Clea House in San Diego, California by Nakhshab Development & Design, Inc.

 
September 11th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Nakhshab Development & Design, Inc.

Designed, engineered and built by boutique San Diego firm Nakhshab Development & Design (NDD), the LEED Gold-certified Clea House, although just minutes from downtown San Diego, is set on a serene Mission Hills canyon slope. This mid-century modern-inspired single family home complements its surroundings and preserves the existing site terrain with a seamless cantilever design.  Elegantly perched on a three-story access column that encases an elevator, a stairway and one “bonus” room per floor, the nearly 4,000 square-foot Clea House functions primarily as a single-level residence in which large open rooms and outdoor spaces flow together with nature prominently on display throughout the home.

TRIBECA NEW YORK N. MOORE STREET DUPLEX by Barker Freeman Design Office

 
September 11th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office 

In this project, two apartments on the 10th and 11th floors of a condo conversion in Tribeca were combined vertically to create a duplex that functioned like a house, with breathtaking north- and east-facing views of the midtown skyline. The owners’ original apartment on the 11th floor became an open living room/kitchen/dining room space with a separate office and family room. The material palette is light and reflective with a variety of neutral textures inserted as focal points. High-gloss lacquered kitchen cabinets reflect the northern light and views into the space. The maple floors throughout were bleached to bring them out as a light textured ground to unify the living spaces. At the entry, two walls at right angles were painted a steel gray to provide depth and focus to the living space. At the stair, a double-height wall of rough-cut tile provides visual interest and sectional continuity between the floors. The stairs were conceived as floating horizontal planes captured between glass surfaces and supported along a center steel spinal stringer. The landing incorporates a bench that perfectly frames a view of the Empire State Building through the adjacent window. The lower level was partitioned off to maximize functionality and privacy. The bathrooms are grouped against the building core, and the central hallway leads to an eggplant-hued plane that redirects the path toward the master suite on one side and a light-filled corner playroom on the other, from which the two children’s bedrooms can be accessed.

NIIT University Dining Hall Extension project is a seemingly modest 7000sq ft expansion of the existing campus dining facility caching to around 370 students. However, the buildings pivotal location in the master plan, as well as, the act of negotiating the shift in the landform, offered an opportunity to create a multilayered insertion. Set in the hot, arid outpost of Neemrana district, the project also set out to achieve a contemporary yet sustainable expression and one that reinforces a sense of community.

Casa Los Diamantes in Guatemala City by Lavagnino Arquitectos

 
September 9th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Lavagnino Arquitectos

The design process for Casa Los Diamantes can be interpreted as a response to its context, the site proposed a certain orientation and form in order to gain more space and enjoy the forest view. It was our interest to combine the aesthetic lines and details of the colonial style with a contemporary space distribution. The house is organized from circular and double height foyer, communicating both stories and providing natural lighting and ventilation. To emphasize this space as the buildings core, the floor was accentuated with a floral pattern and integrated to the interior garden that provides light to the second story. We used white in all the surfaces to maintain the purity of the shapes, emphasizing details with granite and wood (walnut). As a result, the house responds to its formal predisposition without compromising the interior space and creating a dialogue between the architecture and its surroundings.
