Moraga Residence in California by Jennifer Weiss Architecture

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Article source: Jennifer Weiss Architecture

This interior architectural remodel transformed an existing awkward, dark, ranch house into a modern, light and view filled space – with a limited budget.   With strategic moves, the interior architecture was transformed.   The plan was rationalized:  the kitchen was almost tripled in size; the plan was made efficient; an entry way was gained by creatively modifying a hallway;  relocating the laundry area created room for a new office, created privacy for the powder room, and allowed for a much needed storage wall for the children.   Exterior windows and doors were replaced with wider, taller, stained wood openings.   Phase II includes work to the exterior architecture of the house and began in the fall of 2013.

New York, NY  — Studio Daniel Libeskind has just unveiled the design for a residential building in Berlin that, upon completion in 2015, is expected to brighten the already emerging neighborhood of Chausseestrasse.  With large angular windows designed to catch maximum light, canted walls, and a metallic-coated ceramic façade, the 107,000 sq. ft. (10,000 m2) Chausseestrasse 43 occupies the corner of a block in central Berlin. Says the architect: “Even as my studio is often called upon to design skyscrapers these days, I continue to love to build homes, the basic unit of human life.”

747 Wing House in Malibu by David Hertz Architects

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Article source: David Hertz Architects

This project exists on a 55-acre property in the remote hills of Malibu with unique topography and panoramic views looking out to a nearby mountain range, a valley, and the Pacific Ocean with islands in the distance. In searching for inspiration, I imagined a roof structure that would allow for a un-obstructed view of the mountain range and distant views.The client, a woman, requested curvilinear, feminine shapes for the building.

A cutting edge modern home both architecturally and with finishes such as enormous expanses of glass, concrete, sandstone and basalt.

Nedinsco in Venlo, Netherlands by Diederendirrix Architects

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Article source: Diederendirrix Architects

The Nedisco factory is one of the most prominent buildings in Venlo. The conversion and restoration of this national monument forms the crux of the Maaswaard Plan, the urban redevelopment to the south of the inner city. The complex – built from concrete, steel and glass – is an exceptional example of industrial architecture, which can be accredited to The International Style with the foundational theory of air, space, and light.

Center for the Performing Arts in Scottsdale, Arizona by John Douglas Architects

Friday, December 13th, 2013

Article source: John Douglas Architects

This 1975 performing arts center was one of the most notable projects designed by the late Arizona architect Bennie Gonzales, FAIA, who also designed Scottsdale’s signature municipal structures, including the city hall and main library, which are linked to the arts center by the park-like Scottsdale Civic Center. Gonzales was known for his simple, pure forms that echoed both classic Southwestern and Native-American architectural themes. Gonzales designed the 100,000-square-foot arts center to include a large main theater, a smaller, secondary theater, gallery space, offices and a vast central atrium.
