Peterson Residence in Chevy Chase, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, this project involves a complete renovation and substantial addition to a familiar, simply massed brick “colonial”.   The original, gable shaped volume fronting the street is minimally altered in an effort to retain the scale and massing of neighboring houses.  Tall windows are incorporated into the existing façade.  A copper clad, vaulted volume is integrated into the composition with a new front porch and wide stairs, invoking the nostalgic porches found throughout the neighborhood.

Joan Puigbert Primary School in Girona, Spain by Mias Arquitectes

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Article source: Mias Arquitectes

Annexa-Joan Puigbert is the name of the school that occupies a T-shaped building from the 50s of the 20th century. Its main building lies along the main street, and in the middle point there is another building which is perpendicular. The building’s topographical position is strange, due to the steep hill where the school was built.

Doe Bay Cabin in Orcas Island, Washington by Heliotrope Architects

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Article source: Heliotrope Architects

Our clients for this project have been traveling regularly to Doe Bay Resort on Orcas Island for two decades.  Now with two young children they have formalized their affection for the place by purchasing property located a short walk from the resort.   We were challenged to design a modest cabin in size and cost (but not in character) that captures the spirit of this place while reflecting the Japanese and Chinese heritage of the owners.

This is a mass-produced type ready-built house often developed on a large scale, and as such, has the advantage of producing entire housing of rows. In many cases, as the appearance is coordinated at the designation of the owner, rows of houses that do not necessity match esthetically are created.
