Saturday, November 19th, 2016

Article source: Form4 Architecture 

Design

Hanover Page Mill, a LEED Platinum and net-zero electric building designed by Form4 Architecture for Hanover Page Mill Associates, is a powerful statement of synthesis between architectural form and energy performance. Located at Stanford Research Park in Palo Alto, CA, this spec office building was designed using affordable and practical building strategies to provide higher occupant comfort standards, while offering market-rate leasing options that make it competitive with traditional buildings. The building pays for its net zero features entirely though energy-cost savings.

West Hollywood Belltower in California by Tom Wiscombe Architecture

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: Tom Wiscombe Architecture 

The history of the American billboard tracks with the larger cultural and technological history of media distribution and aesthetic sensibilities. In the early 20th century, the billboard began as a large sign or three-dimensional icon, often calling attention to immediate building functions or domestic products. With the explosion of car culture and the film industry at mid-century, the billboard was transformed into something non-local, something representing filmic worlds, in wide-screen formats. Sunset Boulevard has played a distinct role in the evolution of the billboard, particularly in the 60’s and 70’s, with edgy content, protruding elements, and promotional appearances by music stars. The two-dimensionality of the billboard began to move towards three-dimensionality, simultaneously existing as sign and object. Our proposal aims to build on this legacy in a contemporary way, with an iconic object-billboard programmed with an unprecedented breadth of commercial, cultural, and interactive media content.

Sea Song in California by Form4 Architecture

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: Form4 Architecture

Sea Song is located in the immeasurable natural beauty of Big Sur on the California coast. Unobtrusive by design, it is both private from the main road and utterly transparent to what lies ahead. Likened to a trio of gliding Manta Rays, its environmental footprint is virtually null, being raised on a cantilevered podium causing minimum disturbance to the site.

Gold Hall Residence in Malibu, California by Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS)

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS)

Giving a face lift to an otherwise aged 1960s Malibu Canyon track home, Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) creates a sparkling contemporary gem.

Located all too near the notorious Piuma Canyon Brush fires, executive television producer Ted Gold and his wife Cara Hall, a graphic designer, took on the challenge to purchase an all wood-sided shed-roof modern home and transform it into something original and beautiful. Working with a minimal budget one step at a time, they hired local California architect Phillips to make a series of strategic surgical design procedures to update, rejuvenate, and fortify their painfully drab house with elegance and style.

Meadow Farm House in California by William McDonough + Partners

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Article source: William McDonough + Partners

The site design of this small organic farm and residence transitions from a cultivated landscape of orchards, gardens, and farming towards a restored native ecology of meadow grasses and coastal live oaks. The interwoven site and architectural design celebrate the native Northern California landscape and a deep connection to place. The main house is a series of pavilions with rolling zinc roofs that echo waves and wind patterns coming off the ocean, just visible from the property. Striated color patterns in rammed earth walls extrapolate the gentle curve of existing site topography. The building is passively heated and cooled, and energy uses are supported almost entirely by on site harvesting (PVs). The farm includes comprehensive rainwater and graywater harvesting. The project is LEED Platinum certified.

Bojanic House in Sherman Oaks, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture 

What started out as a relatively minor remodel of a modest bungalow evolved over the course of construction into a new 2,500 s.f. house, with the existing foundation and footprint as the only original elements.  The Bojanics acted as owner-builders, keeping construction costs to a bare minimum.  The end result was a uniquely collaborative effort; one where the design was worked out on a day-to-day basis during construction in a manner that bordered on improvisation.

Sinbad Creek Residence in Sunol, California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

The Sinbad Creek House project started in 2008, when the owners – a couple, newly retired from the biotech field and avid horseback riders – decided they wanted to be able to spend more time enjoying the outdoors. Desiring a change from condominium living, they purchased a bucolic 5.3 acre hillside lot in rural Sunol, with unique views in three directions: a beautiful up-slope hillside with mature oaks and a giant walnut tree to the east, a canyon ridge to the west, and Mission Peak to the south. They imagined a modern residence that would embrace its beautiful setting, take advantage of the site’s many vistas, and allow for multiple ways of enjoying the surrounding natural environment.

Jacobs Hall – UC Berkeley in California by Banker Wire

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Article source: Banker Wire

It’s only fitting that a university building with multiple practices under one roof is employing the use of versatile woven wire mesh, manufactured by Banker Wire.

Banker’s mesh provides strong infill material that also meets the architect’s design intent for exterior stair and pedestrian bridge railings at the new Jacobs Hall on the University of California, Berkeley campus. The three-story, 24,000-square-foot building houses design studios, equipment labs, classrooms, and community space.

Last month, Sonoma Academy, an independent college prep high school located in Sonoma County, broke ground on a 22,000-square-foot expansion project, designed by San Francisco-based architecture and planning firm WRNS Studio. Situated on a 34-acre campus nestled at the base of Taylor Mountain, this marks the first phase of a two-phase campus-wide transformation. Known as the Grange & Studios, the two-level educational facility will add key academic, social and cultural spaces that will support the overall mission of the school. In less than 14 months, the project went from design phase to beginning construction.
