Seattle-based Prentiss+Balance+Wickline Architects, which has a longtime presence in the Methow Valley, announced that it has added a project architect to its local office in Winthrop.
Tom Lenchek, senior principal with the firm, opened the Winthrop office in 2007 with Margo Peterson-Aspholm as its founding employee. Peterson-Aspholm recently was named a principal in the firm. Architect Morgan Law has been hired to work with Peterson-Aspholm in the Winthrop office.
Law operated his own architectural firm in Denver, Colorado, for many years before joining the Prentiss+Balance+Wickline team in Winthrop, according to a press release. He and his wife, Kathleen, have two sons, Axel and Huckleberry.
Law will present a program on passive house design principles on April 2 at Little Star Montessori School in Winthrop, which was designed by Prentiss-Balance-Wickline. The firm is also partnering with Johnston Architects in the design of the new Winthrop public library, just across the street from Little Star.
Law’s presentation, free and open to the public, begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by discussion and refreshments. Passive homes can achieve up to 90% reduction in heating energy costs, according to the press release.
