Tags: Animal Shelters, NY, Pillows for Puppies, Westchester County
Christmas is a great time to donate to the SPCA of Westchester and Pets Alive, which is why we’ve decided this year to move our annual donation drive to the Spring. The shelters receive lots of attention during the holidays and we want to have maximum impact with our Pillows for Puppies Donation Drive.
If you have collected items for the animals, you may deliver them directly to the shelters or drop them off at the studio after the new year.
Stay tuned to this blog. We’ll be posting dates later this winter.
If you have structural damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, or know someone who does, please know that we can help.
New York State Registered Architects are qualified to assess structural damage. Please call us, or another Registered Architect, if you need assistance. If the damage is severe, we have structural engineering consultants that we can call upon to assist.

I hope you are all safe and survived Hurricane Sandy with little damage.
Please forward this to anyone needing our assistance.
We’ve made room for a few “friends”. If you are looking for office space, come join us in our centrally located Pleasantville studio.
The following “turn-key” spaces are available for lease starting immediately:
Two (2) workspaces in our open plan design studio. Each space is 7′ x 9′, with a custom built-in corner computer workstation (computer not included) and 7 linear feet of 36″ deep work space. The month-to-month lease includes utilities, internet access and shared use of our 1,500 SF open plan design studio; office equipment, meeting table, book shelves, sink, couch, large layout worktable, toilets, etc. Bring your laptop and get to work. Our “loft-like” open studio has 12′ high ceilings, hardwood floors and large windows overlooking Pleasantville’s Memorial Plaza. We will lease these workspaces together or individually. This is perfect solution for a sole proprietor architect, interior designer or engineer, but any business is welcome. Rent is $300/mo. for each space or $500/mo. for both spaces.
Private corner office. This private office is approximately 80 SF, includes two large windows, tall ceilings and overlooks the Pleasantville central business district. The month-to-month lease includes utilities, internet access and shared use of our 1,500 SF open plan design studio; office equipment, meeting table, book shelves, sink, couch, large layout worktable, toilets, etc. Bring your laptop and get to work. This is great office space for any businessperson requiring privacy with access to a creative open studio environment. Rent is $350/mo.
Fivecat Studio is located directly adjacent to the Pleasantville MetroNorth train station and is easily accessed from the Saw Mill River Parkway. Pleasantville is a thriving village with few vacancies available. This is an opportunity to be located with one of Westchester’s most successful architecture firms in one of Westchester’s premier business districts.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment to visit the studio or to ask questions about the available spaces.

In order to better present our work to the world, we’ve been busy developing some new online resources. If you follow our firm, you know well of our long-time online presence. We are very active throughout the World Wide Web, reaching out and introducing new fans to the work of Fivecat Studio. We are constantly improving your experience online and regularly update our profiles on Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter.
We use each site to serve a very different function. Linkedin is a great way to stay connected to valued business partners, as well as past and present Fivecat clients. If you consider yourself in either category, please send me a request to connect on Linkedin. I’d love to stay in touch. If we’ve done a good job for you, please consider a recommendation.
We feed our Facebook weekly with mobile updates on current projects and “behind the curtain” news and information. I personally tweet throughout the day on Twitter with thoughts, inspiration and interesting links.
Although less active, this blog serves well for more developed posts on architecture and design, happening here at Fivecat Studio, throughout Westchester County and beyond.
In May we went back to our cyber-roots and relaunched an all-new website. The decision to relaunch was not a simple one. Fivecat.com is our homebase online, and our previous site was entirely designed, built and maintained in-house. It served us very well since starting the firm back in 1999.
With the arrival of omnipresent high-speed Internet access, it was time to redesign. With such a broad online presence, we wanted the new Fivecat.com to be a simple and “straight to the point” online portfolio. After searching many presentation alternatives, including overhauling the site again in-house, we were very happy to be introduced to liveBooks.com (thanks to the guys at BUILD LLC). liveBooks is a company that has built their reputation serving the professional photographer. Their sites are beautifully simple and exactly what we were looking for. The new Fivecat.com is built entirely around high resolution, high quality photographs (mostly shot by my brother, photo pro Scott LePage). Together with liveBooks, we developed an online experience that meets our very high standards. The site is easy to navigate and visitors are totally immersed in full color images of our favorite work. I hope you find some time to visit the site and leave a comment here on what you think of the experience.
We think the site looks great. liveBooks thinks so too. So much so, that they featured Fivecat.com on their Success Stories blog.
We have more news to share on new ways to experience the world of Fivecat Studio online. Stay tuned. We’ve been busy…
Every October Annmarie starts sketching and developing her ideas for the annual Fivecat Christmas holiday card.
This year, come join our “furry family” on a winter adventure at the slopes of Fivecat Crossing.

We are all so excited. The cats are doing back flips.
Listen to WHUD in Westchester County, NY at 100.7FM everyday, all month long. Post a comment below letting us know when YOU heard the “Good News”.
Thanks again Kacey for all your support.
Meet “Dozer the Bulldog”, our new Pillows for Puppies mascot.
Get it? Dozer… as in Bulldozer? As in a sleepy puppy, with pillow in hand…um, err, I mean paw.
Hah!! I love him!
Dozer steps in for our previous mascots, Albert; our beloved golden retriever who left us for doggy heaven several years ago, and Charlie; our white and grey cat who sleeps through most of each day and night. Albert and Charlie graced my blog, the posters and flyers for Pillows for Puppies for many years and did a fantastic job.
In order to freshen up our look this year, and help get the word out about our annual donation drive for SPCA of Westchester and Pets Alive Westchester (two local “no-kill” animal shelters), Annmarie created a new character. His name is Dozer and he was named by my brother, Craig LePage. What do you think? Isn’t he great?
* Technically, we had less than a half-dozen entries, but I wanted it to sound like a real fanfare.
P.S. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements regarding Annmarie’s new illustration website and blog, Anntics.com.
Send us your suggestions and we’ll pick a winner. Be sure to include your name and where you are from, so we can give you proper credit.
