Zig Zag in Los Angeles, California by Dan Brunn Architecture

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Article source: Dan Brunn Architecture

Israeli-born architect Dan Brunn, AIA, of Los Angeles, designed a modern waterfront home with deep terraces on each floor to maximize outdoor spaces and ocean views. The three-story house occupies a narrow oceanfront lot on Venice Beach between a house previously completed by Brunn (for a different owner) and a two-story apartment building. This tight infill site led the architect to maximize openness and daylight inside the house so the rooms feel spacious and unencumbered. Numerous skylights, floor-to-ceiling glass, and generous windows illuminate the house from the top and sides. The zig-zag shape of the beachfront balconies, gray stucco panels, and rhythmic window patterns create dynamic façades. The visual interplay of projecting and recessed planes facing the beach suggests the ebb and flow of the ocean tides as seen from the house—and artfully comply with local set-back and height regulations.

Tehama 1 in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California by Studio Schicketanz

Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

Article source: Studio Schicketanz

Studio Schicketanz organized the design of this house around a central cleared knoll and prioritized outdoor space, producing a deep exploration into the ways in which a structure can merge with and arise from a very specific ecological language. Textured stone walls give rise to controlled cement steps leading to a crisply modernist structure detailed with geometric framing and supporting a cantilevered roof that offers a shaded penumbra around the entirety of the structure. Light is at play everywhere, from the dappled light that hits the stone wall to the reflection of the majestic neighboring tree in the house’s expansive glass facade.

Coldwater Canyon Residence in Beverly Hills, California by Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

Article source: Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects

The site is a deep, narrow, one-acre hillside property in Beverly Hills. The owners’ desires were to create an oasis that focused more on a sense of privacy and introspection rather than maximizing views or presenting an extroverted face to the neighborhood. In addition, the hillside site presented a number of significant technical challenges in terms of setbacks and maximum building envelope.

3DS Culinary in Hollywood, California by Oyler Wu Collaborative

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

Article source: Oyler Wu Collaborative

3DS Culinary is a creative laboratory that is situated at the confluence of technology and the culinary arts.  Dedicated to experimentation and collaboration between designers, chefs, and artists, the new 3DS Culinary space, located on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood, CA, is a direct reflection of the company’s innovative ethos.    Located in a 1928 Neoclassical Bank building, the architects, Oyler Wu Collaborative stripped the interior volume down to its most basic elements, leaving only the concrete vault, masonry exterior walls, and the exposed steel roof trusses that once hung a coffered ceiling.  Inside the open volume, a hyper-modern interior sits in stark contrast to the rawness of the original building.
