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.

This new public school for 500 students is located in a tough South Los Angeles neighborhood almost directly under the flight path into LAX and adjacent to the very busy 105 Century freeway. The design was influenced by the New Orleans architects Curtis and Davis who designed and built many schools in the early 1950s in Louisiana. Their designs adapted to the harsh southern climate without using air conditioning, creating sustainable light filled and poetic spaces for kids to learn.

Not a Pavilion
Our proposal aims to fully exploit what we recognize as the most fundamental aspect underlying the project: the temporal use of the pavilion as a large outdoor event space. Due to its lack of programming, The conventional graduation pavilion suffers immediately after its purpose has been met, transforming from a place of spectacle to an abandoned vessel. If another pavilion is to be built, the scale of the project demands that it should not exist for a single usage, rather, it should become an icon that attracts public events from the surrounding community. We believe that if executed correctly, the pavilion could potentially activate a node within the downtown area.

In San Francisco fashion 1098 Harrison has been past home to a church, disco, and print shop. Atlassian is proud to add software to the legacy. Situated in the heart of San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood, Atlassian’s new workplace is more of an urban hub than the typical (albeit amusing) dot-com environment found in Silicon Valley. Having an international presence in the United States, Australia, and The Netherlands, Atlassian’s offices have been strategically located in dense urban areas. Atlassian’s industry leadership in enterprise software puts it in a category of growth and expansion during a time of economic recession; the need for new digs is the result of robust recruitment of a new generation of business software innovators.
