Arnell Enterprises | Commercial and Residential Design
“Design is food for the Soul and one should set aside two quiet hours of each day to enjoy the meal.” So said law school drop-out and renown impressionist artist Paul Cézanne. Design is an iterative process which demands both total abstraction and at the same time deep involvement, and to the most gifted, rewards accrue accordingly. A good design EVOLVES, and its author perpetually lives and re-lives all aspects of the 3-dimensional hologram as he or she draws from the N-dimensional palette of choices that first feed, and later inspire the entire design process.
From office-based site planning, to moving tons of earth with a Caterpiller© hydraulic excavator, to a delicate cocktail of acrylic faux paint droplets on a 3-strand camel-hair brush, design drives every fiber of our attention at Arnell Enterprises, and sets the stage for the canvas of the day. The final result, often seen by Planning Commissioners, project Appraisers, and banking underwriters as a passive set of Plans and Specifications brought to minimal life by a unique, project “Color/Material Board,” goes far beyond its initial planar depiction. The minds of the best and most socially-attuned designers navigate in four dimensions, three in space and one in time, and shy of the occasionally experientially-accurate architectural scale model, the true and valid test is always the completed project. It becomes a living canvas that must speak for itself, and endure like fine wine to become ripe and mature with age.
Arnell takes on the challenge, project by project, inspired by the footsteps of Michaelangelo Buonarati, who submerged himself into every block of carerra marble with the passionate goal of liberating the creation embalmed therein, and the little-known humanity of the iconoclastic and unparalleled American architect Frank Lloyd Wright: “A great architect is not made by way of a brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated and enriched heart.” We throw ourselves into this stage of every project, 24/7. In our best designs, our best humanity is on display.
