Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Article source: Lake|Flato Architects

Project Overview

The 34,000-square-foot Arizona State University Health Services Building (ASU HSB) is an adaptive reuse project that transformed the existing sterile and inefficient health clinic into a clearly organized, efficient, and welcoming facility. The design imbues the new facility with a sense of health and wellness that leverages Tempe’s natural environment and contributes to a more cohesive pedestrian-oriented campus. The renovated facility, the new wing, and the entrance pavilion energize the surrounding campus by engaging the historic Palm Walk—the campus’s main pedestrian spine.

35 White Street in New York by Andre Kikoski Architect

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Article source: Andre Kikoski Architect 

This 1,900 SF loft in the heart of Tribeca was the painting studio of abstract expressionist Barnett Newman. Daylight from one hundred feet of windows fills the space. Our intention to preserve and enhance the essential character of this historic loft — while crafting within it a domestic space for a family with a young child – relied on a sense of openness and light. Operable panels of prismatic glass configure to create either dramatic openness or total privacy. Custom mahogany and bronze panels enhance the natural breadth and depth of the loft. A state-of-the-art cook’s kitchen and French limestone bathrooms make this space equally suited for dramatic entertaining and intimate daily living.

UNIVERSITY CENTER, THE NEW SCHOOL in New York by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Article source: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

For nearly a century, The New School has been at the forefront of progressive education, with design and social research driving approaches to studying the issues of our time, from democracy and urbanization, to technology, sustainability, and globalization. Over the past 15 years, The New School has built on this legacy to grow into a major degree-granting university, with nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students. But, in recent years, as the school outgrew its longtime home in New York’s Greenwich Village and found its real estate holdings spread across the city, from the Financial District to the Upper West Side, this pedagogical model proved challenging to maintain without the physical plant to support it. The University Center both supports and furthers this model through its innovative design and responds to the school’s increasing demand for state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary spaces.

Lingo Construction Services in Oklahoma City, OK by Elliott + Associates Architects

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Elliott + Associates Architects

Located in the historic Automobile Alley District of Oklahoma City the design seeks to transform an existing 1930 historic masonry and steel building into a modern office space. The character of the 12,000 sq. ft. two story building, originally built for Sharp Auto Supply Co, had been diminished by thick layers of paint, historically inaccurate additions, and years of misguided design efforts.

The building covers the entire lot. There is 10 feet of additional space on the north end that allowed us to construct a fire stair, mechanical enclosure, and covered outdoor deck. This exterior construction made it possible to leave the interior intact. The open framing is consistent with the exposed studs on the interior that dramatizes the construction behind the walls., Image Courtesy © Scott McDonald, Hedrich Blessing
