Colors influence how you feel – energized, calm, cheery, relaxed, intense, even depressed

Not just hue, but saturation, tint and brightness. Hue – pure color, tint is original color + white (lighter than original color), shade is original color + black (darker than original color), saturation defines a range from pure color to gray

Just as no two people are alike, different people will perceive the same color differently. Can be related to memories or specific feelings associated with a certain color.

Progressive Architecture previously worked with BevSource (formerly PSI) on an addition to their existing office. This most recent project was the complete renovation of a dated office space to accommodate the growing company. Extending the concepts of Progressive’s work for BevSource in the past, the result are a creative and efficient take on a traditional office environment. The space includes a unique beverage area, cubicle space, break room, areas for collaborative working, as well as conference rooms, and private offices. The most successful projects result from having a great client, an accomplished contractor, and a creative architect.

Located north of Duluth, MN on a serene lake, the Harris cabin, guest house and boathouse incorporate the local vernacular style with a contemporary feel.

The guest house has a large wood burning fireplace in the center with an open plan design to let the outdoors inside. One can gaze onto the lake while relaxing in the space.

The main cabin is a complete remodel of an existing 60’s walk-out rambler. Progressive Architecture added a large new entry portico and mudroom to ease tight entry conditions of the existing cabin. New finishes on the interior and a large new fireplace and TV area add to the usability for the family.
