Along a coastal main street in southern Honolulu, Hawaii, a large shopping plaza is remodeling its three, street level entryways that access its underground shops. As specified in the original design, all balustrades are curved as each staircase has flare characteristics, which in turn, gives the openings a complimentary circular nature.

Lautner House in the Hollywood Hills by NEW THEME

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

Article source: NEW THEME

The restoration of this mid-century John Lautner home included a reconsideration of living spaces and bedroom areas, which led to the fabrication of unique furniture pieces and installations that brought back the distinctiveness of the home’s original architecture. Interior spaces were reduced to an essential palette of white and wooden tones, emphasizing both light and transparency in a home that looks out upon Studio City and further out to the San Gabriel Mountains. The furniture built by NEW THEME seeks to express a contemporary perspective on classic ‘60s mod design in terms of the pieces built for the bedroom, living room and kitchen, dining areas.

Kearsarge Residence in Los Angeles, CA by Kurt Krueger Architect

Friday, October 18th, 2013

Article source: Kurt Krueger Architect

The Kearsarge Residence is a major renovation of the 1968 M.G. Residence by the Romanian-American mid-century modernist architect Haralamb H. Georgescu.

Located on a flag lot in Brentwood, California, the site for the Kearsarge Residence has a unique character as a forest within the city.  The challenges of working on a historic architectural home is one filled with a unique set of choices. These choices arise from questioning what makes the house important as well as what elements deserve to be preserved and what can be changed to make the house comfortable and livable for years to come.
