Juniper Networks is a provider of networking solutions headquartered in Sunnyvale, California. For an office in New Jersey, Juniper leased 16,000 square feet in a large office park thirty minutes outside of New York City. The space needed to serve as a showroom and collaborative center for the company’s east coast clients and partners, so it was crucial that it express the company’s unique and innovative culture.

Little Red House is a six story brick building in Nolita (NY), used in the late 19th century as the original Brewster & Co. carriage factory and the center of America`s most important industry, horse-drawn vehicles. Converted in 2005 to residential units at the upper floors and to commercial space at the ground floor, the original factory has been transformed into luxury condos facing the intersection of Soho, Chinatown, Little Italy and the lower East Side.

Libraries today serve as gathering places, community centers, and cafes. We need to stop viewing libraries as sacred temples of reading and research and more as a collective gathering place of people, ideas, events, and resources; a place that incites imagination and satisfies curiosity – a veritable flowering of culture. With a form that evokes the Oklahoma Rose, this library has a multi-layered skin that passively filters light, sound, and visitors to the library. These ‘petals’ diffuse the light entering the library, reducing solar heat gain and providing excellent reading light.

At the extension of the axis of the fifth avenue, pier museum becomes the ending of the urban space above the sea. The typology of building expresses the conversion and interaction of spatial energy. Simulating the natural growth, along the view toward the seascape in distance, the structure stretch from the beach end to the sea, converts the city space formed by street to a floating seascape terrace, planar pier evolutes to an organic structure, and provides the free path of promenade above the sea level.

The extension of the primary and secondary school in San Piero a Sieve is located very close to the city of Florence.
The building consists of 630 square meters of new surfaces that will host the laboratories, the dean’s office, the offices for the scholastic staff, and an auditorium that works as an all-purpose space. Rooms and the gym will still be in the old buildings, built during the Sixties, and the new construction had also to connect to them.

With these two proposals for a bar in the East Village in Manhattan, we employed a striking silhouette on the faÃ§ade to bring presence to the space on the street. With House Bar, we used painted, perforated MDF panels to continue the house profile on the interior, which terminates in a DJ booth at the end of the room. Lighting filters through the perforations to provide ambient illumination.

The site for this five bedroom house is located in Solduno, an old village with traditional stone clad roofs, close to Locarno, Switzerland. The amazing setting between the mountains and the lake gives the site a clear orientation with the main views towards Ascona and the lake “Lago Maggiore” to the front, and the steep mountains to the back.
