Carroll House in Venice, California by Dimster Architecture 

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Article source: Chibi Moku 

This renovation of a single family home in the historic Venice Canals presented the opportunity to reimagine the house. The ground floor was reorganized to an open plan, allowing all rooms access to the view and outdoor spaces. A new wood deck fronting the canals includes an open fire pit and custom benches and planters. The deck and ground floor at the same elevation, serving to extend the living room space to the outdoors, accessible through a triple sliding glass door. The upstairs bedrooms are remote and quiet, with the master bedroom enjoying a private deck also overlooking the canals. In re-organizing the floor plan, a new stair was designed, cantilevering from a wall with no apparent structure, further emphasized by the suspended glass guardrail. The home captures the distinct character of the canal district and its unique personality.

Dual House in Venice, California

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Article source: Chibi Moku

The Dual House is a new duplex for two related families, with an emphasis on balancing shared and personal spaces. While appearing to be a single building, two structures are placed back-to-back allowing for private garden entries and a communal roof deck. The garages, bedrooms, and entry are incorporated on the lower level, with a convertible bedroom/office having direct access to the garden.  On the second floor, the directional emphasis shifts to the long alley, highlighting the stairs, views, and available light for the main living spaces along this façade.  Tucked behind this public space are the master bedroom and bath.  The suspended steel stairs are a focal point for both inside and out.

Central Arizona College in Maricopa, Arizona by SmithGroupJJR

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Article source: SmithGroupJJR

Known for its history as a pre-railroad stagecoach town, the town of Maricopa has balanced its agricultural and Native American identities for the past century. Most recently Maricopa, a community 40 miles south of Phoenix, has been chronicled by the New York Times as a bedroom community boom town gone bust. Central Arizona College has made an investment in the community and is betting on its future. This campus represents a glimmer of hope in an area struck by the national recession.

Raisbeck Aviation High School in Washington by bassetti architects

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Article source: bassetti architects

Raisbeck Aviation High School was conceived as a response to Highline School District’s proximity to the aviation industry, a deep desire to give students access to college and engineering professions, and an educational vision that melds hands-on, project-based learning with academic rigor. The new 400-student STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) school enables students to flourish through co-location with the Museum of Flight and immersion in aerospace and aviation. The design supports this program physically, visually, and symbolically with project labs for aircraft and robotics construction, state-of-the-art science labs, classrooms, and a multi-purpose gathering space. Even the image of the school reflects its mission with its streamlined, carefully crafted form, inspired by the leading edge of a wing.

Unable to complete the building the Skows turned to students from University of Colorado Denver and DesignBuidlBLUFF. The students decided to utilize the existing foundation and virtually all of the build kit materials stock piled on site in their design.

The solar rain tree oasis in California by michael jantzen

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Article source: michael jantzen

The Solar Rain Tree Oasis is being developed as a public gathering place pavilion for the drought stricken state of California. The ideal location for these large pre-fabricated steel structures is in a public park, but they can also be placed into any public accessible location. All of the structures are designed to support ten large solar cell arrays that collect energy from the sun and convert it into electricity, which is sent into the local power grid. In addition, each of the structures is formed into a circular shape that is capable of collecting rainwater and directing it into storage containers that are buried under the structures.
