Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Article source: Mullen Heller Architecture

Located in Albuquerque’s historic Sawmill District, known for its eclectic mix of industrial, manufacturing and residential uses, the new warehouse for Chaparral Electric is situated on the property between their existing offices and a residence use. The owner’s goal was to accommodate their storage needs and provide a large mezzanine-level conference room while pushing the limit on “what a warehouse” traditionally looks like.

The East Village in Austin, Texas by Bercy Chen Studio LP

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Article source: Bercy Chen Studio LP

Located in the Revitalization District of East 11th Street, this vertical mixed-use project has become a unique focal point in a quickly growing neighborhood. The project includes 11 retail stores and offices, 20 residential condominiums of which 20% are affordable housing, and roof top decks accessible by all residents. The unique solar screen on the south and west facades is just one of the many aspects of the design that contributes to the 3?Star Green Building Rating. The East Village is also one of the City of Austin’s S.M.A.R.T. (Safe, Mixed-Income, Accessible, Reasonably Priced, Transit Oriented) Housing developments. The East 11th Street neighborhood in Austin has seen considerable change since 2001. Once a largely ignored portion of Austin, E. 11th Street is now home to many different retail shops, restaurants, offices, and cultural groups. The East Village seeks to capture this diversity by developing a dynamic and creative environment for its residents, combining retail shops and small commercial offices with residential units on the upper floors. On the fourth floor are two green roofs; each with a wonderful view of downtown.

Thompson Studios – A Soho Gem With A WSDG Polish in Thompson St., NYC by Walters-Storyk Design Group (designed using Autodesk Revit)

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

Article source: Walters-Storyk Design Group

NEW YORK: A two-year search for the ideal NYC location led producer/engineer Louis Benedetti to a former bank building on one of Soho’s chicest streets.  A collaboration with a NY contractor resulted in a handsome, ingeniously designed studio with, when the dust settled, unanticipated isolation issues. A call to the Walters-Storyk Design Group provided invaluable design recommendations, which culminated in Thompson Studios the realization of a dream, and the introduction of a perfectly tuned and leak free recording option for local and international artists.
