380 Bretano way in Greenbrae, California by PIQUE llc

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

380 BRETANO WAY GREENBRAE, CA

Family back yard development and global headquarters for Riedel Research Group.

SITE SPECIFICITY

These two lots on Bretano way are steeply sloped and have a north-western orientation. The contours form a concaved amphitheater-like shape focusing on the existing pool and the house’s back patio. The area is dense with foliage but there are pockets of clear space that create sheltered little moments as you walk upon them. Both large public areas and these isolated spaces exist and the differences in scale offer a variety of experiences. There is an overall sense of protection and inward focus while on the site. The downward momentum of the land combined with the expansive canopies of the oak trees makes the space feel immediate, protected and calm. This is a wonderful contrast to the other very dynamic systems that are presented in this booklet and this contrast may be fruitful as we begin to establish common design intent.

Eight acres of land with dense stands of white and red fir slope upward to the rocky granite ridge crest that forms a backstop to this exceptional site. This was the second home we had designed for the clients, the first being the Strathmoor House, also in this book.

Article source: Koning Eizenberg Architecture

This 47,000 sq. ft. project entails the adaptive reuse and creative rehabilitation of two lightindustrial warehouse buildings in a gritty inner-city Los Angeles neighborhood. On a tight budget, the design deinstitutionalizes the sensitive social functions of the organization, through a combination of innovative organizational planning and the limited insertion of simple (but creative) new architectural systems within the renovated existing building shell. The program includes a preschool, individual therapy rooms, administrative offices, and large multipurpose spaces for community programs.

Hancock Lofts in West Hollywood, California by Koning Eizenberg Architecture (designed using Revit and SketchUp)

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Koning Eizenberg Architecture

A developer/architect team was selected by the City of West Hollywood to develop a city owned site, address a shortage of parking, and flush out a program for housing and retail space through a community process. The design’s non-conventional approach leverages the irregular, sloping lot to reinforce street life as well as create an unexpected roof top open space. Public parking is located underground while residential parking loops up and over street level housing to place an active use along the side street. Architectural expression is rooted in sustainable strategies. All units are cross ventilated and sliding wood screens are used to shade boulevard flats and moderate the level of engagement with the busy street below.
