May 22nd, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Hamilton + Aitken Architects

The Maritime Center was one of two childcare centers built specifically to accommodate mothers working in the nearby Richmond shipyards during World War II. Henry J. Kaiser acquired funding from the Maritime Commission under the Lanham Act to build these centers for his workers (the famous Rosie the Riveters), making the Maritime Center one of the first federally-funded childcare centers in the United States. Built as a temporary structure to fulfill a wartime need, the center remained in continuous operation for over 50 years.

Article source: JY-ARCHITECTS

“What do you expect from us?”

This was the very first question we asked a client at our first meeting. The client wanted to open a local low-end restaurant that would not normally require an architect’s touch.

“I want a restaurant that is extraordinary and unique—like a forest house in the city.”

His answer was very clear.

In developing a NYC flagship site for live and on-demand, indoor spinning classes, the Peloton brain trust recognized the need for a cutting edge video broadcast studio for the streaming element of their visionary program.  Company co-founders, CEO, John Foley, COO, Tom Cortese and Marion Roaman, (an indoor cycling pioneer), engaged Walters-Storyk Design Group for the acoustic and isolation design of a broadcast-quality production facility with studio lighting and systems integration.  The resulting Production Control Room (PCR) and 60-bike TV Studio is a key component of the 8000 square foot complex. Located at 140 West 23rd Street in NYC, Peloton Chelsea also features spa-quality ambience, a refreshment lounge and, a sports fashion retail shop.

The concept of this design arose from the merger of three important aspects: the client’s requirements, integration with the nearby landscape and the local materials to be used.

The attic apartment is situated in an old villa in Bled – a renowned spa town. It was designed for a family as their holiday home.

The apartment is an attic and its square meters yield less living space, so the family decided for an open plan configuration. The apartment was originally designed in the shape of cross-plan.

The apartment is located in a newly built row house in Ljubljana.

Bikini 32 residence and office, Madrid in Spain by hollegha arquitectos

Article source: hollegha arquitectos 

To make a building of 4.75m width and 13m length not look narrow might be impossible. Nevertheless, interiors were supposed to be spacious and generous. Time to rethink traditional systems! So we developed a façade concept that occupies only 18cm and offers perfect insulation for both cold and heat. Columns are visible in the interior.

The relation between in and out is very much perceptible in the whole building. Due to its proportions, you may see the sun rise and set without leaving the room.
