Five Fields Play Structure in Lexington, Massachusetts by Matter Design + FR|SCH Projects

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Article source: Matter Design 

This play structure is situated on the sloping landscape of a mid-century modern common land, where neighborhood kids enjoy a shared backyard. The Architects Collaborative designed and developed the Five Fields neighborhood in the early 1950s hoping to foster community by creating a piece of shared common land. In the ensuing 60+ years homeowners have come and gone but the community and its care and appreciation for the common land remain. TAC conceived the neighborhood as an experiment and the community, wishing to keep the experimental spirit alive, requested a structure that is both safe and exhilarating for the kids. They wanted something that would challenge the kids without any singularly functional elements.

Chestnut Place in Brookline, Massachusetts by BUTZ + KLUG architecture

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Article source: BUTZ + KLUG architecture

This house, a significant part of Brookline’s 19th century residential history, had suffered through decades of piecemeal renovations, deferred maintenance, structural compromise and ultimately foundation collapse. This condition presented the opportunity to reorganize the original somewhat conventional central hall plan to take advantage of the complex siting; straddling a one story ledge while perched on a rise. The piano nobile, or living floor of the house is organized around a courtyard with a new South facing loggia (an extension of the central hall) wrapping around the kitchen and connecting the house to the adjacent indoor pool building. Additionally, the loggia terminates on the opposite (North) side of the building creating a ‘back door’. A new interior stair opens up the interior to a level of clarity both in terms of light and organization and terminates at the top floor in a retractable skylight visible from the entry level three stories below. A very high level of envelope efficiency and radiant flooring keep the building warm in the winter with minimal energy, but equally important, the building is detailed to facilitate living in a way that allows you to take advantage of the natural breezes that cross the site while amplifying the age old tactic of cross ventilation.

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

This project represents the culmination of a 12-year effort to reimagine Williams College’s library and restore the campus’ historic Stetson Hall, which served as the library and now continues in an archival role by housing rare original copies of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. The results fuse new and old, intertwining the college’s historic roots with the forward-looking views of its scholarly community.

House of Shifting Sands in Massachusetts by Ruhl Walker Architects

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

Sited gently on the lower slope of a dramatic sixty foot high coastal bank and surrounded by miles of undeveloped Cape Cod National Seashore beaches and scrub pines is a warm, modern beach house that is more than just a place to enjoy uninterrupted ocean views and sea breezes. Our clients dreamed of a house that would work equally well as both a year-round family “camp” and also as a “thinking retreat” for collaborating with their colleagues.
