Sheridan architect Dan Stalker opened two of the buildings he's designed, a home and a studio/office in the Sheridan area, to the public Friday afternoon.
The Boyle residence on Eagle Ridge Drive in the Powder Horn was open from 1 till 2 for public tours, and the Wyatt Studio on South Thurmond Street was open from 3 until 4. Stalker said both were part of a nationwide observance of National Architecture Week.
National Architecture Week was April 9 through 15. Stalker said in Wyoming, there were six tours in addition to the two in Sheridan. He explained why the two Sheridan buildings were chosen, starting with the residence in the Powder Horn.
He said the residence is now for sale because the Boyles moved back to South Carolina. The studio was designed and built for Bob and Dianne Wyatt at their residence on Thurmond Hill.
He said the studio was finished last summer. In addition to the art studio, the design includes a law office and a small bedroom for use by the Wyatts' grandchildren. Stalker said in addition to the national celebration, this is a special year for Wyoming. He said the Wyoming chapter of the American Institute of Architects was founded 70 years ago.
