We’re excited to share that Gentry Home has awarded Fuse Architects their gold prize in sustainability for the Verve Seabright Roastery as part of their inaugural Design Excellence Awards. Check out the most recent issue of Gentry Home to learn more about the awards, and head over to the project page for the Seabright Roastery to learn more about that project.
Fuse Project Manager and photographer Russ Simpkins returned to the Universal Audio Headquarters a few weeks ago, capturing images of the lobby, Blue Stripe Lounge, Cloud Services Department, and Studio 610 (the Universal Audio equipment testing studio).
The project, completed in 2013, provided a great opportunity to create a signature space for an award-winning company. The 70,000-square-foot tenant improvement integrated the technological needs of the company with their passionate culture, showcasing both their Grammy-winning history and their continued prowess in recording technology.
Not only was the Fuse team excited to see how well the space fits the company, but Russ - an avid drummer and recording enthusiast - was able to experience firsthand the processes behind some of the greatest recordings of all time.
Check out the new project page for Universal Audio to see all of the images from the shoot!
Gentry Home Magazine - a Bay Area luxury home and lifestyle magazine - recently featured Teresita on the cover of their May/June 2016 issue. An 8-page article tells the story of the project and how owners Heather and Dave Maggetti - of Maggetti Construction - came to build their dream home in the Santa Cruz Mountains, with accompanying photos by Russ Simpkins.
We were extremely fortunate to be a part of the Maggettis’ project, and seeing their home in print is an exciting reminder of the fulfilling relationships behind our work. We hope you’ll take some time to check it out!

Early morning surfers, East Cliff dog walkers, and the Fuse Construction team all watched with bated breath on Friday morning as a custom steel serpentine staircase was brought in through the front wall of the Pleasure Point House. Moving the stair into place required the 15-ton crane to maneuver across the front yard and into the house itself, holding the stair in position while the construction team fastened it in place.
Fabricated by Aaron Van De Kerckhove and the talented team at SculptureTech, the 2,500-lb stair is a striking feature in the entry to the house. The stringer - comprised of continuous rolled steel panels welded together - winds 90 degrees in each direction on its way to the second floor.
This stair will be the centerpiece of a modern face lift to this premier location on Pleasure Point. Stay tuned for more exciting developments at the Point!
