“House in Trees” in Echo Park, Los Angeles by Anonymous Architects

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Article source: Anonymous Architects

The site is characterized by its remote feeling and mature trees; this despite being surrounded by dense urban development. It is an unusual paradox to have such a natural setting that occurs in the middle of Los Angeles – a city known for its endless sprawl and crawling traffic.

MUGU HOUSE in California by Stephane Malka Architecture

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Article source: Malka Architecture

Located at Mugu Point California, fifty miles away from Los Angeles where Malka Architecture just opened its new studio, the Mugu House is nested on Malibu’s Hills porosities.

The project benefits from the existing topography of the actual site ; the result is a zero impact on the surrounding nature, an ecological project in immersion with the rock, its vegetation and its thermal variations.

Light Box in Los Angeles, California by ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects, Inc.

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Article source: ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects, Inc. 

On a gritty stretch of Venice Boulevard in Los Angeles, the PSPMLA office sits on a previously vacant 2,500 sf infill commercial parcel. Dubbed the “Light Box” for its simple geometry slotted in acknowledgement of the natural solar conditions, the 2,200 sf office for a boutique property management firm discretely slips into the streetscape of tightly packed auto body shops, neon sign fabricators, digital printers, and various light commercial businesses. The design expands upon the urban texture of the street, while also carving out a bright, naturally illuminated respite for the office staff and their clientele.

Two courtyards in Los Angeles, California by MUÑOZ ARQUITECTOS ASOCIADOS S. C. P.

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

Article source: MUÑOZ ARQUITECTOS ASOCIADOS S. C. P.

We received a commission from a married couple to design a house to be built on a small plot (with an 8-meter frontage and a depth of 30 meters) inserted within a dense and difficult context. The couple, whose children had already left home, asked us for a simple house, obstruction-free and with a strongly contemporary feel.

Mountain View Double Gable Eichler Remodel in California by Klopf Architecture

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

Article source: Klopf Architecture

Klopf Architecture, Outer Space Landscape Architects, Sezen & Moon Structural Engineer and Flegels Construction updated a classic Eichler open, indoor-outdoor home.

Everyone loved the classic, original bones of this house, but it was in need of a major facelift both inside and out. The owners also wanted to remove the barriers between the kitchen and great room, and increase the size of the master bathroom as well as make other layout changes. No addition to the house was contemplated.

BRIC Phase One in San Diego, California by John Portman & Associates

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: John Portman & Associates

BRIC Phase One is a dual-branded Marriott with a 253-key select service Springhill Suites hotel and a 147-key extended stay Residence Inn hotel, leased retail areas for shops and restaurants and above-grade structured parking. The complex’s name, BRIC, is in reference to the site’s location at BRoadway and PacifIC. With the inclusion of publicly-accessible shops, restaurants and terraces at various levels along the west side of the building facing a public park, the project extends the public realm vertically, allowing for great views of the San Diego Bay and the events that occur along the waterfront. As a nod to the history of the site as the former location of Lane Field ballpark, these retail and terrace spaces step back from the park in such a way as to recall the bleachers of old.

Vidalakis Residence in California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

This distinctive residence was designed as a piece of inhabitable art for its owner, an avid collector of colorful and unique works. Featuring three stepped-back stories linked by a grand mahogany staircase and a double-height glass pavilion overlooking the semi-rural landscape on three sides, this gallery home is a piece of sculpture in its own right.

Tea Houses in Silicon Valley, California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

The idea for the tea houses originated years ago, when the owner and his young daughter explored the remote hills surrounding their Silicon Valley home, discovering an idyllic setting below a ridge, under a grove of large California Live Oak trees. At first, the family thought the setting would be perfect for a tree house. Years later, after the 6000 square foot main house was extensively remodeled, the vision was realized as three individual tea houses, places where one could simply retreat into nature.
