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.

Dihedral House in Boulder, CO by Arch11

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Article source: Arch11

Design strategy:

This modern house designed by Arch11 is a place where the domestic life of a young family weaves with the values of two professional athletes and the outdoors. Where this distinction may separate those roles, lines in this structure seeks to bind and integrate. Anchored on a downtown corner site, this Boulder, Colo. home has an all glass living room and Site-cast, board-formed concrete walls. The latter both moors the building to its site and provides thermal mass to control temperature swings.

The house is organized around crossing dihedral lines–one phenomenal and one tectonic—that shear the interior volumes.

Slip House in London, England by Carl Turner Architects

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

Article source: Carl Turner Architects

Occupying one of four plots forming a gap in a typical Brixton terrace, Slip House constitutes a new prototype for adaptable terraced housing. Three simple ‘slipped’ orthogonal box forms break up the bulk of the building and give it it’s striking sculptural quality. The top floor is clad in milky, translucent glass planks, which continue past the roof deck to create a high level ‘sky garden’. Designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5, it features ‘energy piles’ utilising a solar assisted ground source heat pump creating a thermal store beneath the building. PV’s, a wildflower roof, rain water harvesting, reduced water consumption, mechanical ventilation with heat recovery within an airtight envelope with massive levels of insulation make this one of the most energy efficient houses built in the UK. A prototype brownfield development offering dense, flexible, urban living – the house is a vehicle for in-house research into sustainable design, seamlessly integrating the often conflicting aesthetic requirements of architecture and alternative low energy systems. We are working to develop this model for multiple developments and as affordable housing.
