MANDEVILLE CANYON in Brentwood, California by Whipple Russell Architects

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Article source: Whipple Russell Architects

This horse ranch in Brentwood, California is a livable romantic blend of contemporary and Mediterranean architectural sensibilities. The house was originally created for two artists, husband and wife; one an architect turned director, another, a writer and sommelier. Both were very passionate about every detail that had gone into the creation of all their living spaces; a restoration in Italy and a loft in New York City.

Mojave Rivers Ranger Station in Acton, California by Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Article source : Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects

Situated in the Antelope Valley, along the Western edge of the Mojave Desert, the Mojave Rivers Ranger Station is designed for administrative and fire personnel from the USDA Forest Service Mojave Rivers Ranger District.   Both client and architect aspired to achieve a building appropriate to its context and to the function of the agency. In keeping with the Forest Service’s principles, the ranger station is designed to convey the agency’s roots as an institution with “an ethic of conservation and stewardship, a close tie to the land, and an orientation of service to current and future generations.” The result is a facility whose form and aesthetic is largely shaped by its desert site and climate.

Oxnard Marina Residence in California by Bondanelli Design Group

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: Bondanelli Design Group

This two story, 8000 s.f. residence is located at the intersection of two channels within the Oxnard Marina. Being a vacation home, and given the maritime location,  the house has a strong Asian theme, and conceptually is inspired by a south East Asian village, with most of the rooms having a separate roof structure, as a cluster of pavilions.
The curvilinear separation between kitchen and public spaces is taken from the shape of the client’s boat docked just outside.

McGeever Building Rehabilitation Isla Vista in California by Acme Architecture

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Keith Rivera, AIA

This rehabilitation of a modest 1960’s commercial building brings new life to a neglected structure in this coastal college town adjacent to the University of California Santa Barbara. Facade improvements included new fiber cement cladding inspired by retail barcodes and energy efficient storefronts with irregularly patterned mullions. Along the sidewalk raised outdoor dining patios were created with metal enclosures that mimic the storefronts. Inside, mechanical systems were updated along with and access for the disabled. Now the open facades entice passerby while the outdoor dining activities and rhythmic patterns of the new facade enliven the downtown streetscape.

Residence on Terrybrae Terrace in Tarzana, California by Edmund M. Einy, FAIA Architect

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Article source: Edmund M. Einy, FAIA Architect

The spatial experience unfolds as one descends from the entry ramp down into the home, here the view of the street and its noise are diminished and the quite realm of the house pervades.

The program is organized vertically with the public living, dining, kitchen, and the main art gallery spaces on the lower level and the private children’s and parent’s rooms on the upper level. The lower level’s open plan is designed for shifting social activities. The floor is seen as a “field” in which pool, furniture, and objects sit. Large pivoting and sliding glass doors extend the habitable space through to the outside. Horizontal circulation wraps this field and serves as path for the viewing of art displayed on the walls.

Skid Row Housing Trust Management Offices in Los Angeles, California by Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects LOHA

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

Article source: Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects

As part of an on-going collaboration with Skid Row Housing Trust (SRHT), a non-profit organization that provides permanent supportive housing for the homeless population of Los Angeles, LOHA was asked to design a 4,100 sf Tenant Improvement to house their management offices including training and event headquarters. Taking advantage of the heaviness of the existing ‘forest of columns’ present in the space, LOHA deployed a series of trees that concealed the existing structure while providing the framework for a custom lighting installation. The space serves as an urban oasis within the otherwise chaotic nature of its surroundings within the Skid Row district of Los Angeles both for the patrons served and the managing staff.
