Hill House in Winthrop, Washington by David Coleman Architecture

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

Article source: David Coleman Architecture

This is a modest, sustainable building with a big presence in a big landscape.

The Hill House sits on a long, narrow, rocky ridge line, sloping gently to the south and steeply to the east and west. Site conditions dictated a long, narrow structure, and client expectations suggested a building deeply rooted in the landscape. The resulting project is conceived as a habitable landscape, a place to gather, shelter and rest, closely aligned with the rugged beauty of the site and responsive to the natural conditions.

A research scientist with an eye for detail approached Studio VARA with a modest vision and a couple of basic practical needs:  First, transform a 1908 Noe Valley cottage– with a history of subpar alterations – into a cohesive modern dwelling.  Second, provide an enclosed garage in a neighborhood with tough parking.

Bal House in Menlo Park, California by Terry & Terry Architecture

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

Article source: v2com

This project consists of a single-story addition and renovation to an existing mid-century ranch house in Menlo Park, California.

Conceived for a retired couple, the open and accessible design integrates the living space with the rear garden to create a well-lit domestic extension. Comprised of two floating volumes, the addition formally designates the bedroom to the west and the main (common) space to the east. The two wings gradually diverge from the original structure to generate a glass-clad fissure in between. This void space pulls the garden inwards, injecting elements of the outdoors into the core of the house.

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Article source: Eoghan Hoare 

The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Bethany is one of Connecticut’s best-kept secrets. Nestled in the woods, it’s a magnet for pilgrims of the Bauhaus keen to learn more about the German émigrés who were among the school’s most inspiring teachers. Featuring paintings, furniture and textiles produced by the pair throughout their long careers, the foundation has now put on permanent display never-seen-before furniture and textiles, accumulated over the past 40 years.
