Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source: YHLA Architects

This project provides affordable workforce housing for low-income workers and families who previously lived in dilapidated, substandard housing in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Consisting of nine buildings located on five scattered sites (named Chipmunk, Deer, Fox, Trout, and Brook), Kings Beach Housing Now provides 77 LEED Silver apartments that reduce negative impacts on the environment, reuse infill land, and preserve Tahoe’s beautiful open spaces.

Sierra Bonita Housing in West Hollyood, California by Patrick Tighe Architecture

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Patrick Tighe Architecture

The design challenge of this project—the first all-affordable mixed-use development in West Hollywood and the first designed and completed according to the city’s new Green Building Ordinance—was to fit the desired 42 accessible units on a 13,000-square-foot site and within a 50-foot height limit. The design used minimal exterior setbacks and reversed the typical unit layout—locating the bedrooms along the interior building courtyard and the living areas on the street side—to capitalize on views and natural light.

La Boutique in New York City by EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Article source: EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect 

The new offices of the Paris based digital photo retouching studio B’Pong were designed to help launch their presence in New York City. The entry space and central conference area are wrapped in stacked homasote, to create a sense of mass and weight, a counterpoint to the light coming from skylights above. The workspace beyond is accessed through a door in the mass and reveals glowing workstations. These are encased in corrugated resin and perforated metal screen, creating a moiré effect around the desks.
