The concept is to explore the individual case studies, and projects in order to better understand the concepts and the process of the studio. If you are interested in asking questions or discussing certain aspects of projects - give us a call. We also have some videos on Vimeo that will show some of the material explorations and furniture development. For videos, click here.
This is the most significant architectural project to date. It represents not just a fully developed project, integrated with its site. It represents a strong set of architectural concepts and ideas that are very relevant and worth taking a little bit of time to explore. Lastly, overall this project is a window into some wild cowboy days in the recent architectural history.
The D Bridge Project is a perfect example of the design process. We won an AIA TAP Award for the Best Use of Technology in Design, 2015. It has real breadth and the digital design tools were very sophisticated, which allowed the fabrication and assembly to be the opposite. Our design challenge was to create a logic and set of systems that could be built fast track/offsite and light touch on the property.
This is a house that was designed for a site in Ruidoso, NM. This is another good example of process. A very tight set of site constraints and a normal residential cost per square foot. It was a really unique approach to the context development. We slept in tents on site and developed a virtual set of context models using controlled data points and simple digital tools. The resulting digital environments allowed us to accurately and fluidly develop the design from Philly. The project is on hold but hopeful.
This project represents a good example of a residential projects potential. It is actually a huge house, 9000sf, but we had a very down to earth client that valued simplicity and felt naturally compelled to not over-do-it. The cost per square foot were less than average, the results were way above average. We executed the design work and fabricated many beautiful objects within this project, making it a great example of Point B thinking and craft.
