Architecture of San Francisco International Airport by SOM Architects

September 21, 2009 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Architecture of San Francisco International Airport, designed by SOM Architects. Located in San Francisco, California. This iconic structure creates a powerful identity for both the airport and the City of San Francisco. Its form and aesthetic stem directly from functional necessity—the roof’s wing-like form directly expresses the structural diagram of its bending forces. The building is the largest base-isolated structure in the world. [ SOM Architects ]

Pool Pavilion and Gardens Design by Robert M.Cain Architect

September 20, 2009 By: archinhome Category: contemporary house design, Home Design

Atlanta Pool Pavilion and Gardens Design by Robert M.Cain Architect. A new screened pavilion and gardens were added to and around an existing house with pool built in the 1920s in a Frederick Law Olmsted-designed subdivision in Atlanta. The building lot is extremely deep with views extending into a neighboring climax hardwood forest. Prior to this project, the site was a series of typically unrelated backyard and side-yard elements added haphazardly over the years resulting in a chaotic feeling.The “gossamer” qualities of the new screened pavilion intentionally blur the distinction between the interior and exterior. Locating the floor level of the addition at mid-level between the house main floor and the level of the pool cancels the original perception of the house as psychologically separate. Instead of house and yard, the redesigned whole becomes a linked series of interior and exterior “rooms” and spaces with a natural sense of repose and a feeling it was all originally meant to be this way.

Lenovo Office Interior Design by Gensler Architects. In consolidating its North American offices into a single national headquarters, Lenovo wanted an environment that reinforces its brand attributes and personality. Gensler responded with a space that exudes innovation, imagination, entrepreneurial spirit and approachability. In two five-story buildings and one four-story building, open planning enhances communication with “touchdown stations,” team rooms, informal meeting areas and a central conference zone on each workplace floor. The palette is neutral — from natural stone to exposed concrete — to contrast the thematic graphics and nature imagery. The complex also includes a customer center, cafeteria, café/store, full conference center and auditorium, training rooms, product showroom and labs. [ Gensler Architects ]
