Clea House in San Diego, California by Nakhshab Development & Design, Inc.

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Article source: Nakhshab Development & Design, Inc.

Designed, engineered and built by boutique San Diego firm Nakhshab Development & Design (NDD), the LEED Gold-certified Clea House, although just minutes from downtown San Diego, is set on a serene Mission Hills canyon slope. This mid-century modern-inspired single family home complements its surroundings and preserves the existing site terrain with a seamless cantilever design.  Elegantly perched on a three-story access column that encases an elevator, a stairway and one “bonus” room per floor, the nearly 4,000 square-foot Clea House functions primarily as a single-level residence in which large open rooms and outdoor spaces flow together with nature prominently on display throughout the home.

The Manna House in Glassell Park, California by Jeremy Levine Design

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: Jeremy Levine Design

The Manna House is for a client who has unusual obsession with color. My initial concept was to use a camouflage palette to blend the house into the hillside. My client wanted the anti-camouflage house. The house takes its inspiration from the abstract color field paintings of Kenneth Noland and Josef Albers. Various shades of blue connect the house -sited on the ridge of a hill- to the the sky that serve as its backdrop. Blue is also a reference to how the house “sails” along the top of the hill like a ship.

VIL – Creative Office in Pasadena, California by Domaen

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: Domaen

The project VIL is an interior build-out in an existing warehouse for the Los Angeles headquarters of the content and production agency Conscious Minds. A main architectural feature is a continuous surface sheet forming an articulated ceiling and simultaneously folding around two conference spaces. The digital surface manipulation follows in part pragmatic stipulations but also creates a divided two-material sheet that appears to artificially tear at the seams to allow glimpses into the otherwise enclosed conference rooms.

Hilgard Garden in Berkeley, California by Mary Barensfeld Architecture

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Article source: Mary Barensfeld Architecture

Hilgard Garden aims to provide the owners with an extended outdoor living space; a garden room.  Due to the steeply sloping site, accessibility to an upper seating area requires navigating a considerable elevation change.   To avoid taking up a large swathe of the smaller backyard square footage with a conventional stair, a ramping meandering path through aromatic groundcover and the outstretched limbs of sculptural Japanese maples was selected as a more experiential garden path.

GMP – Yorba Linda Residence in California by Domaen

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Article source: Domaen

The project hugs a difficult hillside that is in most part subject to a future landslide and therefore in large parts unbuildable. The current proposal takes advantage of an existing berm to anchor the second story with all the private areas so that the building bridges as a quasi-landform over the entrance. The building is Y-shaped to accommodate a private courtyard and maximize the buildable area of the lot.
