The Hambly House in Ontario, Canada by DPAI Architecture Inc.

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Article source: DPAI Architecture Inc.

Originally built in 1939, the Hambly House is one of only a handful of Art Moderne houses to be found in Ontario. The original building, built for Jack Hambly, is a striking example of streamlined late Art Deco in Hamilton; the flat-roofed building sports an archetypal curved corner with speed-striped stucco walls, nautical-inspired detailing including a porthole window, and a prominent front door surround.

Urban 24 in Chicago, Illinois by Studio Dwell Architects

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Article source: Studio Dwell Architects

Looking like a missing tooth, this project helped to complete a gap in the urban fabric of this intimate residential row house street in Chicago. The row-houses were built in the 1890’s, showing wear and demolition over the years. Infilling this small lot provided challenges for the new residence; to not disturb adjacent 100 year old structures, party wall encroachments and to respect the existing scale of the street. The shoring of the adjacent structures and the house’s new foundations required complex design and construction, including a cantilevered concrete foundation wall to avoid interfering with the adjacent party wall footing.

HERNANDEZ RESIDENCE in Madrid, Spain by Daniel Valle Architects

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

The relationship between parents and children is in flux for the coming years: from total dependency to independency. Then, how do you organize a house and its different rooms if the relationships between family members are constantly shifting?According, the house organizes itself ambiguously between one family nucleus and two independent areas expressed to the exterior by a diagonal cut that divides the cubical mass into two sub-masses.

Student Center Georgetown University in Washington DC by Ikon.5 architects

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Article source: Ikon.5 architects 

The New South Student Center at Georgetown University is a renovation and addition that transforms an existing mid century residence hall into a vibrant new university living room for undergraduate life. Inspired by the unique ‘Hoya Saxa’ (stones) identity of the Georgetown student body, the center creates an experience of study and casual living spaces carved out of interior and exterior stone edifices. The ‘Saxa’ living wall is a stone clad green wall that provides a natural bio-friendly character to the Great Room that overlooks the Potomac and is one of many design features that assist this project in achieving a LEED Gold certification. Inside the ‘Saxa’ living wall are 12 individual wood clad group study rooms with enhanced video display systems and writable glass partition for students to work on projects together or separately. The Riverside Terrace is an outdoor landscaped area that extends the living space of the Great Room outdoors and overlooks the Potomac.
