Underwood Pavilion in Muncie, Indiana by Gernot Riether

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Article source: Gernot Riether

The Underwood Pavilion was featured by The Star Press as Indiana’s new art destination. The traveling pavilion celebrates the qualities and potentials of Indiana’s post-industrial landscape through attracting people to places that are currently not considered public space. The pavilion is the outcome of the Digital Design Build Studio, directed by Gernot Riether and Andrew Wit, both professors at Ball State University. At the time it is located close to Muncie, a 70,000 inhabitants city in central Indiana.

LOPEZ HOUSE in Eagle Rock, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture

This project, located in the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles, is situated on an irregularly-shaped, steeply-sloping lot. Faced with a limited budget, it was particularly challenging to negotiate the constraints of the lot while taking advantage of the site’s sweeping view. The owners wanted the house to evoke the area’s craftsmen architecture, so this vernacular served as a basis for the design.

West Los Angeles Office Building in California by GMPA Architects

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: GMPA Architects

Located at a busy, pivoting point intersection where retail, commercial and residential properties merge, the design direction for this proposed office building emphasizes a connection to its neighbors—both the businesses and the residential communities—with the goal of integrating these adjacencies visually and figuratively to enhance the urban community. The concept strives to encourage pedestrian activity and communication. A predominance of translucent glass allows natural light inside while providing views to outdoor street-level activity and adding a sense of vibrancy to the community. A connection also exists between the curved front of the building and a new green public park that will face that portion of the structure.

Lampwork Lofts in Oakland, California by Levy Design Partners, Inc

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Article source: Levy Design Partners, Inc 

This historically significant 4-story building, constructed of masonry bearing walls and heavy timber, occupies a rectangular 1.5 acre site at 1614 Campbell Street in Oakland, CA. Originally used as an incandescent light factory by General Electric (GE) and designed by the Austin Company, the building construction was completed between 1912 and 1917. The site continued under GE ownership in 1962 when the division closed. The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake resulted in the destruction of a north bay of the west wing, not to be rebuilt in the rehabilitation project. The structure is noted for being the first industrial building on the West Coast to employ women.

Carroll House in Venice, California by Dimster Architecture 

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Article source: Chibi Moku 

This renovation of a single family home in the historic Venice Canals presented the opportunity to reimagine the house. The ground floor was reorganized to an open plan, allowing all rooms access to the view and outdoor spaces. A new wood deck fronting the canals includes an open fire pit and custom benches and planters. The deck and ground floor at the same elevation, serving to extend the living room space to the outdoors, accessible through a triple sliding glass door. The upstairs bedrooms are remote and quiet, with the master bedroom enjoying a private deck also overlooking the canals. In re-organizing the floor plan, a new stair was designed, cantilevering from a wall with no apparent structure, further emphasized by the suspended glass guardrail. The home captures the distinct character of the canal district and its unique personality.

Dual House in Venice, California

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Article source: Chibi Moku

The Dual House is a new duplex for two related families, with an emphasis on balancing shared and personal spaces. While appearing to be a single building, two structures are placed back-to-back allowing for private garden entries and a communal roof deck. The garages, bedrooms, and entry are incorporated on the lower level, with a convertible bedroom/office having direct access to the garden.  On the second floor, the directional emphasis shifts to the long alley, highlighting the stairs, views, and available light for the main living spaces along this façade.  Tucked behind this public space are the master bedroom and bath.  The suspended steel stairs are a focal point for both inside and out.

Central Arizona College in Maricopa, Arizona by SmithGroupJJR

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Article source: SmithGroupJJR

Known for its history as a pre-railroad stagecoach town, the town of Maricopa has balanced its agricultural and Native American identities for the past century. Most recently Maricopa, a community 40 miles south of Phoenix, has been chronicled by the New York Times as a bedroom community boom town gone bust. Central Arizona College has made an investment in the community and is betting on its future. This campus represents a glimmer of hope in an area struck by the national recession.
