Downtown LA Hotel in Los Angeles, California by XTEN Architecture

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Article source: XTEN Architecture

This new 65,000sf hotel is conceived as a monolithic concrete structure, carved by a system of slots and slices that bring light, air and views deep into the building.

The site is an infill parcel in downtown Los Angeles which measures just 50×150 feet. The hotel is freestanding, surrounded on all sides by alleys and streets. This allows for slots to be cut into the façade, which contrast with and dematerialize the otherwise monolithic quality of the building.

Wissioming2 in Bethesda, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney Architect

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Article source: Robert M. Gurney Architect

Located in Glen Echo, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC this new house is sited on a sloping, wooded lot with distant views of the Potomac River.  The house is positioned to preserve a majority of mature trees and is oriented toward the river views and south facing slope. The house is organized into two volumes connected with glass bridges that span a reflecting pool which separates the volumes.  Secondary volumes intersect and overlap the two larger structures rendering the composition more dynamic.  Material changes in the various elements intensify the relationships.  Expanses of glass open to a terrace organized around a swimming pool with two “infinity” edges reinforcing the connectivity to the wooded landscape.

Residential Loft in Boston, Massachusetts by The Galante Architecture Studio

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

The goal of this project was to divide the space into a definitive function, yet retain the feeling of an open plan loft. A series of “L” shaped bars were inserted to organize the space. Visual unity is maintained by reducing form and color to bare essentials, and breaking this mold only when required by program. Continuous light maple built in cabinets provide a constant rhythm throughout the loft. Darker idiosyncratic cabinets are inserted into this baseline to provide definition.

Squam Lake Vacation House in Center Harbor, New Hampshire by The Galante Architecture Studio

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

The program of this project is set on a lake front site with requirements for a light, transparent building in an inhospitable winter climate. Opening the house to the lake was of prime consideration to the client, as this was seen as the “front of house.” The entry sequence was understood as “back of house”. Inside becomes a surrogate outside. inherent in a lake front site is a notion that public and private do not follow traditional rules.
