A special thanks to Kon von der Schulenburg of the fantastic architecture firm Cantrell Crowley in Dublin, Ireland who shared this article and brilliant infographic on urban planning with us.

Cantrell Crowley IG v2 Feb

Year after year, urban planning has changed radically. The building of cities and towns has a multifaceted and complex history. Although urban planning has only been recognised as an urban profession for less than a century, cities all over the world highlight the different elements of conscious design from everything from layout to functionality.

Since the dawn of time, cities have provided protection from outside forces and have been centres of government. In history, during attacks, the surrounding countryside rural community fled behind cities’ walls and fortresses, where defence forces assembled to resist the enemy. With the introduction of modern aerial warfare, cities have become key targets for destruction rather than safe zones.

Consequently, over time, the needs of cities changed. The concentration of talent, economic surplus and the mixture of peoples have allowed for a grounds of the evolution of human culture, from the scientific research to technical innovation.

From Giambattista Nolli to Jean Gottamn, architects have created some of the most influential urban designs in history. Let’s take a look at this infographic that has some simple visualisations of complex planning ideas that have changed how we live.

This combined office and home with pool and integrated landscape is comprised of three systems: a long galvanized metal wall folds over to serve as the roof and carport; a series of material samples separated by glass forms the envelope; and an exposed concrete slab on the grade contains radiant heat, plumbing, electrical, and up-lighting. The 104-foot long wedge evolves from a 22-foot wide studio, through a combined kitchen-lounge-gallery, to an 11-foot wide bedroom at the eastern end. With no interior doors, two floating cores for storage and bathrooms provide the only spatial separation, aided by the production of distinct moods though the disposition of materials and the organization of lighting conditions. An 18-foot long ribbon window transforms traffic into a continuously changing cinematic event. A large “letter box” opening in the living area offers deep views of nature across neighboring backyards. Titled the Off-Use House by the architects, this unique space has been featured by Architecture, L.A. Architect, The Los Angeles Times, Metropolitan Home, and Sunset magazine.

Hatgil Residence, 1965

Here on a gently sloping wooded site in scenic West Lake Hills only minutes from downtown and the best public and private schools in Austin, U.T. professor emeritus Paul Hatgil brought his polymathic fine art background to the design and construction of this Mid-Century Modern masterpiece, while subsequent additions and remodeling by KRDB, Paul Lamb, and Gregory Thomas have brought the home into the new millennium with contemporary finishes and fittings that dialogue between old and new. Inspired by architect Richard Neutra, the design is fluent in the language of modern architecture with an open plan, exposed post and beam structure, floor to ceiling glass, clerestory windows, and the judicious interplay of forms and materials. The focal point of the spacious living room is a dramatic wood-burning fireplace with cantilevered concrete hearth, exposed metal flue and stacked stone wall that continues beyond the building envelope, drawing the eye outdoors to the treetop ipe wood deck. At each end of the home are two separate and spacious master bedroom suites, each with its own entry, ideal for in-laws and overnight guests. A screened-in outdoor living room provides a central meeting place for outdoor dining and hill country viewing, collecting north-south breezes, and distributing this natural air conditioning throughout the house. A Hatgil designed fountain and tranquil Koi pond draw the eye and ear, while highlighting the natural but sculpted landscaping.

Steps to Abbot Kinney and the beach, this dynamic urban intervention is a rare private residence by Viennese architects Coop Himmelb(l)au, and the first project built by the Austrian team in the United States. Here the architects explode the constraints of functionalism into a thousand pieces, in the process creating a complex sculptural form interwoven with the apparatus of living. An impeccable Bulthaup kitchen and the finest European fixtures and appliances set an uncompromising standard of elegance inside, disguised by the raw drama of the exterior. The expressive use of concrete, glass and structural steel is tempered by an open plan with direct connections to the landscape, natural wood ceilings, the play of daylight and cool ocean breezes. At the top, a generous roof deck command s panoramic 360-degree views from the Getty Center to the Hollywood sign and mountains beyond downtown.

