Designers in the News, Coolhaus in the Haus!

The David Bowie Bachelor pad by Rogerio Carvalheiro

Unless you've ceased to read the interwebs, you probably already know that the Rock-n-Platinum showcase is open to the public on weekends. For a donation of $10 (which goes to Habitat for Humanity of Greater LA) you can take a self-guided tour of these one-of-a-kind rock habitats, get a peek at this expected LEED Platinum building, and support a good cause.

But what you might not know is that Lori Dennis (of Dennis Design Group, the dark design team behind the Alice Cooper Lair) and Jennifer Siegal (one half of the design duo behind the 30 STM penthouse) are both in the headlines this month. Look for Lori Dennis in this month's issue of Angeleno as the winner of the magazine's design competition (see page 140 - 141). And tonight, Jennifer Siegal is being honored by the SCI-arc Alumni Association with a Distinguished Alumni Award. So you see, you really should try to make it out to see another little slice of their work.

But as if that weren't enough reason to come out this weekend, we have an added treat. Coolhaus - our favorite roving purveyor of architecturally-inspired desserts - will be parked in front of the Lofts on Saturday, Nov. 5th from 12.30 to 2.15pm. Even if you can't afford to LIVE in a piece of modern architecture, with Coolhaus there, at least you'll be able BUY and EAT some!

Buy tickets in advance here. See you at the showcase!
