In the ongoing discussions concerning the renovation of American cities and new developments for both business and culture, the current proposal is an intervention in the reshaping of Houston, Texas’ downtown area.
The offices for Clover Corporate were designed for a company dedicated to the logistics of freight transport. The different departments are connected according to the relation between them and located on the head of a big warehouse in a very narrow and large area.
This project is a renovation of an existing restaurant building into the new offices for Resignation Media, a company that recently relocated from Venice, California. The two-story 11,690 square foot building situated in downtown Austin presented many challenges, including mold, deteriorating structure and outdated and failing infrastructure.
With a design inspired by the reeds that cover the shores of the lake, the bridge is a light and maintenance-free structure that is well-integrated within its wetland setting. The bars/reeds intertwine at the abutments and “grow” over the bridge, camouflaging it and transforming the bridge into a symbiotic, almost invisible link.
Composed of five nested pipes, the arch structure spans 100 feet with a main span of 80 feet.
The inde/jacobs gallery, together with an eight-piece furniture and accessories collection, were presented at this year’s ICFF together with a new book entitled “Claesson Koivisto Rune in Marfa – The inde/jacobs gallery”, published to mark the inauguration of the gallery.
Not Whole Fence pays homage to the simpler days of baseball, of watching the great American past
ime through a wooden fence. Imagine a child, peeking through the knotholes with the impressionable canvas of youth, evoked by a sense of wonder and hope or devoted fans who cannot afford tickets, sneaking glances through small openings with playfully mischievous eyes, excited by the possibility of joyous victory or getting caught.
Suspended on a narrow limestone ridge halfway down a cliff overlooking Lake Austin, this home builds upon the frame of an existing 1970s-era structure. The renovation re-works the processional sequence into and through the house making it habitable for an elderly couple, enhancing engagement with the dramatic site, and incorporating elements that have personal importance to the owners.
This house positions itself as a backdrop to a spectacular site, with a dense canopy of trees in front and steep ravine in back. Our goal was to preserve all of the site’s large live oaks while creating a sense of transparency that allows the landscape to flow through the living spaces.
Our proposal for the design of multi-family housing in Marfa, Texas, consists of three rammed earth dwellings that are integrated into the landscape. We are proposing to combine local building techniques with a formal language which alludes to the carved rock formations and smooth transitions found in the indigenous landscape of the Chihuahuan desert.
