Studhorse in Washington by Olson Kundig

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Set in the remote Methow Valley, Studhorse responds to the clients’ desire to experience and engage the surrounding environment throughout all four seasons. Referencing the tradition of circling wagons, the buildings—four small, unattached structures—are scattered around a central courtyard and pool. The 20-acre site is nestled in the northern portion of the 60 mile long glacial valley and the buildings are arranged to frame carefully composed views of the surrounding Studhorse Ridge and Pearrygin Lake.

Design Studio JGMA Celebrates Pilsen’s Identity with the Creative Office Campus ‘Mural Park’

JGMA to rehab two vacant warehouse buildings in Chicago’s Pilsen community

Chicago, Illinois: Pilsen, in Chicago’s Lower West Side is well-known for its richness in culture and diversity as well as its abundant public art, particularly, lively murals. Chicago common brick façades have become canvases for local artists that frequently embody Mexican heritage and American dreams. To encourage the sustainable development of Pilsen by respecting the resident’s vision for their community, design studio JGMA, Condor Partners and Chicago Development Partners are collaborating with the National Museum of Mexican Art and community groups to create the innovative office campus ‘Mural Park’. Mural Park is designed to be an inclusive organic community accessible to existing local businesses, new economy users and more traditional flex-office users.

Road to Awe (RtA) in California by Dan Brunn Architecture

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017

Article source: Dan Brunn Architecture

The flagship store of Road to Awe (RtA) is as streetwise as the clothes produced by this Los Angeles fashion brand. Los Angeles architect Dan Brunn, AIA, created a complex, dream-like space with geometric precision, meditative sensations, and positive/negative dualities. Graced with street exposure from two sides, the streamlined boutique proclaims its variably angled black façades to the public. Dan Brunn Architecture renovated a 1,200-square-foot, 1970s building to create the new retail space, maintaining its footprint, but completely reshaping its geometry to create a more cohesive, sculptural experience. Inside, the 10-foot-tall space features concrete floors, black mirrors, wood surfaces, and blackened steel beams, creating a minimalist backdrop to the edgy fashion. An interior garden contributes calm and brings a mannered sense of nature into the scene.

Yojisan Sushi in Beverly Hills, California by Dan Brunn Architecture

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Article source: Dan Brunn Architecture

Dan Brunn Architecture created a surreal, minimalist space for diners to experience Yojisan Sushi in Beverly Hills, CA, through a narrative of allusion and light. This subtle surrealism begins with the façade, which beckons guests to enter a threshold subdivided by delicately intersecting planes. The transition from city street to refuge—chaos to serenity—is experienced on multiple levels. Instead of relying on restaurant design clichés, the architect elected “to step through the looking glass” with this design, upending ordinary representations of sushi restaurants. The result is a simple yet substantial visual array inspired by traditional Japanese materials, culture, and lifestyle.

Beach Haven Residence in Long Beach Island, New Jersey by Specht Architects

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Article source: Specht Architects

This house is located on the Atlantic coast in New Jersey. The lot is on the beachfront, but very small, tucked away from the street, and had many code-regulated square-footage and height restrictions. The challenge was to create something open and light-filled that takes advantage of its beautiful setting, yet uses every available square inch of buildable area allowed by law. The house was designed for a family of five. The upper level features a beachfront master suite, and each child has their own, uniquely styled “ship’s cabin”. The lower level includes a guest room / office, lounge, elevated hot tub area, and a large living / dining / kitchen space. All of this fits within a compact 2500 square foot envelope.

A-to-Z House in San Francisco, California by SAW // Spiegel Aihara Workshop

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The A-to-Z House by SAW // Spiegel Aihara Workshop wins a 2017 Architecture Award from the San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIASF).

The A-to-Z House proposes an alternative to conventional approaches for expanding an outmoded San Francisco home. Perched on a hillside in Golden Gate Heights, a modest single story 1934 developer vernacular structure had limited space and failed to take advantage of expansive views of Sutro Tower, Golden Gate Park, Sausalito, and the Bay. But rather than replacing or merely attaching to the existing structure, the A-to-Z strategy seizes upon the existing forms – scaling, repeating, and manipulating found objects into a contextual collection of structures comprising a dynamic home immersed in its surroundings.

Berkshire Mountain House in Alfred, Massachusetts by Tsao & McKown Architects

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

Article source: Tsao & McKown Architects

Nestled into the tree line at the top of a gentle rise, the house folds and unfolds to take advantage of sweeping panoramic views, and wraps upon itself to form an intimate courtyard against the forest’s edge.

The building is conceived as movement through a Fibonacci spiral. The resulting plan allows a graceful progression through the rooms, spiraling up to the highest point, a cozy aerie. The architecture considers the qualities of the light and views throughout the day and seasons, and offers optimal arrangements for different experiences, from breakfast, to midday recreation, to star-gazing from bed.
