Brahler Residence in Bay Village, Ohio by robert maschke ARCHITECTS

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: robert maschke ARCHITECTS inc.

Architecture for residential additions is often characterized by two distinct approaches: imitate the style of the home so the addition is indistinguishable or create something clearly new and different. Neither mimicry nor novelty would suffice for the expansion of the Brahler Residence; the unique qualities of the site and a desire to integrate with the existing architecture called for a hybrid strategy.

Small House in Massachusetts by Maryann Thompson Architects

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Article source: Maryann Thompson Architects

Located in Western Massachusetts, the site is a 10-acre sliver of land that runs down an eastern mountain slope of large red oak and birch trees. To preserve and inhabit this forested landscape, the house nestles into its wooded setting with views through the long trunks of downslope trees. The program requirements were to create a simple, modest-sized, 750sf two-bedroom house with the feel of a one-room cabin.

Cascading Creek House in Texas by Bercy Chen Studio LP

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Article source: Bercy Chen Studio LP

Cascading Creek House was conceived less as a house and more as an extension and outgrowth of the limestone and aquifers of Central Texas. The primary formal gesture of the project inserts two long native limestone walls to the sloping site, serving as spines for the public wing and private wing of the house. The walls and the wings they delineate shelter a domesticated landscape that serves as an extended living space oriented towards the creek below and protected from the torrents of water draining from the street above during sudden downpours characteristic of the area. The siting of the boundary walls and building elements was informed by the presence and preservation of three mature native oaks.

Brooklyn Night Bazaar 2011 in Williamsburg, NY by JDS Architects

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: JDS Architects

Brooklyn Night Bazaar, a recurring nighttime market readies for the holidays with an extravagant showcase for independent artists, crafters, chefs, designers, and musicians in a 40,000 sq foot warehouse with 30-foot ceilings on the waterfront. Founder and Brooklynite Aaron Broudo was inspired by the Southeast Asian night markets — where a manic energy infuses with music as locals and tourists sample dishes and bargain for objects. Brooklyn’s version is a mega-pop-up platform that commingles indie music, handmade zines, homegrown jams, projected art videos and giant helium balloons.

Loom 2one-Six in Aspen, Colorado by 1 Friday Design Collaborative

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Article source: 1 Friday Design Collaborative

What began as a kitchen remodel within a historic Aspen mining cottage grew to involve a series of artist studio studies for the backyard of the quaint Hyman Avenue residence known as the Pink House. Two very unique directions were initially investigated in direct response to budget concerns and alternate programmatic directions.  Incorporating LEED inspired solutions to take advantage of solar paths and materials with high performance returns was a priority.  For example, the open latticed loft design of the interior space in addition to the window sizing and placements assists in creating a natural heating and cooling feature by allowing the circulation patterns to draft from lower to upper levels accordingly.

Waterfront Research Center in Seattle, Washington by SABArchitects

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Article source: SABArchitects

The project building was built in 1926 as a processing facility for the Washington Cooperative Egg and Poultry Association.  After a series of additions and renovations, the building was converted in 1983 to biotechnology laboratories and offices.  When the current owners acquired the building in 2006, it no longer met market standards for top quality lab or office space.  The client’s charge to the design team was to transform the tired building into a world class life science facility that celebrated its Elliott Bay waterfront setting.
