Flynn Residence in Paradise Valley, Arizona by Colab Studio, llc

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Article source: Colab Studio, llc

A single physician purchases a home because of the site’s amazing views. The house is somewhat “modern”, but contains several physical features the owner would rather weren’t there. The space does not flow well with each use separated by three main elements: a sunken bar; an entertainment center, and a large masonry fireplace. There is almost no connection between living spaces and the exterior patio. We begin by removing everything in the way, creating a more open space, better circulation, enhanced functions, and improved views. We provide a three-panel telescoping door to the patio. We add a new exterior patio, pool, and spa. A new exposed laterally bracing membrane in the living room, required to replace the fireplace’s structural function, is designed parametrically utilizing the Owner’s favorite image of a skin cell. She requests the interiors be minimal, clean, and white. We happily oblige.

Dihedral House in Boulder, CO by Arch11

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Article source: Arch11

Design strategy:

This modern house designed by Arch11 is a place where the domestic life of a young family weaves with the values of two professional athletes and the outdoors. Where this distinction may separate those roles, lines in this structure seeks to bind and integrate. Anchored on a downtown corner site, this Boulder, Colo. home has an all glass living room and Site-cast, board-formed concrete walls. The latter both moors the building to its site and provides thermal mass to control temperature swings.

The house is organized around crossing dihedral lines–one phenomenal and one tectonic—that shear the interior volumes.

Smart-Stell Residence in Durham, USA by Tonic Design + Tonic Construction

Article source: Tonic Design + Tonic Construction

The clients wanted a new house but not a new neighborhood. On one of their daily walks they found a 40-year-old structure for sale. The house, beyond repair, occupied a promising lot with a southeast exposure to a small lake. This gave the couple the idea to build their “home and vacation home at the same time, they said.

100 Norfolk Street in New York by ODA–Architecture P.C.

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Article source: ODA–Architecture P.C.

Located at the Lower east side Manhattan, one of the most significantly diverse areas of New York City, 100 Norfolk Street expresses unlimited potential and ambition hidden within its block. Peering above its small lot, the 12 story building is combining its mass from the surrounding properties to create a stepping volume which cantilevers over the adjacent low rise buildings like an inverted \”wedding cake\” or ziggurat. The unexpected massing, cladded in a glass curtain wall, reflects a paradoxical mid-block freestanding building offering striking views and strong interior light exposure for an array of residential spaces – a pendant above the city.

League of Shadows in Los Angeles, CA by P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Not a Pavilion

Our proposal aims to fully exploit what we recognize as the most fundamental aspect underlying the project: the temporal use of the pavilion as a large outdoor event space. Due to its lack of programming, The conventional graduation pavilion suffers immediately after its purpose has been met, transforming from a place of spectacle to an abandoned vessel. If another pavilion is to be built, the scale of the project demands that it should not exist for a single usage, rather, it should become an icon that attracts public events from the surrounding community. We believe that if executed correctly, the pavilion could potentially activate a node within the downtown area.
