Palo Alto Eichler Remodel in CA by Klopf Architecture

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Article source: Klopf Architecture 

Klopf Architecture updated a classic Eichler indoor-outdoor home to better suit the needs of a very busy family. The owners have two rather young kids and are also professionals with unpredictable, busy schedules. The house also had to accommodate the needs of two live-in nannies who cover for the parents when they’re indisposed. With those considerations in mind, the owners selected this house because it was larger than typical Eichlers because past additions had been already been made to the house. However, at the time of purchase the house was in poor condition and needed a complete gut remodel including all new roof, mechanical systems, and electrical, the replacement of dry-rotted siding and framing, some layout changes, and all new finishes. The house is super-insulated and has no need of air-conditioning.

HINMAN RESEARCH BUILDING in Atlanta, Georgia by NADAAA

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

Article source: NADAAA 

During the middle of the last century, the College of Architecture at Georgia Tech was guided by the work and pedagogy of architect Paul M. Heffernan (director, 1956-75), who contributed to the establishment of a modern discourse based on Bauhaus-influenced functionalism. Heffernan also exerted a significant impact on the campus at-large, designing several modern buildings during the 1940s and 50s that constitute an enclave he labeled the “academic village.” The Hinman Research Building (1939) was the first of these to be built; it received major additions and renovations throughout the last century to accommodate changing needs.