Cranfill Apartments, 1959

Hidden on a quiet residential street eight blocks from the University of Texas, this triplex of loft apartments is among the best work of the award-winning Mid-Century Modern architect. Organized around a central courtyard surrounding a majestic Live Oak, the intimate complex is a serene, communal environment seemingly removed from the busy world outside. Inside, the double-height living space is complimented by an open-mezzanine bedroom above and a kitchen/dining area tucked below, with all spaces connecting seamlessly to the bamboo forest beyond, visible through a 2-story wall of glass. Original appointments have been well preserved, including ergonomic cabinetry, redwood siding, original paint colors and decorative light fixtures. Architects Ernesto Cragnolino of Alterstudio and Krista Whitson of Mell Lawrence Architects have brought the property into the new millennium respectfully, creating an additional bedroom, luxurious bath finishes and hardwood floors to match original specifications.  Unanimously approved by the Historic Landmark Commission, this special offering is a fine example of architecture in harmony with its context, melding formal Modernist principles with the landscape, climate and materials of the region.

Artist’s Live/Work Space

Legal Mixed Use: Commercial Gallery, Residential Apartment

In the heart of the Chinatown art scene, this unique live/work loft has an apartment upstairs, a gallery at street level and a workshop in the basement. Zone LAC2 for “mixed use” (Commercial, Office & Residential), the legal uses for this property are seemingly endless. The glass storefront is a magnet for retail customers by day and a lantern illuminating the neighborhood at night. The 2-stroy 1,600 SF gallery is divided into 2 smaller spaces, each with private office and mezzanine. The 3 BD, 1 BA, 1,200 SF apartment on top is a diamond in the rough, ready for a complete remodel, but one of few properties with a balcony overlooking the walk street and panoramic rooftop views. The workshop effectively doubles the commercial square footage, with a substantial darkroom, meditation space and art studio. Walk to the Gold Line, Union Station, Olvera Street and downtown from this exceptional property- ideal for owner/occupancy. 4,000 square feet total, including a basement workshop.

Marfa House 1 (Hill Residence)

Marfa, Texas is 200 miles from anywhere, yet Vanity Fair describes it as an international art world epicenter, where the intelligentsia flies in on private jets to rub shoulders with urban expats, outsider artists & local cowboys. North of the small city center, Barbara Hill transformed this old adobe house into a timeless residence that features an exterior casita. The quiet adobe blocks have been preserved and supported by exposed steel beams. The New York Times calls the Marfa House “A Contemporary Retreat with a 100-year-old Soul”. Inside, the overwhelming serenity of the space is magnified by white plaster walls, minimalist architectural features and a collection of mid-century designer furniture. The embracing aura of this organic home makes it attractive to owners in search of a peaceful residential home.

The Marfa House will be open October 12-13 during Chinati Weekend. More information: http://chinati.org/programs/chinati-weekend

In a family-friendly neighborhood on the quiet side of Lincoln, this recently renovated bungalow is a pleasant study in contradictions. Close to the beach, yet far from the Boardwalk bustle; thoroughly Modern, yet rooted in 1920’s craft; open and airy, yet filled with intimate spaces. Here the architect has finessed these conditions to create a cohesive architectural statement, effectively reconciling old and new. Living, dining and kitchen form a spacious open volume where tall ceilings, skylights and clerestory windows define an artistic lifestyle, enriched by entertaining. A huge glass pocket door opens the entire space to an outdoor deck and private garden. Beds and baths are secluded on the other side, with hardwood and polished concrete floors, ceramic tile and French doors open to the landscape. A separate garage studio looks onto a green lawn, fruit trees and a children’s tree house, so rare in this urban context. 3 BD, 2.5 BA, 1,800 SF including studio.

Artist’s Live/Work Space

Legal Mixed Use: Commercial Gallery, Residential Apartment

In the heart of the Chinatown art scene, this unique live/work loft has an apartment upstairs, a gallery at street level and a workshop in the basement. Zone LAC2 for “mixed use” (Commercial, Office & Residential), the legal uses for this property are seemingly endless. The glass storefront is a magnet for retail customers by day and a lantern illuminating the neighborhood at night. The 2-story 1,600 SF gallery is divided into 2 smaller spaces, each with private office and mezzanine. The 3 BD, 1 BA, 1,200 SF apartment on top is a diamond in the rough, ready for a complete remodel, but one of few properties with a balcony overlooking the walk street and panoramic rooftop views. The workshop effectively doubles the commercial square footage, with a substantial darkroom, meditation space and art studio. Walk to the Gold Line, Union Station, Olvera Street and downtown from this exceptional property- ideal for owner/occupancy. 4,000 square feet total, including a basement workshop.

