"At night, the Nuler-Cudahy home glows... AIA contest judges praised how well this house fit into a neighborhood of older ranch-style houses. "

Pacific Northwest
"Once in a long while, a particular-to-place structure appears that’s so in tune with the environment, one could swear it was part of the plan from the very beginning."

Pacific Northwest
"...throughout, it has interesting little tweaks. A wall angled just so to gain a distant view of Phinney Ridge. Another wall that starts on the home's exterior then flows indoors, becoming an angled fragment of the top-floor stair wall."

"This pool is part of a spa inspired in part by the Roman baths - called thermae - built 2000 years ago. A loggia wraps around the plastered gunnite pool, and a rotunda contains a circular whirlpool tub."

Vermont Magazine
"Ribbed-glass doors lighten upper cabinets flanking the sink window, a pass-through to the stairway offers a glimpse of light and space beyond the kitchen, and a few bird's eye maple doors and drawers contibute contrasting flecks of color and texture. The resulting mix gives this kitchen a strong, confident design that warrants its glass showcase."

"The weather can be more that just a conversation topic - it can provide a changing backdrop for a luxurious bathroom. When designing a home in a woodland setting it makes sense to invite the outdoors in. Architect David Coleman designed the master suite of this home with a connection to the natural environment foremost in mind."

"From inside, air, light, and views are maximized; every room has two or three exposures. From outside, the house seems small and unobtrusive, like an old camp compound that has grown up over time."

Metropolitan Home
"Perfectly placed in its natural setting, one discovers a curative silence. In this place, one feels connected to all the world."

Mexico Design
"In designing the Buchter residence, a vacation retreat for two sisters and their spouses, architect David Coleman, AIA, drew inspiration from late 19th-century national park lodges and platform tents. The resulting house plays with a "summer camp" theme while connecting the space to the environment through its design and materials."

Architectural Record
"As a symbol for Seaside, Architect David Coleman decided that the obelisk should embrace all of the communities eclectic styles without referring directly to any of them. It also contrasts opposites ... to provoke perceptual shifts and ambiguities that engage both body and mind."

Architectural Record
"A bottle green, polycarbonite wall illuminates the entry courtyard at night, and a rectilinear reflecting pool defines the edge of the stair, marking a dynamic procession from street to vestibule."
