Mesa Drive Renovation in Los Angeles, California by Rios Clementi Hale Studios

Friday, May 27th, 2016

Article source: Rios Clementi Hale Studios

Built in 1992 by the husband-and-wife architecture team of Cigolle X Coleman, the house originally served as an experimental project of industrial materials consisting mostly of glass, steel, and concrete. A young family purchased the home and hired Rios Clementi Hale Studios to give their new residence a complete renovation to make the house warm and comfortable, and conducive to entertaining. Rios Clementi Hale Studios worked in the capacity of architect, interior designer, and landscape architect to extensively update the interior and exterior, and refine the home’s organization, while still respecting the “bones” of the original design

Stanford Central Energy Facility in California by ZGF Architects LLP

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Article source: ZGF Architects LLP

The Stanford Central Energy Facility is a transformational campus‐wide energy system – replacing a 100% fossil‐fuel‐based combined heat and power plant with grid‐sourced electricity and first‐of‐its kind heat recovery system. Positioning Stanford as a national leader in energy efficiency and carbon reduction, the results are impressive: greenhouse gas emissions are slashed by 68%; fossil fuel use by 65%; and campus‐wide water use by 15%. This comprehensive Stanford Energy System Innovation (SESI) system will eliminate 150,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, the equivalent of removing 32,000 cars from the road every year. Expected energy savings to Stanford over 35 years is $425 million.

The Stevens Library at Sacred Heart Schools in California by WRNS Studio

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Article source: WRNS Studio

The 6,300-sf Stevens Library at Sacred Heart Schools in is the first library in the USA and the first school building in California to achieve the International Living Future Institute’s Net Zero Energy Building Certification. It was part of the PG&E ZNE Pilot Project which also found it consumed less energy than it generated and is on track for LEED® Platinum and Petal Certifications.

The site is designed to maximize passive solar orientation, daylight and natural ventilation. 1. Solar harvesting through solar panels - the photovoltaic system provides all the library’s needed energy; 2. High-performance glazing and added rigid insulation for reduced energy loads; 3. Native, drought-tolerant plants are watered using harvested rainwater, Image Courtesy © WRNS Studio

Troll Hus in Norden, California by Mork-Ulnes Architects

Saturday, May 21st, 2016

Article source: Mork-Ulnes Architects

The concept

Tucked away in the mountains and nestled into a high alpine forest, the design responds to the owners’ desire for a modernist, rather secluded refuge with a constant visual reference to nature. The site is, in this sense, rather atypical to a mountain setting in that it minimizes expansive lookouts, while in fact emphasizing views towards the glade intimacy of the adjacent landscape, thus allowing for the remote and sheltered retreat the clients were seeking.

Renewed Classic Eichler in Sunnyvale, California by Klopf Architecture

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Article source: Klopf Architecture

Klopf Architecture, Growsgreen Landscape Design, and Flegel’s Construction partnered to bring this mid-century atrium Eichler home up to 21st century standards. One owner’s mother grew up in an Eichler, which gave them a deeper appreciation for the style of the home (that same mother is also responsible for the Eichler quilt in the master bedroom photo). They loved Eichlers, so while they wanted the house to work better for their family and provide a little more elbow room, they also dreamed of living in a colorful warm mid-century modern home with natural wood like the original Eichlers. They entrusted Klopf Architecture to respectfully expand and update the home, while still keeping it “classic”. The Klopf team helped them open up the kitchen, dining, and living spaces into one flowing great room, expand the master suite, replace the kitchen and bathrooms, and provide additional features like an office and powder room, all while maintaining the mid-century modern style of this Silicon Valley home.

J. Craig Venter Institute in California by ZGF Architects LLP

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

The client’s commitment to environmental stewardship initiated the challenge for the design team to create a net-zero energy (NZE) laboratory for its new West Coast research institute, which resulted in a 44,607 SF building comprised of a single-story laboratory wing and a threestory office / administrative wing framing a central courtyard, all sitting above a below-grade parking structure for 112 cars. The new facility was designed to achieve LEED-Platinum certification and a net-zero energy footprint, making it the first such biological laboratory in the country. The courtyard serves as the heart of the Institute, drawing researchers across and into the collaborative outdoor space. The project uses a modest palette of materials: highperformance glazing, Spanish cedar wood, and high-strength concrete. Each material was considered for its contribution to the enhancement of the building’s performance, resulting in a building that is both functional and artful in its simplicity.
