Techshed in Foster City, CA by Garcia Tamjidi Architecture Design

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Article source: Garcia Tamjidi Architecture Design

A home improvement marketplace technology company, this open and collaborative work environment was designed with a balance of open office work benches, and spaces for meetings, meditation, play and private phone calls. A gated area with lockers for personal storage encourages bicycle commuting and use of the Bay Trail along the edge of the San Francisco Bay. Techshed’s brand is expressed with an impactful punch of brand color and in the form of the plywood sheds that house meeting and meditation rooms. An open Café with a robust audio visual system doubles as an all hands meeting and presentation space.

Flip House Wisconsin in San Francisco by Fourgeron Architecture

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: Fourgeron Architecture

Like many San Francisco homes, this one poorly integrated its many levels with each other and with its sloping topography and solar orientation. Reversing its reading, we recast the back of the house as its primary façade with a faceted, custom-built glass wall. Divided into three vertical panels that push in and out, this dynamic prism brings animating light and spectacular views to the communal living spaces, now placed at the rear. Bedrooms were flipped to the front.

MANDEVILLE CANYON in Brentwood, California by Whipple Russell Architects

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Article source: Whipple Russell Architects

This horse ranch in Brentwood, California is a livable romantic blend of contemporary and Mediterranean architectural sensibilities. The house was originally created for two artists, husband and wife; one an architect turned director, another, a writer and sommelier. Both were very passionate about every detail that had gone into the creation of all their living spaces; a restoration in Italy and a loft in New York City.

Flynn Residence in Paradise Valley, Arizona by Colab Studio, llc

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Article source: Colab Studio, llc

A single physician purchases a home because of the site’s amazing views. The house is somewhat “modern”, but contains several physical features the owner would rather weren’t there. The space does not flow well with each use separated by three main elements: a sunken bar; an entertainment center, and a large masonry fireplace. There is almost no connection between living spaces and the exterior patio. We begin by removing everything in the way, creating a more open space, better circulation, enhanced functions, and improved views. We provide a three-panel telescoping door to the patio. We add a new exterior patio, pool, and spa. A new exposed laterally bracing membrane in the living room, required to replace the fireplace’s structural function, is designed parametrically utilizing the Owner’s favorite image of a skin cell. She requests the interiors be minimal, clean, and white. We happily oblige.
