MUSEUM OF WISCONSIN ART (MOWA) IN West Bend by HGA Architects and Engineers

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: HGA Architects and Engineers

The new Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) in West Bend, Wisconsin, designed by Jim Shields, FAIA, Project Lead Designer at HGA Architects and Engineers (HGA), achieves a subtle balance between architecture as art and architecture as a neutral setting for art. The crisp, triangular geometry of the 31,000-square-foot, two-level museum moves from a glass-enclosed entrance at the southwest corner to a wedge-resolving point at the opposite end, where a glass curtain wall reveals an interior stairwell. Clad in custom, horizontal, modular fiber-cement panels in three shades of white, the surface of the building projects a soft and gentle variegation of color.

CARRBORO HOUSE in North Carolina by CUBE design + research

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: CUBE design + research

The client asked us to create a home that was modern, green, affordable, and designed for aging. The property is a beautifully wooded half-acre lot in Carrboro. We responded with single-level living that builds in accessibility clearances and easily adapted amenities for aging. To keep the home affordable, we kept the plan compact and simplified the details. The form and planning of the house shift to mediate privacy from neighbors and views of nature at every turn.

HORTON RESIDENCE in Sebastopol, California by Design Blitz

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: Design Blitz

The Horton Residence started o! as a simple, rectangular 500 sq ft addition to the owner’s existing 600 sq ft home in west Sebastopol, CA. Originally built in 1942 as a summer home for the family, the house now serves as the client’s primary residence. From the outset it was clear that this project had the potential to be something more than a simple addition, and that the whole house could be transformed into something very special. Among redwoods and in a stunning location adjacent to a seasonal creek, the project o!ered the opportunity to celebrate its setting and create a peaceful retreat for the owners.

Storefront Loft in New York by Messana O’Rorke Architects

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: Messana O’Rorke Architects

An unforgiving block in the Far East of the East Village located in what is called Alphabet City provided the location for a unique living space for an alternative couple and their collection of art and contemporary furniture. The existing space located on the ground floor separated itself from the life of the street with an ominous brick wall having only two very small square windows allowing very little natural light to find it’s way into the space. Prior to our project, the space was used as an art gallery and various other functions including housing monks and their pet Lama.
