The Pierre in San Juan Islands, Washington by Olson Kundig Architects

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Article source: Olson Kundig Architects

The owner’s affection for a stone outcropping on her property and the views from its peak inspired the design of this house. Conceived as a bunker nestled in the rock, the Pierre (French for stone) celebrates the materiality of the site. From certain angles, the house—with its rough materials, encompassing stone, green roof, and surrounding foliage—almost completely disappears into nature.

This project, for a clean-technology venture capital firm in Menlo Park, is located on some of the most expensive commercial real estate in North America, so optimizing use of the property was critical. The 12,500-square-foot office building is constructed of prefabricated steel modules stacked in two stories and mounted on a concrete podium that houses below-grade parking.

Sidwell Friends School, a K-12 Quaker school in Washington, D.C., transformed a 1950s gymnasium into a contemplative space for worship, with additional facilities for art and music instruction. The gymnasium had been used as a makeshift worship space for more than a decade; its location on campus was ideal, its acoustics and architecture were not.

SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah by Sottile & Sottile & Lord Aeck Sargent

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

Article source: Sottile & Sottile & Lord Aeck Sargent

The Evans Center for African American Studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design expands the University’s art museum by resurrecting the ruins of the only surviving antebellum railroad complex in the U.S. The project transformed a series of dilapidated freight warehouses originally built in 1853 by African slaves and incorporated them into a complex that includes galleries, art studios, classrooms, a 250-seat theatre, and public gardens. The 82,0000-square-foot expansion intentionally links the site’s historical and geographic context with its contemporary purpose; once part of the Underground Railroad, the Evans Center now celebrates African American art.

Odegaard Undergraduate Library in Seattle, Washington by The Miller Hull Partnership

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

Article source: The Miller Hull Partnership

The interior renovation of this library at the University of Washington not only transformed an outmoded 1970s-era building but also reimagined the learning experience for students in the 21st century. The project also recognizes the inherent sustainability in renovation and reuse of a facility versus building new. Removal of the building’s most dominant feature—the imposing central staircase—essentially “found” an additional 6,000 square feet of previously underused space, the equivalent of 36 dorm rooms.
