Architect for the People, Scott Huebner AIA, makes magic in small or underutilized spaces in homes and offices. Huebner focuses on ecological and economical design that suits the needs and budget of both the design-conscious and budget-conscious client. His new architecture studio, BRICKSTACK Architecture + Design (A+D), provides design services at a reasonable cost to people seeking to make the most of the space they have.
In response to a slower economy, many home and business owners are finding ways to stretch dollars, trim excess spending and be resourceful with what they already have. Much the way that larger SUVs have lost their appeal in favor of smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles, home and business owners are seeking stylish, well-built homes and offices that cost less to construct and operate, while still providing ample space and a healthy and comfortable indoor environment.
“As a husband and father with a growing family of my own,” says Huebner, “I collaborate with people to provide custom architectural designs that make the most efficient and innovative use of space in their homes and offices that work with their budgetary needs.”
Here are some examples:
What was once an unused attic space is given new life as a home office and playroom flanked with a steel ship’s ladder, skylights and Icynene foam roof insulation.
In collaboration with renowned artist and designer Randy Shull, Huebner transformed an industrial warehouse into multiple studios, a restaurant and Asheville Area Arts Council offices in Asheville’s historic River Arts District.
Extensive research states that the physical environment in which students learn greatly influences how well they learn. Huebner designed inspiring space for an innovative arts-based preschool within the Cathedral of all Souls in Asheville’s Biltmore Village with attention to creativity, natural daylighting, comfort, and collaboration.
