River House in California by MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Article source: MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

SITE

The owners wanted to take full advantage of a spectacular site on the banks of theAmericanRiver.  Heavily wooded and facing a state park across the river, the site provides a natural setting, rich in wildlife that would allow for bird watching year round.  The house is located to maintain as many mature trees as possible, which provide sun-screening and further enhance the concept of living in nature.

Skype HQ in California by Design Blitz

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Article source: Design Blitz

Skype’s primary goal was to create a world-class o”ce that would di!erentiate them from their Bay Area competitors in the recruitment of talent. Their new space not only had to be a design statement that reflected their modern but fun personality, but it also had to meet very specific acoustic requirements to support the company’s extensive use of AV. Skype hired Design Blitz architects to design their new North American headquarters on an aggressive budget and schedule. Despite being one of several new o”ces that year for Skype, the completed project ultimately became the standard for the international communications company and also achieved LEED Silver certification.

Davis Commons in California by MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

Article source: MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

  • Designed as a piece of urban planning within the context of the city as a whole
  • Creates public park at heart of downtown
  • Continues urban fabric and scale of context
  • Parking concealed

The site is adjacent to the heart of the thriving downtown area of the city of Davis. The solution is novel for this type of use: a contextual piece of urban infill, creating a new public park and providing a consistent continuation of the existing density and pedestrian scale. It is the exact opposite of typical concepts for this building type, which would normally place the buildings well back from the street and surround them with parking. The site plan in this case was carefully laid out in relation to the plan of the existing city: the buildings continue the line the street wall and then curve back to create a much needed public green-space, whilst the parking requirement is concealed behind.

One Workplace in Santa Clara, California by Design Blitz

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Article source: Design Blitz

The One Workplace Headquarters project was a unique opportunity for both One Workplace and for Design Blitz. One Workplace is the largest furniture dealer in Northern California and the single source for Steelcase furniture in the San Francisco Bay Area. The ambitious directive was to re-define the architectural standard not only of the company, but also of the showroom experience itself and create a bleeding edge, world-class workplace that serves both employees and customers alike. One Workplace had already shifted the industry paradigm of sales and showrooms away from a transactional experience to one of collaboration and partnership.

McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., one of the nation’s premier healthcare builders, has begun construction of the new 74,000-square-foot Heart and Vascular Center at Grossmont Hospital, located at 5555 Grossmont Center Drive in La Mesa, Calif.

McCarthy was retained by the Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), with CEO Barry Jantz and the publicly elected GHD board members providing oversight. Sharp HealthCare is the operator of Grossmont Hospital through a 30-year lease that was executed with the District in 1991.

Proposition G, a $247 million bond measure approved by voters of the East County region in June 2006, is funding the project, budgeted at $26,325,383 in construction costs. As proposed in the hospital’s Facilities Master Site Plan, Prop. G is funding several other infrastructure construction improvements at the publicly owned hospital, which opened in 1955.
