Bay House in California by Razvan Barsan + Partners

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

Article source: Razvan Barsan + Partners 

Located on a remote beach, the ruins of a former industrial site inspired us to create a sea-side house inspired by the industrial era.  Reviving the existing layout has been one of our main concerns while trying to integrate the residential function into the industrial setting with its ragged appearance. However, fitting the new building into the amazing surrounding and making the best of the views it has to offer led us through the design process.

University of California, Los Angeles, Hitch Student Residences by Steinberg

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

Article source: Steinberg

The recently renovated Hitch Student Residences, located on the northwest edge of campus, is a complex of four three-story residential buildings organized around a series of courtyards and a new commons building with shared amenities and meeting spaces. The renovation project was conceived to address accessibility and life-safety deficiencies, including seismic strengthening of the existing structures and inclusion of fire protection systems. The project also provided the opportunity to update the exterior image and energy performance of the buildings by providing a new “skin” as well as updating the interior spaces with new finishes. The existing outdated commons building was replaced with a new building that provides support functions for the Hitch community including study areas, offices, laundry facilities, vending, and a multipurpose space that includes a display kitchen.

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Cloverdale749 is located around the block from the historically significant Miracle Mile hub comprising the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and many noteworthy cultural destinations. Adhering to a strategy to maximize land use and capitalize on zoning, the building’s 10,500 square feet push against floor area and density limitations determined by the lot’s size and location. In essence, this project is a volume that cannot expand further.

1180 Fourth Street in San Francisco, California by Mithun

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

The project houses 150 low income, very low income and formerly homeless families and individuals, currently including 261 children. As with other affordable housing in San Francisco, the tenants were selected by lottery from a long list of qualified applicants. Given the acute housing needs most of these people have experienced, particularly the homeless, the project sponsors, city officials, funders, and architects have endeavored to provide for a spectrum of user needs. Moreover, the intention has been to create an environment to forge bonds of community and companionship within the project, to make it a welcome, integral part of the neighborhood, and, by the prominence of the site and the excellence of its architecture, to serve as a symbol of the city’s robust efforts to address the ever-growing need for affordable and supportive housing.

1212 FOOD BOUTIQUE in Lodi, California by MARGSTUDIO

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

Article source: MARGSTUDIO

The project develops the concept of a small shop in the heart of the old town of Lodi, where the owners had the need to unite the sale of two types of products completely at odds: craft beers and confetti with bombioniere. The idea was to separate the two types of products not in the physical sense but perceptive, delineating spaces chromatically (dark gray on one side and white on the other) uniting the shop with some textural elements of furniture made with the same essence wooden. The result maintains a minimal line on one side and the other functional, making the homogeneous spatial experience but at the same time personalized depending on whether you are in one or another space.

8 Octavia in San Francisco, California by STANLEY SAITOWITZ │ NATOMA ARCHITECTS INC.

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Article source: STANLEY SAITOWITZ │ NATOMA ARCHITECTS INC. 

The site is where the elevated 101 Freeway connects to the surface streets at Market and becomes Octavia Boulevard – the entrance to north/west sector of San Francisco. The First Baptist Church with its classical façade and strong cornice is one pylon of this entrance.  Mirroring this mass, on the other side of Octavia Boulevard, 8 Octavia completes the gateway. This entry is seen as an opportunity to present our new city, one that folds tradition and innovation.
