Trinity Western University Memorial Garden: Feature Project

Solus Hemi firepit lit at memorial garden university of trinity western langley BC

A scholarship and courtyard renovation honor the life of Jordan Thiessen.

A very special fire pit was installed at the Trinity Western University in British Columbia. It is in memory of the life of Jordan Thiessen who was a student at the university. During his time at the university Jordan felt that the unloved and uncared for Douglas Courtyard could be a beautiful space. With some planting and a fire pit it would offer a place for students to relax and enjoy on campus.  Something he shared with his parents during a campus visit.

When Jordan sadly lost his life on October 18 2012, just 12 days after he married his university sweetheart, the family wanted to do something in his memory. His parents, Shirley and Carey set up the Jordan Thiessen Memorial Scholarship endowment but they wanted to do more. They recognized the deep impact that the University had on Jordan’s short life. They felt that making over the Douglas courtyard would not only honor Jordan, but it would also benefit all future students. Shirley threw herself into raising funds for both the scholarship and the courtyard project. The Jordan Thiessen Memorial Courtyard was dedicated September 14, 2013. On what would have been Jordan’s 24th birthday.

The memorial garden is now a wonderful place for students to enjoy, which gives great pleasure to Jordan’s parents.  If you would like to give to the courtyard project, or to the Jordan Thiessen Memorial Scholarship, please email Shirley Thiessen at shirley.thiessen@twu.ca.

Feature Project: A residential redevelopment in San Francisco

Our feature project is a look back at a fantastic redevelopment in the Noe Valley area of San Fancisco as featured in Dwell.

 

A tech industry couple made the decision to make the move from Palo Alto to seek out a new life in San Francisco.  They were keen to create a contemporary property that could take on their style and smart technology that encompasses their day to day lives.  After much searching they eventually found the right property in the Noe Valley area of San Francisco but it needed considerable work to make their dream a reality.  In order to make their dream a reality they called on architect Christi Azevedo. Christi is a San Fancisco based architect with an impressive portfolio with an eclectic mix of property styles who is well know in the San Francisco area for her expertise in giving worn out houses a new lease of life.  The property in Noa Valley was a compartmentalized 1970s style property and Christi Azevedo transformed the property into an open plan living space with an emphasis on indoor outdoor living, by careful focus on the materials used both indoors and outdoors.

The external facade of the building was transformed by the use cedar boards that were charred using the ancient Japanese art of shou sugi ban. The couple researched the technique extensively, and even considered doing it themselves, before Azevedo convinced them to outsource the job to a Texas studio, Delta Millworks.  The couple were thrilled with the results and love the contemporary back drop this creates for the outdoor living space that is opened up fully thanks to the installation of bifold doors.  To complete the renovation of the exterior the rear patio was raised to bring in line with the level of the kitchen and the original redwood decking was reused and supplemented with recycled pieces from other projects.  The couple added a Solus Hemi fire pit to complete this well designed outdoor living space. The couple selected the cinder finish to compliment the overall color scheme to the external facade.

The Hemi fire bowl creates a contemporary focal point to an outdoor seating area, and ideal spot to relax in the evening as the sun goes down and perfect for the weather in San Francisco, ensuring that the indoor outdoor living space can be used all year round even in the cooler months of the year. Available in three sizes to suit any space these round, concrete fire pits add heat, atmosphere and simple beauty. Our ‘cross-jet’ and ethanol burners provide ample flames and are built to last. As with all of our fire pits, Hemi 26, 36 and 48 are fully certified and come with warranties on parts and performance.

Hotel Eastlund in Portland features Hemi 36″ firebowl

Hotel Eastlund

If you’re travelling to Portland anytime soon, may we suggest staying at the trendy new Hotel Eastlund?  This newly opened luxury boutique hotel located in the city’s Eastside neighbourhood has decided to include a Solus Hemi 36″ firebowl on their dining room patio. They chose the version with a glass shield and electronic start allowing the hotel staff to turn it on and off with ease from a wall switch.

Their decision to choose Solus was perfect as their hotel combines classic, clean lines with modern sophistication which is exactly the same concept of how our firebowls were designed.

What’s interesting about this hotel is that it used to be a Days Inn. It underwent a massive renovation and is now one of the top boutique hotels across United States featuring impeccable design and commissioned artwork. We are thrilled they chose our Solus Hemi to be a part of their patio and look forward to warming many Portlanders and tourists from abroad.
