Inspiration will be drawn from all facets of the culinary team’s broad spectrum of experiences and tastes, with an emphasis on open fire roasting/cooking utilizing the two custom handcrafted wood burning fireplaces, one located in the main dining room and the other in the bar/lounge area.

WSDG CREATES RUSTIC OWL CITY STUDIO FOR PLATINUM ARTIST ADAM YOUNG

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Article source: Walters Storyk Design Group (WSDG)

Progressing rapidly from nascent  electronica music experiments in his parents’ basement back in 2007, singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Adam Young has evolved from initial iTunes sales and a burgeoning Myspace site to a major deal with Republic Records in 2008, and on to Fireflies, a six-time platinum single, from his Ocean Eyes debut album (certified platinum in 2010). Increasing critical and commercial success has intensified Young’s focus on his music. To support his creativity he moved from his family home to a handsome rustic log cabin deep in the Minnesota woods, where he recently completed construction on a Walters-Storyk Design Group ‘dream’ studio.

Truly Open Eichler Home in Palo Alto, CA by Klopf Architecture

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

Klopf ArchitectureArterra Landscape Architects and Flegel’s Construction recently completed a beautiful and insightful remodel of a classic Eichler home that I think would be a perfect fit.

I know that this remodel of an iconic mid-century home would be a wonderful renovation feature, because the design team so sensitively addressed the needs of the homeowners and expanded on the original intent of the home.

Lark Residence in Seattle, Washington by Stephenson Design Collective

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Article source: Stephenson Design Collective

A small home in the residential neighborhood of Ballard in Seattle, WA was carefully dismantled by hand to save and salvage every piece of available material in order to create the Lark House. The existing home contained a full height basement that was inspected and reused as the foundation of the new home in order to take advantage of existing conditions and reuse the available earthwork and concrete already in place. The small footprint allowed for less of a typical living space so the design incorporated a covered patio off of the living room. Separated only by a folding window wall, this doubled the interior space when opened.  Keeping the smaller existing footprint also allowed for more yard play space for the kids and garden space for the entire family. Floating above the concrete patio is the aluminum-clad form containing the main bedroom and bath. Skylights brighten the bathroom with natural light, while providing privacy from the neighboring homes. Connecting the living level with the bedrooms above is an open stairwell surrounded by glass. To avoid excessive sun exposure, the windows are clad with a cedar wall screen that allows filtered light and view in and out of the home.  Concrete floors and durable materials are used throughout for the active family to enjoy their time together rather than working to constantly maintain the building. The rooftop deck replaces the displaced footprint of the home while garden planters utilize the rainwater.

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

Our proposal for the design of multi-family housing in Marfa, Texas, consists of three rammed earth dwellings that are integrated into the landscape. We are proposing to combine local building techniques with a formal language which alludes to the carved rock formations and smooth transitions found in the indigenous landscape of the Chihuahuan desert.
