RAVE AWARD, BEST OF KITCHEN 2015

PARK PLACE COTTAGE

Mpls. St.Paul Home & Design Magazine celebrates local Minnesota architects and their exceptional work through the RAVE Awards (Residential Architects Vision and Excellence). Each year, architects submit their best in architectural design in an effort to raise awareness of the many benefits of using a local architect for home projects.

Swan Architecture was honored to win first place in the best of kitchen category. One judge explained, “The team reverted to time-honored materials—like natural stone, divided glass uppers, and exposed hinges—punching them up a bit with black window sashes that, while simple, really gave definition to a white-on-white kitchen.”

“A CLASSIC REVIVAL”

CONTEMPORARY SINGLE STYLE

Architecture MN magazine featured our Contemporary Single Style home in their 2013 May/June issue calling it, “a fresh, sophisticated take on the classic shingle-style.”

“Elevation Homes wanted something more distinguished than their highly successful contemporary cottages, and yet, of course, smaller than a Hamptons estate.” said architect Andrea Peschel Swan, AIA.

After spending several years in New York, where she designed homes in the Hamptons and other tony resort destinations, Swan came back to her native Twin Cities, where she's busy designing in Highcroft, Cottagewood, Rolling Green, and other exclusive neighborhoods. Who knows? Swan may well design your next residence.'

“THE PORSCHE MACAN EXPERIENCE”

As Twin Cites tastemakers, Andrea along with 2 other professionals were invited to test drive the luxury Porsche Macan for one month and describe the experience in an Artful Living magazine feature.

She wrote, ‘Coming from a family of Eastern European descent with a preference for German-made cars, I was positively giddy at the chance to experience the Porsche Macan. I’ve always found the brand to be smart, sophisticated and luxuriously stylish. I’m admittedly not a huge auto aficionado. But now, after the opportunity to experience the Macan, I’m preparing myself for the emotional goodbye that will inevitably occur when I have to return it. It’s been a first-class Cinderella experience, and the ball is coming to its end. I may just have to consider keeping it so that the fantasy can continue.’
