Creating Design Moments

Hello Folly Family,

This is my first post in the Folly
Journal, I thought I would let you know how thankful
I am with all your feedback. The amazing coverage
published and featured write-ups by my favorite
Architectural and Design media, I thought I would
share with the Folly Family some thoughts behind
your experience at our cabin. I have had this concept
of taking something old, neglected or forgotten and
help revitalize a beautiful space with renewed energy
and thoughtful design. In my college days, working
on my thesis, I became aware of beautiful spaces and
buildings being unappreciated or underutilized. The
re-use of space became a creative need for me, in
our copy and paste, throwaway culture valuable
spaces were being marginalized and neglected. As a
designer I felt the compulsion to help these spaces be
‘remembered’ and enjoyed by many.
When I came across the homestead near this alien-
like national park, I was incredibly excited to take a
dilapidated structure and explore the possibilities
utilizing technology and materials which honor it’s
surroundings. Not only did I want to design a Folly, I
wanted to create moments for our guests to
experience, whether it is leveraging the amenities
afforded by the integrated technology or respectfully exploiting the interactivity with the stunning surroundings. I love when you share your moments on our social platforms.
