Moretti Residence in Texas by Norman D. Ward architect

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: Norman D. Ward architect

An undeveloped sixty-foot wide parcel of land, extending three blocks is a result of two residential developments merging in the 1930’s. In time, houses were built on each end of the three blocks. Moretti’s house began with the purchase of one of these 60’ x 300’ lots, the only lot without an existing house.

Sea Ranch Lakes Residence in Florida by Silberstein Architecture

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

Article source: Silberstein Architecture 

The plan for this 5,500 square foot private residence located along the Intracoastal Waterway is influenced from by the views, the irregular pie-shaped lot, the requirement that garages cannot face the street and the need to locate a septic field on the property.  All of these criteria influenced the plan and geometry of the home, and one of the most prominent features is the cantilevered second floor at the front façade.

Southwest Modern Townhome Development in Phoenix, Arizona by The Ranch Mine

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

Article source: The Ranch Mine 

In many ways, “Uptown Row” is a development between two worlds. The site is situated less than 500 feet away from a light rail station in Uptown Phoenix, between a heavy commercial thoroughfare and historic residential district. Its typology straddles the line between a single-family home and multi-family complex. It is part of a city that relies on the automobile but is actively shifting towards public transportation. This 10-unit greyfield development designed by young Phoenix based architecture firm The Ranch Mine and built and developed by Boxwell Southwest finds harmony in a diverse neighborhood, stitching together disparate elements in a refined, modern complex.

NEW LAB in New York by Macro Sea

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

Article source: Macro Sea

Macro Sea began work on Building 128—which, after years of neglect, was a deserted shell—in 2012. The team took inspiration from the cathedral-like steel trusswork, and approached it as a 1970’s High-Tech Modernist muse—a kind of structural expressionist beauty.

LUMINA Condominium Development in Folsom St., San Francisco by II BY IV DESIGN

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: v2com

In San Francisco, where it’s notoriously harder to find a place to live than it is to find a job, breaking into the real estate market can be difficult. San Francisco is a compact city of less than 50 square miles situated on steep hills and surrounded on three sides by water, which means new development has historically been limited. That is until 1989 when an earth quake destroyed portions of the double-deck Embarcardero freeway; the road was sadly demolished, but it opened up areas for new development and new opportunity.

Gold Hall Residence in Malibu, California by Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS)

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS)

Giving a face lift to an otherwise aged 1960s Malibu Canyon track home, Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) creates a sparkling contemporary gem.

Located all too near the notorious Piuma Canyon Brush fires, executive television producer Ted Gold and his wife Cara Hall, a graphic designer, took on the challenge to purchase an all wood-sided shed-roof modern home and transform it into something original and beautiful. Working with a minimal budget one step at a time, they hired local California architect Phillips to make a series of strategic surgical design procedures to update, rejuvenate, and fortify their painfully drab house with elegance and style.
