The Rotating Radius House in New Mexico by jantzen studio

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: jantzen studio

The Rotating Radius House is an experimental interactive architecture project designed to provide a special weekend retreat place for two people living in New Mexico.

At the center is a twenty-foot diameter glass and steel cylindrical space formed by twelve perimeter sliding glass doors, and by twelve segments of a sloped glass and steel roof. Each of the sliding glass doors is fitted with interior privacy shades and screens. This space contains a large centrally located light, a bed, chairs, tables, a food preparation pod, and a bath/toilet pod, all mounted on wheels. The entire house is powered by a large solar panel mounted on the top of the structure, and by auxiliary propane gas, stored nearby in steel tanks. Rainwater is collected off of the roof and purified for use in the house, and stored in an outside reservoir.

Mack Energy Corporation in Artesia, New Mexico

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

Article source: New Voodou

The architecture of the corporate offices for Mack Energy evokes the independent energy company’s engagement in oil and gas exploration, development and production in both form and materials. The boldly articulated curtainwall of the double height building entry recalls the skeletal form of drilling rigs whilecast relief on the concrete panels mimics the stratification of the earth. Throughout the building the abundant use of natural materials ties the structure to New Mexico’s diverse landscape environment — sun, desert, and mountains. Inside the atrium two of the soaring walls, clad in stone with a pattern that reveals the oil rich rock strata of southeastern New Mexico and west Texas, are also water walls that flow into a small interior pond though a channel imbedded in the floor. A tall, dramatic sculpture depicts a scene from an active well and echoes the articulation of the exterior frame.

Sited above Albuquerque’s Petroglyph National Monument, the Escarpment House is a visually porous version of the classic New Mexican courtyard typology. The house’s spatial sequence is a progression through outdoor spaces – from an entry court though a glazed interior courtyard to the Sandia View Patio.

Isleta Tribal Services Complex in Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico by Rohde May Keller McNamara Architecture

“Rhythm in Steel as an Aesthetic Experience”

Established in the 14th century, Isleta Pueblo maintains strong ties to traditional values. The Tribal Services Complex is located in the foothills between the Rio Grande Bosque and Manzano Mountains, and is strategically placed in a natural depression, flanked by two preserved promontories. The complex co-locates Fire, Police, E911, Courts, Council, Administration, Wellness and Vehicle Fleet. Lower levels house public safety and tribal leadership, while the upper plaza level/s serve public needs. The architectural imprint acknowledges an ephemeral existence – to blend harmoniously with the land through time. The aim was to create a sense of unity around a center and acknowledge tradition:

    gathering (proto-urban assemblages around a “middle place”)
    alignment (sun, moon, sacred directions)
    harmony with natural surroundings (earth-water-air-fire-spiritual)
    prehistory (function & belief based architectural chronology)

Located in Albuquerque’s historic Sawmill District, known for its eclectic mix of industrial, manufacturing and residential uses, the new warehouse for Chaparral Electric is situated on the property between their existing offices and a residence use. The owner’s goal was to accommodate their storage needs and provide a large mezzanine-level conference room while pushing the limit on “what a warehouse” traditionally looks like.
