Project Update from Jeremy Bartlett - Firm Principal

So excited for the opportunity and thankful to have this project coming out of the ground! To have a client trust us based on our knowledge, experience and track record is so rewarding. Professionally it's taken a very long time to climb the mountain. Twenty Seven years in fact. It often feels like I am alone on this climb and it's impossible. But than I get a moment like this and I see the Summit. For an Architect there's added solace after so many years investing in the craft and honing their skills in a lifelong sacrifice of time and energy. Most Architects are just waiting for that opportunity to show what they are capable of. A landslide or life storm might take away our chance to see the dream fulfilled. Perhaps it's just another unnoticed building you will drive past. But for an Architect that building provides an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment. It's reaching the pinnacle achievement. Our completed projects speak to me and say all of that sacrifice was worth it. And to that I say keep climbing that mountain, set your goal and don't let any obstacle get in the way of your dreams! hashtagarchitecture hashtagarchitects hashtagarchitect

St Clare Meadows

We had fun with this skilled care remodel at St Clare Meadows in Baraboo. We turned an existing hair salon into an open cafe for residents, families and staff. The idea was to bring in influences from the quartzite rock formations found in the surrounding area of the Baraboo Hills and Devils Lake. #SeniorLiving #Architecture #SkilledCare #Healthcare

Renaissance Assisted Living of New Berlin

It's not easy to design, build, license and open your first Assisted Living Home!!!! Starting with nothing more than a dream and an empty plot of land; today we are Celebrating with Renaissance Assisted Living of New Berlin and Congratulating Owner/Operator Sheila Balistreri on their Grand Opening! Building from the ground up and lifting our clients up! That's what separates us and what we do with our 20 plus years of Senior Living Design experience. Our goal was to design the perfect space which was homelike, peaceful, secure, private but yet focused on incorporating the ideal staffing arrangement to serve the resident's needs. When the project is completed and the result is a home whereby we would welcome our own parents and grandparents to occupy I believe we have succeeded. We truly are blessed to have clients that trust us with their livelihood and remain a joy to work with even under pressure!!! Thank you Sheila for taking the risk to venture out and make this world a better place!!!! Congratulations Renaissance ASL!!!!
