The man, the myth, the legend.. Steve Duncan! We are going to miss you. California, more specifically the Bay Area, is about to inherit one awesome guy. You’re welcome California.
Now we get to tell you why he’s so awesome…
Steve has spent the last 2 years helping us grow our business into a place of big ideas with the design heart to back it up.
He has been a jack of all trades and a master of, well – all. He’s a doer and a get-it-doner. In just short two years he has:
Permitted 3 new residences, a backyard cottage, a 4-unit apartment building, a row house project, an adaptive reuse 17-unit apartment building, and a whole house remodel.
He has in the words of a client, “brightened the world with his lighting know how, one lumen at time” He has illuminated 9 single family homes, a condo and a mid-sized office building.
He has designed a 14 unit apartment building that is going through design review, two townhouses, a co-working space, a commercial storefront, a 30 room micro-housing building, 2 whole house remodels and a little free library.
This guy’s architectural talents are no joke! But how about those other talents…
His quick wit and zingers when we least expected them kept us all on our toes. And get this – the poor guy has been surrounded by women all day long for 2 years. Just to be clear that’s nearly 4,000 hours that have been peppered with kid stories, hair cut anxiety, and girl talk. Does that phase him? Not at all. And on top of it he manages to out-style us daily. From his plastic dress shoes, to his layering skills, allied8’s fashion meter is going to drop a few notches when Steve leaves us this week.
We are going to miss you Steve. More than you know.
Off he goes…
