New Empire City Casino Building in New York by STUDIO V Architecture

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Article source: STUDIO V Architecture

The new building by STUDIO V Architecture at Empire City looks nothing like a typical casino. Evolving government policies are transforming the gaming industry; heightened attention and competition have catalyzed casinos to push the boundaries of design, innovation, and visitor experience. Tim Rooney, whose famed family also owns the Pittsburgh Steelers, approached STUDIO V to create a radical and contemporary new building to stand out among ferocious competition in this burgeoning industry-wide revolution.To re-invent a building type that typically produces themed, single-story, hermetically-sealed boxes, the Empire City Casino expansion uses avant garde architecture, cutting edge materials, and ground-breaking technology to create a fresh, light-filled, and stimulating space.

Avant Chelsea in New York City by 1100 Architect

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Article source: 1100 Architect

The Avant Chelsea, a 40,000-square-foot, twelve-story residential condominium, occupies a tight and challenging site in New York City. The design maximizes the building size allowed within zoning regulations through an unconventional array of setbacks that add bedrooms and exterior terraces to the uppermost four stories. Artful proportioning of a standard window wall system on the street facade balances the scale of the user with that of the building at large.

OZ Residence in Silicon Valley, California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

The first requirement that the Owners, a young couple with two children, expressed was that their new home should have a casual, barefoot feel, like a vacation destination, with strong indoor-outdoor connections. Their 2.8 acre site, with gentle slopes to the south and mature landscaping on all sides was the perfect setting to create a home that would fully engage the beautiful landscape for family living.

Hattiesburg House of Prayer in Mississippi by Suzane Reatig Architecture

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Article source: Suzane Reatig Architecture

The House of Prayer is a new church designed and constructed for a small congregation in Hattiesburg, MS. From the front entry, sanctuary doors open to a light-filled room with polished concrete floors and warm wooden pews. A large, almost ethereal pendant light hangs above the altar and reflects the bright white walls of the sanctuary. The ceiling is comprised of steel joists with track lighting. Large storefront windows sit high above the floor allowing light into the space while still making the room feel private. Crepe myrtle trees can be seen out the rear window.

Jigsaw Residence in Bethesda, Maryland by David Jameson Architect

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

Article source: David Jameson Architect

Recycling a single story suburban house located on a busy corner site, Jigsaw introverts itself in a continuous spatial flow around an open air courtyard carved from the home’s remains. A matrix of spaces is linked by movement through them as storeys merge and spaces relate to each other as they rise and fall in a series of interlocked puzzle-like volumes. Particularity rather than repetition is employed giving a unique three dimensional framework to each space where plan and section respond to program simultaneously.

Exerblast in Manhattan by studioMDA

Article source: studioMDA

Located in a historic industrial loft building in downtown Manhattan, Exerblast is a family-fitness facility that synthesizes interactive technologies and physical obstacles with the use of dynamic spatial organization. The 6,000 square foot space covering two floors is divided into multiple zones that include a rock wall room, a core-strengthening ball room, an open room with surfaces for projected media, a multipurpose, party room, and administrative offices. Connecting all of these elements is a blue, circuit-like painted design called the Power Path, which directs the flow of activities throughout the space.
