Mintzer Residence in Laguna Beach, California by Horst Architects

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Article source: Horst Architects

Carefully sited to embrace a large rock outcropping on a hillside site in Laguna Beach, California. The design of this project began from an initial conversation between owner and the architect while standing together on the site. They imagined a design, which through it’s materiality and physical lightness, would lead to a clear mediation between the structure and the site. The conversation evolved into a metaphorical narrative of two wooden shipping containers which fell onto the site from a cargo plane, one laying horizontally and the other standing vertically on the site.

Second Skin for The Lake and Stars by Barker Freeman Design Office designed using Rhino, V-Ray, and Grasshopper

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

SECOND SKIN is an installation proposal designed to complement the aesthetic and image of the clothing line of the Lake and Stars.  The initial concept was to develop a space that recalled the way in which the designers see lingerie as something that can be playfully exposed and integrated into everyday wear.  The architects developed surfaces of abstracted “skins” that alternately reveal and conceal spaces with varying levels of privacy.  Fittingly, teh inspiration for the structure comes from the pissoirs that line the banks of canals in Amsterdam.
