Brooks Avenue House in Venice, California by bricault design

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Article source: bricault design

The clients for this project needed more space to accommodate the needs of a growing family, but they were reluctant to leave their location in Venice – one of the few walkable neighborhoods in Los Angeles.  The solution was to maintain and remodel their existing 2000 square foot home, while creating a 1700 square foot addition and courtyard on the rear lane side.

An addition to a house Martin Holub Architects designed 15 years ago (1997) on a wooded hilltop in the Hudson Valey, New York. At the time, we had no idea that we had ever be asked to design an addition to that house. Still because of the strong geometry of the original house, the addition had, practically, designed itself.

This project was designed for a San Francisco couple with six children – with ages ranging from high school to college. The property is located inland from the beach town of Aptos, California in the Santa Cruz Mountains, near the city of Santa Cruz.  The 20-acre site has ocean and mountain views and is about five miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. The family desired a setting that would be casual and rustic, and that would incorporate sustainable features to minimize the home’s carbon footprint. Diverse activities were part of the design program, including; entertaining, cooking, tanning, swimming, archery, horseshoes, gardening, and wood-splitting.

Tsujita La in Los Angeles, California by SWeeT co.,ltd

I put 25000 of wooden sticks, which was shaped like drum stick on the ceiling. In order to increase a reality of clouds, I calculate the focal length between eye line and wooden sticks and use that length for the stick length. Also I made difference on the distance between stick each other so that to make a stereoscopic effect to wooden cloud.

Jacobson Carriage House in Mineral, Virginia by Robert Gurney Architect

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Article source: Robert Gurney Architect

As the first phase of a client’s planned move to Lake Anna, Virginia, this guest house and garage becomes the starting point for further development of the site.  Its design sets a precedent of economy thru selection of material and simple methods of construction.  These methods also allowed the client to construct the building himself and become familiar with each material and the most sensible way to use it providing for minimal future maintenance.  These materials, such as concrete block and rusted corrugated metal siding, also ground the building with their timeless sensibilities and embed it to the site.

1100 First Street in Washington, D.C. by Krueck & Sexton Architects

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Article source: Krueck & Sexton Architects

Krueck + Sexton’s architectural design vision for 1100 First Street re-defines the expectations of the speculative office building in Washington, D.C. Organized as two distinct 350,000 square foot blocks on a 1.7 acre site, the forms of this glass-clad building pair are subtly manipulated to emphasize verticality and activate a dynamic courtyard at the center of the complex. This space brings natural light deep into the site and identifies the building’s main entry.
