Firestone Pavilion in Longmeadow, Massachusetts by Newick Architects

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Article source: Newick Architects

The site for this project is an existing 1960’s modern house with a 1980’s complementary addition. The Pool existed at the outset as well.

We were asked to design a new pool enclosure fence and Car Port that would be more consistent  with the architecture of the house than the English trellis and dovecotes that  existed when we began. All of this pre-dated the current owner.

The project is a compound in Groton, MA. The project started with a 1930’s Sears kit house set upon 1.4 gently rolling hectare overlooking substantial preserves about an hour outside of Boston. While charmingly renovated, the existing structure offered only very small-scale spaces which couldn’t really accommodate family and guests looking for escape to the countryside.

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

The fold house is a study in concrete panel construction. One of the full scale prototypes created for the Boston Architecture College exhibition was a concrete panel wall with a tessellated surface. Vertical concrete panels were hinged one to the other establishing the folded geometric pattern. The underlying idea for this prototype is the driving force behind the Fold House. Here, concrete panels hinge upon one another to form a compressed surface.
