Fall House in CA by FOUGERON ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: FOUGERON ARCHITECTURE

This three-bedroom home, on Big Sur’s spectacular south coast, is anchored in the natural beauty and power of this California landscape. Our design strategy embeds the building within the land, creating a structure inseparable from its context. The site offers dramatic views: a 250-foot drop to the Pacific Ocean both along the bluff and the western exposure. Yet it demands a form more complex than a giant picture window.

20th St. Offices in Santa Monica, CA by Belzberg Architects

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Article source: Belzberg Architects

Abstract

The 20th Street Offices serve as creative working studios for three design firms in Santa Monica, California.  Located on a 7,500 square foot lot in one of the United States top ‘green’ cities, they consist of approximately 6,800 sf of studio space at two stories with a mezzanine. Santa Monica earned this ranking with its extensive Green Building Program and public policies.  However, the prominence of sustainable initiatives in Santa Monica doesn’t end with policy; an extensive network of environmentally conscious citizens and business owners, of which the architects of the 20th Street Offices are a member, propels it forward.  It is the firm’s desire, along side of its latest trajectories in architectural design and theory, to responsibly lead its fellow citizens, colleagues, and clients in green building initiatives and made no exception when designing their own offices as they pursued a LEED-NC Gold rating.

Skyline Residence in Los Angeles, Ca by Belzberg Architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Belzberg Architects

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.

Pinterest in San Francisco, CA by Schwartz and Architecture

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source:  Schwartz and Architecture

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.

Mandeville Canyon Residence in Los Angeles, CA by Griffin Enright Architects

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Article source: Griffin Enright Architects

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.
