The project of this house was developed in two volumes connected by a large open courtyard that takes advantage of the presence of a magnificent tree. The field is elongated with south view so the program distributed the family volume in 3 bedrooms at one end and the guests volume in the other.

Clefs Moiré by Radlab

 
April 14th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Radlab

With the provision of a casual description and partial floor plan of the residential building’s lobby and adjacent networking cafe, Radlab was asked to create an interior installation composed of two slatted walls. Knowing the dimensional constraints of the walls (8’ tall x 14’ long), our design strategy began with a preoccupation in the role of a wall as an architectural tool, fully circumscribed by open, public space, yet capable of creating moments of privacy.

Antara I Corporate Building in Mexico City, Mexico by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

 
April 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos 

The urban renewal triggered by the first phase of the Antara mixed-use development (2006) was one of the single most significant actions in the north-west of Mexico City. It elicited a new urban order that completely changed the profile of the area, increasing the real estate value, promoting densification and attracting capital investment. Maintaining this same outlook, Antara proceeded to develop the second phase of its master plan, divided into two stages: (1) Antara Corporate Building I and (2) Antara Corporate Building II. These adjacent buildings are located on the north-western side of the complex.

Fitzroy Park House in London, England by Stanton Williams Architects

 
April 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Stanton Williams Architects

Stanton Williams was commissioned by a prominent film director and an interior designer to create a new family home in the conservation area of High gate, north London, replacing a late 1950’s house.

The design strategy takes advantage of the sloping site by creating new additional spaces within the lower garden level, above which a series of interlocking sculptural forms emerge, evoking the spirit of a tree house.

1896 Double-Height Courtroom Restoration by Fisher Heck Architects

 
April 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Fisher Heck Architects

What was once two separate courtrooms with adjacent support offices and an intermediate floor separating the two, is now a grand two-story Commissioners Courtroom, restored to its original 1896 creation. In addition to the courtroom restoration, a new stairwell spanning five floors within the courthouse was designed to bring the building up to code. One of the challenging requirements to this courtroom is that it had to serve multiple uses in order to make the room more accommodating throughout the year.

House of Shifting Sands in Massachusetts by Ruhl Walker Architects

 
April 11th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

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

 
April 11th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

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.

SONGBIRD LANE in Frederick County, Virginia by READER & SWARTZ ARCHITECTS

 
April 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: READER & SWARTZ ARCHITECTS

This house was originally a two story, nondescript, 1970’s “farmhouse” with no architectural merit, clad in baby blue vinyl siding. The house had mold problems, and, consequently, its inhabitants had respiratory issues. Despite its pedestrian character and inadequate size, the house did have one thing going for it—it sat on the right place on its site, within a ring of mature trees. Because of its siting, and because the owners were concerned about conserving natural resources, a decision was made not to tear down and relocate the house. Instead, the design parti was to keep the box of the original house as the central core, add two wings which help make outdoor spaces and optimize the sun path, and rethink the building massing.
