The Architecture of the Dempwolfs

Mark Shermeyer was recently the guest speaker at the York County Heritage Trust sponsored by OLLI at Penn State York. Mark’s presentation provided an overview of J.A. Dempwolf and his work, as well as his contributions to York. Mark has been researching Dempwolf’s work since 1980 and has taught numerous classes on this subject. This topic never gets old in York!!

SAAarchitects’ Brook Hill Residence project is now complete. This eco-friendly and unique project will be seeking LEED for Homes certification. It  will be the first LEED certified residence in York County, and one of only a few in Central PA. LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council recognizes and celebrates green building techniques across the nation. The design of the residence features spacious single floor, open-plan living, eliminating the formality of unused rooms. The home’s exterior is clad in fiber cement siding and composite wood materials, while the inside features cork flooring throughout. The home maximizes the use of sustainable materials by utilizing recyclable content, so home owners can live clean, green, and happy.

The upper levels of the building will feature 47 residential apartments and 3 additional commercial suites. Visitors and renters will also enjoy a below-grade parking garage, rooftop garden, glass atrium, and new, contemporary glass and steel canopy structures.

Out Door Country Club Update

Last month, SAAarchitects began Phase 1 of the exciting new renovations at the Out Door Country Club in York. When completed, the renovations and expansions provided will allow ODCC to offer more flexibility and more luxury while entertaining members.

This week, we have some exciting updates on the status of this project. All new landscaping is completed and looks wonderful—and the patio area is now a very spacious 5,100 square feet!

We have completed the new pavers over both the former and new patio areas, and are currently working on accent lighting and fire pit installation, which will provide some great ambiance for members and guests. We are excitedly waiting for new furniture and movable planters to be placed as the ‘finishing touches’ to this beautiful new outdoor area, which is sure to be greatly enjoyed.
