Nevis Pool and Garden Pavilion in Washington, DC by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Located in a neighborhood bordering Washington, DC, this suburban site has the advantage of being located adjacent to woodlands.  A contemporary house surrounded by mature trees and manicured gardens anchors the site.  A new swimming pool, stone walls, and terraces located behind the existing house organize the rear yard and establishes a dialogue between the existing house and a new pavilion.  New paths, trees and structured plantings reinforce the geometry.

Jacob’s Ladder in Brooklyn, New York by BanG studio

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Article source: BanG studio

In conjunction with their participation in American Express’ Partners in Preservation program, Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn has commissioned BanG studio to design, fabricate, and erect an art installation inside the synagogue’s main sanctuary. The given theme of the piece is Jacob’s Ladder reflecting the synagogue’s special connection to the story.
In Genesis, Jacob stops for the night en route from the house of his father, Isaac to Paddan-aram. He dreams of a ladder set upon the earth and stretching to heaven. In his dream, angels ascend and descend the ladder. God appears to Jacob promising the land on which he sleeps to him and his descendants. When Jacob awakens he realizes that, “surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.”

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.
