The complete renovation of a non-descript and well-worn, 1930’s mid-block bungalow created a new home for a young San Francisco family. Through a modest addition and comprehensive transformation, the house was reconceived for modern living.

Brucato House in Los Angeles, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture 

The Brucato house is a rare example of new construction within a Historic Preservation Zone (HPOZ) in the city of Los Angeles. Located in the Highland Park-Garvanza district, which is the largest HPOZ in Los Angeles, the project consists of a new house that replaced the client’s small, aging bungalow. Since the original house was determined to be historically insignificant, its replacement would have to be compatible with the historic context and subject to the HPOZ board’s approval. And with a limited budget, it was critical to reuse certain elements of the structure, such as the existing foundation and parts of the existing framing.

Robin Restaurant in San Francisco, California by TODD DAVIS ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

Article source: TODD DAVIS ARCHITECTURE 

The 1,250 square foot Robin is the dynamic reflection of the collaboration between architect Todd Davis’ and chef Adam Tortosa’s vision for the space. Robin is not a traditional omakase restaurant, with the sushi cases built level into the thick Brazilian slate just above the wood bar giving the diner a sense that the chefs are preparing the food just for them with no distractions. The fire clay tiles and murals by Caroline Lizarraga add a final touch to the interior experience.

Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County in California by CO Architects

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Article source: CO Architects

CO Architects’ innovative expansion and modernization of the 100-year-old Natural History Museum (NHM) of Los Angeles County fully engages museum-goers and puts an interactive and contextually responsive public face on the museum. Through a highly visible redesign of the museum’s North Campus, featuring a new glass pavilion, entry bridge, outdoor amphitheater, and newly developed landscape, the museum has become an inviting indoor-outdoor experience for visitors and passersby. The iconic Beaux-Arts style 1913 Building was retrofitted and renovated—along with the famed Dinosaur Hall—via an investigative process referencing original drawings to preserve the building’s infrastructure. With a completely re-imagined campus, the museum now offers its patrons an active and dynamic center for public engagement and scientific exploration for the next century.

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.
