We had to solve an a typical project, a design center, where creativity and art should be blended and be offered to the user. The shops should have the same condition, without creating differences between the front and back. After solving the first floor with two locals, we made in the second and third floor 8 offices or locals arranged beside a yard with domestic scale.

John W. Olver Transit Center in Greenfield by Charles Rose Architects Inc

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Article source: Charles Rose Architects Inc

Situated in historic Greenfield’s business district and constructed of traditional materials that complement the town’s stately brick buildings, the John W. Olver Transit Center represents a significant technological departure from the past: With its dramatically limited emissions, it anticipates the future and President Obama’s executive order requiring that all new federal buildings achieve net-zero by 2030. Embedded in the building’s design are numerous strategies for energy conservation and generation. For example, the textured brick cladding the western side is a respectful nod to Greenfield’s past, but its main purpose is green: a high-tech strategy in managing the building’s exposure to afternoon sun. In parts, the brick dissolves and the façade becomes a kind of screen; these patterns control the amount of heat entering the building’s interior in summer and winter.

McGeever Building Rehabilitation Isla Vista in California by Acme Architecture

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Keith Rivera, AIA

This rehabilitation of a modest 1960’s commercial building brings new life to a neglected structure in this coastal college town adjacent to the University of California Santa Barbara. Facade improvements included new fiber cement cladding inspired by retail barcodes and energy efficient storefronts with irregularly patterned mullions. Along the sidewalk raised outdoor dining patios were created with metal enclosures that mimic the storefronts. Inside, mechanical systems were updated along with and access for the disabled. Now the open facades entice passerby while the outdoor dining activities and rhythmic patterns of the new facade enliven the downtown streetscape.
