ColorReader by Datacolor
Have you ever seen a piece of art or a textile and thought, “That is the exact color I want to paint my wall?” This can now be your reality without scouring through endless swatches to find the exact right match based on a photo you took on your phone. All you need is ColorReader.
This small, portable device—designed in Lawrenceville, New Jersey—pairs with your Smartphone to identify the RGB, Hex, and CMYK through the mobile app. But that’s not all. Just choose a surface and ColorReader will synch with your phone to appropriately identify the closest paint match across brands like Behr, Sherwin Williams, Valspar, and others.
Using the ColorReader app on your phone, you can also view complementary colors, and build, share, and save various palettes.
You no longer have to spend hours rummaging through swatches to match the exact yellow found in the pattern on your living room couch. You can do everything from home in moments and probably even order the paint right to your door.
While this handy technology will benefit homeowners, it’ll also come into play as we develop the best architecture in Seattle. If you are looking to incorporate specific colors into your design, this will be easier than ever as we incorporate innovative ideas like the ColorReader.
Descending Window by Hirt
It’s no secret that we have some of the most spectacular views in the Pacific Northwest. And when we design the best architecture in Seattle, we keep this in mind and orient homes and buildings to ensure we’re capitalizing on these views.
For this reason, we’re particularly careful with window placement, often adding in over-sized panels and limiting walls. But, we don’t want to simply appreciate the vie;, we want to breath in the fresh salty pine air. We want to feel the breeze graze our neck as we relax with a morning cup of coffee.
But, no matter how we open a window, it’s still in view and blocking some aspect of our surroundings. That’s why Hirt—a Swiss company—developed the Descending Window; a window that literally descends into the ground below as if by magic. With just a push of a button the glass slides silently into the floor.
As one of the top architectural firms in the Seattle area, we know that part of being the best is staying alert to the various offerings we can provide our clients. These are just some of the innovations we now have access to.
