Sound Transit U Link University of Washington Station in Seattle by LMN Architects

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: LMN Architects

More than a light rail station, Sound Transit’s University of Washington Station, designed by LMN Architects, adds multiple facets to the urban fabric at the intersection of Montlake Boulevard and Pacific Street.

Knitting together transportation modalities from bike to bus to pedestrians to trains, the multi-disciplinary design of the 156,000-square-foot station creates a unified mobility solution at a problematic street intersection, one of the busiest in Seattle, and provides a unique gateway to the UW campus through its above and below-grade experiences.

Cantilever House in Seattle, Washington by ROBERT HUTCHISON ARCHITECTURE

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Article source: ROBERT HUTCHISON ARCHITECTURE

The clients, both working professionals, lived in a small Seattle bungalow for fifteen years on a small site that overlooks Portage Bay and the University of Washington campus to the northeast. They loved the convenient location to the University and downtown Seattle, and the dynamic water views filled with rowing shells and sailboats. But the inefficient bungalow was cold in the winter and hot in the summer, had poor natural light, and suffered from significant water intrusion problems. The couple decided to construct a new house on the same property, one that would distill their urban lifestyle on an equally small footprint, yet that was specifically tailored to the qualities of the site. To assist in financing the project, they chose to devote a third of the available living area to a rentable mother-in-law apartment.

Hope’s® Steel Windows and Doors Open Up Living Spaces of D.C. Home in Washington, D.C. by ROBERT M. GURNEY, FAIA

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Article source: ROBERT M. GURNEY, FAIA

Hope’s® Hopkins Series™ steel slide and fold doors along with Landmark175™ Series steel windows and doors, all featuring Thermal Evolution™ technology, lend a modern aesthetic to the traditional style of this Washington, D.C. home.

Hopkins Series slide and fold doors on the ground level help create a seamless transition from the beautiful backyard garden to the modern, art-inspired interior.

The existing D.C. residence had a traditional layout with compartmentalized spaces, heavy trim, and a dark palette of materials. The scenic garden, developed over the owners’ thirty years at the property, seemed isolated from the interior spaces.

Washington Fruit & Produce HQ by Graham Baba Architects

Monday, November 13th, 2017

Article source: Graham Baba Architects

Surrounded by the world’s most high-tech fruit packing warehouses, the 16,500-square-foot Washington Fruit & Produce Co. headquarters is conceived as an oasis amidst a sea of concrete and low-lying brush landscape. Tucked behind land forms and site walls, this courtyard-focused office complex provides a refuge from the noise and activity of the industrial processing yards nearby. Taking its design cue from an aging barn that the client had identified as a favorite, the concept seeks to capture the essence of an utilitarian agricultural aesthetic. A simple exposed structure that employs a limited material palette and natural patina, the design merges rural vernacular with an equally spare contemporary aesthetic. The L-shaped building is nested into the landscape through the use of board-formed concrete site walls and earthen berms that wrap the perimeter to form a central, landscaped courtyard. Soil excavated for foundation work was repurposed for the perimeter berms, eliminating the need to remove it or add more. A notch through the berm provides access from the parking area to the formal courtyard and building entrance.

Sol Duc Cabin in Washington by Olson Kundig

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

This 350-square-foot cabin is a small perch for its occupant. When you’re inside or on the deck, you are raised up above the landscape with an excellent view out onto the Sol Duc River. And the interior is like a warm, dry nest. It is located in one of the few temperate rainforests in the world, and “rainforest” here means wet and rather cold, as opposed to wet and hot. Putting the cabin on stilts protects it from the clammy dampness and occasional flooding.
