Shifting Tapestry in Boston, USA by Ground Inc

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Article source: Ground Inc

A project that delights in the textural complexity of simple materials.

This design for the garden of a single family residence responds to the challenges of a small urban site by using the textural and ephemeral qualities of the materials to breathe life into the space. The spatially simple design creates outdoor living spaces with a sense of privacy, while the interplay of the materials – light, foliage, and grain – creates a rich layer of experience that shifts over time.

Residential Loft in Boston, Massachusetts by The Galante Architecture Studio

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

The goal of this project was to divide the space into a definitive function, yet retain the feeling of an open plan loft. A series of “L” shaped bars were inserted to organize the space. Visual unity is maintained by reducing form and color to bare essentials, and breaking this mold only when required by program. Continuous light maple built in cabinets provide a constant rhythm throughout the loft. Darker idiosyncratic cabinets are inserted into this baseline to provide definition.
