"Maryann Thompson Architects is a Cambridge-based architecture firm that offers a wide range of services to public and private clients. They specialize in architecture that is sustainable, regionally driven and that attempts to heighten the phenomenological qualities of the site in which they work. Their architectural investigations revolve around such concerns as the creation of a rich and thoughtful edge between inside and outside, utilizing light as a medium, and employing warm, natural materials in order to accentuate a sense of place. Maryann received a 1998 AIA Young Architects Award, which states that although Maryann has been "...in practice for less than a decade, she has made a significant contribution to architecture. Her work reconnects architecture with the landscape and celebrates tectonics, materials and a poetic approach to design."

Bruce Fox is known for his just-edgy-enough approach to design.

Woodmeister Master Builders /// SUMMER 2011

"Woodmeister Master Builders began in 1980 when Ted Goodnow convinced his parents to give him the money they had set aside for his college education so that he could start a woodworking business instead. While still a teenager, he completed a two-year cabinet and furniture making apprenticeship and opened his business in Worcester. His brother joined him and the two craftsmen began to carve out a niche in the commercial and residential millwork and cabinetry market.
Five years later, Ted purchased his brother’s share of the business and changed the name to Woodmeister Corporation. Joined by his wife Kim, Ted devoted his time to managing and building Woodmeister into an internationally renowned, multi-million dollar company, and a leader in the construction of legacy homes. Ted and Kim have cultivated a corporate culture that thoroughly fosters and reinforces the qualities of excellence in the workplace, the spirit of life long mentoring, and the pursuit of achieving customer delight."
