House of Shifting Sands in Massachusetts by Ruhl Walker Architects

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

Sited gently on the lower slope of a dramatic sixty foot high coastal bank and surrounded by miles of undeveloped Cape Cod National Seashore beaches and scrub pines is a warm, modern beach house that is more than just a place to enjoy uninterrupted ocean views and sea breezes. Our clients dreamed of a house that would work equally well as both a year-round family “camp” and also as a “thinking retreat” for collaborating with their colleagues.

Mystic Lake House in Massachusetts by Ruhl Walker Architects

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

Our clients found the perfect location for their dream house on the shores of Mystic Lake, facing a heavily wooded park on the opposite shore and only a short drive from Cambridge and Boston. Alas, there was an existing house on the property, and the house was not actually for sale. However, the stars must have been aligned and their passion prevailed after it turned out that the current owner was actually contemplating a move to Washington, DC. With so few affordable undeveloped lots in suburban Boston, many of our clients are turning to “tear-down’s”, especially given that the more affordable houses are typically in such poor condition.

GOLDENEYE in Virginia by Reader & Swartz Architects

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Article source: Reader & Swartz Architects

On a steep mountainside in the Appalachian Mountains, a modern lair will be created. The approach road curves in and out, following the mountain’s topography. The road affords, and then takes away, views of the sleek, modern box through the trees and around the topography.

DAS SWARTZENREADER HAUS in Winchester, Virginia by Reader & Swartz Architects

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Article source: Reader & Swartz Architects

This house was originally built in 1968. It had a 4/12 gable roof, a boxy, conventional floor plan, and a second floor that cantilevered two feet past the first floor. The house sat on the top of a very steep hill, on a small corner lot, within an established neighborhood. Although the house had an amazing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was virtually no way to appreciate it through the minimal number of small windows. The lot dropped 30 feet within its 100-foot depth, helping give the house its great view and vantage point, but also making grading and access difficult. The 8′ ceilings were interrupted by bulkheads, lowering them to 6′-8′ in some rooms.

Westport River House in Massachusetts by Ruhl Walker Architects

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

Built on a gentle slope on the Westport River, less than a mile from the coast in southeastern Massachusetts is an unabashedly modern glass house designed for a well known Cambridge general contractor and his wife. Mature oaks and cedars define the property edges and frame dramatic sunset and island views. The architecture expresses the owners’ gregarious way of life, and accommodates their passions for cooking and entertaining their large group of devoted friends.

Nike Union Square Flagship Installation in San Francisco, California by FreelandBuck

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Article source: FreelandBuck

As part of Nike’s overhaul of their flagship store on Union Square, our two-story lobby installation is a dynamic array of over 600 reclaimed bleachers which cantilever out over the escalator leading into the store. The well-worn bleacher board, a material Nike has used in numerous stores to convey familiarity and use, is organized here as a set of vectors that flow through the lobby. Ideally, the anomalies of the material are enough to disrupt the smoothness of the geometry, while the unstable, precarious array disrupts a purely nostalgia reading of the bleachers yielding a wider range of associations.
