There is a pivotal moment in the latter part of the year where we all feel the beginnings of cooler weather. The breeze from the Gulf becomes a crisp greeting that encourages us to turn to the creature comforts of the season.
Some of David Magee’ fondest recollections are of his young children, years ago, running along the white-sand beaches of the Florida Gulf Coast.

It takes no time upon entering the Todd home to understand the adventurous nature of the lives they live. The Todds have traveled and resided all over the world and have had exposure to a wide variety of architectural and design styles.

The Alys Gazette celebrates design within the community, natural and human-made, interior and exterior. As a part of a new series, the Gazette will feature home interiors through both photography and video.
To know Alys Beach is to know that architecture and design thinking has always and will always reflect a vision of beauty and relational, community development. In each issue of the Alys Gazette, we take a look inside the minds and lives of the architects that shape the implementation of this vision and thoughtfully build our inimitable town. In this eighth edition of The Architects of Alys, meet Gary Justiss of Chelsea, Alabama.

At Alys Beach we celebrate art in all its forms. Whether created in nature or by the hands of skilled artisans, art enlivens our community and connects to a sense of place.
