SURVEY: 2018 State of High End Architecture

As one of the most established contractors of residential estates, we often are asked what trends we see in our market segment: project costs, size, health of the market, and more. So this year, we developed a short survey to ask architects those exact questions. The survey should take 6-8 minutes to complete.

Click on the graphic below to participate (or click here).

After we have collected and analyzed the responses, we will send you the results in a report.

Your response is very much appreciated and we believe that the report will be valuable and insightful to you as you make decisions in 2018.

One more thing – please share this invitation with your colleagues and network. Every response will strengthen the report that we compile.

Thank you for your participation!

Dispatches from a South Texas Ranch Project

Deep in the oasis of Texas hill country, a new ranch project is underway. At Sebastian, we relish building these retreats, set amidst stunning vistas that exude a sense of calm and tranquility.

Working remotely can be a challenge, but it gives us a chance to offer economic opportunity to people who are local to the project: the skilled tradesmen whose work helps bring plans to life.

South Texas is where the buffalo (and deer and other wildlife) roam. Literally.

“The construction of the ranch residence is of solid masonry in keeping with the owners’ desire for a structure built to last generations. Exterior walls are of white plaster and traditional lime wash over stone and roofed with a soft colored flat terracotta tile, wood shingles and traditional thatching.”

Featured: AD100 Interior Design firm Atelier AM

The Architectural Digest’s AD100 for 2018 list is out and interior design firm Atelier AM makes another appearance among the collection of tastemakers.

Led by husband and wife duo, Michael and Alexandra Misczynski, the Los Angeles-based firm specializes in “edited, elegant, cultivated interiors blending pedigreed furnishings with modern and contemporary art.”

Sebastian Construction Group teamed with Atelier AM and Hablinski-Manion architects on our Desert II project below, where we experienced the firm’s uncommon vision firsthand.

Atelier AM projects range from New York penthouses and Aspen vacation homes to luxe Las Vegas compounds. Profiled in the Wall Street Journal for their work with business titans and A-list Hollywood moguls, this exclusive firm “specializes in conjuring the effects of age in otherwise contemporary settings.”
