LORD & TAYLOR Ridge Hill in New York by Giorgio Borruso Design

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: Giorgio Borruso Design

LEGACY AND INNOVATION

Lord & Taylor, founded in 1826, is the oldest specialty department store chain in the country. They built the first suburban department stores, which became models for a new retail typology. In 1953, Lord & Taylor presented an award for independent thinking to Albert Einstein for his “nonconformity” in scientific matters. The company has an especially interesting story to tell in terms of both its history and its connection to high-level architectural design in its department stores. The projects developed under the leadership of Dorothy Shaver with Raymond Loewy provide a rich catalogue of inspiration. The spatial and formal fluidity in these early works was something we looked to rediscover, in particular, for the store in Ridge Hill, both in terms of the building’s relationship to its context as well as the experience of the public.

As the first new L&T store since 2001, our goal was to realize a project that honors the legacy of an iconic and historic partnership in design, both in terms of its architectural and urban presence (evolving the “big box” store) and its technological and design creativity.

Tacoma Art Museum Haub Galleries in Washington by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig 

In 2012 the Tacoma Art Museum received a gift of Western art, creating an opportunity to feature two unique collections – Western art and their existing contemporary art collections–together in one building. The design brief for the new addition and remodel to house the collections was: 1) better announce the museum to the community; 2) design a new wing that is sympathetic to its surrounding historic context; 3) create a public living room that offers transparency to the street, and; 4) resolve an overly complex and obscured entry sequence.

Friday, April 7th, 2017

Article source: whipple russell architects

Our client, who is from the sports world, wanted an open-plan house for entertaining but also a photography studio and a gallery space suitable for hanging his large art projects. Working with Barry Chase of CMF Homebuilders and Linda Dahan of Highfire Interior Design, the project began with an empty hilltop lot but required a 10-foot high retaining wall to create a sturdy level pad for building.

Paperless Post’s Headquarters in New York City by +ADD

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Article source: +ADD 

The Global Headquarters located in New York City. Located in the historical twin gothic towers that compose Trinity Centre located  in the vibrant and ever changing Financial District. The new space will house 250 employees. Having mainly northern light to work  with we selected a bright pallet including natural ash wood, the company’s pallet of black and white plus brushed brass accents  in light fixtures and hardware elements to accomplish a strong interior space. We allocated resources to where they were most  needed, including a welcoming lobby/lounge space that portrays the company’s graphic mastery into architectural elements using  ash wood louvered panels and glass as the main characters.

Spring Street Salt Shed in New York by Dattner Architects

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: Dattner Architects

Located at the terminus of Canal Street at the Hudson River, the Salt Shed’s crystalline, faceted planes enliven this highly visible structure. The cast-in-place concrete structure tapers toward the bottom—creating more pedestrian space—and rises from a glazed moat that will be illuminated at night. The Salt Shed’s solid, crystalline surface acts as a counterpoint to the diaphanous, scrim-like façade of the Manhattan 1/2/5 Garage, directly across Spring Street to the north. Rising nearly 70 feet, the shed houses 5,000 tons of salt and has already become an iconic landmark at this important intersection.

Rock Creek House in Washington D.C. by NADAAA

Article source: NADAAA 

The Rock Creek House is an adaptive re-use project of a 1920’s brick structure that was originally composed of two floors, with a mechanical basement and attic. This adaptation leverages the robustness of the existing structure to capture the attic and basement to double the house’s size, while expanding its functions into the landscape.
