Bellevue First Congregational Church in Washington by atelierjones

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Article source: atelierjones

The challenge was to convert a typical multi-tenant office space into a space capable of creating awe. To do this, the architects had to bring life to the existing beige box by breaking it open and allowing the diffuse Northwest light filter in. Historically, light has played a significant role in marking a transcendent space, and this design captures the richness of indirect, cast light reflected off natural surfaces. For the new Bellevue First Congregational Church, the new soaring sanctuary is filled with this indirect light, which subtly changes throughout the day and seasons.

Highline Stages in New York City by EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect

Highline Stages, previously known as Ceco Studios, is a photo / film studio and events space in the Meatpacking district of New York City.

With 14,500 square feet and entrances on West 14th and West 15th Streets, the space previously housed large trucks and associated equipment related to film and production. The owner decided to rebrand the space as one that could be leased out for large events and filming. The unusually tall ceiling height and easy truck access from the street are a primary feature. EOA stripped the interior of all extraneous materials to expose its original character, providing a clean canvas for any variety of events and photo-shoots while still reflecting the inherent industrial fabric of the building. When the large steel doors that divide the space are open, a view through the entire block is revealed. The entries on both streets are designed to accommodate trucks while at the same time providing a layer of privacy and control to for private events.  A new cafe bar is a place for cast and crews to relax and features reclaimed wood and blackened steel. Industrial lighting fixtures used on film sets have been re-purposed and integrated in a variety of ways throughout the space. Upstairs EOA created offices and work areas for the managers of Highline Stages with a continuation of the industrial aesthetic below. EOA also carved out smaller studio spaces to provide the client with additional opportunities to expand their offerings. The entire project is designed to provide the maximum flexibility to the clients of Highline Stages while also providing the perfect space for a variety of creative events to take place.

Bojanic House in Sherman Oaks, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture 

What started out as a relatively minor remodel of a modest bungalow evolved over the course of construction into a new 2,500 s.f. house, with the existing foundation and footprint as the only original elements.  The Bojanics acted as owner-builders, keeping construction costs to a bare minimum.  The end result was a uniquely collaborative effort; one where the design was worked out on a day-to-day basis during construction in a manner that bordered on improvisation.

Sinbad Creek Residence in Sunol, California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

The Sinbad Creek House project started in 2008, when the owners – a couple, newly retired from the biotech field and avid horseback riders – decided they wanted to be able to spend more time enjoying the outdoors. Desiring a change from condominium living, they purchased a bucolic 5.3 acre hillside lot in rural Sunol, with unique views in three directions: a beautiful up-slope hillside with mature oaks and a giant walnut tree to the east, a canyon ridge to the west, and Mission Peak to the south. They imagined a modern residence that would embrace its beautiful setting, take advantage of the site’s many vistas, and allow for multiple ways of enjoying the surrounding natural environment.

Seattle’s KEXP Public Radio $15 million Broadcast Complex by SkB & Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG)

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG) 

A six-year fundraising, location search, design and build program culminated in April 2016 with the completion of KEXP 90.3 FM Radio’s 25,000 sq. ft. $15 million state-of-the-art broadcast/live production complex. Nestled in the shadow of Seattle Center’s iconic Space Needle, KEXP remains an essential part of Seattle’s legendary music scene, and epitomizes Public Radio’s stature within the local, national and global radio/Internet listening community.  Funding for the complex was raised by a successful on-air campaign and augmented by foundation, corporate, local entrepreneur and local government support. KEXP is a Public Broadcast Station in the truest sense of the word.

Chestnut Place in Brookline, Massachusetts by BUTZ + KLUG architecture

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Article source: BUTZ + KLUG architecture

This house, a significant part of Brookline’s 19th century residential history, had suffered through decades of piecemeal renovations, deferred maintenance, structural compromise and ultimately foundation collapse. This condition presented the opportunity to reorganize the original somewhat conventional central hall plan to take advantage of the complex siting; straddling a one story ledge while perched on a rise. The piano nobile, or living floor of the house is organized around a courtyard with a new South facing loggia (an extension of the central hall) wrapping around the kitchen and connecting the house to the adjacent indoor pool building. Additionally, the loggia terminates on the opposite (North) side of the building creating a ‘back door’. A new interior stair opens up the interior to a level of clarity both in terms of light and organization and terminates at the top floor in a retractable skylight visible from the entry level three stories below. A very high level of envelope efficiency and radiant flooring keep the building warm in the winter with minimal energy, but equally important, the building is detailed to facilitate living in a way that allows you to take advantage of the natural breezes that cross the site while amplifying the age old tactic of cross ventilation.