R.M. Schindler, Architect

 

Preserved in time in the woodland hills south of Ventura Boulevard, this time capsule of “Space Architecture” remains intact in virtually original condition, untouched but for the ravages of the elements. One of the architect’s largest homes, built for an early Hollywood actor and his family, a rustic country house executed in a sophisticated modern vocabulary. Here Schindler departs from the language of flat roofs and plaster skin, introducing asymmetrical  gables, exposed wood interiors, blue-green flagstone patios and fireplace inglenooks in a nod toward Wright’s Taliesin West. The forward-looking genius of the design is evinced by tightly interlocking volumes, folded planes, butt-glazed corners, sloping walls and ceilings, polygonal windows – ahead of its time seventy years later. This magnificent home awaits the restoring hands of a kind steward to preserve this historic resource for future generations.

Architect: Harwell Hamilton Harris

Hidden on a quiet residential street eight blocks from the University of Texas, this triplex of loft apartments is among the best work of the award-winning Mid-Century Modern architect. Organized around a central courtyard surrounding a majestic Live Oak, the intimate complex is a serene, communal environment seemingly removed from the busy world outside. Inside, the double-height living space is complimented by an open-mezzanine bedroom above and a kitchen/dining area tucked below, with all spaces connecting seamlessly to the bamboo forest beyond, visible through a 2-story wall of glass. Original appointments have been well preserved, including ergonomic cabinetry, redwood siding, original paint colors and decorative light fixtures. Architects Ernesto Cragnolino of Alterstudio and Krista Whitson of Mell Lawrence Architects have brought the property into the new millennium respectfully, creating an additional bedroom, luxurious bath finishes and hardwood floors to match original specifications. Unanimously approved by the Historic Landmark Commission, this special offering is a fine example of architecture in harmony with its context, melding formal Modernist principles with the landscape, climate and materials of the region.

Facing a sculptural fire pit in the scenic central courtyard, the serene open living area is anchored by a wood burning fireplace and defined by soaring Birch ceilings that unify the space and complement black structural steel. At one end, a custom kitchen features state of the art appliances and a unique cast iron sink that exaggerates the length of cabinets running wall to wall. At the other end, cleverly designed moveable closets create intimate bedroom and bath spaces separate from the main living area.

Dance Hall Redux

Houston designer Barbara Hill brings her signature style to Marfa, transforming a hundred year old adobe dance hall into what Dwell Magazine calls “a sophisticated retreat”, a minimalist Modern getaway in the West Texas desert. Facing a sculptural fire pit in the scenic central courtyard, the serene open living area is anchored by a wood burning fireplace and defined by soaring Birch ceilings that unify the space and complement black structural steel. At one end, a custom kitchen features state of the art appliances and a unique cast iron sink that exaggerates the length of cabinets running wall to wall. At the other end, cleverly designed moveable closets create intimate bedroom and bath spaces separate from the main living area. Hand-selected fixtures and carefully curated furniture give the home an easy warmth and livability, at once almost airy and ethereal yet grounded to the site. This home embodies the Marfa aesthetic: clean Modern design connected directly to the landscape.

Extreme Restoration :: Peeling Back Layers to Reveal a Hidden Architectural Treasure

Deasy/penner clients Kevin Lane and Shev Rush are business executives with a love of architecture and a weakness for restoring historic homes that have been remodeled beyond recognition. They’ve done it with homes by architects Palmer & Krisel in Palm Springs, Gregory Ain in Silver Lake, and one of the Donald Wexler Steel Homes in Palm Springs – but they almost met their match with their latest project in the Old Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs.  It’s one thing to see an old home in need of heavy restoration; it’s quite another to have little semblance of the original structure left. Like an archeologist, one must peel back layers of material to discover sometimes infinitesimal clues.  It’s the kind of painstaking work that few have the time or patience to undertake, but Lane and Rush temper the stress by reveling in every small victory along the way.

