Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Article source: MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

A new sculptural glass pavilion is the key element for the makeover of this 1970’s office tower, which includes the lobby, retail space and the exterior facade. The dynamic and transparent form provides a dramatic entrance that is intended to transform the perception of the entire building. It creates a highly visible identity and has become a recognizable landmark within the business district. As well as the new pavilion, the project includes stone cladding to the exterior, a new lobby and additional retail space.

Santa Barbara Bowl in California by HANDEL ARCHITECTS LLP

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Article source: HANDEL ARCHITECTS LLP

Originally built in 1935 by the Federally funded Works Progress Administration (WPA) program, this 4,500-seat outdoor amphitheater is located in a dramatic ravine overlooking Santa Barbara. It provides a full range of music shows, including classical, pop, country-western, blues, jazz and rock and roll. In the 1980’s, changing performance requirements, the impact of amplified sound and traffic, and increased residential density surrounding the amphitheater led the County Parks Department to undertake a master plan to address these challenges. Through an interactive community workshop process, Handel Architects was selected to lead a design team to create a detailed master plan to address each of the major issues. This master plan has served as a blueprint for all subsequent maintenance and operational endeavors, fundraising plans for capital improvements, and also served to minimize ad-hoc changes that had occurred in the past.

Virgin Megastore in California by MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Article source: MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

This project strives to provide a rigorous design for a building type that is sometimes overlooked by serious architectural investigation. It is the first purpose-built structure for the international music retailer, Virgin Records, who needed a strong identifiable architectural image to provide them with a clearly recognizable landmark within the existing urban context. The challenge was to provide them with the dramatic impact they needed whilst overcoming the limitations of a site with a very narrow frontage.
