Two West KC & Two West LA in Kansas City by KEM STUDIO

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: KEM STUDIO

The Two West space was as much about the design of the branding + communications company’s culture as it was the design of the space. Unexpected interaction with communal lounge and café spaces, oversized doors and large expanses of uninterrupted glazing make the company process visible to employees and client, increase collaborative work space and define the company culture through the design of the space. In the end, the space and architectural elements reinforce the companies brand and facilitates how they want their employees to work.

CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART in Ohio by Rafael Viñoly Architects

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: Rafael Viñoly Architects 

The Cleveland Museum of Art, one of the largest and most important art institutions in the United States, was built in 1916 by local architects Hubbell and Benes as a Greek revival pavilion, situated at the head of a pastoral park and lagoon landscape designed by the Olmsted Brothers. However, subsequent additions, including a noteworthy education wing by Marcel Breuer, obscured the rational plan of the original structure with a disjointed, confusing warren of spaces. In 2001, Rafael Viñoly Architects won the commission to resolve these conditions with an expansion and renovation, creating a coherent organization of galleries that accommodates projected growth and unifies disparate architectural vocabularies into a singular composition.

2222 Jackson in New York by ODA New York

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Article source: ODA New York 

Just steps from MoMA PS1 in white hot Long Island City Queens, ODA New York is upending the real estate market with an 11-story, 175-unit rental project to rival the best of luxury condo living.

Distinguished by its sculptural, almost pixelated, poured concrete exterior, 2222 Jackson is both an easy material compliment to neighboring PS1, and an exemplar of its designer’s larger mission: Adept at working within—rather than against—zoning constraints, ODA has once again focused on innovating architectural morphology in the interest of improving not only its residents’ everyday experience, but their general quality of life.

Sacramento Modern Residence in Orangevale, California by Klopf Architecture

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Article source: Klopf Architecture 

Architecture designed and Van Gelder Construction built a new warm, modern residence to replace an existing ranch home. The owners, who previously lived in a Streng home (similar to an Eichler), liked clean lines, simple details, and openness to the outdoors. The site is a large plot in a semi-rural area surrounded by an open field, large oak trees and a seasonal creek. It is a calm environment that invites a close connection with the house. The house is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, and 2,633 square foot that is intended to be the home this couple will live in for a long time.

Montecito Residence in California by olson kundig

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Article source: olson kundig 

The Montecito Residence is a single-family home set in fire-prone Toro Canyon near Santa Barbara. The owners wanted a house that minimized the use of scarce natural resources and that was equal to the challenging environmental conditions of the site. The design solution was to harvest and control the very climatic conditions that put the canyon so at risk for fire: the sun and the wind.

Article source: Studio Gang Architects 

Historically, convening for social justice has taken place in informal settings—a church basement, a living room, or even around a kitchen table.
