The Thumb House in Madison, Wisconsin by Lazor Office

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Article source: Lazor Office

It can be challenging enough to find the right frame for a painting. But what if you want to frame an ever-changing natural environment—and you also want to live inside the frame?

The spaces of the Thumb House actively engage the surrounding landscape. Where the warm wood façade of the house recedes within a zinc wrapper, a wide outdoor room opens toward the lake, framing a panoramic view of water and sky. White-stained wood lines the inside of the outdoor room, transitioning smoothly into the white interior of the house at a glass wall.

Madison Central Public Library in Wisconsin by MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

Article source: MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

The reconstruction of a worn, 45-year-old, 95,000 square-foot library has resulted in a completely reimagined building. A 25,000 square-foot expansion encloses the formerly open entry with a glass atrium space and adds a partial third floor. New flexible spaces and technologies recognize evolving community needs with dedicated areas for children and teens, public meeting rooms, a making space, and a high-tech media lab. The design also incorporates a number of sustainable design strategies, some of the most prominent of which include solar panels and a green roof.

Redaction House in Delafield, Wisconsin by Johnsen Schmaling Architects

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

Article source: Johnsen Schmaling Architects

A compact home for a fiber artist and her young family, the Redaction House sits on a narrow lot on a small suburban lake, surrounded by prosaic spec homes crowding the shoreline.

The building occupies a suburban infill site widely considered too small and too confined to accommodate a house for a family of five and provide acceptable levels of privacy and views.
