Nice work, Darin.

Darin Johnstone was my thesis advisor while I was at SCI-Arc. He was an incredible mentor and a devoted instructor, he took my project on without ever having worked with me and was remarkably insightful and motivating. I felt like I ended up with a great project, and now, ten years later, Darin’s still continuing to collaborate with students to create more great projects.

This project is a collaboration between SCI-Arc and Habitat for Humanity, a low-budget house that certainly doesn’t look like it. Constructed for $165 a square foot, the elegant lines and compelling angles frames some very lovely spaces and produce a refined, elegant aesthetic. I’m glad to see work from SCI-Arc heading in this direction, particularly with Darin at the helm.

Nice work, Darin.
