Not every builder is up to such a de- manding reinvention, but Dave Prutting and his team know a thing or two about executing precision architecture. Joeb and Dave have collaborated on multi- ple projects. Dave even hired Joeb to renovate his former home, a midcentury work by Eliot Noyes. "I've worked with them for 17 years," says Joeb. "They are a phenomenal project management group. I deal with a lot of construc- tion firms from New York City up to Boston, and they are simply the best at project management and figuring out the constructability of elements. They are a true team player and collabora- tor. They are also the best at balancing construction science and design clarity and resolution. It's clear they love what they do." It's clear Joeb does, too. His pas- sion for architecture is free ranging and inclusive. It can absorb a mutt of a house and detangle its knots, attend to its gaps in comportment, and reshape it into a dignified, handsome crea- ture. Even after all the interventions, Joeb stops just short of calling it a purebred modern house now. "It's not quite modern and it's not quite radical contemporary. It's really a modified modern." Stripped down, sorted out, and cleaned up, the building recedes into a clean, sharp frame for the art within and the stunning natural views without. —S. Claire Conroy "There's a dialogue to scale, and a dialogue to contrasts—that's what modern is about." —Joeb Moore, FAIA 72 RESIDENTIALDESIGNMAGA ZINE.COM VOL. 2, 2019 DESIGN LAB CONSCIOUS OF CONTEXT
