Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: Sven Lavine Architecture

What seems like a pretty unassuming little bed/bath remodel located in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights was actually one of our tougher projects. The owners had a couple challenging goals:

The first one was to fit a legal bathroom into one side of their master bedroom, which is located in the vaulted roof of their Victorian without adding any dormers or expansions.

Mandeville Canyon Residence in Los Angeles, CA by Griffin Enright Architects

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Article source: Griffin Enright Architects

The site for this project is located on a cul-de-sac which creates a tapered lot manifesting in a fairly small curved front yard lot line, while the rear yard of the site opens to the canyon and city views. Two distinct conditions emerged from the design; from the rear yard the house is seen as part of a series of horizontal volumes which merge with the terrain of the landscape, while the front yard presence of the house is distinctly more urban, vertical, and formal. This dichotomy between the front and back zones of the property is emphasized by the articulation of two vertical walls that are folded into roof surfaces to create a backdrop anchoring the horizontal terrain.
