Article source: Olson Kundig

Set in the harsh high desert of California, Sawmill is a family retreat embedded into the tough, scrubby landscape.

100 Norfolk in New York by ODA

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Article source: ODA

Beyond an acute awareness of elements such as context and the needs of its community, ODA New York’s brand DNA is earmarked, in particular, by a special dexterity with—or even mastery of—the city’s byzantine zoning code; a kind of sixth sense for navigating the various restrictions and regulations in a way that enables ODA to consistently challenge architectural convention. That zoning facility is on full display in the brand’s latest multifamily masterstroke. Indeed, located on NYC’s lower east side, 100 Norfolk quite literally turns convention on its head.

Renasant Bank in Memphis, Tennessee by brg3s Architects

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Article source: brg3s Architects

Union Avenue is dominated by retail developments with asphalt parking areas separating the building facades from the street. The design challenges this trend by bringing the building forward interrupting the ubiquitous line of parked automobiles. This urban design approach provides enhanced visibility for the retail center’s tenants, and provides pedestrian amenities along a typically car-centric corridor. Vehicular parking is provided at the north side of the building where primary entrances to each tenant are located.

The Annex in Los Angeles, California by MARTIN FENLON ARCHITECTURE

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Article source: MARTIN FENLON ARCHITECTURE

Once a crowded property with an aging bungalow and a commercial storefront, this live/work complex accommodates the architect’s growing family and practice. The expansion to the recently remodeled bungalow includes a new family room, exterior courtyard and deck, an attic conversion and stair hall. The storefront building, with its several bootleg additions, previously took up half of the site, exceeding the allowable floor area for the property and leaving little open space. In order to make space for the new yard and the 620 square feet of additions to the house, over 600 square feet of the storefront was demolished. To keep costs down, the architect did all of the construction with the help of a two-man crew over the course of almost 5 years.

House Set On The Valley Floor in California by ATELIER JØRGENSEN

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Article source: ATELIER JØRGENSEN

Set within the vineyards and close to the center of town, the site for the house is a large plot of land dotted with full grown trees and vineyards.

The project consists of two houses connected with glass. Each house is protected from a busy road with two ‘L’ Shaped walls – one is stone and one is cedar. A number of pieces behind these walls are arranged together around courtyards and terraces. In turn giving rise to a sequence of individual gardens, each with their own individual ambience – gardens set among other limitless gardens. A system of slender spaces act like paths connecting the gardens, courtyards, and interior spaces, each embracing and respecting the landscape.

Griffin School is a college preparatory high school located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Austin, TX. The school’s diverse, liberal arts curriculum and creative student body define its reputation. For many years the school has occupied an assemblage of buildings in a residential neighborhood. The campus consists of a repurposed church, a house converted to classrooms, and a small workshop.

As an active non-partisan think-tank organization dedicated to health and wellness, the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) plays host to a revolving door of meetings and seminars throughout the week. KHI engaged Hufft to renovate the first floor of their historic building to maximize the efficiency, hospitality and capacity of their conference center. The resulting design provides a collection of meeting spaces that accommodate a variety of group sizes and meeting styles. The rooms include several closed-door cubbies for individual work and quiet contemplation, small meeting rooms for collaborative brainstorming, and a sequence of larger spaces with flexible partitions that can expand to accommodate presentations for up to 170 people.

HCA Healthcare Parking Garage in Nashville, Tennessee by Cascade Architectural

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Article source: Cascade Architectural

Cascade Architectural, the international leader in the design, engineering, manufacturing, and installation coordination of coiled wire fabric systems, recently provided a near 4,000 sq. ft. of ¼” 16-gauge stainless steel fabric for the new parking garage on the campus of HCA Healthcare.

For this project, coiled wire fabric is relied on to define the architectural style of the parking garage. It conveys a clean and modern aesthetic – fulfilling the requirements outlined by the project team and the city of Nashville.

The site of the HCA Building 4 parking garage is in an urban overlay zone – requiring the building’s design to abide by a specific set of urban overlay standards. These standards required that the parking garage have an articulated façade to minimize the visual impact of the structure and add life to the street. Collaborative Studio, in need of a product with enhanced design features, called upon Cascade Architectural.
