    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

    AIA MICHIGAN AWARDS 2010

    The Richmond Center for Visual Arts in Kalamazoo is striking, with building forms tied to its arts hub functions.

    Copper cladding, curving in two dimensions, wraps the lobby and front exhibit areas, setting off a large glazed facade section that allows natural light deep into the space. The lightness of the glass and copper, and of zinc that wraps the lecture areas, contrasts with the visual weight of the precast concrete panels cladding the rest of the building. — Published 2010.0811

    WOOD FLOORING - BORDERS

    It may seem counterintuitive, but an ornate floor that runs all the way to the walls of a room can often look less impressive than one surrounded by a simple border. When you walk into a room with an ornate floor like this, no hierarchy exists to tell the eye where to look and the floor can start to seem almost ordinary. — Published 2010.0728

    POSTCARD FROM MANHATTAN

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    As I walked through west Chelsea, near the Hudson River shoreline of Manhattan, a palpable sense of change was afoot — especially striking considering the impact of the recession on new construction across the nation. Among an aging urban fabric of midrise warehouse and residential buildings, many in various stages of renovation and repair, several new projects stood out. — Published 2010.0728

    HOUSE ON CAPE COD

    The client for this house on Cape Cod's Crystal Lake sought a modest and sweet country abode to replace a simple old summer cottage that sat between beautiful gardens and a sweeping lawn leading to narrow frontage on the freshwater lake.

    The pastoral site and picturesque gardens suggested English countryside cottages to the architects, Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders, and this was an image that captured the client's imagination. — Published 2010.0721

    USING BIM FOR SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

    In the process of sustainable design, at one point or another during the design or documentation process, there comes a need to quantify the energy savings, the daylighting, or the recycled content in your building materials. This is done by using other applications to run analysis on the building design and deliver these metrics. — Published 2010.0714
