Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

Article source: Hufft Projects

Representing the second take on the originally proposed “Bent House”, the “Bent and Sliced House” incorporates the original concept of bending the home to accommodate the curving slope of the site. Furthermore, the idea of slicing and unfolding the home in a manner similar to Japanese Origami is introduced to create clerestories allowing opportunities for daylighting and natural ventilation.

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.
