Island Residence in Honolulu, Hawaii by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Situated on the Ocean’s coastline at a corner of an ancient fishpond, this private residence reflects the culture of the Hawaiian Islands by embracing its lush surroundings. The clients sought a modern expression that drew inspiration from their Japanese heritage, without being overly imitative or contrived. This influence is often subtle, manifesting itself through an attention to detail, an affinity for craftsmanship, and a delight in natural materials.

Independence Pass Residence in Aspen, Colorado by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

At the edge of a nature preserve, the Independence Pass Residence has sweeping views across an alpine meadow to the Roaring Fork River and the Rocky Mountains. The house stretches between two knolls, forming a threshold to the views. A series of textured Vals quartzite walls extend into the landscape on either side, giving weight to the lower level. The upper volume is a glass and wood pavilion with a roof that floats on slender stainless steel columns. Its position on the site, linear shape and the use of glass, steel and quartzite gives great strength to this mountain home.

Hog Pen Creek Retreat in Austin, Texas by Lake|Flato Architects

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Situated at the confluence of Hog Pen Creek and Lake Austin, Hog Pen Creek Residence was envisioned by its owners as a place that evokes the playfulness of summer on the lake and emphasizes exterior living space. Towering heritage oak trees, a steeply sloping site and aggressive setbacks from the water created challenging site constraints thoughtfully answered by the home’s L-shaped footprint and orientation. A long exterior boardwalk connects a series of structures that stair step down the hillside, crossing a 75-foot lap pool and terminating at a screened pavilion by the water’s edge.

1212 FOOD BOUTIQUE in Lodi, California by MARGSTUDIO

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

Article source: MARGSTUDIO

The project develops the concept of a small shop in the heart of the old town of Lodi, where the owners had the need to unite the sale of two types of products completely at odds: craft beers and confetti with bombioniere. The idea was to separate the two types of products not in the physical sense but perceptive, delineating spaces chromatically (dark gray on one side and white on the other) uniting the shop with some textural elements of furniture made with the same essence wooden. The result maintains a minimal line on one side and the other functional, making the homogeneous spatial experience but at the same time personalized depending on whether you are in one or another space.

The Transformable Workplace Pod by jantzen studio

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Article source: jantzen studio

The Transformable Workplace Pod is a concept proposal for a special place in which to work. The design of the painted wood structure is based on an eight-foot cube, but these dimensions can change, and the basic cube can be connected together with other cubes in multiple diverse configurations, to form much larger spaces. The prefabricated cubes can be delivered to a site with little preparation needed.

8 Octavia in San Francisco, California by STANLEY SAITOWITZ │ NATOMA ARCHITECTS INC.

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Article source: STANLEY SAITOWITZ │ NATOMA ARCHITECTS INC. 

The site is where the elevated 101 Freeway connects to the surface streets at Market and becomes Octavia Boulevard – the entrance to north/west sector of San Francisco. The First Baptist Church with its classical façade and strong cornice is one pylon of this entrance.  Mirroring this mass, on the other side of Octavia Boulevard, 8 Octavia completes the gateway. This entry is seen as an opportunity to present our new city, one that folds tradition and innovation.

Parking Deck to Greenspace

DES A+E designed the High Garden to transform what would ordinarily be an underutilized parking deck into a green oasis. Instead of 250 parking spots, it has two-acres of greenspace. The park is one of the central amenities to the Moffett Place campus, which was recently leased to Google in its entirety. The campus is the 2nd largest office project under construction in Silicon Valley.

CHS Field is conceived first as a park and a public space, and then as a sports venue.  Working with the City of Saint Paul and the St. Paul Saints, an independent league franchise committed to providing a unique fan experience, the design team slipped a 7,000 seat ballpark into a remnant site between an interstate highway, an elevated bridge, a light rail operations facility and the historic Lower town District on the edge of the City’s business district.
