    MAYBECK'S SENGER HOUSE

    "Ring in the love of truth and right [...] Ring in the thousand years of peace" —"In Memoriam"

    These lines, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, are inscribed into the Senger House's baronially scaled fireplace and set the mood for this remarkable dwelling. Medieval Teutonic imagery is stenciled throughout the house and carved into overscaled architectural woodwork — a Maybeckian evocation of his client, a professor of German at the nearby University of California. — Published 2013.0327

    WAREHOUSE LOFT CONVERSION

    Under the San Francisco South Beach Redevelopment Plan of 1981, the Oriental Warehouse was designated an historic landmark due to its historical value as the early arrival point of Oriental immigrants.

    The brick warehouse, originally built in 1868, with a total area of 88,000 square feet (8,200 square meters) on two floors had for many years been used as a warehouse and storage space. — Published 2013.0213

    WILLIAM WURSTER - HOUSES

    Thinking back, an image that most endures in my mind is the white tower and compound of William Wurster's Gregory House (1929) in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    The Gregory Farmhouse, as it's usually referenced, is a misnomer: it is a country retreat designed and built between 1927 and 1929, a place of the soul, no doubt, for a very sophisticated San Francisco family. — Published 2011.1130

    SHUBIN + DONALDSON - FROM FUEL TO BISCUIT

    The apparent placelessness of Los Angeles, where one community bleeds into another with little visible distinction, can partially be attributed to its major industries — advertising, television, movies, the web — because these businesses live placelessly, mostly in periodicals, or on screens in the theater, in the family room, and at the desk. — Published 2011.1130

    SAN FRANCISCO ROOFTOP APARTMENT

    This apartment, within an old paint factory in San Francisco, was created when the owner decided to add a home to his studio. It was important to separate the work area from the personal, which occupies a new level built atop the original rectangular structure. Tanner Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects designed the addition and renovation project. — Published 2011.0810

    HS#9 BY COOP HIMMELB(L)AU

    "Revolution 9" is a song recorded by the Beatles and released on The White Album in 1968, that heady year when students were demonstrating across Europe, the Vietnam War was at a fever pitch, and Coop Himmelb(l)au was founded in Vienna. The song has been described as the best-known work of avant-garde music and the most disliked moment of any Beatles album. — Published 2011.0810

    CALIFORNIA HOUSES OF GORDON DRAKE

    Over and over again, Gordon Drake declared that it was his avowed intention to design decent homes for people on minimum budgets. It is natural enough, therefore, that he will be best remembered for his small homes designed for California living.

    One kind of assessment of his work can be approached through looking at the things that he used. — Published 2011.0713

    POSTCARD FROM LOS ANGELES

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    I recently ventured to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to see the new Resnick Pavilion designed by Renzo Piano. As I approached the pavilion from Wilshire Boulevard, I was impressed by how impeccably it seems to mimic the adjacent Broad Contemporary Art Museum (BCAM), another recent LACMA building by Piano. Both structures are clad in travertine slabs, both sport fanlike roofs to allow daylight into the galleries, both are accented with bright red exterior elements — staircases on BCAM and sculptural HVAC equipment on the Resnick Pavilion — and yet the two buildings manifest entirely different takes on museum typology. — Published 2010.1020

    LODI BUNKHOUSE

    Situated on a vineyard in the flatlands of the Napa Valley, in St. Helena, California, the Lodi Bunkhouse's narrow parcel parallels the Napa River and abandoned Southern Pacific rail line. The bunkhouse's planning, fenestration, and assembly reverberate with the site's inherent orders of directionality and scale. Functioning as an artist's retreat, the program includes open studios, communal domestic zones, and individual bunkrooms. — Published 2010.0811
