Saturday, November 19th, 2016

Article source: Form4 Architecture 

Design

Hanover Page Mill, a LEED Platinum and net-zero electric building designed by Form4 Architecture for Hanover Page Mill Associates, is a powerful statement of synthesis between architectural form and energy performance. Located at Stanford Research Park in Palo Alto, CA, this spec office building was designed using affordable and practical building strategies to provide higher occupant comfort standards, while offering market-rate leasing options that make it competitive with traditional buildings. The building pays for its net zero features entirely though energy-cost savings.

West Hollywood Belltower in California by Tom Wiscombe Architecture

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: Tom Wiscombe Architecture 

The history of the American billboard tracks with the larger cultural and technological history of media distribution and aesthetic sensibilities. In the early 20th century, the billboard began as a large sign or three-dimensional icon, often calling attention to immediate building functions or domestic products. With the explosion of car culture and the film industry at mid-century, the billboard was transformed into something non-local, something representing filmic worlds, in wide-screen formats. Sunset Boulevard has played a distinct role in the evolution of the billboard, particularly in the 60’s and 70’s, with edgy content, protruding elements, and promotional appearances by music stars. The two-dimensionality of the billboard began to move towards three-dimensionality, simultaneously existing as sign and object. Our proposal aims to build on this legacy in a contemporary way, with an iconic object-billboard programmed with an unprecedented breadth of commercial, cultural, and interactive media content.

Sea Song in California by Form4 Architecture

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: Form4 Architecture

Sea Song is located in the immeasurable natural beauty of Big Sur on the California coast. Unobtrusive by design, it is both private from the main road and utterly transparent to what lies ahead. Likened to a trio of gliding Manta Rays, its environmental footprint is virtually null, being raised on a cantilevered podium causing minimum disturbance to the site.

An Office for Three Companies in New York by Only If

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

Article source: Only If 

How to use color and material to unify an increasing amount of junk in the contemporary office landscape? An office interior for three companies is structured by a neutral background of white walls, white exposed ceilings, and a poured black floor. Everything connected to the floor is black. Everything connected to the ceiling is white. The three companies, while different and to a certain degree independent, are unified through this common material framework.
