Perched atop a ridgeline in the Hollywood Hills, the presence of the Skyline Residence represents an honest approach to creating an environmentally sensitive building without sacrificing beauty nor budget. The pre-existing site presented a challenge in terms of constructability, the client presented the challenge of limited allowable expenses, and the architect was resilient to marginalize beauty and originality. The requirements of an architecture to satisfy each of these constraints are found in that which is constant and continuous at a given site.

SaA’s work as executive architect for this 45,000 sq ft tenant improvement corresponded with Pinterest’s rapid expansion, including the continued evolution of the company’s ethos and character. In many ways, the building was seen by the client as a blank architectural canvas to be curated by the employees, much as their web presence supports the gathering and organization of images into a virtual pin board. Through a series of Make-A-Thons, the Pinterest folks moved in and hacked the space, immediately making it their own.

The move back into the heart of the city has been embraced by San Francisco, with Pinterest part of a broader trend for many tech companies. The adaptive reuse of an older building fits with the DIY, collector spirit of the company.

The site for this project is located on a cul-de-sac which creates a tapered lot manifesting in a fairly small curved front yard lot line, while the rear yard of the site opens to the canyon and city views. Two distinct conditions emerged from the design; from the rear yard the house is seen as part of a series of horizontal volumes which merge with the terrain of the landscape, while the front yard presence of the house is distinctly more urban, vertical, and formal. This dichotomy between the front and back zones of the property is emphasized by the articulation of two vertical walls that are folded into roof surfaces to create a backdrop anchoring the horizontal terrain.

Metal Sales Manufacturing Corporation provides 9,400 square feet of sleek roof and wall panels for the new Shandon Rest Area in Shandon, CA.
The Shandon Rest Area is located between the Central Coast and the San Joaquin Valley on Highway 46. Originally built in the 1970s, Shandon’s facilities had become outdated and costly to maintain – no longer meeting the needs of its 1.5 million annual visitors. To address these needs and to update the disabled access of the decades-old facility, officials announced the rest area would be rebuilt from the ground up.

The Kearsarge Residence is a major renovation of the 1968 M.G. Residence by the Romanian-American mid-century modernist architect Haralamb H. Georgescu.
Located on a flag lot in Brentwood, California, the site for the Kearsarge Residence has a unique character as a forest within the city. The challenges of working on a historic architectural home is one filled with a unique set of choices. These choices arise from questioning what makes the house important as well as what elements deserve to be preserved and what can be changed to make the house comfortable and livable for years to come.
