Mood Ring House in Arkansas by SILO AR+D

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

Article source: SILO AR+D 

An architect led design-build project, MOOD RING HOUSE is a low-cost ($80/sf) single family live-work house.

Located in an eclectic neighborhood in walking distance from the city center of Fayetteville, Arkansas, the design is born out of a mix of site limitations and opportunities, economic constraints, and programmatic requirements. With a skewed alignment to the lot lines, the siting preserves two established monumental Catalpa trees, orienting the house to take advantage of north light from a clerestory, and south and west facing views of the immediate forest and the distant mountains, all while fronting the main intersection near the property. Work functions are consolidated at grade, with a majority of living spaces above. The small base minimizes the built footprint to preserve existing trees and reduce foundation costs, which are at a premium in the unstable Arkansas soil. The cantilevers, in concert with the dramatically sloping site, give unique views of the natural landscape to each living space, creating a private enclave amidst the tree canopy. Beneath overhangs are a carport on the west-facing front and an outdoor room on the east-facing rear.  The shed roof, when coupled with an inverted truss profile, floods the interior volume with natural light.

Srygley Pool House in Springdale, Arkansas by Marlon Blackwell Architects

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Article source: Marlon Blackwell Architects 

The Srygley Pool House is located within a suburban neighborhood that offers little variation from the typical single-family house model.  The simple form of the building strikes a bold pose within this landscape.  The pool house is wrapped in subdued cedar siding, allowing the seemingly foreign form to coexist with the surrounding brick and cedar residences.

CALS Children’s Library in Little Rock, Arkansas by Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Article source: Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects

Referred to as a “community-embedded, supportive learning center,” this library offers not only books, but also a performance space, a teaching kitchen, a greenhouse and vegetable garden, and an arboretum.

The Director of the Library System’s challenge was to create a playground without equipment, where nature and imagination combine to create grand adventures on a six acre natural site in the heart of the capital city.

560 Vinson in Fayetteville, Arkansas by Modus Studio

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Article source: Modus Studio

Empowered by their love of place and a history of previous renovations, the owners of this Mt. Sequoyah property sought a complete transformation for their modest ranch-style home. They came to us for a creative and modern approach to design that would provide natural light and views throughout the project. With deep ties to the surrounding neighborhood, there was also a desire to tastefully censor the adjacent homes without completely severing their connection to this charming community.

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

The Creative Corridor retrofits a four-block segment of an endangered downtown Main Street through economic development catalyzed by the cultural arts rather than Main Street’s traditional retail base. The goal is to structure an identity for the Creative Corridor rooted in a mixed-use working and living environment anchored by the arts.

Fayetteville 2030: Transit City Scenario in Fayetteville, Arkansas by University of Arkansas Community Design Center

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Article source: University of Arkansas Community Design Center

As a complement to Fayetteville’s 2030 City Plan, a 2030 Transit City Scenario Plan independently models a future based on development of a streetcar system. While city planning is generally future-oriented, scenario planning models specific futures from the insistent exploration of a particular driver through “what if” propositions.
