For our final #throwbackThursday for Gardner/Fox’s birthday, we found a picture of the whole GFA founding crew (and their lovely ladies). This photo is from the Pre-Kentucky Derby Ball for Baker industries in 1996. In this photo we have Brook Gardner (back middle), Mark Fox (front, sitting), and Mark Pennington (far right).
Do your tile floors need an update? We’ve been inspired by these new patterned concrete tiles! They’re versatile and eye-catching and using pattern floor tile is a great way to give a small space a ton of personality. They work perfectly for back splashes in the kitchen, floors in the bathroom, or even add a splash of fun in a mud room. Here are a few of the inspiring patterns we are loving right now!
Time for our next #ThrowbackThursday
Take it back to 95′! Here we have Mark Pennington and Bill Bragdon leading the GFA team to benefit Multiple Sclerosis research. Truth be told, Mark still rides his bike to work on occasion. Keep pounding those pedals Mark!
Welcome to Tower House! We recently had the chance to renovate one of the first homes, in the first development, in Bryn Mawr. This gorgeous home was built in 1887 . The home was apart of the first development constructed by Wendell & Smith. Our renovations to the home included the kitchen, mud room, powder room, living room, guest suite, and the master suite. We will have the pictures from the Tower House renovation uploaded soon, so keep checking back to see our modern take on this historic home.

Here we are in 1995 with Mark Pennington and Jeb Bland, receiving Remodeling Magazine’s Big 50 Award! Congratulations Gardner/Fox, although we have won this award a few times since, the first time is always the sweetest!
To celebrate Gardner/Fox’s 29th birthday, we’ve dusted off a few photos for #throwbackthursday for every Thursday this month!
Remember that time we re-designed the Bryn Mawr fire house? We do! Check out our partners Brook Gardner and Mark Pennington going over plans with the fire company president Tom Drennan, back in 1997, 19 years ago!
P.S. We miss that mustache, Mark!
Recently our very own Joanna Trago was recognized by the Community Design Collaborative (CDC) with the “Best Supporting Actor” award. For the past six years, Joanna has volunteered to provide the CDC with construction cost estimates for various projects. Joanna has been with Gardner/Fox for 11 years, primarily on the commercial estimating team. You can read all about Joanna and her good works at www.cdc.com. Keep up the great work Joanna!
Our interior designers were loose in the big city last week to attend the Architectural Digest Design show. The show takes place every year, and with a whopping 400 brands, they had a lot to take in (needless to say, they found some new inspiration). Thanks to Kristen Lukach at Ferguson Enterprises for allowing us to make the trip with you!
One thing that has become a must have in bathroom renovations: recessed niches. Easily customizable, niches are a great way to show off an extra flair of style and make your bathroom get away your own. The best part? Extra storage! Niches are the best spots for your toiletries.
