Lujan House in Ocean View, Delaware by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Modest h­ouses on small lots comprise the Quillen’s Point neighborhood, adjacent to the Chesapeake Bay in Ocean View, Delaware.  An eclectic mix of houses, gravel roads ending at the bay and wooded lots provide a nostalgic, informal setting for this new house.  The project site is near the end of Burbage Lane, the second lot from the bay with expectations that the adjacent waterfront lot will eventually be developed. ­­

House Bar / Cave Bar in Manhattan, New York by Barker Freeman Design Office (designed with Generative Components and Maxwell)

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

With these two proposals for a bar in the East Village in Manhattan, we employed a striking silhouette on the façade to bring presence to the space on the street. With House Bar, we used painted, perforated MDF panels to continue the house profile on the interior, which terminates in a DJ booth at the end of the room. Lighting filters through the perforations to provide ambient illumination.

St. Clare’s Parish Center/Early Childhood Development Center in Staten Island, New York by Studio 16 Architecture PLLC collaboration with Stephen Perrella

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: Studio 16 Architecture PLLC collaboration with Stephen Perrella, AIA

CONTEXT

A complex of design strategies configures the solution for the Preschool at St.Clare’s. The intent was to establish a sense of openness and free play for a program involving the guidance and education of young children. The proposed architecture endeavors to mediate the imposition of authority over developing youth by calling into question the role that architecture plays in structuring a learning environment. The site of the renovation is within an existing and highly active gymnasium on a church campus. The preschool is situated adjacent to the gymnasium within the same structure.

Planted Environment in Chicago, Illinois by STUDIO IDE

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: STUDIO IDE

Designed by Vladimir Radutny and Paul Tebben of STUDIO IDE, this ground level space inscribes the functions of living, entertaining and yoga into a traditional three story suburban home.  The Clients, having lived and traveled in the eastern world, aspired to transplant the character of Southeast Asian living into their existing home.  Rather than forcing the marriage between these two dissimilar architectural languages, the choice to disconnect each from the other created a world within a world.

Folsom Street Residential Laboratory in San Francisco, California by Todd Verwers Architects

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Article source: Todd Verwers Architects

This urban loft space for a single man occupies the entire top floor of a 1920’s concrete frame structure in San Francisco’s Soma neighborhood.  The space, essentially a “toolbox” for the owner’s urban lifestyle, is unique in its adaptation of commercial and institutional materials and components to residential functions.  Off the shelf laboratory cabinet modules form the kitchen, a customized computer floor forms the sleeping platform, and a precision aluminum framing system creates the enclosure and adaptable framework for an “electronics laboratory”.  In some cases, these modular components were customized to specific client requirements.
