We’re going to move the awning up and add signage that looks something like this.
Dave’s studio is in the building at the back of the courtyard (in the top photo). In addition to designing and renovating the inside of the building, we also need to figure out how to use his courtyard well.
I PhotoShop-ed a sign onto the photo to see what that could look like. In honor of the movie, I’ve used Helvetica font here. (Please note: No sign is installed yet. The design Dave selects will have to be approved by the Downtown Design Review committee before we can do that. It is likely to be much smaller than what I’m simulating here.)
I’ve included a few photos Dan Bell sent from the other night….

We haven’t yet started moving Dave into his new photography studio at 610 High Street, but we’re starting to design how he will use the space. Our friends Jenn White and Dan Bell met us there the other night to celebrate Dave’s news.
Looking north on the 600 block of High Street in Portsmouth, Virginia. Dave’s new studio space is at the back of his courtyard.

Jenn White and Dan Bell brought champagne to toast the move!
From the back door of the studio, you see the back side of five houses I designed on Green and London Streets.
We proceeded down the street to the Baron’s Pub.
And Jenn’s boyfriend Landon joined us.
Here’s the nearby St. Paul’s Catholic Church that’s near to our hearts.
