    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

    CORBU'S MAISON TERNISIEN

    The house was designed for a couple who approached Le Corbusier after he lectured at the Sorbonne in 1924.

    The overall building form is influenced by the shape of the triangular site and the interior by the requirement of merging two different programs: a double-height space with a sleeping balcony for the wife's painting studio and a pie-shaped one-story space for the husband's music studio. — Published 2013.0130

    RENOVATING FAY JONES

    While the work of a master painter or sculptor might be nurtured in climate-controlled galleries for centuries, the works of master architects are often lived in, worked in, enjoyed by crowds, exposed to the weather, and vulnerable to owners' whims. Architecture lovers can hope that their favorite structures are cared for by conscientious stewards, but aside from the use of preservation easements, there are few real guarantees. — Published 2012.0523

    DISTILLED FARMHOUSE

    Compelled by sentimentality and the knowledge that the former owners (a farm family) would be retained to work the land, a Chicago couple commissioned architect Margaret McCurry to convert a 26-acre (11-hectare) farm in Galien, Michigan, into an expanded family compound while preserving as much as was practical of the original farmhouse. — Published 2012.0411

    CREATIVE CONCRETE

    When we think of sustainability, images of solar panels, thick insulation, and rainwater cisterns might come to mind. But Canadian architect and researcher Mark West is rethinking the bones of concrete structures to find ways to make them as efficient as possible.

    West is director of the University of Manitoba's Centre for Architectural Structures and Technology (CAST), where the research revolves around fabric-formed concrete. The process uses pliable fabric to make innovative, efficient structural shapes. — Published 2012.0328

    GAP HOUSE, LONDON

    Placed improbably between a pair of historical listed buildings, the contemporary facade of Gap House is a mere 2.4 meters (7.9 feet) wide. This new-build four-bedroom family home, winner of the RIBA Manser Medal for residential architecture, was designed by architect Luke Tozer of Pitman Tozer Architects for himself and his family. — Published 2012.0222

    FALSE BAY WRITER'S CABIN

    The False Bay Writer's Cabin serves as a private writer's retreat and guest cottage on San Juan Island, Washington. The owners asked for a space that felt connected to its island setting — the mild climate, scenic views, and proximity to wildlife. At the same time, they needed a structure that could be easily secured when not in use. — Published 2012.0104

    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

    MAISON CARRÉ BY ALVAR AALTO

    Maison Carré in Bazoches-sur-Guyonne, France, is a private house by Alvar Aalto which is to a major extent stamped by the owner being an art collector: one could say that it is at the same time a private palais and a gallery. — Published 2011.0831

    POSTCARD FROM AN ESTUARY

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    Houseboats, by and large, do their best to recreate the quotidian comforts of the standard dwelling in compact, waterborne form. Any greater sea-living aspirations are often left to the overreaching desires, and budgets, of the yachting set. — Published 2011.0914
