Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Larson O’Brien Marketing Group

MUKWONAGO, WI…Commutes between Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia are famously arduous. Thanks to the new Dulles Corridor Metrorail Silver Line, those routes have gotten significantly easier. The route currently runs to fast-growing areas outside of Washington, D.C., including Tysons Corner, and will eventually provide a direct route from Dulles International Airport to downtown Washington, D.C. Pedestrian bridges featuring more than 60,000-square-feet of Banker Wire woven wire mesh are interspersed throughout the line.

Collaborative Life Sciences Building & Skourtes Tower in Portland, Oregon by SERA Architects and CO Architects

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

Article source: SERA Architects and CO Architects

As Design Architects and Interior Designers, CO Architects worked closely with Executive Architect SERA Architects to create the design for the Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB), which embodies and helps achieve the goals of an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional campus. The building does so in the form of a 12-story complex with 500,000 square feet of space for classrooms, lecture halls, and laboratories for research and teaching, including medical simulation laboratories for high-tech, team-based learning. The building is conceived as an innovative model of interdisciplinary health sciences education and research, engaging students, faculty, and pedestrians through a concept of “health science on display.” Slated to open July 2014, CLSB, which is targeting LEED Platinum, will also be a striking new landmark on Portland’s South Waterfront.

This house positions itself as a backdrop to a spectacular site, with a dense canopy of trees in front and steep ravine in back. Our goal was to preserve all of the site’s large live oaks while creating a sense of transparency that allows the landscape to flow through the living spaces.

OFF GRID RETREAT in Appalachian Ohio by Midland Architecture

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015

Article source: Midland Architecture

Description:

This 900 square foot off grid retreat, situated on the family’s cattle farm in Appalachian Ohio, blends old and new technologies to create a self-sustaining home. South facing glazing in the living room provides views across a seven acre lake, and is also integral to the passive solar design which generates heat when coupled with the concrete finish floors. Additional sustainable features include a fresh water cistern supplied by a natural spring that runs along the building site; electricity generated by a solar cell array; and spray foam insulated walls and ceilings. The exterior is clad with a Corten metal standing seam roof and burnt cedar siding with Douglas fir columns. The interior layout features two bedrooms and a single bath, along with a great room and kitchen.
