Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School Campus in Washington, DC by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Mundo Verde is a bilingual, sustainability-focused public charter school located in the District of Columbia.  The school’s curriculum is based in expeditionary learning, where students learn through the active exploration of the world around them.  Awarded a shuttered 1920s-era school building and site by the District in 2013, Mundo Verde had a direct question for the design team: “How can this redevelopment and addition project teach our students to be global stewards?”

Renton Public Library in Washington by The Miller Hull Partnership

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Article source: The Miller Hull Partnership

When it opened in 1966, the Renton Public Library was an engineering feat. With pre-cast concrete and wood truss joists creating a stunning 80-foot central span across Washington State’s Cedar River and active salmon habitat, the library is beloved by generations of families and community members. Preservation of this community treasure was a clear priority for the project, but, by 2015, the library’s envelope was deteriorating and not in line with current energy codes. The structural system and chief design element did not measure up to current seismic standards, nor could it handle potential soil liquefaction.

Situated in a dense forest within the bend (and within earshot) of the nearby Tye River, this meditative retreat connects to the nature that surrounds it. As Tom Kundig describes it, \”Here, you are exposed to the wildness of where you are, to the wildness of this place.\”

Hill House in Winthrop, Washington by David Coleman Architecture

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

Article source: David Coleman Architecture

This is a modest, sustainable building with a big presence in a big landscape.

The Hill House sits on a long, narrow, rocky ridge line, sloping gently to the south and steeply to the east and west. Site conditions dictated a long, narrow structure, and client expectations suggested a building deeply rooted in the landscape. The resulting project is conceived as a habitable landscape, a place to gather, shelter and rest, closely aligned with the rugged beauty of the site and responsive to the natural conditions.

bm Modular One in Washington, D.C. by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

A successful builder / developer with a history of constructing modular houses purchased a lot in a desirable neighborhood near Washington, D.C. with the intention of building a spec house.  When a potential buyer expressed interest in the lot, the developer proposed a modular house as a solution to a tight budget and time constraints.  However, the craftsman and colonial style modular houses typically built by the developer did not appeal to the potential client, who desired a light-filled, modern house.

Magnolia Remodel in Seattle, Washington by SHED Architecture & Design

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: SHED Architecture & Design

The owners saw potential in this 1914 craftsman home when they bought it in 2013. The Seattle family had the intention of restoring the home’s original details while also making modern modifications to the traditional layout on the main floor. Influenced by years of living in Japan, the clients wanted a clean and simple aesthetic to suit their minimal lifestyle. The central challenge for SHED Architecture & Design was to rework the floor plan to improve the primary flow of the space. The firm made modifications to the main floor to create a feeling of continuity from the entryway to the backyard while remaining sympathetic to the structure’s native form. The Seattlebased architecture firm manipulated and built upon existing geometry to subtly introduce a new kitchen, bath, laundry and outdoor space that compliment the home’s original bay windows, angled walls and oak floors.
