Williams Residence in Lake Oswego, Oregon by Robert Oshatz Architect

Friday, August 11th, 2017

Article source: Robert Oshatz Architect 

When the original house was built in 1972, it was isolated in the woods. The Williams bought the house in the 1980s. They fell in love with the property but were never able to feel the same way about the exterior of the house. Over the years the area developed into a neighborhood of traditional houses; a style they did not appreciate.

Zucker’s Bagels & Smoked Fish in Manhattan by Ricardo Zurita Architecture & Planning, P.C. (RZAPS)

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Article source: Ricardo Zurita Architecture & Planning, P.C. (RZAPS)

For the purveyor of high-quality, authentic New York City food, their expansion to the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City was an opportunity to create a new bakery and retail flagship. The project is located on two levels in a historic 19th century building on Columbus Avenue around the corner from the fabled Dakota Apartments and Central Park. The design emerged as a celebration of textures and color intended to complement the gastronomic delicacies on display. During the design process, probes revealed long-hidden, original historic architectural elements many which were restored for reuse in the space. These included an eye-catching decorative tin ceiling and beautiful interior cast iron columns. Brick walls were revealed. Outside, cast iron storefront trim and rustic brownstone exterior walls were all uncovered and restored. Modern additions of the design included surfaces and furnishings made of black handcrafted steel and white oak. Black subway tile form the back wall of the service area while the seating area is an oasis of minimalist, crafted lighting and furnishings. The flooring is a sturdy, neutral porcelain tile throughout. The interior includes a gold-leaf mural by the artist David Bender. Located in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District, the project received approval from the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. Most importantly, since its opening, the locale has become a neighborhood destination.
