12 Warren in New York by DDG

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Article source: DDG 

12 Warren is a boutique residential condominium building nestled in TriBeCa offering just 13 full-floor, duplex and triplex residences. Developed, designed and constructed by DDG, 12 Warren is a compliment to the company’s growing portfolio of design-driven residential projects on the East and West Coasts, while being unlike any other new residential building in New York City. The building features a plethora of handcrafted and artisanal details, none more striking than the signature façade of rough-hewn bluestone quarried in upstate New York. The hand-laid façade is already an impressive addition to one of Manhattan’s most desired residential neighborhoods, creating an engaging contrast when seen among TriBeCa’s historic loft buildings and modern glass structures.12 Warren is a boutique residential condominium building nestled in TriBeCa offering just 13 full-floor, duplex and triplex residences.

Article source: studio razavi architecture 

Zags is a startup company in the field of software technology for insurance companies. We had to create a design that offered both the floor plan flexibility and a more structured organization of spaces. By locating glass partitioned offices at each corner we could take advantage of the floor plan configuration and create the desired variety and compartmentalization that was required by the tenant.

Reflects in Cleveland, Ohio by SILO AR+D

Friday, November 24th, 2017

Article source: SILO AR+D 

Reflects is a winner of an architect-led design build competition for a temporary “treehouse” structure that became a centerpiece of the Cleveland Botanical Garden’s 2015 summer show. The brief called for an innovative treehouse design that reconnected guests of all ages to the outdoors through interactive experiences that reveal the physical, emotional, and developmental benefits of staying engaged with outdoor environments. The chosen site was the Secret Garden, a walled court with no trees surrounded by manicured gardens adjacent to the existing Botanical Garden building. The design emerges from the challenge of imagining treehouse architecture on a tree-less site.

Surfboard House in Queens, New York by BFDO Architects

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Article source: v2com

Five years after Hurricane Sandy devastated the cooperative beachfront community of Breezy Point, Queens, the project built upon a lot that had been reduced to sand is complete. Houses in Breezy Point are set close together and linked by pedestrian paths; cars are confined to lots at the periphery. The client’s site was unusually wide, with 68 feet of south-facing beach frontage. Flood regulations required building at least six feet off of the ground, while co-op regulations put the maximum building height at 28 feet. The co-op also required a setback from the lot line of 32 feet at the lot’s widest point. The resulting building envelope was much shallower than wide, allowing nearly every room to have an ocean view. One of the primary design strategies was stepping the south-facing facade to allow windows to wrap corners. That created diagonal sightlines up and down the beach, framing vistas and visually expanding the interior spaces. Angled roof profiles and ceiling finishes also direct the eye upward and outward.
