Mike Shannon has begun a new business.
Most of you know that my husband Mike began a new career in 2001 after 27 years in his family's funeral business, Shannon Funeral Chapels. Mike returned to school and earned his Master of Architecture degree from University of Texas at Arlington. Now, after several years of working for retail and residential architecture firms, Mike has launched Studio Salubre LLC. His new firm will focus on the design of smaller, yet thoughtfully and intelligently designed sustainable residences that don't sacrifice aesthetic appeal.
Both, Mike and I believe in the impact of good design; that the integration of beauty and function doesn't mean large and expensive. Small is often more human in scale and intimacy, and it allows for higher quality in the finishing touches. Design sophistication is just as important in a modestly scaled building.
Watch for more news about our new venture - and perhaps we will even offer sustainable luxury home products, too!!
