Project: Mariposa1038 * Location: Los Angeles, California * #Architect: @loharchitects * #Photo: @paulvu.photography _________________________________ 2018 Housing Awards _________________________________ As one of the densest neighborhoods in the country, Los Angeles’ Koreatown is at the forefront of changing modes of contemporary urban living. The design for Mariposa1038 plays with this burgeoning area’s density with a pure cube extruded to fit tight on its lot, and then formed to gesture back to the public street and surrounding context. To blur the distinction between public and private spheres, the design pushes the cube inward on each side, creating curves that grant relief from the sidewalk and return portions of the ground plane to the public realm. The carved opening creates a central focal point for the building’s interior organization and lets natural light into the courtyard. The courtyard ribbon draws the eye upwards and creates continuity from floor to floor. All units have exterior access and can be cooled by cross ventilation. A rooftop deck provides additional outdoor space and skyline views. _________________________________ #whatanarchitectdoes #lifeofanarchitect #architecture #architects #architect #acrhitetura #architexture #ig_architecture #architecturedesign #excellent_structure #architecturedaily #picoftheday #takemebacktuesday #architecturephotography #architecture_lovers #architects_vision #architectslife #architecturelovers

Project: #Photographer's Loft * Location: New York City * #Architect: @desaichiaarchitecture * #Photo: @paul_warchol _________________________________ 2018 AIA Awards - Interior Architecture _________________________________ The design team capitalized on the existing cast iron column structures to create an open flow throughout the home, taking advantage of long axial views through the space. Concealed pocket doors can be deployed when privacy is needed. The design hinges on the library and reception area, which divides the loft into two discrete zones: the private domain of the photographer’s studio and bedroom; and the public domain of the kitchen, dining, and living areas. _________________________________ #WorldPhotographyDay #interiordesign #archilovers #architecturelovers #arquitectura #homedesign #architecture_magazine #architecture_best #architecture_view #architecture_lovers #architecturephotography #architecturephotography #architecture_greatshots #architecturepicture #photographerslife #PhotographersOfInstagram #photographersoninstagram #photographersofIG #photographerforhire #photographersgallery #photographerlovers #photographerspics #photographerlifestyle #photographerforlife

Project: Michigan Loft * Location: Chicago, Illinois * #Architect: Vladimir Radutny Architects * Photo: @mikeyschwartz _________________________________ 2019 Small Project Awards _________________________________ Inside a century old structure initially built for automotive assembly and display, we renovated a residence that was poorly functioning as a domestic space. Scaled architectural components, material restraint and theatrical lighting, lessens the overall spatial dominance, while openness and clarity of space is maintained. The continuous wood platform organizes the vastness of the open room, providing an edge for more intimate furniture arrangement and a designation for objects on display. Clad in steel, the sleeping cube is situated away from the perimeter for greater noise and temperature control, it’s a visual anchor that transforms, revealing one of many uses contained within. As one moves between the meandering levels, a variety of unexpected views and conditions are revealed, bringing the homeowners closer with the raw qualities of the industrial raw cloak that is their home. _________________________________ #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #architecturelover #architecturestudent #architecturedesign #tinyhouse #architecturephoto #loftapartment #lofthouse #architecturesketch #loftinterior #architecturelife #architecturegram #architectureandpeople #architecturelove #architecturedaily #architecturestudents #loftdecor #architecturedetail #architecturedetails #architecturephotos #loftliving #loftdesign #architecturefactor #architecturestudio #loftstyle

Organized around a large central atrium and stair, the program includes a large town hall and dining space on the ground floor, plentiful open workspace on the upper three floors, meeting rooms, lounge spaces, a maker lab, coffee bar, and design studio. To allow for glimpses of all four floors, the existing atrium was extended to the ground floor to create a central void. On the workspace levels, the atrium is encircled with primary circulation avenues, with banks of workstations along the perimeter to take full advantage of natural light. _________________________________ #design #interiordesign #artistsoninstagram #pinterest #pinterestinspired #pinteresting #pinterestphoto #art #interiordesign #archilovers #architecturelovers #style #arquitectura #decor #homedesign #artist #architecture #architecture_magazine #architecture_best #architecture_lovers #architecture_hunter #architecture_greatshots #architecturepicture #architectureproject #interiores #designlife #designerdeinteriores #interiordesign

The project echoes the iconic Charleston single house, with piazzas that function much like porches. These wide, open-air corridors provide external circulation and surround an airy central courtyard. Lined with ample seating, the corridors encourage interaction and extend the residents’ living space. Louvered shutters allow residents to adjust the amount of shade to their liking while creating an ever-changing façade. _________________________________ #architecturecity #architecturestudent #architecturecostmanagement #ArchitectureConcept #architecturepic #architectureyou #architectureamizing #architectureurelovers #architecturenew #architecturephotograph #architecturedrawing #architecturerender #architecturefamily #architectureanddesign #architecturesnob #charlestonsc #architectureproject #architecturecompetion #architectureofimpossible #architecturedays #architecturesociety #architecturephoto #charlestonarchitecture #architecturejunkies #architecturecompany

Project: Richard Ivey Building * Location: : London, Ontario, Canada * #Architect: @hariripontariniarchitects * #Photo: @nikolaskoenig _________________________________ 2016 Education Facility Design Awards _________________________________ The vision for the Richard Ivey Building was creation of a vibrant, unified campus that would attract the best students and faculty, express the school’s global identity, and celebrate Western University itself. Located on the western edge of the university’s campus at an active corner, the Richard Ivey Building is a beacon, a signifier of the school’s flagship status. Echoing the architecture of Western University's campus and the adjacent Brescia College, the solid masonry on the exterior conveys the traditional materiality of the University’s Gothic architecture, making it a modern building rooted in tradition. _________________________________ #architecture #architecturewelove #architecturephotos #architecturecanada #architectureprojects #architectureschool #architecturebiennial #architectureloverw #architectureslovers #ArchitectureDesignArt #architecturejournal #architectureisart #architecturephothography #archilife #architecturecontemporaine #architectureofcanada #architecturefriends #architecturedisign #architecturedays #architecturemodelmaking #architecturesketch #architecturemodel #architecturearches #architecturemodels #architectureinterieur #education #architecturefans

