Lone Tree | A Sweat Equity Prototype in Dennehotso, Arizona by University of Utah – DesignBuildBLUFF

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Article source: University of Utah – DesignBuildBLUFF 

There is an overwhelming need for affordable and culturally appropriate housing within the Navajo Nation, more than a small non-profit design-organization can meaningfully contribute to on its own. With this problem in mind our designers sought to develop a flexible housing prototype that could be easily built by would-be native homeowners. The concept of “sweat equity” is one in which the client uses their own labor, rather than cash, as a form of contribution in the building process. This design, in collaboration with the Dennehotso Sweat Equity Project, creates opportunities to more directly address the issues of homelessness across the Navajo Nation by empowering communities with the basic skills, design principles, and experience needed to build for themselves. The prototype home emphasizes ease of construction, material availability, and expansion through phases.

Brucato House in Los Angeles, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture 

The Brucato house is a rare example of new construction within a Historic Preservation Zone (HPOZ) in the city of Los Angeles. Located in the Highland Park-Garvanza district, which is the largest HPOZ in Los Angeles, the project consists of a new house that replaced the client’s small, aging bungalow. Since the original house was determined to be historically insignificant, its replacement would have to be compatible with the historic context and subject to the HPOZ board’s approval. And with a limited budget, it was critical to reuse certain elements of the structure, such as the existing foundation and parts of the existing framing.

Art and Light Apartment in New York by Andrew Mikhael Architect

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Andrew Mikhael Architect 

Imagined as a gallery for the client’s artwork and lifestyle – colorful and social.

The apartment, in a building that was originally a factory, looked like a regular old rental when we started: home depot finishes, awkward walls, a tiny master bath and a powder room. My clients brightened it up with their colorful art collection, and I wanted to design a home for them that would inspire and freshen their palate and complement the artwork for their frequent home parties.
