It should be about how you live your life, from the restaurants you love to the city you call home. Even your workspace is a reflection of your taste and personality. So when we heard about the NYC-based architecture and design firm STUDIOSC and how they transform spaces from the inside out while keeping the character of each building in tact, we had to learn more about the philosophy behind the company.Founded by architects and designers Stephen Conte and Carolina Escobar in 2013, STUDIOSC is a mindful creative firm that wants to make its mark by contributing to the growth and preservation of NYC. They’ll work with any budget across development, renovation or full-scale interior design to create something beautiful with a respectful nod to history. They hand-select the architects and designers they employ and collaborate with, upholding their client-focused mentality and dedication to telling each building’s story.STUDIOSC’s small creative team works collaboratively on all their commissions, bringing a cohesive vision to each project. Whether they’re working on a residential or commercial space, they focus on adaptive reuse, a process of using an old site or building for a purpose other than which it was originally built. It’s seen by many as a key way to conserve land and reduce urban sprawl. The character of a building is important to them, so they’re always mindful not to strip an old structure of the features that made it so special in the first place.Related: Illuminate Your Home With Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.One of the things we love most about the work STUDIOSC does is the variety of projects they take on. Some of their past projects include Brooklyn Desks (“We literally turned trash into treasure,” Conte said), Brooklyn Night Bazaar, Lexington Greene, 21 Monitor and Bar Prima. Whether the space is residential or commercial, they always work with scale and proportion by applying rigorous thought on how materials and light can affect the exterior and interior environment and experience.Want to know more?

Lonnie Charles DeVaney

1958 – 2019Lonnie was a man made of gold. Even in the most dire of circumstances his glass was always half full, and any time you were in his presence, so was yours. He shared his love for the peace and stillness found in the mountains, lakes, and streams of this beautiful state with everyone he came in contact with throughout his life. Lonnie loved everyone fully and selflessly. He valued people, and welcomed everyone with open arms, making them feel like family. He was a friend to all, a Saint who loved and enjoyed the company of sinners, and had a testimony of his Savior that was integrated into who he was at his core. He was a carpenter and a fisherman. His legacy and strengths cannot adequately be put into words. To know him, was to love him.Lonnie was born to Charles “Chuck” DeVaney and Carolyn Nelson on October 24, 1958 in Long Beach, CA. Life changed course for Lonnie at a young age when he and hisq brother came to be raised by their beloved maternal grandparents in Wellington, UT. He spent much of his youth running around the mountains with his little brother Mike, and an abundance of loving cousins and friends. He had a deep love for music and sports, and shared that passion with anyone willing to listen. He served an LDS mission from 1978-1980 in Honolulu, HI. Throughout his mission he grew to love and embrace the island lifestyle. The love he had for his ‘Ohana there ran deep, and stayed with him forever.He married his best friend, and sweetheart Bonnie Brown, on January 27, 1984. They were sealed together for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake City, UT temple. Bonnie is by far Lonnie’s favorite adventure buddy. She is a mother to all, together they embodied what it means to be truly Christlike. The example they set is priceless. They welcomed everyone as family, and gave a home to countless wandering souls. They balanced one another perfectly. Lonnie lived for his family. He loved being a father and even more so, a grandfather. His grandchildren were his pride and joy and best friends. They could light him up like none other, and all adored him. Together, he and Bonnie raised a beautiful family that includes many bonus kids. He taught all of his children, both blood and chosen, what is really important in life. The morals and values he exemplified are embedded deep into the souls of his children, and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect role model. We will live to honor him and keep him alive through our treatment of others, and ask that you do the same.Lonnie fought long and hard through an unexpected illness and complications of an infection, ultimately deciding he was ready to return home. He crossed the veil peacefully, jamming out to his favorite songs, surrounded by his family and a football team of people he loved, who loved him in return. He is missed beyond measure, but we know he will stick around. To quote his last words, “Man up, and smile.”He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years Bonnie, his children Patrick J.(Hannah) DeVaney, Cory(Imari) DeVaney, Amber(Jim) Forman, Travis(Anngilee) DeVaney, and Monica(Matheus) Fonseca. His mother Carolyn(Louis) Nelson. His grandchildren Julian, Jace, Alaina, Kal, Bruce, Oliver, Diana, Emmalene, and Jeremiah. His blended siblings Guy, Eryc, Marian, Grace, Candy, and Randy. As well as many life long friends, cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family.He is preceded in death by his little brothers Michael and Patrick M. DeVaney, grandparents Ervin B. and Grace D. Erickson, his beloved Aunt Lola, his father Charles DeVaney and many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.A viewing will be held on Monday, April 1, 2019 from 6:00-8:00pm at Cannon Mortuary. 2460 E.