The 32,000-square-foot library replaces an existing facility, which was one of Prince George’s County’s most heavily used libraries. Its architecture provides a pedestrian-friendly solution that solidifies the library’s institutional presence while improving and respecting the park. Designed to serve a patron base that is increasingly immersed in technology, the design team maximized connections between the interior space, landscape, and surrounding community to heighten sensory excitement. Patrons are provided numerous opportunities to bask in sunlight, enjoy the change of seasons, and experience color and texture.

A large indoor viewing auditorium, part of Eero Saarinen’s legendary complex for the automotive giant, has allowed the GM Styling team to view its designs in an open space regardless of weather since 1956. The 180-foot-diameter domed space provides indirect lighting and a shadowless environment for evaluating the form and finish of the company’s vehicles. To enhance the relevance of this landmark—which has endured for years as the primary display space for GM products as well as a large meeting space—the architects integrated new technologies and updated the original design team’s creative interventions, while remaining consistent with the original design.

Nestled in a natural Ouachita Mountain hillside along Lake Hamilton at Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, Arkansas, the Evans Children’s Adventure Garden welcomed a new tree house to the grounds that will provide an interactive educational experience for visiting children as part of an ambitious plan to bring children back into the woods. This unique structure is a defining small project for the design team. From design to fabrication, they were able to merge their childhood-earned knowledge of the natural world with their hard-earned think, make, do philosophy.

In 2012, UBC sent more swimmers to the London Olympic summer games than anywhere else in Canada, sporting the most successful swim team in the country. Meanwhile, the explosive market-driven expansion of the endowment lands and burgeoning campus community, created the fastest growing youth and family population in Vancouver's lower mainland. The new aquatic centre was required to meet the needs of both these groups with a high-performance training/competition venue and a community aquatic centre, all within a single facility.

2019 Housing Awards ———————— • Georgica Cove • Location: East Hampton, New York • Architect: @batesmasi • Photo: Bates Masi + Architects As with connected farms, a limited palette of materials and details unifies the various spaces and responds to the local climate. The cedar shingles common to local buildings are scaled up to the size of boards to cover the roof and sidewalls. A limestone plinth filled with sand elevates the house above the floodplain while also creating drywells to accept storm water runoff. Oak floors and millwork throughout unify the spaces. #architect #architects #archilovers #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #instaarchitecture #architecture #architizer #archhunter #architectures #sustainability #design #picoftheday #exterior #countryside #newengland

2019 Housing Awards ———————— • Georgica Cove • Location: East Hampton, New York • Architect: @batesmasi • Photo: Bates Masi + Architects The program is divided into personal, guest, and public areas. The spaces are arranged around a #courtyard to create visual and physical connections between them, that can be broken by large sliding doors. Independent #mechanical systems in each building allows it to be shut down when unoccupied. #whatanarchitectdoes #lifeofanarchitect #architecture #architects #architect #acrhitetura #architexture #ig_architecture #architecturedesign #excellent_structure #architecturedaily #picoftheday #exterior #rural_houses #countryside

2019 Housing Awards ———————— • Georgica Cove • Location: East Hampton, New York • Architect: @batesmasi • Photo: Bates Masi + Architects A couple with property on a cove overlooking the ocean asked for a house that would be comfortable for just the two of them the majority of the time. However, with their love of entertaining, the house had to grow on busy weekends. To instill the desired sense of comfort and peace, it was also important that the design blend with the pastoral setting and vernacular building traditions: predominantly shingle style homes that are often built and added to over time. Referencing New England connected farms in an #innovative way achieved both goals. #architect #architects #archilovers #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #instaarchitecture #exterior #architecture #architizer #archhunter #architectures #rural #design #picoftheday #newengland

2019 Housing Awards ——————— • Mirror Point • Location: Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia • Architect: @mackaylyonssweetapple • Photo: MLSA and @jamesbrittainphotographs #Fishing is one of Nova Scotia’s oldest industries, demonstrated by the weathered #fishing shacks lining its coast. The rusted steel aedicule contains a sunken outdoor summer kitchen, which offers a sheltered place for the grandparents to watch their grandchildren playing on the beach. The garage/bunkie acts as a miniature version of the main house. #whatanarchitectdoes #lifeofanarchitect #architecture #architects #architect #acrhitetura #architexture #ig_architecture #architecturedesign #excellent_structure #architecturedaily #picoftheday #nature #exteriordesign

2019 Housing Awards —————————— • Oak Park Housing • Location: Sacramento, California • Architect: @johnsenschmaling • Photo: Johnsen Schmaling Architects The houses are simple, two-story volumes, their appearance crisp but deliberately playful in a nod to the #progressive spirit of the neighborhood. The buildings’ south facades transform into an articulated fields of vertical metal louvers that act as both sun screen and compositional device. The metered spacing of the louvers sets up a dynamic cadence, their prismatic colors complementing the homes’ otherwise neutral, muted tones and cheerfully reverberating the vivid, kaleidoscopic hues of the buildings and murals nearby. #architect #architects #archilovers #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #instaarchitecture #exterior #architecture #architizer #archhunter #architectures #sustainability #design #picoftheday
