Sycamore House in Los Angeles, California by Aaron Neubert Architects

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Aaron Neubert Architects

The design direction for an 800 sf master suite addition was determined by the peninsular shape of the property and the desire to respect the 1950’s post & beam house. The addition’s orientation emerged as the negotiation between the existing house, the sloping site, and a beloved sycamore tree.

New High-tech Classroom Building in Decatur, Georgia by Lord Aeck & Sargent

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: Lord Aeck & Sargent

A serendipitous alignment of program, a compatible historic structure and creativity, have resulted in an environmentally sensitive, high-tech classroom building that is transforming the teaching and learning experience – along with the entire campus – at Columbia Theological Seminary.

The $8.2 million building, named the Vernon S. Broyles Jr. Leadership Center, connects a 20,500-square-foot repurposed historic dormitory built in 1932 with 16,000 square feet of new construction to create what is now the seminary’s primary classroom building and outdoor learning/gathering space. The structure – contemporary yet sensitive to the historic collegiate gothic architecture of the seminary’s other buildings – has become a focal point that anchors a previously nondescript but public corner of the campus.

Brockman Hall for Physics at Rice University, Houston, Texas by The Office of James Burnett

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: OJB

The Brockman Hall for Physics is a 111,000 SF facility housing classrooms, laboratory space, lecture halls and administrative offices for the Physics Department as well as physicists from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rice University in Houston, Texas. Driven by Rice University’s belief that some of the most important moments on campus are moments of informal discussion and debate outside of the classroom, the design of the building and landscape seeks to provide a multitude of spaces for lively and inspiring conversation.

The building and landscape reinforce the existing grid of the campus. Dramatic lighting accentuates these formal elements

Buchter Retreat in Orcas Island, Washington by David Coleman Architecture

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Article source: David Coleman Architecture

Program: A 2000 square foot vacation retreat located on a 15 acre wooded site littered with  glacial ledge in Washington’s San Juan islands to accommodate two sisters and their spouses.
Design: Our clients had long envisioned developing a cluster of buildings on the site, carefully  sited to preserve the rugged, natural landscape. In keeping with this vision, we endeavored to  create a modern rendition of the “summer camp,” complete with sleeping pavilions, a great room  and covered porches, all inspired by the platform tents and national park lodges of the late 19th  century.

The Shed in Missouri by Hufft Projects

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Article source: Hufft Projects

Serving as a counterpoint to the Curved House, the Shed is located on a repurposed Cul-de-sac adjacent to the residence. The construction method is an exercise in celebrating the logic and clarity of prefabrication. Conceived as a kit of parts, the elegant building’s steel frame combines modular wall components, roof trusses, and battens, all of which were assembled on site and clad with a rain-screen of White Oak taken from the property.

Hilltop House in Broomfield, Colorado by Studio H:T

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Article source: Studio H:T

This hilltop house is located at the highest elevation in Broomfield county. Inverted roof trusses are used to lessen the impact of scale from the east while opening up to the west to invite the endless views of the entire front range. The house is an L-shaped ranch with a bridge to the master suite pod and stone water feature entry. The L is divided into two zones of public and private space and has an observation / lounge room sits above the entry. A lap pool outbuilding helps to define the private courtyard created by the house and opens onto it with two large aluminum and glass garage doors.

Fold House in Chilmark, Massachusetts by The Galante Architecture Studio

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

The fold house is a study in concrete panel construction. One of the full scale prototypes created for the Boston Architecture College exhibition was a concrete panel wall with a tessellated surface. Vertical concrete panels were hinged one to the other establishing the folded geometric pattern. The underlying idea for this prototype is the driving force behind the Fold House. Here, concrete panels hinge upon one another to form a compressed surface.
