Barrier Island House in Vero Beach, Florida by Sanders Pace Architecture

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Article source: Sanders Pace Architecture

This project is located within a waterfront neighborhood of modest 1950’s era houses alongside many more recent supersized replacements. Our process began by evaluating the client’s goals with their existing property in order to determine whether or not the existing single family residence on the site could accommodate their needs. After an early visit to the site it was determined that any improvement to the existing residence would require the demolition of the original terrazzo slab on grade, perhaps the property’s best asset.

‘Westchester County Center’ Acoustics Revitalized by WSDG

Friday, November 9th, 2012

Article source: WSDG

An entrepreneur with a wide range of music business interests, Irwin Kornfeld has sparked new awareness for the eighty-year-old Westchester County Center.  A major upgrade of the facility’s acoustics, coupled with a state of the art sound system, has landed the WCC and its new “Pepe Infiniti Concert Series” on the radar of booking agents and performing artists seeking viable venues for tri-state concert dates.  The series’ launch featured The Beach Boys in concert in mid-May, nearly fifty years after their first WCC gig. The Johnny Winter Band and Edgar Winter Group, Boston, Il Volo, Whoopie Goldberg, Aretha Franklin and others are booked through November.

Jaleois a Spanish word that means shindig, fun, racket, hubbub… It’s something positive, festive, good-natured. This is the aim behind the interior design of the new restaurant. What’s more the word jaleo starts with the initial letters of the name José Andrés. So the design of Jaleo is a mixture of the festive spirit and the particular personality of its owner, one of the most daring culinary creators on the planet.

625 Rhode Island Avenue in Washington, DC by Suzane Reatig Architecture

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Article source: Suzane Reatig Architecture

One of the main goals for the Bailey Park Apartments was to provide much needed housing sized for families in the heart of the city. Located steps from the Shaw Metro, the site is tapered, with one short side facing the street and one long side bounded by a public alley. The architect determined that increasing the density would make the most of the downtown location and the site. Working closely with city officials, the site was rezoned to replace four dilapidated townhouses with a 16-unit apartment building.
