Town House in Washington, DC by Robert Gurney Architect

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Built like its neighbors, over a century ago and part of a continuous network of buildings in a historical district, this town house has been completely renovated. Regulations required that the traditional limestone facade remain intact. The bottom floor of the facade has been reworked within the existing limestone composition in an effort to provide a separate entrance and storefront for a commercial tenant in the lower level. The rear facade, located in an alley has been completely reworked to provide more light into the building.

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

The Napa River House is located on a site with mature oak trees and stone pathways winding down a gently sloping hill. To avoid disturbing the paths and root structure of the trees, a single footing and tube frame (inspired by a chairlift tower) will float the main living area in the oak canopy.

Wissioming Residence in Bethesda, Maryland by Robert Gurney Architect

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

This house located in Glen Echo, Maryland is sited on a heavily wooded lot overlooking the Potomac River. Glen Echo stands as a rare enclave of modern houses in suburban Washington, DC. The new house occupies the footprint of a pre-existing house in an effort to minimally disturb the site, removing no mature hardwoods in the process. A new swimming pool is suspended twenty feet above grade to further reduce the impact to the steeply sloping site.

Zabbara shop in Turin, Italy by UAU Office

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Untraditional mention to Sicily are the strengths of this project that brings a piece of the island into San Salvario district. The shop is conceived as a bright and cosy space, where quality and tastes find their proper place. Interior design is the direct consequence of a deeper reflection upon mood and colours: the agaves reference (Zabbara in Sicilian local dialect) is clear and globally used on the whole identity project.
