1200 Intrepid in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Article source: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group 

1200 Intrepid is a LEED Gold office building shaped by the encounter between Robert Stern’s master plan of rectangular city blocks and James Corner’s iconic, circular Central Green Park.  The building’s double curved, pre-cast concrete façade bows inwards to create a generous urban canopy that responds to the ‘shock wave’ of the park’s circular running track, activity pods and planting vignettes – rippling outwards like rings in water to invade the building’s footprint. Shaped by the city grid, the cornice and remaining elevations return to the orthogonal design of the Navy Yard’s master plan, forming the building’s double curve and melding the neighbourhood’s two dominant forms. Referencing the Navy Yard’s maritime history while providing much needed natural light, a functioning periscope penetrates the core of the building, projecting views of the Navy Yard basin into the center of the elevator lobby. Visitors and employees can admire the mothballed ships sitting in the adjacent docks while embracing Central Green Park – connecting the building and its inhabitants to their surroundings.

Captain’s House in Shohola, Pennsylvania by Bromley Caldari Architects PC

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Bromley Caldari Architects PC 

The client, a retired Army captain, asked us to design an urban loft on a steep, wooded, rocky site overlooking the Delaware River in rural Shohola, Pennsylvania.  The house is an escape from New York City and a laboratory for ideas – a place to read and work, pace and think.  A place where indoors and outdoors blur.

The design is made of two intersecting rectangular volumes.

Kensington High School for the Creative and Performing Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA by SMP Architects

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: SMP Architects

Youth United for Change, a teenage activist group in this distressed urban neighborhood, was instrumental in charging the School District of Philadelphia (SDP) to create a smaller high school that would encourage students to graduate rather than drop out with little hope for the future. Coupled with this request was their desire for “a green school” that would provide a bright, healthy learning environment, in contrast to their home living conditions.

Metcalfe Architecture & Design recently completed the renovation of the Seidenberg House in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, USA.
