Sundial House in Santa Fe, New Mexico by Specht Architects

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

Article source: Specht Architects

This ridgetop house in Santa Fe is organized around two perpendicular board-formed concrete walls. The walls are an element of continuity, linking interior and exterior spaces and the landscape beyond. A narrow skylight runs the entire 125’ length of one of the walls, casting changing shadows on the rough concrete over the span of the day.

Klopf Architecture and Jesse Ososki Art remodeled an existing Eichler atrium home into a brighter, more open, and more functional version of its original self.

The goals were to preserve the Eichler look and feel without the need to strictly adhere to it. The scope of work included re-configuring the master bedroom/bath, the kitchen, and the hall bath/laundry area, as well as updating interior finishes throughout to be more sophisticated.

Magazzino Italian Art in Cold Spring, New York by MQ Architecture

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Article source: MQ Architecture

Magazzino Italian Art is a private initiative conceived by Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu to house their collection of postwar Italian Art. The commission consisted in a full renovation of an existing 11,000 square-foot building and an additional 14,000 square feet of new construction. The existing L-shaped structure was erected in 1964 as a distribution center for dairy products and surrounded by loading docks and canopies. The new space needed a taller clearance, since some of the collection’s pieces were large, as well as highly controlled natural light.

Telegraph Hill House in San Francisco, California by Feldman Architecture, Inc.

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Article source: Feldman Architecture, Inc.

The original house suffered from a plain, unarticulated stucco façade and unusually narrow, chopped-up interior spaces. The main living spaces were separated from the entry by two floors of awkward, dark stairs and hallways. But the house did have tall ceilings and the potential for stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, and downtown San Francisco.

The Grange in Palo Alto, California by Feldman Architecture, Inc.

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Article source: Feldman Architecture, Inc. 

When the client approached Feldman Architecture with a vision of a family home with a swing on a tree and a barbeque out back, the architects embraced the opportunity to apply contemporary ideals to a traditional aesthetic.  They integrated light-filled spaces and seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor areas into a classical layout to deliver a design as attentive to the house’s feel as to its look.
