Seascape in Sagaponack, New York by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Located in an environmentally sensitive area, this house was built to replace an existing non-conforming structure occupying the same footprint. A pool house and pool were added to the adjoining and eventually merged lot. Staying sensitive to the areas vegetation and proximity to water, the two structures speak to each other across elevated decks and living areas. They are built on piles with breakaway walls that allow for flooding to come through as needed, while leaving the structures intact. Acknowledging the wear and tear of the seaside setting led to the use of teak siding, decking, and window and door frames. The teak is intentionally left to weather naturally to allow the buildings to grey out and recede into the setting over time. The house was designed for an active family who likes to entertain. The living area on the main floor easily opens up to the water facing deck, allowing for indoor outdoor living. A private guest suite is accessed off the family room on this level, while family rooms take in the breathtaking views on the upper floor. Here too, everyone shares access to decks and views, with the master suite in the most prominent location. The family loves water sports. The lower level otherwise uninhabitable, becomes a storage area for canoes and kayaks. The lower level of the pool house provides ample storage for sea vehicles as well. Special consideration is taken into account for the passage of the sun, providing overhangs to cut out the summer rays. Shading elements throughout prevent unwanted heat gain, while operable fenestration allows for cross breezes and natural cooling. Landscaping here is minimal, with no added fill, which may disturb the natural setting.

An Office for Three Companies in New York by Only If

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

Article source: Only If 

How to use color and material to unify an increasing amount of junk in the contemporary office landscape? An office interior for three companies is structured by a neutral background of white walls, white exposed ceilings, and a poured black floor. Everything connected to the floor is black. Everything connected to the ceiling is white. The three companies, while different and to a certain degree independent, are unified through this common material framework.

NEW LAB in New York by Macro Sea

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

Article source: Macro Sea

Macro Sea began work on Building 128—which, after years of neglect, was a deserted shell—in 2012. The team took inspiration from the cathedral-like steel trusswork, and approached it as a 1970’s High-Tech Modernist muse—a kind of structural expressionist beauty.
