TOPFER THEATRE AT ZACH in Austin, Texas by Andersson-Wise Architects

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Article source: Andersson-Wise Architects

The new Topfer Theatre at ZACH, the regional theater for Austin and Central Texas, was completed in the fall of 2012. Andersson-Wise Architects designed the building and its surrounding outdoor spaces to define a dramatic, iconic image for ZACH within the context of the city, as well as to create a performing arts campus that engages its strategic site on Lady Bird Lake. The theater’s stage fly loft, with its elegant, vertical proportion, is visible from downtown Austin, whether one is approaching from the Lamar Street Bridge by car, or from the Pfluger Bridge on foot.

Pacific Navy in Venice, California by David Hertz FAJA & The Studio of Environmental Architecture

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Article source: David Hertz FAJA & The Studio of Environmental Architecture

This private residential compound sits on 3 large lots at the intersection of Pacifc Ave. and Navy St. which is the first street into Venice from Santa Monica, as such this project serves as a gateway to Venice. Because the intersection is very noisy the concept was to use large tilt up concrete slabs to create an acoustical and visual wall to reinforce the edge condition between the street and the residence.

Shirley Road in Groton, Massachusetts by LABhaus Design GmbH

Article source: LABhaus Design GmbH

The project is a compound in Groton, MA. The project started with a 1930’s Sears kit house set upon 1.4 gently rolling hectare overlooking substantial preserves about an hour outside of Boston. While charmingly renovated, the existing structure offered only very small-scale spaces which couldn’t really accommodate family and guests looking for escape to the countryside.
