Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: [STRANG] Architecture

Built on speculation, this tropical modern residence is located on DiLido Island in Miami Beach.   Open water views of Biscayne Bay informed the design of this six-bedroom home. The Master Suite and Great Room feature walls of glass, while generous overhangs protect the home from the elements.  Natural light floods the entire home as a result of a strategically placed entry courtyard.  The home is currently offered for sale for $13,800,000 through Calibre International Realty.

Sullivan Street Duplex in SoHo, New York City by Slade Architecture

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

Article source: Slade Architecture

Our goal in renovating this penthouse duplex for a young bachelor was to maximize the impact of the light and views that the penthouse floor-through configuration afforded. The existing apartment had terraces on both levels but the windows and interior partitions limited the impact of this exterior exposure on the interior spaces.

Waechter Architecture Maximizes Allowable ADU Space by Dramatizing Classic Pitched-Roof House Typology for \”Garden House\”

For this house-in-a-backyard, otherwise known as an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), the award-winning Portland architecture firm of Waechter Architecture took Portland’s increased density movement and used it as an opportunity to explore housing iconography, sculptural forms, dual-purpose elements, and explore how to massage small space regulations in order to maximize useable space.

Pavilion House in Portland, Oregon by Waechter Architecture

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Article source: Waechter Architecture

Our clients wanted a glass house.  The difficulty was that they wanted this house placed on a visually exposed 50’ x 100’ city lot that they owned in NE Portland.  This posed the challenge of designing a glass house with privacy.  Our solution was to design a pavilion-like structure in which the body of the house is supported by 4 ten-foot tall “legs.”  The legs are placed strategically to block unwanted views and provide privacy.

Artist Studio/Residence in Woodstock, New York by Gans studio

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Article source: Gans studio

The studio residence is a free-standing building that completes an ensemble of experience and use in relation to a pre-existing house and a landscape. The new building contains a small drawing studio, workroom and kiln tucked beneath a library and a bedroom suite that overlook a double height sculpture space. It connects to the pre-existing house via two bridges: an upper bridge that extends from the living room to a new roof garden floating before the Catskills; and a lower bridge that ties the studio back into the hillside.

50 Lispenard in New York by SOMA architects

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Article source: SOMA architects

50 Lispenard is a seven story refurbishment project located in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. The original building was a garment factory, and is historically protected, thus the extent of the refurbishment was limited to strictly interior improvements, with the exception of a duplex penthouse addition to the roof. The interiors are rich with wood, steel, and concrete, recalling the original industrial function of the building. The duplex penthouse revolves around a double height void and glass bridge overlooking two outdoor roof terraces.
