House on Fire Island in New York by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture (designed with Rhino, AutoCAD, and Photoshop)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Studio 27 Architecture

This is a summer beach house in the resort community of the Pines on Fire Island New York. The typology of the homes in the Pines is recognizable to anyone who has visited an East Coast Shoreline resort town. It is a builderdriven typology reflecting the pragmatism of the inhabitants of these coastal communities. Almost always the “good sense” pragmatism that allows these homes to be built affordably overtakes the inherent liveliness and natural spirit of the place and creates structures that are a bit dull. This project inserts some of the “spirit of the shore” into this “Yankee thriftiness” residential typology. Common detail and material remain, but the volume of the house is expressed as a skin, rather than as a box-like container. The skin keeps the heat in. Over time, the skin of woven cedar boards will assume the same patina as neighboring houses. Large windows are introduced to reveal a luxurious light interior.

E. Pearce Revisited in New York by workshopapd

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: workshopapd

Paying homage to the Baroque staircase attributed to 17th century English master Edmund Pearce (on exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art), workshop/apd fashioned a contemporary update for a modern Tribeca loft. Where Pearce incorporated oak leaves and pine cones, we digitized interlaced tree branches to create an element of modern-day beauty and craft in water-jet cut steel, bringing fancifulness and ornamentation back to architecture. Like its predecessor, the dramatic scroll – now in perforated steel – weaves the two floors together in a unique way.

Woodbury University Studio Building in Burbank, California by Rios Clementi Hale Studios

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: Rios Clementi Hale Studios

As the most visible building on the campus perimeter, the studio building mediates between the public view and private use of the campus. The south façade is a horizontal, large-scale gesture to passing motorists that curves and wraps around the building.  Varying patterns of concrete masonry units (CMU) compose this prominent wall.  The stacked blocks create a large-scale, changing pattern of subtle shadings as the sunlight moves across the south façade during the day.  Rios Clementi Hale Studios maintains continuity with the campus by using block colors and horizontal banding sympathetic to brick colors and patterning on existing buildings.  Functionally, the south façade filters sunlight and traffic sounds from the adjacent city streets and freeway.

Light Rhythm in New York by Workshop/apd

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Article source: Workshop/apd

This bright three-bedroom apartment in a 1960s high-rise near Lincoln Center was created from the combination of two smaller units. Since the owners frequently host visiting children and grandchildren, the emphasis was placed on family gathering spaces. A central zone highlighted by a change in the wood floor patterning and bounded by slatted wood dividing walls connects the far corners of the combined unit. In the kitchen, elongated glass tiles along the walls echo the horizontal banding of the slatted wood dividers.

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.
