Hirschkron/Camacho in East Village, New York by Manifold Architecture Studio

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Article source: Manifold Architecture Studio

The Hirschkron/Camacho apartment is uniquely located in the East Village within a converted synagogue, the former Beth Hamedrash Hagadol Anshe Ungarn. The clients, although enamored with the apartments history and distinct spatial qualities, were at odds with the outdated 80s conversion, odd angles and inefficient layout.

Surefoot Beaver Creek in Colorado by The Los Angeles Design Group, LLC

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Article source: The Los Angeles Design Group, LLC

Beaver Creek is the seventh in a series of stores designed by The LADG for Surefoot. Each store is unique, specifically designed for the space and the demands of the local market.  At Beaver Creek, the design concept of the store is not unlike the construction of a ski-boot: it’s an efficient, comfortable center, surrounded by a very complex and performance-driven shell. In the middle of the store there are several custom-fabricated pieces of furniture that house Surefoot’s custom fitting process. The furniture is designed to be unobtrusive and helpful – kind of like an ergonomic butler to the fitting process. Fittings are exacting, and customers can spend hours working with Surefoot staff to get the boot just right. Subtle angles in the furniture help position customers’ feet and a series of platforms bring boots up to exactly the right height for operators to work on them.

Windswept in San Francisco, California by Charles Sowers Studios

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Charles Sowers Studios

Windswept consists of 612 freely rotating wind direction indicators mounted parallel to the wall creating an architectural scale instrument for observing the complex interaction between wind and the building. The wind arrows serve as discrete data points indicating the direction of local flow within the larger phenomenon. Wind gusts, rippling and swirling through the sculpture, visually reveal the complex and ever-changing ways the wind interacts with the building and the environment.

Open house in Hollywood Hills, California by XTEN Architecture

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: XTEN Architecture

The Openhouse is embedded into a narrow and sharply sloping property in the Hollywood Hills, a challenging site that led to the creation of a house that is both integrated into the landscape and open to the city below. Retaining walls are configured to extend the first floor living level into the hillside and to create a garden terrace for the second level. Steel beams set into the retaining walls perpendicular to the hillside are cantilevered off structural shear walls at the front of the site. Lateral steel clear spans fifty feet between these beams creating a double cantilever at the leading edge of the house and allowing for uninterrupted views over Los Angeles. Front, side and rear elevations of the house slide open to erase all boundaries between indoors and out and connect the spaces to gardens on both levels.

Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah by Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Brooks + Scarpa has released their proposal for the roughly 22,000 square foot addition to the existing 12,000 square foot 1929 historic Kimball Art Center located in the heart of downtown Park City at the corner of Main Street and Heber Ave.

The design concept for the new Kimball Art Center is to perceptually bring the mesmerizing and seemingly endless deep blue Park City sky directly into the space of the city. Despite the time of year or weather conditions, the sky always seems to quickly return to its infinite and hypnotic clarity, with rarely a cloud in the sky. It provokes a kind of indelible wonder; a dreamlike state of mind that engages the viewer, heightens their sense of awareness, and brings a sense of vitality to the place. The Kimball “Cloud” delivers a new experience and expands art into the broader Park City community, creating a new social space for the 21st century.

National Olympic Committee House in Tbilisi, Georgia by Architects of Invention

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Article source: Architects of Invention

This work represents the idea of dynamics in sport with the abstract compositions of the staircase and the reception table. The first object you encounter is the introverted desk with its never-ending fissure, and then you meet the extroverted staircase – like the open path to Olympus, where the summit meets its own reflection, inferring that striving never ends, that there is no limit to human achievement.

Glow 2010 – Luminous Passage in Santa Monica, California by Predock Frane Architects

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

Article source: Predock Frane Architects

For the 2010 GLOW we are proposing a linear spatial construction that links the City to the Ocean. Working with the site of the Bay Street boardwalk, we intend to make visible the connection across the sand to the edge of the ocean. This is a physical “land bridge” connecting the urban landscape of Santa Monica to the edge of the water, but also a conceptual leap that transitions from the “logics” that define the city to the those of the ocean. Taking the vertical nature of the city and merging it with the horizontal impulses of the pacific, we are proposing a visceral and intense space.

dpHUE Concept Store in Maple Grove, Minnesota by Julie Snow Architects

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

Article source: Julie Snow Architects

dpHUE offers a fresh new brand, a new product and the importance of the customer experience. Their first retail location needed an architectural space to support their company’s mission. Customer experience was of the utmost importance and guided all design decisions from concept through completion. Customer consultation, product display, point of sale and customer demonstration areas were all critical programmatic components.  While the design was created to the specifics of this store location, the intent from the beginning was that this would be easily adapted when the company opened other locations. This adaptability of the design for future stores was addressed by defining several key components within the space that could be easily transferred to other spaces.
