Kentfield Residence in California by Studio VARA

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

Article source: v2com

When the owners purchased this 1970’s ranch home in Kentfield, Marin County, it was dark, dank, and in danger of sliding down a hill. The interior was dated and needed to be updated to modern standards.

Flower Duplex in Venice, California by MODAL DESIGN

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Article source: MODAL DESIGN 

Located on a tight lot in Venice, California, the Flower Duplex is a union of opposites. Initiated by a local couple who had opposing styles, Modal Design resolved programmatic needs by replacing an existing duplex with a new structure that blended their distinct aesthetics. While the project was fairly straightforward programmatically, aesthetically the task was more challenging as their ideas for their new home were distinct. Hers: a rustic and potentially traditional home that evoked images of aging barns in her home state of Colorado. His: a modern and open space connected to the outdoors.

Amoroso Studio in Venice, California by MODAL DESIGN

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Article source: MODAL DESIGN 

Celebrating a Client’s passion for collecting modern and video art yet supporting her needs for a functional studio and guest house, the Amoroso Studio is a truly inspired multi-functional space: part art backdrop, part guest loft, part utilitarian workroom.

A replacement for a termite-ridden garage behind a Craftsman home in Venice Beach, CA, the design of the 1,060 square foot studio was driven by the Client’s commitment to collecting video and film based works by emerging artists who delve into gender, identity and socio-political issues. As an executive in the entertainment industry, her support of young and evolving talent began, in part, from her time living in London near the Serpentine Gallery. When Modal Design was brought on board the Client specifically cited the Gallery and its temporary pavilions as moments of personal delight and intrigue.

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Article source: Klopf Architecture 

Klopf Architecture and Jesse Ososki Art remodeled an existing Eichler atrium home into a brighter, more open, and more functional version of its original self.

Telegraph Hill House in San Francisco, California by Feldman Architecture, Inc.

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Article source: Feldman Architecture, Inc.

The original house suffered from a plain, unarticulated stucco façade and unusually narrow, chopped-up interior spaces. The main living spaces were separated from the entry by two floors of awkward, dark stairs and hallways. But the house did have tall ceilings and the potential for stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, and downtown San Francisco.

The Grange in Palo Alto, California by Feldman Architecture, Inc.

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Article source: Feldman Architecture, Inc. 

When the client approached Feldman Architecture with a vision of a family home with a swing on a tree and a barbeque out back, the architects embraced the opportunity to apply contemporary ideals to a traditional aesthetic.  They integrated light-filled spaces and seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor areas into a classical layout to deliver a design as attentive to the house’s feel as to its look.

Blue Bottle South Park in San Francisco, California by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Article source: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson 

The first of several Bohlin Cywinski Jackson-designed cafés to be completed for Blue Bottle, this new 1,200-square-foot South Park location transforms the street-level storefront of a former Kohler warehouse into a light-filled, deliberately minimal interior space. The design reveals the site’s inherent beauty by stripping away the frivolous and unnecessary, elevating the most essential attributes of the architecture, such as original brick walls and heavy timber support columns, and enhancing the visible connection to the bustling SoMa streets.

Venice House in California by pod architecture + design

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Article source: pod architecture + design

Venice House is a compact, three-story house in Venice Beach, CA, huddled among the neighborhood’s densely packed residences and detached garages. The sloping trapezoidal roof and white metal and warm wood exterior walls make it stand out in the crush of houses.

There were just 700 square feet on which to begin custom-designing a modern three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath house for this family of four. Since we couldn’t build out, we built up, stacking spatial needs vertically, starting with an open two-car garage and private outdoor living space on the ground level.
