About Us

Two professional architects, one a compulsive maker and baker, the other a tech loving geek, share their efforts to live a good life, organically.

Talia Braude

Talia is an architect and makeaholic who always has a project on the go. She dreams of opening an urban bed and breakfast but in the meantime she is happy to make the buildings she works on more sustainable and continues to feed her friends tasty treats.

Noerah Alvi

Noerah is an architect who loves restoring old buildings.  She is also a geek who is passionate about all things technology such as computers (a recent Mac convert), photography, gadgets and her iPhone.  She hopes to write an iPhone app one day.

About our guest bloggers:
