Are you a residential architect solving challenging design problems for homeowners in Philadelphia? The Inquirer is looking for stories like yours!

Almost every Sunday, the Inquirer publishes stories where creativity and innovation in design solves a problem. Some recent articles featuring your AIA Philadelphia colleagues include, Queen Village rowhouse from 1700s gets its latest makeover, this time for a family of four and Delaware County home with two in-law suites has been reconfigured for a family of three

Additional examples include:

Caterer’s new home in Villanova features gourmet kitchens, inside and out 
After years in suburban housing, this couple opted for rural living in South Jersey 
Boudoir photographer lives and works in this Queen Anne in Merchantville 

As you can see in the examples above, all the stories involve a heavy dose of creativity by the owner, who in many cases is how the Inquirer hears about the residence. However, realizing that many times the owner works with an architect, the Inquirer would like to hear from you. 

If you have a LOCAL PHILADELPHIA project where you helped the owner of a SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENCE solve a particularly CHALLENGING DESIGN PROBLEM, please email Inquirer reporter, Paul Jablow at [email protected]. Please be sure to include a description of the problem as well as photographs that highlight the problem and how it was resolved. If your story is selected, the Inquirer will interview you as well as the owners.
