shattuck construction site, the main focus has been the framing of the second floor, and the installation of the third floor joists. The runnel has been poured, and the CMU has been installed in the North wall. The next stages are the framing of the third floor and the grading around the buildings perimeter. From the opposite side of the street, you can now get a real sense of what the street will look like when the project is complete.

Fernau & Hartman Monograph - Dust Jacket

The design for the dust jacket was carefully considered to achieve a balance of color, materials, and landscape with architecture. The “half jacket,” or “tube top” as we like to call it, features three of our favorite houses. A view from the deck of the Montana Cookhouse wraps the face and spine of the book. The front flap is a full bleed image of an outdoor room at the Santa Ynez house, and the back flap is a photo through the Mann House.

Fernau & Hartman Monograph - Cover

We are excited to share with you, the cover from the upcoming Fernau & Hartman monograph. David Blankenship, our book designer, approached the cover as both a tactile and visual experience. The title, Improvisations on the Land, is stamped into a taupe fabric case and then wrapped in a cardstock “half jacket” printed with one of our favorite photographs of the Montana Cookhouse. Dubbed the “tube top” here in the office, the “half jacket” is just that: a dust jacket that cloaks the book, leaving about one third of the case exposed. When the jacket is removed, a sketch of the Berggruen House is revealed.

LARK Interior Photographs

We are excited to share with you photographs, showing just a few of the 38 rooms at The LARK, that portray the unique characteristics created within. Each room is decorated with different art and infographic themes. Layers of separation were developed to create privacy, including a desk in the rooms that features a knife wall, so the beds are shielded from the windows. One room has a depiction of the largest recorded fish, caught in the state, scaled to size.

1908 Shattuck - Construction Update 3

Today the 22 feet tall steel columns and steel beams were delivered to the 1908 Shattuck construction site. Work began early with all the members hoisted off the trucks by crane and set down on the PT Deck. Once the scaffolding was assembled, one by one the columns were carefully raised from the slab and secured onto the studs that protruded from the deck below. With all the columns and beams secured, the project now is starting to give a glimpse, as to how its size will alter the feel of the street.
