Feathered Edge in Los Angeles, California by Ball-Nogues Studio

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Feathered Edgewas commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The project explores the convergence of digital technology and craft. It is one in a series of installations curated by Brooke Hodge and Alma Ruiz. Integrating complex digital computation, mechanization, and printing with traditional handcrafted production techniques, Feathered Edge explores our desire to alter a space with fluid architectural forms that require a minimal use of material while utilizing a new proprietary technique that yields the effect of three dimensional spatial constructs “printed” to resemble objects hovering in space.

Portions of the original floor plates are removed while new plates are inserted around a central void, extending beyond the existing roof plane.

Orange Grove in West Hollywood, California by BROOKS + SCARPA

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Article source: BROOKS + SCARPA

Located in a neighborhood characterized by traditional bungalow style single-family residences, Orange Grove is a new landmark for the City of West Hollywood.  The building is sensitively designed and compatible with the neighborhood, but differs in material palette and scale from its neighbors. Referencing architectural conventions of modernism rather than the pitched roof forms of traditional domesticity, the project presents a characteristic that is consistent with the eclectic and often unconventional demographic of West Hollywood.  Distinct from neighboring structures, the building creates a strong relationship to the street by virtue of its large amount of highly usable balcony area in the front façade.

Located in Oakland, California, on a down-sloping site high above the San Francisco Bay, this home was designed to capture the magnificent vistas spanning from the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge. Floor-to-ceiling glass clears the way to unobstructed views. The predominantly south-southwest orientation required deep overhangs to cut down glare and soften the light quality in the home.

Article source: Benjamin Hall 

This projection came to life when Mr. Lavance and Benjamin Hall drank a few brew’s at a local pub. Lavance expressed his desire to shad his outdoor BBQ / kitchen. A few napkin sketches later and a real enthusiasm for raw materials that weather and age over time due to the brutal desert sun bearing upon. The high arcing paroblolic steel arcs crest to allow seating behind the counter on the east, while converging to the west to screen the Arizona summer sun.

An Organic, Bioclimatic House in Brittany, France by Patrice Bideau (designed using Vectorworks)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Patrice Bideau

This house on the shores of the Golfe du Morbihan, not far from AURAY, was built using organic architectural principals with a concentration of green energy components for maximum efficiency without resorting to technical sophistication. Completed at the beginning of this year, the house is situated in a region benefitting from oceanic climate conditions. The project was born of the owners’ desire to build a new house on their property in BADEN, incorporating a landscaped garden and a natural, chemical free swimming pool. These were created before construction began on the house in collaboration with a designer and a landscape gardener. The garden was designed to provide protection from Westerly winds with a vegetable garden to the East. A distinctive ambiance emerged from this new, natural environment surrounding the construction site.
