360 House in Oregon Coast by Bora Architects

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

Article source: Bora Architects

Perched above the beach at the edge of the tree line, this vacation home allows the dramatic Oregon Coast to take center stage. The design maintains sightlines from the sheltered forest to the open coastline with a minimal structure of glass and steel. Atop the two-story, transparent box, the copper-clad green roof is an elevated slab of native ferns and grasses.

ST JOHN’S PARK PAVILION in New York by ON-A

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Article source: ON-A

The development of a prototype as a pavilion in one of the parks in the district of Manhattan, is stimulated in a practical exercise exploring parametric structures that expand the vision of the possibilities offered by the implementation of this technology. This time the project is a public space that with his centrality and disuse, try to revalue this urban void not only with the presence of the pavilion. The global proposal includes urban furniture and pavements to emphasize the radial nature and geometry of the place. Also the pavilion responds to a three-dimensional mesh that is coded to coordinates and main axes where are sets the diamond geometry and the scale of the openings deployed as a protective surface taking as reference the formal structure of deployé.

The Ten at South Person in Raleigh, North Carolina by in situ studio

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

The Ten at South Person was designed for a vacant site in downtown Raleigh. The project is a new housing format for Raleigh – modern, affordable, and possessing row house DNA. The design maximizes square footage at low cost, builds from defining characteristics of a surrounding historic district, and creates a healthy streetscape via stoops and the play of materials and relief on the street facade. The units sold in only six days at a price that was the least expensive per-square-foot housing offered in downtown in years. Despite its modern form, the complex is nestled comfortably within the neighborhood.

Los Feliz Residence in California by Surfacedesign, Inc

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: Surfacedesign, Inc

The Dundee Residence landscape transforms a simple pool deck and poorly maintained hillside landscape into an exuberant space for living and entertaining, and ultimately a dynamic play space for a mother (and Hollywood stylist) and her young children.  The house was built speculatively in the 1990’s and designed to mimic the steep architectural pedigrees of its international style neighbors.  Dundee sits perched high in the hills with sweeping views of Downtown Los Angeles to the South and the chaparral hills of Griffith Park to the east.  Located in hills above the Los Feliz, the neighborhood is home to actors, rockstars and Hollywood elite and to some of LA’s most significant architecture, including Frank Llloyd Wright’s Ennis-Brown House and Richard Neutra’s Lovell Health House.

Medlin Residence in Raleigh, North Carolina by in situ studio

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

Our clients wanted a four-bedroom house with large public spaces that would open onto a constrained suburban site near downtown Raleigh. The existing site was long north to south and sloped down to the street on the north side. A stream bisected the site near the street, and the associated floodplain precluded construction on the front half of the property. A dramatic slope at the rear of the site prevented locating the house far back on the property. Our response to these constraints was a compact, two-story “L” that creates an private outdoor space between the house and the hillside.

The Corbett Residence in Bahama, North Carolina by in situ studio

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

The Corbett Residence is on a wooded site, down a winding drive. The drive is thin and meanders between trees to protect the house from view. The house is a low black box that strikes a line across the slope, mimicking the horizon. The house is at the edge of a hill, above a creek, and is oriented to admit light and views of the forest. At the east end of the house, the master bedroom looks out to a large red oak and fern glade. Our clients, who are restrained, contributed beautiful ideas and challenged us to express necessity.
