Chesapeake Car Park One in Oklahoma City by Elliott + Associates Architects

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Article source: Elliott + Associates Architects

Exterior Appearance

The exterior of the building features staggered metal panels which function to screen views of the vehicles and provide airflow to qualify the building as an open parking structure. Internal ramps and screening vehicles from view is visually harmonious with the adjacent structures. The metal panels match details on the adjoining office building.  Brise soleil on the west side of the garage visually connects the adjoining office building. Horizontal panels vary in size, with 6” slats at ground level for human scale, and change to 1’, 2’ and 4’ widths as they rotate around the façade and add texture. There is no exterior lighting on the building. Internal lighting glows between horizontal panels.

High Meadow Dwellings at Fallingwater in Pennsylvania by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Article source: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson 

Located on a historic farm adjacent to Frank Lloyd Wright’s renowned Fallingwater residence, High Meadow serves as home base for students of Fallingwater Institute’s summer residency programs in architecture, art, and design.

Positioned between forest and field, four modest dwellings with simple wood interiors and framed vistas of the surrounding hilltops rest lightly above ground on a network of nimble steel columns and delicate tectonics, imparting minimal disturbance to the site. An angled shroud at the end of each unit catches cool breezes rising up from the valley floor below and shields the naturally ventilated rooms from the summer sun. Screened entry doors allow for additional airflow and connect the units to a covered walkway.

Oak Pass House in Beverly Hills, California by Walker Workshop

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The Oak Pass Main House sits atop a 3.5-acre ridge site with panoramic canyon views. The property’s topography and landscape, which most notably include over 130 protected Coast Live Oak Trees, were the primary drivers for the house’s design. In order to showcase and amplify the site’s inherent beauty, the house’s mass is buried into the hillside, with only a one-story pavilion above grade as it unfolds along the ridge.

PLICO at the Flatiron in Oklahoma City by Elliott + Associates Architects

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Article source: Elliott + Associates Architects

Built in 1924 by C.F. Meadors and originally the Como Hotel, this historic blond brick flatiron stood vacant and boarded up for 27 years.  We have been waiting for 20 years for the opportunity to bring this corner to its full potential.  We believe this corner should be the site of an enduring building, a lantern at the east gateway to downtown Oklahoma City.

The project includes the renovation of the two-level flatiron building and the construction of a modern, yet complimentary rooftop addition.

RIVERSPORT Rapids: 

A state-of-the-art facility, RIVERSPORT Rapids is one of only four in the world. It was designed by the same team that developed the U.K.’s Lee Valley White Water Centre for the 2012 London Olympics and is similar to North Carolina’s U.S. National Whitewater Center.

Nightingale Decor in Los Angeles, California by Erika Winters Design

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: Erika Winters Design 

The house was built at the foot of a hill and —to make the most of the lot—concrete piling was done to have the necessary structure to meet the program required by the clients. It is a two-storey house with a flat roof and elevator that also has an attractive hill where herbal and fruit gardening was developed. It’s like a boat on the sky by the way it stands out from the piles and integrates into its environment.

Slack’s new NYC headquarters in USA by Snøhetta

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Article source: Snøhetta 

Slack is the fastest-growing workplace software in the world. With over 6 million active weekly users, the intra-office messaging system is revolutionizing the way teams communicate around the globe. For the startup’s New York City headquarters, Snøhetta retrofitted a 12,000 SF space on the top floor of an 1880’s landmarked building in Lower Manhattan’s NoHo/East Village neighborhood to provide a versatile, sunlight-filled office. The design of each of Slack’s offices around the world aims to integrate elements of their local context, and Snøhetta’s design for Slack’s new NYC space is inspired by the city’s distinctive urban courtyards. Drawing inspiration from interior parkscapes like Paley Park, bamboo plants provide natural privacy screens and energize the space with greenery. Four existing skylights with enlarged, splayed ceilings dramatically increase the incidence of natural daylight deep into the space and the pocket courtyards beneath them.
