Green Dot Animo Leadership High School in South Los Angeles by Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

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.

League of Shadows in Los Angeles, CA by P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S

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.

Atlassian Offices in San Francisco, CA by Studio Sarah Willmer Architecture

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Article source:  Studio Sarah Willmer Architecture

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.

Vista Del Valle in Sonoma,CA by Sean Bailey

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Article source:  Sean Bailey

Vista Del Valle is a 4,400 square feet house in the Sonoma hills that articulates modern forms, site informed design, and soft clean materials. The project is on a steep site with a view out over the valley, with distant views of Mt. Diablo and East Bay. Its multi-axis plan and gently sloped shed roofs create informal active spaces that look modern in form and yet remain soft with light finely-textured stucco and warm clear-grain horizontal cedar siding.
