Red House in Portland, Oregon by Waechter Architecture

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Article source: Waechter Architecture

Construction has completed on Red House, a 1910 farmhouse that went bold.

Construction has completed on Red House. Award-winning Waechter Architecture was given the challenge of breathing new life into an existing 1910 farmhouse-style building located in an urban SE Portland neighborhood. A balance between new and old was desired; memory of the original balanced with freshness and vitality of the new. The solution was to maintain the original form of the house but abstract it into a modern sculpture.

Urban 24 in Chicago, Illinois by Studio Dwell Architects

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Article source: Studio Dwell Architects

Looking like a missing tooth, this project helped to complete a gap in the urban fabric of this intimate residential row house street in Chicago. The row-houses were built in the 1890’s, showing wear and demolition over the years. Infilling this small lot provided challenges for the new residence; to not disturb adjacent 100 year old structures, party wall encroachments and to respect the existing scale of the street. The shoring of the adjacent structures and the house’s new foundations required complex design and construction, including a cantilevered concrete foundation wall to avoid interfering with the adjacent party wall footing.

Article source: MA2

The Houston Library and Exhibition Complex is the second installment in the initiation of dynamic architectural proposals for Houston, Texas and the greater development of ideas for American cities. The design functions along multiple trajectories of display corridors and library storage to interpolate exhibition with an expanded book collection for international reading and research. By having a series of harmonic manifolds of book collection space and the mixing of programmatic function for exhibition, it generates a dynamical system of flowing conditions which manifests with moments of extrapolation within the tectonic massing and circulation. Within the radiating tectonic corridors there is also included smaller botanical gardens which resonates with the surrounding landscape development as well, serving the community with a robust flower display and plaza.

Malin+Goetz Madison Avenue in New York by Messana O’Rorke

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: Messana O’Rorke

Our client, Malin+Goetz entrusted us with designing their third NYC store. Even though their visual identity is minimal with unified color-coding, they requested us to create a space that accommodates to the Upper East Side demographics by providing a traditional customer experience. Therefore it was crucial to have a layout that is clean-cut so if someone entered the store they would understand its functionality immediately. We were also focusing on using materials that are familiar for the potential customers in the neighborhood.
