Apartment Design in Vardanants, Armenia by ITHAKA – Architecture and design

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Article source: ITHAKA – Architecture and design

The apartment was designed for a young family with a small child.

The original design of the apartment had a number of serious imperfections. The apartment had a lot of dark rooms and unused spaces. While creating the interior architecture these defects have been possibly removed. As a result the dark hall area became smaller, lost spaces have been reduced.

Muelle Kay Restaurant in Yucatán, México by Workshop

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

Article source: Workshop 

Muelle Kay is a new seafood restaurant, located in the city of Merida, Yucatan in southeastern Mexico.  The word Muelle means dock or pier in Spanish and Kay comes from the Mayan word fish. The goal of this project was to create a space that felt like a homey restaurant along the pier, so we decide to use materials that are commonly seen and accessible in local ports such as crates for exhibiting fish, wooden planks , ropes and sailcloth among others in a re interpretative way, achieving a modern yet casual style.

Alpine Street in Pasadena, California by E4 Architects_studio

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Article source:  E4 Architects_studio

Ned Engs, principal and founder of Los Angeles-based E4 Architects, recently completed a renovation and addition for a light post and beam mid-century modern house originally designed in 1954 by Pasadena firm Nyberg &Bissner Architecture & Engineering. Originally known as the Sechler House, the open and airy cruciform plan and design presented E4 with the unique opportunity to work with a mid-century classic.

By taking advantage of the existing design language E4 was able to create a design that is  contemporary and adventurous yet sensitive to context. This was important for the historical character of the original house and the neighborhood—there is a Green & Green home right across the street.

E4’s extensive renovation and second story addition sought to highlight and complement the original home’s clean and efficient spaces, structure, and finishes. The primary strategy for the added second floor was to highlight the cruciform layout of the house and the dramatic sweeping roof gables. The light-filled addition, a painting studio for the client, was thus conceived of as the fifth “living gable” to complement the original design’s four prominent clerestory gables. With the original Nyberg &Bissner design, the dramatic sweeping roof seems to fly above the house. In similar fashion, E4’s addition, utilizing a light tube steel structure and glass, appears to float above the original house. “It’s a light touch,” says Engs. “We wanted to do something that would be more than just a matching addition.

The result is a singular house that, while retaining the spirit and character of the original, also builds upon it and adds new layers with up-to-date systems, materials, and spaces. The original clerestories became the inspiration to enhance the intrinsic Los Angeles indoor-outdoor aesthetic and functionality. A sliding glass wall seemingly dematerializes the house on its garden side. The front door was widened and hung on off-center pivots to complement an existing large picture window in the living room. The second story addition presents seamless butt-joined corner glazing and brings in natural light to illuminate the new floating” steel and wood stairs.

Through an interesting sequence of events, this also became the story of how two architects, spanning different generations, came to be connected through their experiences with one house and the continuing legacy of mid-century Los Angeles modernism and its relevance to contemporary architectural practice.

Soon after E4’s redesign was complete, the son of Harold Bissner, Jr., partner on the original 1954 design, saw the photographs of Susanne Hayek online and emailed her: “Wonderful photography and nice updating on the part of Mr. Engs. I’ll pass this onto my dad who continues to practice at age 87! Nice to see some homes modernized as opposed to torn down.

Once the connection was made, Ned Engs, principal and founder of E4, reached out to Mr. Bissner and they arranged to meet. As they walked the house together in March Mr. Bissner turned to Engs and said, “You did a very nice job.”

I realized he hadn’t seen the home in decades,” said Engs. “He shared thoughts on his design and memories of his career. It was truly enlightening.
