Alexandra Lange

AIA Guide, Family Style

On page 627, upper right corner, of the new AIA Guide:

[C52] 191-193 Luquer Street (apartments), bet. Court and Smith Sts. 2005. Mark Dixon and Peter Guthrie.

In three parts: a 19th-century row house in the grasp of flanking modernist glass-and-concrete twins. The effect is one of an elderly fellow at a cocktail party cornered by two chatty, well-dressed young gents.

That Mark Dixon is my husband!

Full disclosure: he, Peter Guthrie and Fran Leadon all went to architecture school together. But that doesn’t make it any less sweet.
