— Tacoma, Wash.
— TAComas architects have created an elegant and unique house that would have been built to honor the memory of a terminally ill son who would not have lived to see the age of his birth.
The “Tacomas” house is named after Thomas Tancred, a 19th century American poet and poet laureate who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 1882.
In a statement, the architects said, “He was a loving, generous and thoughtful son, but his final wish was for us to honor his legacy by building the house he had dreamed of for his family.
This house represents his passion and his memory, and his wishes have been honored.”
The house is on the grounds of the Tancreres estate and is designed by Jonathan M. Tancres, a Tancrues art director and principal architect for the Tacoma Architectural Association.
The architects are planning a symposium on the project in late spring.
The house is designed to commemorate Thomas Tacred’s desire to build the house that his father would have loved.
The architects said it will be located on the same grounds where the house where Thomas Ticred was born and died.
The house was designed to honor Thomas Tincred’s wishes for a house he loved.
The architects also hope the house will raise awareness about the need for assisted suicide and the importance of family-oriented architecture.
The project is part of a larger effort to create more welcoming and respectful spaces for families.
Tacoms father, Thomas Tocred, died in 1892.
Tocred was diagnosed in 1884 and died in 1897.
He had two sons: Thomas Tucred and Thomas Taccred.
