Located north of Cashmere, Washington, in the Nahahum Canyon, this 1650 square foot two story dwelling is set into the hillside with concrete retaining walls that guide the form of the cabin. Its east west longitudinal axis and generous overhangs are designed to take advantage of solar orientation while maintaining panoramic views. The main entry is a two story room with full height glazing on the north and south walls that frame the most dramatic down-canyon view. An eastern oriented living space and kitchen occupy most of the main floor along with a powder room and utility area located within the hillside portion of the home. The upper floor contains the master suite and guest bedroom/bathroom with a loft style flex space that opens up to the living room below.

CHILD DAY CARE CENTRE in Brussel, Belgium by BUROBILL & ZAmpone architectuur

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Article source: BUROBILL & ZAmpone architectuur

This Child Day Care Center will house 68 children in the center of Brussels. There is limited space available in this building block that also hosts 3 schools, a music academy, after-school care & many more organizations to guide children from the day they enter into Day Care till the day leave school at the age of 18. This project is situated on the first floor of an existing building block. In order to get on this floor there is a concrete path to guide children and parents to the entrance. The same vocabulary of concrete curves is repeated in the terrace on the second floor that serves as external playground for the 68 children of the Day Care Center. In order to limit the weight of the concrete construction a system of modulation of supporting beams of the concrete terrace was designed. This project has been awarded the price of sustainable exemplary building project of the city of Brussels – year 2013 because it is designed to be a very low energy consuming renovation/extension of an existing building.

Modern Coffee in Oakland, California by Arcsine Architecture

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Article source: Arcsine Architecture

Architecture and interior design firm, Arcsine, transformed an existing 900-square-foot split level vacant retail space into Modern Coffee, a popular, local, multi-roaster’s second location in downtown Oakland, aiming to seamlessly convert the space into a contemporary coffee shop. Since the space sits on a significant slope, the design team was challenged with finding a way to configure the coffee shop to maximize space and functionality. The result was the introduction of stairs, creating a split level layout that seamlessly integrates the upper and lower areas of the store. The design team was also tasked with finding unique solutions to place floor drains or hang lighting fixtures as the floors and ceilings are made of thick concrete and beams making it difficult to drill through.

House of Shifting Sands in Massachusetts by Ruhl Walker Architects

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

Sited gently on the lower slope of a dramatic sixty foot high coastal bank and surrounded by miles of undeveloped Cape Cod National Seashore beaches and scrub pines is a warm, modern beach house that is more than just a place to enjoy uninterrupted ocean views and sea breezes. Our clients dreamed of a house that would work equally well as both a year-round family “camp” and also as a “thinking retreat” for collaborating with their colleagues.

Mystic Lake House in Massachusetts by Ruhl Walker Architects

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

Our clients found the perfect location for their dream house on the shores of Mystic Lake, facing a heavily wooded park on the opposite shore and only a short drive from Cambridge and Boston. Alas, there was an existing house on the property, and the house was not actually for sale. However, the stars must have been aligned and their passion prevailed after it turned out that the current owner was actually contemplating a move to Washington, DC. With so few affordable undeveloped lots in suburban Boston, many of our clients are turning to “tear-down’s”, especially given that the more affordable houses are typically in such poor condition.

DAS SWARTZENREADER HAUS in Winchester, Virginia by Reader & Swartz Architects

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Article source: Reader & Swartz Architects

This house was originally built in 1968. It had a 4/12 gable roof, a boxy, conventional floor plan, and a second floor that cantilevered two feet past the first floor. The house sat on the top of a very steep hill, on a small corner lot, within an established neighborhood. Although the house had an amazing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was virtually no way to appreciate it through the minimal number of small windows. The lot dropped 30 feet within its 100-foot depth, helping give the house its great view and vantage point, but also making grading and access difficult. The 8′ ceilings were interrupted by bulkheads, lowering them to 6′-8′ in some rooms.
