Lilac Hill Park City, Aerie Construction, Elliot Workgroup
It’s the time of year to rake leaves and sip apple cider. There are some traditions in Utah that are nearly set in stone, and one is that autumn definitely arrives by the UEA school break and the beginning of the general deer hunt. This week we...
Divvy, Okland Construction, Office building
These are funny COVID times. In a twist on “all dressed up and nowhere to go,” I just photographed a recently completed office building designed for an enhanced employee experience, and the majority of the employees are working still remotely from home. Soon, perhaps, the building will...
Promontory Park City, Upland Development, Bridgwater Consulting Group
I recently returned to Promontory Park City to photograph a new home built by Upland Development (Ryan and Jesica Taylor) and architecturally designed by Bridgwater Consulting Group (Clive Bridgwater). My hope was I would get to hear the elk bugling one more time this fall, and I...
We’re all starting to timidly venture out a little more, tentatively, watching to see if the world is COVID-safe. Sometimes I see myself like a rabbit, ready to return to the burrow at the least sign of danger. Featured today is a brand-new store, Dressed, a unique...
Midway Construction, Upwall Design
More and more I am meeting people who have had full and interesting lives who are finding an ideal lifestyle in Utah. The homeowner who recently completed a custom home in the Park Meadows area of Park City designed by Upwall Design and built by Midway Construction...
Home exterior, Promontory
With the fires on the West Coast and the hurricane-force winds in Utah this week, we are all paying more attention to the natural environment. A highlight of my week was nature in another expression. While photographing this home in Promontory, I found myself 10 feet away...
Manasquan, Home exterior
Despite the recent drops in nighttime temperatures in the Wasatch Back that threaten to take out our tomatoes and basil and the orange leaves on the northern slopes of the Wasatch, I maintain that summer is not over! I’m a self-admitted lover of warm weather and summers....
Kahlert Village, University of Utah housing, University of Utah dorms, Housing & Residential Education, Student dorm, College campus, Building exterior
Last week took me to the University of Utah for the return of students to classes and the opening of Kahlert Village, a new residential complex conveniently located near the heart of the campus adjacent to the Huntsman Center. Parents and nervous new students unloaded their belongings...
Lilac Hill, Home exterior, Park City
One of the interesting things about having lived some years over what qualifies as youth is seeing things concurrently in the present and in the past. I spent twenty years of my youth living in Park City as it transitioned from a mining town to a ski...
Modern Out West Architecture & Design, Office space, Office interior
Familiar faces to Salt Lake architecture Trent Smith and Steven Walters recently formed Modern Out West Architecture & Design, and the firm just completed a dynamic office space for FileVine, a software system for attorneys. The location is a former Sugarhouse commercial space previously occupied by Toys...

Today, we're reminiscing about one of our very favorite stories. For decades, this 33-feet wide, 82-feet long lot in the Avenues was deemed unbuildable. But architect Dallas Davis was up to the challenge, creating a pint-sized masterpiece with big style. ⁠
