Moraga Residence in California by Jennifer Weiss Architecture

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Article source: Jennifer Weiss Architecture

This interior architectural remodel transformed an existing awkward, dark, ranch house into a modern, light and view filled space – with a limited budget.   With strategic moves, the interior architecture was transformed.   The plan was rationalized:  the kitchen was almost tripled in size; the plan was made efficient; an entry way was gained by creatively modifying a hallway;  relocating the laundry area created room for a new office, created privacy for the powder room, and allowed for a much needed storage wall for the children.   Exterior windows and doors were replaced with wider, taller, stained wood openings.   Phase II includes work to the exterior architecture of the house and began in the fall of 2013.

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

New York, NY  — Studio Daniel Libeskind has just unveiled the design for a residential building in Berlin that, upon completion in 2015, is expected to brighten the already emerging neighborhood of Chausseestrasse.  With large angular windows designed to catch maximum light, canted walls, and a metallic-coated ceramic façade, the 107,000 sq. ft. (10,000 m2) Chausseestrasse 43 occupies the corner of a block in central Berlin. Says the architect: “Even as my studio is often called upon to design skyscrapers these days, I continue to love to build homes, the basic unit of human life.”

747 Wing House in Malibu by David Hertz Architects

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Article source: David Hertz Architects

This project exists on a 55-acre property in the remote hills of Malibu with unique topography and panoramic views looking out to a nearby mountain range, a valley, and the Pacific Ocean with islands in the distance. In searching for inspiration, I imagined a roof structure that would allow for a un-obstructed view of the mountain range and distant views.The client, a woman, requested curvilinear, feminine shapes for the building.

Friday, December 13th, 2013

Article source: John Douglas Architects

This 1975 performing arts center was one of the most notable projects designed by the late Arizona architect Bennie Gonzales, FAIA, who also designed Scottsdale’s signature municipal structures, including the city hall and main library, which are linked to the arts center by the park-like Scottsdale Civic Center. Gonzales was known for his simple, pure forms that echoed both classic Southwestern and Native-American architectural themes. Gonzales designed the 100,000-square-foot arts center to include a large main theater, a smaller, secondary theater, gallery space, offices and a vast central atrium.

Article source: Hodgetts + Fung

Acoustic clarity and precision were governing principals for the design of this recital space and outdoor stage for the Masters Program in music at the California Institute of the Arts. Sited at the gateway to the 1970’s era campus, the project serves a multitude of purposes, for which acoustics, structural design, materials, and symbolic presence were integrated to produce a building which was conceived as a highly tuned instrument for musical performance.

Fleck Hall St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas by Andersson-Wise Architects

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Article source: Andersson-Wise Architects

Fleck Hall, a functional, flat-topped, “concrete shoebox” efficiently built in 1958 to serve as St. Edwards University’s science building, was slated for demolition when the new John Brooks Williams Natural Science Center opened in fall 2006. But architect Arthur Andersson convinced administrators that Fleck Hall was worth saving. The main selling point: Fleck’s lasting, adaptable structure, a defined and consistent concrete grid.

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.
