Proto Homes at Dwell on Design

The unofficial start of summer in LA comes in the form of Dwell on Design. This conference is such a great resource for relevant industry information, imaginative speakers and quality design. We are excited to let you know that Frank will be speaking on a Sustainability stage panels at the conference on Friday and Satuday, June 24-25. If you are interested in learning more about the process and thoughts behind Proto Homes, come and check it out!

PCBC Coming up!

We are excited to be heading into summer full force! Frank will be speaking at PCBC 2011 next week and it will be a great conference with some very influential members of the building community. Frank will be speaking on a panel as part of their Innovation Strategy Forum.

from PCBC's conference schedule:

Reinventing the Homebuilder:

"This is a terrible time to be a homebuilder. This is the perfect time to be a homebuilder. Which of these statements is true? Paradoxically, both, if you ask these panelists. All of them are leading reinvention efforts, and whether they’re creating a brand new enterprise or resuscitating an existing one, they’re all tackling the very difficult—but very necessary—process of changing entrenched cultures, processes and paradigms. While there is no silver bullet solution to the challenges at hand, these leaders’ common thread is a willingness to take new paths to create meaningful differentiation, an unwillingness to simply wait for a rising tide, and the discipline to execute their plan."

If you are going, we will see you there!


Spring- full of possibilities....

This past weekend was beautiful in LA- a mix of sun and blustery winds- with the feeling that spring is really here. So what are we planting? Hopefully some seeds of innovation, change and optimism! Ok, that was a bit too cute, but we are hopeful that this year will be full of growth and ideas. We are already seeing results sprouting all over, the product of ideas planted weeks, months, even years ago- welcome Spring!



Yes, we have been MIA. All for good reason, though. We are in the midst of lots of exciting talks and potential partnerships that we can't wait to talk about! But for now, it's all covert ops. In the meantime, there have been some more great stories about Proto Homes and we are thrilled to be able to share our process and vision with these great publications:



We are thrilled to be featured on InHabitat today! It is such a great source of information and ideas for modern and sustainable living- we are happy to join the party. Check it out....



Wow, what a party! Thanks to all you revellers who braved the rain and drizzle and came out to make our party amazing. It was an awesome time celebrating the website launch and showing the first house to so many friends and colleagues, new and old! We are truly excited to be a part of something like Proto Homes. Here are just a few shots from the night, courtesy of the talented Carla Choy.


Getting ready to celebrate!

This next week or two will be filled with lots of exciting happenings- our first Proto Home will be unwrapped and brought into the public eye, we are meeting with lots of great design partners, and our amazing website is hours from launching! Whew. Enjoying the relative calm before the storm.
