Cliff Dwelling in Austin, Texas by Specht Harpman

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: Specht Harpman

Suspended on a narrow limestone ridge halfway down a cliff overlooking Lake Austin, this home builds upon the frame of an existing 1970s-era structure. The renovation re-works the processional sequence into and through the house making it habitable for an elderly couple, enhancing engagement with the dramatic site, and incorporating elements that have personal importance to the owners.

Weleda North America by Specht Harpman

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: Specht Harpman

Specht Harpman designed Weleda’s North American headquarters within the shell of a 19th-century factory along the Hudson River. One primary design intention was to expose and highlight the raw beauty of the original heavy timber structure, its brick walls, and large windows. Our interventions respect the character of the original building, while clearly registering a new use.

West Lake Hills in Texas by Specht Harpman

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: Specht Harpman

This house positions itself as a backdrop to a spectacular site, with a dense canopy of trees in front and steep ravine in back. Our goal was to preserve all of the site’s large live oaks while creating a sense of transparency that allows the landscape to flow through the living spaces.

Rakafot school grounds in Kiryat Bialik, Israel by BO LANDSCAPE

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Article source: BO LANDSCAPE

About two weeks after construction was complete on the Rakafot School, for which we were the landscape architects, and the opening of the school year, we received a surprising phone call: “I wanted your opinion on adding frogs to the school’s ‘Winter Pond.’ It was the agriculture teacher “We received complaints about mosquitoes, and it seems to be the right way to stop them is by using frogs. Besides, it will be wonderful to hear their croaks along with the children’s loud and cheerful voices.” “It’s a great idea,” we hastened to assure her, with a fantastic inner feeling, “yes, that works.”

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Article source: TAAV Arquitectos

The building is located within a manufacturing plant, in that context; it situates a testing laboratory and an exhibition space.

The design seeks to establish an emphasis between the new construction and the existing facilities. The result is a solid and sleek object that distinguishes from its spatial context by the use of a dynamic geometry.
