The Barn House in Diamond Point, New York by Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Article source: Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

The idea of working with repeated motives of a barn gable is inspired by the American painters Charles Sheeler and Andrew Wyeth. Sculptural monoliths of barns are orientated according to the sloping landscapes giving interesting compositions where many volumes in various directions can be seen as a layered additive structure.

Urby Staten Island in New York by Concrete

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Article source: Concrete

Smart use of space

All Urby apartments feel larger than they are as a result of smart use of the available space. Despite being compact, the units are built with an optimal flow and spatial balance in mind. Sliding doors between connecting spaces let residents fully open up the apartment and experience its full size and sense of space. All apartments boast windows across the full width of the units. Combined with a straightforward design and use of light colours, the large windows bring daylight and a sense of spaciousness deep into the apartments, while at the same time offering panoramic views.

Hilgard Garden in Berkeley, California by Mary Barensfeld Architecture

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Article source: Mary Barensfeld Architecture

Hilgard Garden aims to provide the owners with an extended outdoor living space; a garden room.  Due to the steeply sloping site, accessibility to an upper seating area requires navigating a considerable elevation change.   To avoid taking up a large swathe of the smaller backyard square footage with a conventional stair, a ramping meandering path through aromatic groundcover and the outstretched limbs of sculptural Japanese maples was selected as a more experiential garden path.

GMP – Yorba Linda Residence in California by Domaen

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Article source: Domaen

The project hugs a difficult hillside that is in most part subject to a future landslide and therefore in large parts unbuildable. The current proposal takes advantage of an existing berm to anchor the second story with all the private areas so that the building bridges as a quasi-landform over the entrance. The building is Y-shaped to accommodate a private courtyard and maximize the buildable area of the lot.
