San Francisco based Winder Gibson Architects’ Penthouse Collaboration for YouTube Co-Founder Featured in Interior Design Magazine

San Francisco (Vocus) November 10, 2010

Winder Gibson and Joel Sander’s Market Street Penthouse collaboration is featured in the November, 2010 issue of Interior Design Magazine. The high-end residential build out of a prestigious San Francisco high rise project was developed for Steve Chen, co-founder of YouTube.

Winder Gibson Architects of San Francisco and New York firm Joel Sanders Architects collaborated with the client, and a team of building professionals to create an architectural masterpiece. The 3,000 square foot penthouse with a double height living room on the 24th and 25th floors of a prestigious San Francisco high rise commands spectacular views of downtown San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, and Market Street. The minimalist design with its clean detailing, crisp corners, and smooth surfaces are made warm by incorporating walnut and blue accents.

The penthouse features cutting edge integrated smart home technology so that the heating system, shades over the windows, drop down flat screen televisions, and multiple audio zones can be controlled from an iPhone. Glass between the master bedroom and master bathroom becomes frosted at the push of a button for instant privacy.

“Ever since Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead, people have been lead to think of the architect as a headstrong, independent character, full of ego, opinions and ultimatums,” said Geoff Gibson. “While the term architect literally means ‘master builder’, we believe that a master builder does not need to be a dictator, but instead a strong and attentive leader of a strong and capable team.”

The team approach leads Winder Gibson Architects to work with other architects or designers in a collaborative relationship. In this sense, Winder Gibson has become an architect’s architect, respected and trusted by members of the global architectural community. While The Fountainhead tact would suggest this type of collaboration could only end in a battle of egos, the opposite is true. There is an opportunity to share knowledge and experience and check each other’s opinions and design hypotheses for the betterment of the project. That is the key: everyone on the team needs to have their eye on the prize, working together to ensure the best of possibilities.

“Our working relationship with Winder Gibson transcended typical Design/Executive Architect roles: rather than passive background players, both John and Geoff became actively engaged in the process,” said Joel Sanders. “By taking the time to understand and internalize the underlying design concept, they were able to make significant contributions to the executed design.”

The Market Street Penthouse is a shining example of how collaboration can lead to optimal results. New York architect Joel Sanders initiated the design process, but quickly realized he was going to need a San Francisco firm to work with him on construction documents, permits and construction administration. He needed eyes and ears on the ground during construction. This fruitful collaboration pulled together the strengths of the two offices and a healthy relationship with the client to achieve a gorgeous finished product. The partnership continues. They are now working together on another project in New York.

“It was a pleasure to collaborate on this project with New York firm Joel Sanders Architects through design, construction documents, contractor selection and construction administration,” said John Winder. “The client, Steve Chen, was also a pleasure to work with.”

U.S. Sunlight Corporation and Eco Attic Were Recently Featured on News 10 in Sacramento, California

Incline Village, Nevada (PRWEB) October 25, 2011

News 10 in Sacramento, California – Many homeowners suffer from unnecessarily high utility bills, uncomfortable temperatures in the summer, musty smells on objects stored in the attic and condensation on windows and doors during the winter. According to Allan from U.S. Sunlight and Cliff from Eco Attic, these problems can be resolved by simply addressing the home’s attic space. Alan Breidenbach puts it bluntly, “If you don’t ventilate, it can cause mold, mildew and potentially health problems.” He is referring to the need for year-round attic ventilation.

The benefits of active attic ventilation are commonly linked to summer months. The Florida Solar Energy Center has analyzed 21 houses and determined 43% of air conditioning design load is based on elevated attic temperatures which frequently reach 160?F. For this reason, many homeowners quickly look to lower attic temperatures in order to alleviate air conditioning usage.

Despite popular belief, a well ventilated attic is just as important during the winter months. Most homeowners believe a hot attic in the winter months provides a heat barrier to keep the rest of the home warm. Unfortunately, a warm attic does little more in the winter months than to create the perfect environment for mold and mildew. As the warm attic air reaches the cold underside of the house roof, it creates condensation. In fact, according to the Energy Performance of Buildings Group at the Lawrence Berkeley Center, throughout the course of the winter months, a typical attic absorbs up to 220 pounds of moisture. In the spring, the building materials in the attic release the moisture back into the attic, equivalent to almost 30 gallons of water. Moisture in the attic causes these following homeowner nightmares:

Local Siding Contractor John Dudley Featured in MetroWest Daily News

(PRWEB) November 21, 2011

A member of the Ashland Planning Board and BNI Ashland, John was asked by reporters at MetroWest Daily News what advice he?d give to someone wanting to start a business. ?Work for someone in your industry to make sure you can see yourself in it for a while,? he replied. ?I remember reading The Millionaire Next Door and I still remember one of the common themes of the wealthy people that were studied being that a vast majority of them were in the same industry their entire working lives.?