 

“Strangely, we were both told by guidance counselors growing up that we weren’t strong enough in math to be architects, and we both listened, for some reason. That didn’t curb either of our passion for architecture and design, and we’ve made it our avocation. In an age where many architectural homes have been remodeled beyond recognition, we have found it incredibly fulfilling to bring these homes back to their original states,” says Lane.

Rear of Residence Facing the Mountains (Before & After)

When they first walked into the house in 2007, they knew only that Sidney Sheldon had extensively remodeled and altered the original residence. The exterior was cosmetically finished to resemble a Spanish Revival house, the grounds were styled in a French village aesthetic, and the large original swimming pool was enclosed in a glass and steel pool house structure which covered more than half of the rear yard, blocking the mountain views.
Entryway (Before & After)

Living Room (Before & After)
“We went to see the house originally because of the roofline in the listing photos – even though it had been modified, it looked like it belonged to a mid-century ranch house. Once we got there, though, it was incredibly hard to see past the remodel. Kevin and I met in the middle after about 15 minutes and said ‘let’s go,’ but then Kevin turned around, walked into a corner, knelt down at a piece of loose carpeting, and pulled it back. That’s when we saw the terrazzo floor and started to piece together what the house actually was,” says Rush. 

Beginning in 2008, Lane and Rush began removing multiple layers of flooring to expose thousands of square feet of Italian marble and onyx poured terrazzo flooring. Added walls and enclosures were removed and replaced with original materials- clues to which were found in bits and pieces along foundations or in long-hidden places, such as the exterior vertical grooved siding, which had been covered in stucco.

Mirrored walls were restored to their original state; beautifully crafted French plaster walls (largely soundproof and thankfully quite thick, helping keep the house cool in even the warmest months) were re-skimmed. The soaring slump stone fireplace and poured concrete mantel were uncovered after removing multiple layers of mirrors, drywall, 2×4’s and mastic. Underneath the mirrors in the house’s storied bar, Lane and Rush uncovered an original bar counter – the counter retains the patina acquired via the original owner’s legendary cocktail parties.

After a months-long demolition of the pool house, the nearly half-acre property’s grounds were restored to befit the surrounding Old Las Palmas neighborhood, with manicured lawns for dogs or children to play freely alongside water-saving, drip irrigated desert landscaping, and citrus. Extensive use of native plants ensure desert wildlife proliferates – frequent visitors include flocks of western bluebirds, monarch butterflies, white owls, hummingbirds, finches and even the desert’s famous roadrunners.

 

 Dining Room (Before & After)

The pool and original flagstone pathways and patios were restored, as was one of the home’s most unique features: its large passive solar outdoor lanai featuring a rotisserie fireplace and wide expanses of terrazzo that extend the expansive living room outside. A discreet pass-through window from the indoor bar ensures cocktails can be readily procured without re-entering the house after a swim.

 

Says Lane: “One of the first houses we restored was one of the Wexler Steel Homes, so it was particularly rewarding discovering – about a third of the way into restoration – that this was Wexler & Harrison’s first residential commission. Unfortunately, the plans were lost long ago, so we were very lucky that the contractors who remodeled the home inadvertently left clues inside walls and underneath carpeting and tile that let us know what the house was originally.”

Avenel Homes :: Gregory Ain Architect, 1947

Posted: 29 Oct 2013 05:05 PM PDT

 

 

 

First time on the market: The aesthetic is modernist, the guiding precepts social as well as architectural. Architect Gregory Ain’s innovative design for ten attached homes balanced his collective clients’ brief for community and privacy, economy and flexibility. Outdoor areas vary from interactive to intimate. Inside, sliding walls separate or unify spaces to the occupants’ requirements offering one, two or three bedroom configurations. This last of the Avenel Homes is an end unit with a southwest exposure, private yard and patio, views and one-car garage plus surface parking. Having evolved over sixty-six years with its original residents, it awaits the restorative imprint of its next generation.
