Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Article source: David Hertz FAJA & The Studio of Environmental Architecture

This private residential compound sits on 3 large lots at the intersection of Pacifc Ave. and Navy St. which is the first street into Venice from Santa Monica, as such this project serves as a gateway to Venice. Because the intersection is very noisy the concept was to use large tilt up concrete slabs to create an acoustical and visual wall to reinforce the edge condition between the street and the residence.

Food and Agriculture Pavilion in California by Michael Jantzen

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

This pavilion proposal was created as a tourist attraction for the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Its design is intended to sustainably celebrate the great diversity, and the future of food production in the state of California.

The shape of the large concrete structure was based on a contour map of a California hill. Various food crops are planted in raised troughs that follow the contours of the perimeter of the hill. These plants are continually changed out in order to display the wide variety of crops actually grown on farms in California.

HORTON RESIDENCE in Sebastopol, California by Design Blitz

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: Design Blitz

The Horton Residence started o! as a simple, rectangular 500 sq ft addition to the owner’s existing 600 sq ft home in west Sebastopol, CA. Originally built in 1942 as a summer home for the family, the house now serves as the client’s primary residence. From the outset it was clear that this project had the potential to be something more than a simple addition, and that the whole house could be transformed into something very special. Among redwoods and in a stunning location adjacent to a seasonal creek, the project o!ered the opportunity to celebrate its setting and create a peaceful retreat for the owners.
