Zucker’s Bagels & Smoked Fish in Manhattan by Ricardo Zurita Architecture & Planning, P.C. (RZAPS)

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Article source: Ricardo Zurita Architecture & Planning, P.C. (RZAPS)

For the purveyor of high-quality, authentic New York City food, their expansion to the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City was an opportunity to create a new bakery and retail flagship. The project is located on two levels in a historic 19th century building on Columbus Avenue around the corner from the fabled Dakota Apartments and Central Park. The design emerged as a celebration of textures and color intended to complement the gastronomic delicacies on display. During the design process, probes revealed long-hidden, original historic architectural elements many which were restored for reuse in the space. These included an eye-catching decorative tin ceiling and beautiful interior cast iron columns. Brick walls were revealed. Outside, cast iron storefront trim and rustic brownstone exterior walls were all uncovered and restored. Modern additions of the design included surfaces and furnishings made of black handcrafted steel and white oak. Black subway tile form the back wall of the service area while the seating area is an oasis of minimalist, crafted lighting and furnishings. The flooring is a sturdy, neutral porcelain tile throughout. The interior includes a gold-leaf mural by the artist David Bender. Located in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District, the project received approval from the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. Most importantly, since its opening, the locale has become a neighborhood destination.

Owensboro is the county seat of Daviess County in north-central Kentucky. Originally part of Shawnee territory, settlers first arrived there in the 1700s. The city played an important role in the Civil War era and served as a key river port that continues to this day. The city’s environs also gave birth to the Bluegrass sound in American music, starting in the 1930s and 1940s.

Cabin at Longbranch in Washington by Olson Kundig

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Jim Olson’s reverence for nature and admiration of the site’s beauty is expressed in the design of this project located on Puget Sound and nestled amidst the towering fir trees of an ancient forest. What began as a 14-foot-square bunk house built in 1959 has morphed through subsequent remodels in 1981, 1997, 2003 and 2014 into a modest yet highly livable weekend retreat. Each successive addition and remodel has reused and integrated the previous structure rather than erasing it to reveal the cabin’s architectural history.

Outpost in Idaho by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig 

Set in the remote, harsh high desert of Idaho, Outpost is an artist’s live/work studio and sculpture garden. The building’s compactness restricts site impact and reinforces the desire to be outside. This is a windy place, and the enclosed “paradise garden,” is separated from the wild landscape by thick masonry walls. The footprint of the house is the limit of intrusion into the land—a simple, clearly defined space. This structure exemplifies Kundig’s belief that the architect’s job is to create an experience of place.
