Topo House in Blue Mounds, Wisconsin by Johnsen Schmaling Architects

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source: Johnsen Schmaling Architects 

The Topo House occupies a site embedded in the softly rolling hills of Wisconsin’s “Driftless Region.” The project explores how a building can literally merge with its context, blurring the boundaries between architecture and landscape, between tectonics and nature.

Ground at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut by Bentel and Bentel Architects

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source:  Bentel and Bentel Architects

The new ‘Ground’ cafe, at Yale’s Marcel Breuer-designed Becton School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (‘SEAS’), serves not only to create social cohesion among faculty and students of the engineering school, but also to encourage interaction between and among members of other departments in the University. In the design, the firm engaged the unadorned poured-concrete volume of this former seminar room by layering a palette of walnut planks, perforated aluminum, and cleft bluestone over the walls, floor, and ceiling of the space. The original concrete surfaces are intentionally visible through, and are highlighted by, the veils of the material intervention out of respect for Breuer’s unique exploration in his design of the textural possibilities of a single material.

Fashion[ING] Objects in Austin, Texas by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source: Matt Fajkus Architecture

FASHION[ING] OBJECTS is an instrument for space, light, and threshold that creates maximal impact with minimal means by arranging and reconfiguring everyday objects in an unexpected and extraordinary way. It is an original backdrop installation piece designed and fabricated for an the annual premier fashion event in Austin, Texas held in September 2012. Beginning with the simple idea of an Erwin Hauer inspired screen, the intention for the backdrop was to veil the models as they emerged from backstage, to dapple light as well as to convey a sense of depth and movement beyond.

Head in the Clouds Pavilion in New York City by STUDIOKCA

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source: STUDIOKCA

The Head in the Clouds Pavilion on New York City’s Governors Island comes out of the desire to create a ‘place to dream in the city of dreams’. Made from 53,780 recycled plastic bottles – the amount, thrown away in New York City in 1 hour – it is a space where visitors can enter into and contemplate the light and color filtering through the ‘cloud’ from the inside, out.

Fall House in CA by FOUGERON ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: FOUGERON ARCHITECTURE

This three-bedroom home, on Big Sur’s spectacular south coast, is anchored in the natural beauty and power of this California landscape. Our design strategy embeds the building within the land, creating a structure inseparable from its context. The site offers dramatic views: a 250-foot drop to the Pacific Ocean both along the bluff and the western exposure. Yet it demands a form more complex than a giant picture window.

Article source: FRPO RODRIGUEZ & ORIOL ARCHITECTS

The San Lucas Pavilion is, fundamentally, a reinforced concrete structure, barely 15 cm wide, which is arranged based on screens and one-meter edge beams, constraining an 11×11 meter square ground plan, in the limit between a lush pine forest and a very clean and carefully kept prairie.

STAAB RESIDENCE in Scottsdale, Arizona by Chen + Suchart Studio, LLC

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Article source: Chen + Suchart Studio, LLC

The context for this site consists of larger homes on one-acre lots.  Aesthetically, the neighboring houses’ architectural language is more often than not, associated with speculative developer trends and styles, rather than an integrated understanding of the site, the views, and other opportunities.  As a result, the project required a strategy which would edit out the immediate context of this neighborhood while focusing on distant views of the McDowell Mountains to the north and the valley to the south and southwest.  The project also sought to create a protected courtyard space for the backyard and pool area as an immediate focus for the lower level of the house in contrast to the second level taking advantage of the more distant views.
