Dramatic Impact in New England Home collaboration

by Tektonika Studio Architects on March 1, 2012

Tektonika Studio Architects’ collaboration with Seldom Scene Interiors is highlighted in the Mar/Apr 2011 issue of New England Home magazine.  The extensive architectural renovation of this Stowe, Vermont home included the demolition and re-configuration of the home’s overall spatial allocations and programmatic adjacencies as well as the reconsideration of the structural, mechanical and electrical systems.  Architectural services provided by TSA for the home allowed the re-imagined spaces to become a welcoming palette which comes alive through collaboration with Seldom Scene Interiors to make a truly “Dramatic Impact” as the article chronicles.


Interior design: Wendy Valliere, Seldom Scene Interiors
Architecture: Ernest Ruskey, Tektonika Studio Architects
Builder: B&D Builders

ARTICLE EXCERPT: “Accustomed to tackling seemingly impossible projects for demanding clients, Valliere rarely saw the fourteen-month renovation as daunting. With the assistance of architect Ernest Ruskey of Stowe’s Tektonika Studio Architects, she stripped the house down to just three walls, installing all new electrical, plumbing and air conditioning systems and moving almost every door and window. “We literally took the roof off, removed floors and reconstructed the house,” says Ruskey.”
