Urban Living XXL in Boston, Massachusetts in Ruhl Walker Architects

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

This Boston loft – nearly 5,000 SF with 18-foot high ceilings – presented a number of amazing opportunities and more than a few challenges.  Chief among the opportunities was amplifying the immensity of the central living space – one of the largest in the city – while making an understandable and livable family house.  Two monolithic organizing walls and a floating ceiling plane anchor the space and orient the occupant without disturbing its vastness or disrupting sightlines.

eBay House in Southborough, MA by Ruhl Walker Architects

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

This husband and wife assumed they would never be able to afford the modern house of their dreams, but one day they discovered a surprisingly affordable lot and decided to see if they could do the impossible.  Many considered the heavily wooded lot ‘unbuildable’ because it was squeezed behind five suburban McMansions, it was dotted with granite outcroppings, and its irregular shape made it hard to imagine a conventional house; but the lot’s perceived ‘unbuildability’ made it affordable, and a small clearing at one end beckoned to the clients.

First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ in Rochester, Michigan by Constantine George Pappas AIA designed using AutoCAD

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Article source: Constantine George Pappas AIA

This project consists of a new 375 seat sanctuary addition with associated  lower level community spaces. The total size of the new addition is 14,000 sq.ft.,  7000 sq.ft. each floor. The concept is based on the cross sectional articulation of a box,  and how to manipulate light into the interior of the worship space. The box, or church is divided into a series of tiers and clerestories. The first, representing the support area and  seating of the Church. The second tier represents the Chancel or religious activity area of the Church. The third tier, created above the pipe organ platform, allows northern light to spill onto the pipe organ and Chancel area. Each tier is structurally detailed to strengthen its space below.

Article source: Margulies Perruzzi Architects

DESIGN CHALLENGE

Fallon Clinic is a large multi-specialty medical group practice located throughout Central Massachusetts. After designing multiple facilities for Fallon, Margulies Perruzzi Architects was tasked to design a pilot “medical home” family practice for Fallon Clinic in Leominster. The term “medical home” refers to an innovative healthcare delivery method that provides a team of healthcare professionals, rather than one doctor, who offer a wide range of services with four main functions: educate, monitor, guide and reach out. Efficiency and flexibility of both space and healthcare professionals are crucial.

Ottmers Residence in rural Gillespie County, Texas by Vincent Snyder Architects

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Article source: Vincent Snyder Architects

Ottmers House is a 2,200 sq-ft contemporary home located on an ancestral family ranch in the Texas Hill Country, near Fredericksburg. In keeping with ranching tradition, a young couple with two children of modest means expressed their desire to construct their own home. The design started from the reuse of a foundation slab located adjacent to an existing vernacular structure. Following ranching tradition, work on the home is envisioned as a continuous process based on resource availability rather than a finalized object. For this reason, standardized wood frame construction was interwoven within a series of heavier timber members to facilitate ease of client labor and modification.
