Blackburn Architects Joins Phelps Media Group

Written by: Carrie Wirth
Client: Blackburn Architects
Release Date: 2013-07-27

Wellington, FL- July 27, 2013- Phelps Media Group is pleased to announce that Blackburn Architects has joined their family of clients. Blackburn Architects, P.C. was established in 1983 as Smith Blackburn Stauffer Architects to provide full-service architectural design and planning services for equestrian, residential, and conversion clients.

The firm is based in Washington, D.C. and has a satellite office in San Francisco.

John Blackburn serves as the firm's President and Senior Principal. He has 35 years of expertise in architecture and 30 years of work focusing specifically on equestrian architecture with more than 160 design projects to his credit. His award-winning work is widely known for its beauty, functionality and sustainability. Blackburn has built facilities for multiple disciplines, including racing, polo, hunters and jumpers, and quarter horses. He is licensed to work in 30 states, and has encountered a full range of building codes and requirements. With Blackburn's experience in a variety of locations and climates, he has developed a repertoire of adaptive approaches to different environments.

"We couldn't be more pleased to have John and his firm on board," said Mason Phelps, President of Phelps Media Group. "His work is the epitome of excellence. Many of us here at PMG share his work on our personal Pinterest sites because we are such fans of his work."

Blackburn is the author of the soon-to be released, Healthy Stables By Design available this fall.  The large-scale, coffee-table book features vivid photography of Blackburn's equestrian projects. The book explains his principles of aerodynamic ventilation, natural light and passive solar heating and cooling as demonstrated through some of his equestrian projects.  These principles enable Blackburn to create safe environments for horses and people. All author profits from the sale of the book will be donated to Equine Charities.

Blackburn's work was featured in the summer issue of Equestrian Quarterly in the article, Let There Be Light about current trends in equestrian architecture.  He shared his thoughts on the importance of ventilation and natural light. Blackburn's projects and commentary will be featured in upcoming issues of Equestrian Quarterly.
