April 9, 2013 (Durham, NC) – BuildSense/Studio B Architecture, a design/build firm in Durham, will host Triangle Modernist Houses’ (TMH) popular “Thirst4Architecture” happy hour event on Thursday, April 25, from 6-8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Thirst4Architecture events are casual gathering opportunities for anyone interested in architecture and design. The host business provides refreshments.
“We welcome Modernist homeowners, architects, artists, designers, realtors, engineers, contractors, property investors, building managers, Modernist homeowners, materials and furniture dealers, and anyone else with a huge crush on great architecture,” said TMH founder and director George Smart. “T4A events focus on building relationships, generating passion about good design, creating strategic alliances, and connecting people to each other.”
BuildSense/Studio B’s Randy Lanou and Erik Mehlman will open their sustainable offices for April’s T4A. The building is an old Tire King location that the partners transformed into an exemplary “green” commercial structure complete with wind power, solar power, sustainable materials, and a charging station for electric cars. The building utilizes about 35 percent of the energy required to power a typical building of the same size and use. As a result, it was named Triangle Business Journal’s Green Commercial Project of the Year in 2012.
Build Sense/Studio B shares the building at 502 Riggsbee Avenue, Durham, with ClearVue Glass and a yoga studio. For more information and directions, visit www.buildsense.com.
