House on Solitude Creek in St. Michaels, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

The design of this house in St. Michaels, Maryland was greatly influenced by environmental regulations, zoning requirements and restrictive building codes specific to this site. The existing Dutch Colonial Style house, built in 1989, was located within a One-Hundred Foot Buffer Zone on Solitude Creek, a small estuary in this Maryland Eastern Shore town. A recently adopted Floodplain Management Ordinance mandated that no new structures be built within the Buffer Zone, and that all renovated or altered existing structures be updated to meet new zoning, building and environmental code requirements.

Monsieur Benjamin in San Francisco, California by Aidlin Darling Design

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Article source: Aidlin Darling Design

Located just off the bustling Hayes Street corridor in San Francisco, this new contemporary French bistro aims to blur the distinctions between traditional and modern in its cuisine and design. Decidedly more casual than Chef Lee’s 3-star Michelin restaurant Benu, Monsieur Benjamin also obscures the relationship between comfort food and formal cuisine. This obfuscation is reflected in the design. Situated on the corner of Gough Street and the tree-lined Ivy alley, the new 98-seat restaurant aims to absorb the energy, urbanity and pedestrian scale of both streets, and will include outdoor seating on Ivy, all within view of Hayes Street.

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Article source: SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRILL LLP

The Christ Hospital Joint and Spine Center, opened in September 2015, is a new model for integrated, patient-centered orthopedic care. Growing out of an SOM master plan for the hospital’s Cincinnati campus, the 381,000-square-foot, seven-story facility houses approximately 90 inpatient rooms and 12 surgical suites. The building is filled with natural light and flexible semi-public spaces offer a place of respite for caregivers and families. Patient rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and are organized and furnished to provide a soothing environment to patients and their families. Decentralized nursing desks, located next to patient rooms, place caregivers closer to those they serve and keep the patient floor quiet by dispersing activity.

PEAK LINE – Parametric Urban Planning in San Diego, California by SO/AP ARCHITECTS

Friday, March 4th, 2016

Article source: SO/AP ARCHITECTS

GENERAL DESIGN:

The bias of SO/AP agency was to design an urban pattern generated by tools for parametric programming. The urban grid, the study of heights and typology of housing are the optimized results from simulations between a 3D parametric design software, and software for environmental analysis.

All data as solar radiation, natural lighting condition, thermal performance and water consumption have been integrated to the urban design from the beginning.

A urban grid with 20/20m plots – 10m spaced -, is at first uniformly contorted to have the optimize pattern following the contour lines on slopping fields. The simulating of solar potential generates two progressive areas of highest building. It defined two urban attractive areas; each one will be specially focused on winter activities or summer activities.  A last parametric control working on plots morphology, define the optimized housing typology and zoning area.