MetroWest Daily News also asked John what he likes most and what he likes least about his work. ?Most?a staff of great people to work with and spend time with,? he answered. ?Least?the industry is filled with a lot of unprofessional, uninsured people that seem to undercut each other all the time and do substandard work.?

As the owner of a highly professional business delivering the best quality work, whether it?s replacement windows in Massachusetts or hardiplank siding in Rhode Island, working with businesses that do substandard work must be frustrating. John, however, will continue to be passionate about his industry.

Nationally Acclaimed Chalk Artist Jennifer Chaparro to be Featured at Two South Florida Festivals

Stuart, FL (PRWEB) January 9, 2011

The Jupiter Jubilee and the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival will feature the work of award winning and nationally acclaimed chalk artist Jennifer Chaparro. The Palm Beach County artist most recently captured awards at the ArtHaus in Port Orange, Florida and also at the Disney/ Florida Chalk Artist’s Association Festival of the Masters, held at Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida. The Port Orange win was Chaparro’s second year in a row with an award. The Jupiter Jubilee is in it’s tenth year and will be held on February 5, 2011 from 10am to 5pm at the Jupiter Community Center. Chaparro’s piece will be a 3D “Greetings from Jupiter” interactive postcard, that visitors can sit on and have their picture taken in the postcard. More information about the event is at

The annual Lake Worth event is February 26 & 27, 2011 on Lake & Lucerne Avenues from 9am – 5pm. This is the 17th year for the event, which is one of the largest street painting festivals in the United States and the world. More information about the festival can be found at Chaparro also participated in the first International Chalk Event in Sarasota in October.

Chaparro is best known for her award winning technique of using soft pastel chalk on asphalt and concrete pavement surfaces. “The size and vibrancy of my art makes it hard to miss and creates the ‘wow factor’ for everyone who views it,” said Chaparro. The scale of her work, in sizes up to 12-feet by 12-feet creates an intimacy that brings the public into the artwork she has created.

Most pieces take one to three days to complete. “Many people who watch me work compare what they are witnessing to a monarch butterfly migration – temporary & fleeting yet spectacular & amazing to witness,” added Chaparro. What makes Jennifer’s work unusual is that the large works of art are washed completely away after each event.

Chaparro’s philosophy is that street painting is as much about the performance and execution, as it is about the art. “The immediacy and challenges of the ‘canvas’ (which is often a sidewalk or asphalt street) and the weather, make each piece special and unique,” noted Chaparro.

Chaparro recently received her “Qualificato Certification” from the Florida Chalk Artist’s Association (FCAA). The FCAA has three levels of competency, similar to European Street Painters. FCAA members must demonstrate their expertise through winning awards and showing a portfolio of competence in a variety of artistic categories. The three levels recognized are Semplice, Qualificato & Maestre. Chaparro is currently striving for her “Maestre Certification”.

Chaparro has won many awards for her special artistic style including:

Advanced Metal Roofing Featured in Metal Roofing Magazine MRA Success Story

Amesbury, MA (PRWEB) October 10, 2011

Advanced Metal Roofing is a North Carolina-based residential metal roofing company and was chosen by Metal Roofing Magazine to be featured as a Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) success story in their September 2011 issue. The cover story is dedicated to the benefits of contractor membership in the MRA, profiling two roofing companies who have gained quality leads and installation projects from customers who were connected to them through the MRA.

Advanced Metal Roofing is the subject of the cover story article titled “MRA Success Story: Sales and expert support.” Company President Matthew Musgrove is interviewed regarding his experience as an MRA contractor member and the effect that membership has had on the business. He explains that, while there are not a great quantity of inquiries coming through the MRA, the ones which Advanced gets are highly qualified. They are homeowners who already know they want a metal roof and who are interested in having the job done within a couple weeks. Their main objective at that point is finding a company who can provide the type of metal roof they want and a company with whom they feel comfortable.

“Those are people who’ve done the research,” comments Musgrove in the article, “and they’re comfortable with the idea of installing a metal roof.”

Another advantage of being an MRA contractor member, explains Musgrove in the article, is that the organization is considered a leading authority on the metal roofing industry and their website provides a wealth of knowledge on all types of metal roofs. If a customer has a question about an installation detail or technique, Advanced Metal Roofing can point them to the “Ask the Experts” resource section of to get an objective, unbiased and reliable explanation. This is a free service from the MRA that helps consumers gain knowledge, confidence, and trust in their metal roofing contractor.

“Ask the Expert” questions are answered by professionals from different aspects of the metal roofing industry including certifications, engineering, product development, testing, and manufacturing.
