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.

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.

In a world where dreams come easy, but are tough to fulfill, producer/songwriter Jon Leidersdorff has caught a golden ring.  Committed to building a cohesive infrastructure for the music scene in his hometown, Leidersdorff discovered an abandoned warehouse in downtown Asbury Park, and envisioned it as a multi-purpose center for a collective of music business locals. Investing his own savings and securing a Small Business Association (SBA) loan from the local Asbury Park Community Bank, Leidersdorff called the Walters-Storyk Design Group to create his Lakehouse Recording Studios as the lynchpin for the complex.

The two-story brick building on the corner of West Broadway and N. Moore Street lies at the edge of the TriBeCa West Historic District. The 1870s-era structure itself was singled out for preservation on account of its distinctive corbelled brick work, prominent location, unusual acute plan, low massing, and multitude of French- and double-hung windows.

Residence in Chelsea by Gage/Clemenceau Architects

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Article source: Gage/Clemenceau Architects

This renovation project, for a small apartment renovation in Manhattan came with numerous challenges. The greatest, perhaps was an extremely limited space. In any small space the walls and furnishings are close together— and, Gage / Clemenceau Architects capitalized on this fact by recognizing that if things are close together –they can be easily touched.
