CARRBORO HOUSE in North Carolina by CUBE design + research

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: CUBE design + research

The client asked us to create a home that was modern, green, affordable, and designed for aging. The property is a beautifully wooded half-acre lot in Carrboro. We responded with single-level living that builds in accessibility clearances and easily adapted amenities for aging. To keep the home affordable, we kept the plan compact and simplified the details. The form and planning of the house shift to mediate privacy from neighbors and views of nature at every turn.

Art-Palace by TOTEMENT | PAPER

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: TOTEMENT | PAPER

The main task of this project, to our opinion, is creation of a new city contexture resolving a visual conflict between the image of modern European city (with the “Izmailovo” hotel complex constituting a part of it) a new growth (rather interesting to the public and a brand identity of the area) that does not blend in the city situation where original historical and cultural monuments are less sizable and more chamber, rather than the grandiose historical stylization.

HORTON RESIDENCE in Sebastopol, California by Design Blitz

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: Design Blitz

The Horton Residence started o! as a simple, rectangular 500 sq ft addition to the owner’s existing 600 sq ft home in west Sebastopol, CA. Originally built in 1942 as a summer home for the family, the house now serves as the client’s primary residence. From the outset it was clear that this project had the potential to be something more than a simple addition, and that the whole house could be transformed into something very special. Among redwoods and in a stunning location adjacent to a seasonal creek, the project o!ered the opportunity to celebrate its setting and create a peaceful retreat for the owners.
