Hayvenhurst Folie in Encino, California by NEW THEME Inc.

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Article source:  NEW THEME Inc. 

Originally contracted to restore a family’s mid-century home in Encino, California, NEW THEME Inc. was brought on to develop an inspirational, unique and didactic playhouse for the family’s children. The playhouse was inspired by the concept of a “folie”, which, amongst its many meanings, also refers to a small structure popular in France for recreational purposes. By naming it the “Hayvenhurst Folie”, it signifies an escape from not only the main house but also the energy grid of the neighborhood. The structure utilizes significant sustainable systems to achieve an off-the-grid energy profile that provides a scalable model of energy responsibility.

NEW YORK:  As the culmination of a nearly 20-year-long odyssey, the Lower East Side Girls Club has added a new component to its year-old Center for Community.  A classic Airstream Trailer (circa 1958) has been repurposed as a teaching, production and recording studio for LESGC’s WGRL Internet Radio Station and Recording Arts Program.  Prominently displayed in a second story window in LESGC’s recently completed $20 million sustainably-built 12 story building at 101 Avenue D, the studio was designed and configured by Walters Storyk Design Group cofounder/architect/ acoustician John Storyk.

Manhattan Micro Loft in New York by Specht Harpman

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source: Specht Harpman

This project involved the radical transformation of a tiny, awkward apartment at the top of a six-story building.  With only 425 square feet of floor area, but a ceiling height of over 24 feet, the new design exploits the inherent sectional possibilities, and creates a flowing interior landscape that dissolves the notion of distinct “rooms.”

This third winery of the Plumpjack group is expected to produce elegant and feminine wines, which they sought to reflect in the architecture. The side view of the facility evokes the sweeping curve of a swan’s wing, inspired by the Tchaikovsky ballet character Odette.

Aviator’s Villa in Duchess County, New York by Urban Office Architecture

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source: Urban Office Architecture

This project explores the idea of flight as a powerful motivator for architectural darings.

The house, designed for a retired Pilot, the Aviator, is organized as an analogical continuum of dis-assembled flight components. Similarly to how the “Air Body” wraps an airplane all around, and completely, so is the House “exposed” to air on all its sides, in an orbital fashion.

HALL Peterson Bergfeld in St. Helena, California by Signum Architecture

Monday, January 6th, 2014

Article source: Signum Architecture

Components: Barrel Storage, Event Venue

Built in 1885, time and the elements had taken a toll on this historic winery, which was shuttered by Prohibition and then reopened after repeal as a precursor to Napa Valley’s custom crush concept. The owners wanted to bring this treasure back to life as an extension of their new state-of-the art winery.
