Introducing Architecture Professor William Conway's Book: Everyday Spaces of Healthcare

Everyday Spaces of Healthcare is a new collection of case studies by College of Design architecture Professor William F. Conway, FAIA. In the book, Professor Conway reviews problems and possibilities facing designers and clients in a select series of contemporary healthcare facilities. His case studies introduce readers to innovative approaches to four familiar territories: gardens, pathways, waiting areas, and retail environments. The research recognizes the benefits that can accrue from attention to them, and presents findings for those in the healthcare design industry. Conway is also the principal at Conway+Schulte Architects.

Conway+Schulte designed residence covered in Architecture Minnesota

A Twin Cities lakeside home designed by Conway+Schulte Architects was featured in the May/June issue of Architecture Minnesota magazine (the article, “Lantern on the Lake” by Phillip Koski, is not available on the web). The project was led by William Conway (Architecture).

The architects pitched a renovation, but the homeowners wanted new construction because the best lake view was from the upstairs bathroom. The original home was stripped of reusable materials and used as a training site for local law enforcement prior to removal.

The new structure has a unique “boomerang” shape as a result of required lakeshore setback requirements and a 100 x 18 x 10 footprint. The new home is a 3,000 sq. ft. stucco clad structure that offers continuous lake views through a faceted west wall of sliding glass panels.
