Santa Monica Hotels in California by Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio, Inc.

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Article source: Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio, Inc. 

DESIGN

Although different hotels, the two structures work together to create a strong presence on the 5th Street corner by providing tower-like elements which will offer a gateway to the city. Both structures have interior courts that provide for daylight, cross-ventilation, and general interest shops for hotel patrons. These projects have been designed to complement the fabric of the city while being graceful, fully functional hotels. With an eye toward the then-under-construction Expo Line ushering in an unprecedented number of visitors to Santa Monica, GP-US envisioned the hotels serving as a prime hospitality recipient for such travelers.

New Capital One Bank & Café in Santa Monica, California by Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Article source: Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

The new Capital One Bank at the corner of 4th & Broadway in downtown Santa Monica harmoniously blends a twist on a modern mid-century style design within the existing streetscape with a low-scale, two-story commercial building. The new 8,400 square foot, 2-story building echoes the character of a mid-century bank while creating a new ‘concept’ in banking. The café and bank combination will serve as a “third place” for the community – a place where people come to spend time outside of their home and work.

Presidio VC Offices in California by Feldman Architecture

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Article source: Feldman Architecture

A growing technology investment firm was seeking a light-filled design for their new office space. As is often the case in the historic buildings of the San Francisco’s Presidio, structural concrete columns and ridge skylights imposed a repetitive infrastructure that could not be altered. These fixed elements acted as a source of inspiration for the design. The rhythm of the exposed columns organizes a progression through the office and serves various programmatic needs of the employees and guests.

Healing Gardens for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California by AHBE Landscape Architects

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Article source: v2com

AHBE Landscape Architects, an esteemed Los Angeles-based firm known for its expertise in designing thoughtful, evocative landscapes that allow for contemplation and reflection, has created a healing environment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for patients, hospital staff, and visiting families and friends.

Unique solution transforms a concrete plaza into a restorative space in the city

The existing site consisted of a concrete plaza atop a multi-level garage. Using the metaphor of human skin, AHBE developed a multi-layered landscape solution that protects the existing building’s structural and mechanical integrity and accounts for an existing drainage system, emergency access, lighting and way finding, as well as extreme weather conditions. The solution – a unique, green roof-inspired system built onto the plaza’s existing structure – maximizes the impact of the landscape while minimizing construction and alterations to the existing building.
