Living Space - Tudor Grove

Living Space, SpaceandreaComment

Tudor Grove; a home and property steeped in history and filled with character. I was first introduced to her by Abby, whose mother, Camille, inhabits Tudor Grove's many walls. Having photographed Abby's home the previous year, I was especially excited to see Camille's, expecting a similar commitment of style applied to an historic context. Not disappointed, I spent my first visit eagerly soaking in each room trying, unsuccessfully, to take in every, single detail. Camille is a collector; of books, art, plants, photographs and natural curiosities, among other things. It is impossible to see it all at once and even now, many months later, I am still discovering pieces in the images that I missed with my naked eye. 

Welcome, to Tudor Grove.

Living Space is a personal project inspired by real spaces being inhabited by real people in a very real way. If you know of a home that would be a good subject for this series, please get in touch with me, here.

ecoMOD South - UVA School of Architecture

SpaceandreaComment

When I was in in the master's program at the UVA School of Architecture I spent a semester working on the ecoMOD Seam project. It was an incredible experience working with other students and our professor and project creator, John Quale, to design and build a real home as part of our education. This summer I was thrilled to photograph the newest project, ecoMOD South, for their portfolio.  Here are a few of my favorite images.

 

hubbells in spain - madrid!

Lifeandrea3 Comments

Happy New Year, friends! 2012 was a fabulous year for the Hubbells, but one of the highlights was certainly our trip to Spain in November. Brian and I finally, after nearly seven years of marriage and ten years together, took our honeymoon! We chose Spain because neither of us had ever been and, let's be honest, the food is incredible! We spent four days in Madrid, five days in San Sebastian, and one day in Bilbao. 

I've got part one for you today; the four days we spent in Madrid. We loved this city, but felt that our four days there was the perfect amount of time. We saw all that we wanted to see without feeling rushed. We stayed up late, slept in, decided what we wanted to do each day when we woke up, and stumbled upon restaurants and bars without much research or planning ahead of time. We new the food and wine would be good everywhere we went, but found that the smaller hole-in-the-wall places were our favorites.

I've tried to give names of places I've shown if they aren't obvious in the images, but if you have any questions for us please leave a comment or send me an email. I'll have Part 2, San Sebastian and Bilbao, up tomorrow! Enjoy!

To follow my images of Cate's home, I wanted to share this image from the March issue of Abode. It is the space of Iñaki Alday, chair of the Department of Architecture at UVA, and partner in the firm owned by he and his wife, aldayjover. I love this quote that Cate captured from Iñaki:

"A compliment we received from a photographer once was that our work is hard to photograph. We think this is good. It means the qualities are not obvious and staged in a way that looks like a set. I have a hard time with spaces that are designed only to look great in a photograph. Rooms are meant to be lived in." - Iñaki Alday

sandy point

Last June, the day after I photographed this wedding, I found myself on the eastern shore of Virginia. I'd been asked to visit the community of Sandy Point to capture the essence of a home and its surrounding landscape in 20 hours. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and I immediately got to work photographing this +100 years old building that once functioned as a bunk house at a ferry boat landing just down the point. I fell in love with the charming, unpretentious nature of the place: the real wood paneling, the campy feel, the treasures found and placed years ago. I stayed the night, shared a meal with the property owners and heard stories of fish and birds and watercraft. We even went night fishing, a quietly exhillerating sport that relies solely on the sense of feeling the line on your fingertips.  The next morning we rose with the sun, ventured back out on the water and captured the community at its shore.

In 20 hours I formed a connection with Sandy Point; to the water and the shore and the pine forest that reminds me of Florida. I hope to visit again, one day soon. You can, too, as the house will be available to rent for weekends and longer. When I have more information on how you can do just that, I will share it here. Until then...

Sandy Point.

This is the third installment of my living space series, in which i spend a few hours in a home capturing the details of the lives lived within its walls.

This is the home of Sherry, John, Clara, and Burger, the folks (and dog) behind Young House Love. I know you're all wondering...are the four of them just as charming/funny/sweet/cute as they seem on their blog? Yes, yes they are. They were so kind to invite me in for my version of a house-crashing (check out their latest on the YHL blog...gah! That house is gorgeous!) and I was in lifestyle photo heaven with all of the details and love they've poured into their home. 

Thank you, Youngsters, for having me over. It was a pleasure to meet you and to capture these images of your lovely living space.  

if you have or know of a living space that would photograph well for this series, please contact me here.

on a street in the Belmont neighborhood sits this very classic Charlottesville home...with a twist. Architect Kevin Davis created a beautiful, modern addition to his family's residence, one that boasts a nearly 270° view from the third floor master bedroom and bath. Hello, dream bathtub!

732 Monticello Avenue is ARThouse, a weeklong collision of art, architecture, and antiques. Check it out during Historic Garden Week to see art co-curated by chroma projects and les yeux du monde, along with an up close and personal peek inside the beautiful home, which is for sale!

For sale information about the house, visit the ARThouse website.
