Stinson Beach House in California by WA design

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Article source: WA design

Just north of San Francisco is the largely suburban and rural County of Marin. The bay side has been developed with upscale suburbs, but with zoning rules the west side, which borders the Pacific Ocean, has remained an agricultural and rural preserve. The Marin coastline is one of green rolling hills that slope down to the rugged palisades that meet the Pacific.

Urban Food Production in Chicago, Illinois by Atelier Zündel & Cristea

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Zündel & Cristea

GLOBAL OVERVIEW

The socio-cultural development of the past century has compromised the notion of “progress”. Deforestation, topsoil depletion, excesses of industrial and financial globalisation, biodiversity loss and incessant pressures of population growth on the planet’s limited resources have placed the human being in a condition of rupture with his ecological role as species.

Article source: Michael Maltzan Architecture, Inc.

North of Los Angeles at the edge of Angeles National Forest, the residence is sited on 6 acres originally planned as a Richard Neutra designed development. Although three pads were cleared, only one home was built. The current owners, who own the original Neutra home, have developed a desert garden on one of the clearings. The new home sits on the last clearing.

Poetry Foundation in Chicago, Illinois by John Ronan Architects

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: John Ronan Architects

The Poetry Foundation is comprised of a building in dialogue with a garden created through erosion of an implied volume as described by the L-shaped property boundary. The garden interlocks with the building and is conceived as another “room,” part of the building’s slowly-unfolding spatial sequence revealed space by space, not unlike a poem is revealed line by line.

The Standard in Manhattan, New York City by Ennead Architects

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: Ennead Architects

Located in Manhattan’s Hudson riverfront Meatpacking District, the hotel responds to its context through contrast: sculptural piers, whose forms clearly separate the building from the orthogonal street grid, raise the building fifty-seven feet off the street, and allow the horizontally-scaled industrial landscape to pass beneath it and natural light to penetrate to the street.

DC Boogie-Woogie in Washington, D.C. by Suzane Reatig Architecture

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: Suzane Reatig Architecture

The tight site, located across from the Mt. Vernon Square metro, originally housed six apartments for the elderly. The not-for-profit client wanted to replace the dilapidated building with a new three-story apartment building with an elevator. Before construction began, the owner found suitable replacement housing for the elderly tenants, and decided to offer the units to all. The change in program was an opportunity for the addition of mezzanines to the upper three units.

Water House in Coastal Connecticut by Newick Architects

Article source: Newick Architects

Located on an extraordinary coastal Connecticut site, this house sits at the edge of Long Island Sound. A four bedroom, simple plan, 1950’s ranch existed on the site when the project began. Its proximity to the water would not have been replicable if not for the existing condition. A sixty foot long window wall, eight feet high now offers an unobstructed view of the Sound. The colors and materials of the interior range from grey to white and have surface reflectivity that ranges from matte to reflective.
