by Lou Maxon In our latest Backstory series, Seattleite Lou Maxon recounts the thrills and trials of ditching the suburbs, buying property, and designing and building a modern house with Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects. Week 25: Q & A with Tom Kundig. Last week we profiled our contractor Tanner Construction for insights into their process and involvement with the project. For week 25 we turned to Tom Kundig over at Olson Kundig Architects to get the firm's take on working with us on our future residence. When you engage with an architect or architecture firm you spend a considerable amount of time communicating, meeting, debating and making critical decisions that impact your project. A bond is formed between client and architect and the relationship grows over the course of the project, which helps inspire and cultivate new ideas that may find their way into the final built object. It was critical to us during our selection process to find a firm that was willing to listen, respond to our ideas and have the confidence and experience to elevate and inspire the design throughout the process. We found that with Tom Kundig and Olson Kundig Architects. Enjoy the interview.
