Success by Design focuses on firms' personal bests

Success by Design.

That's the name of the game for Springfield's design professionals, and it's also the name of our special photo feature in this week's section on Architects & Engineers.

SBJ asked local architectural and engineering firms to send us photos and drawings of what they consider to be their best work. We asked for details, from the scope of the project to the special challenges the firm had to meet in creating its design. To qualify for Success by Design, projects had to be located in the Ozarks region and had to have been designed within the last five years.

We asked each firm to provide us with a maximum of three entries representing their proudest achievements. It was a tough choice for them, and an even tougher choice for us in narrowing the selection to one project representative of each firm.

Criteria for our choices included the aesthetic appeal of each project, its special features and the specific challenges faced by the firm that designed it. We also wanted to provide a spectrum of projects representing a full range of design goals and objectives.

Did we succeed in that end? You be the judge.


Stufflebeam Residence

Designed by Gaskin Hill Norcross Architects (formerly Hill & Bixler)

Architect Ken Stufflebeam designed his own 3,000-square-foot home in Springfield, with three bedrooms and a walk-out basement. The design is unique in its combination of Prairie-style images with functional living and economy of structure. Pictured in front of the house is Stufflebeam's son, David. More examples of Success by Design begin on page 18.
