The Vault in Phoenix, Arizona

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

Article source: WSDG

A successful decade behind the console of his Manhattan-based Vault Mastering Studio, convinced engineer, Nathan James that he could shift his growing family back to their hometown of Phoenix and maintain a thriving business. Having developed a strong client base ranging from rockers like The Fray to jazz vocalist, Gretchen Parlato and comic Louis C.K., James was confident his skills would continue to attract interesting national projects.  After establishing temporary quarters with a local mastering house, James’ next order of  business was to retain the Walters-Storyk Design Group to create his new studio.

Desert H House in Marana, Arizona by Secrest Architecture

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Secrest Architecture

Desert H House Is A 3500 s.f. residence, designed by Tucson based architects Secrest Architecture in Marana, Arizona. The residence is to be built in phases containing 3 bedrooms, 4 baths and one detached studio/guestroom, to be located in Marana, Arizona near Dove Mountain and the Gallery Golf course. The house is a study of taking a smaller residence and creating exterior spaces that become extensions of both the interior and the surrounding desert. The exterior spaces take advantage of the desert climate and lifestyle, adding to the livable square footage of the house and strengthening the connectivity of the house to the desert landscape. The floor plan takes on the shape of an H with a large great room in the center flanked by wings on each side.

Levin Residence in Arizona by Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Article source: Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Three simple volumes hover above the desert, responding to the challenges of a sloping site and to an ethic of building with minimal disruption to the natural environment. The available buildable area was bifurcated by a minor drainage-way, which inspired the architects to leave the cars behind and link the parking area to the main house by a bridge that allows rainwater and wildlife to flow beneath it.

Flynn Residence in Paradise Valley, Arizona by Colab Studio, llc

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Article source: Colab Studio, llc

A single physician purchases a home because of the site’s amazing views. The house is somewhat “modern”, but contains several physical features the owner would rather weren’t there. The space does not flow well with each use separated by three main elements: a sunken bar; an entertainment center, and a large masonry fireplace. There is almost no connection between living spaces and the exterior patio. We begin by removing everything in the way, creating a more open space, better circulation, enhanced functions, and improved views. We provide a three-panel telescoping door to the patio. We add a new exterior patio, pool, and spa. A new exposed laterally bracing membrane in the living room, required to replace the fireplace’s structural function, is designed parametrically utilizing the Owner’s favorite image of a skin cell. She requests the interiors be minimal, clean, and white. We happily oblige.

Article source: Benjamin Hall 

This projection came to life when Mr. Lavance and Benjamin Hall drank a few brew’s at a local pub. Lavance expressed his desire to shad his outdoor BBQ / kitchen. A few napkin sketches later and a real enthusiasm for raw materials that weather and age over time due to the brutal desert sun bearing upon. The high arcing paroblolic steel arcs crest to allow seating behind the counter on the east, while converging to the west to screen the Arizona summer sun.

Yoga Deva in Gilbert, Arizona by blank studio architecture

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: blank studio architecture

Yoga Deva (deva is a Sanskrit word, meaning deity) creates an internal sequence of spaces whose primary impulse is to remove the visitor from the exterior visual environmental conditions in every way. Sited within a commercial condominium complex, the building is surrounded by asphalt parking, minimal planted islands of non-native decorative vegetation, and other buildings that are nearly indistinguishable from one to the next. This new internal environment offers an architectural and sequential chiaroscuro to the external strip-mall type reality and prepares the visitor for practice of inward meditation and contemplation.
