Adobe, headquartered 50 miles south in San Jose, established its San Francisco presence when it acquired Macromedia at the end of 2005. Macromedia occupied the historic Baker & Hamilton Building at 601 Townsend Street and the newer 625 Townsend Street next door. Recently, Adobe leased additional space at 410 Townsend Street two blocks away to meet the needs of its growing workforce. Adobe’s new workplace strategy, which was created for their San Jose campus, was implemented at 410 Townsend while providing a unique identity for the space.

Ground at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut by Bentel and Bentel Architects

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source:  Bentel and Bentel Architects

The new ‘Ground’ cafe, at Yale’s Marcel Breuer-designed Becton School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (‘SEAS’), serves not only to create social cohesion among faculty and students of the engineering school, but also to encourage interaction between and among members of other departments in the University. In the design, the firm engaged the unadorned poured-concrete volume of this former seminar room by layering a palette of walnut planks, perforated aluminum, and cleft bluestone over the walls, floor, and ceiling of the space. The original concrete surfaces are intentionally visible through, and are highlighted by, the veils of the material intervention out of respect for Breuer’s unique exploration in his design of the textural possibilities of a single material.

Fashion[ING] Objects in Austin, Texas by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source: Matt Fajkus Architecture

FASHION[ING] OBJECTS is an instrument for space, light, and threshold that creates maximal impact with minimal means by arranging and reconfiguring everyday objects in an unexpected and extraordinary way. It is an original backdrop installation piece designed and fabricated for an the annual premier fashion event in Austin, Texas held in September 2012. Beginning with the simple idea of an Erwin Hauer inspired screen, the intention for the backdrop was to veil the models as they emerged from backstage, to dapple light as well as to convey a sense of depth and movement beyond.
