Ravine Residence by BNIM

BNIM is well known for its environmentally responsible design work—and that’s an understatement. The firm has been instrumental in the creation of the USGBC, the organization’s LEED building standards, and the AIA’s Committee on the Environment. For the most part, firm architects have applied their research and practice to large-scale projects. Single-family custom projects have…


House on a Pond by Cutler Anderson

Architecture is, by definition, site-specific, or, as architect James Cutler, FAIA, would clarify: landscape-specific. Whereas site suggests something merely physical, the word landscape connotes a living, dynamic place that we engage with on multiple levels—emotional, spiritual, conceptual. Like all Cutler Anderson Architects’ projects, the house he designed in southern New England is carefully tuned to…

03 Whistler Nic Lehoux-2

Whistler Residence by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Everyone’s idea of a private oasis is different. For some, paradise is a tropical beach and endless summer. For others, it’s the mountains and four changing seasons of beauty and recreation. It was most assuredly the latter for the London family who commissioned this house in the Canadian ski mecca of Whistler, British Columbia. They…

Design Lab: Tucson Residence by Mancusi Design and Victor Sidy Architect

Tucson Residence by Mancusi Design and Victor Sidy Architect

When architects Victor Sidy and Nick Mancusi first walked this hillside site with their clients, the word that came to mind was “intimate.” Although it lies just a few miles west of downtown Tucson and within city limits, the land is virtually untouched desert, and a wash that runs down from the Tucson Mountains supports…

Design Lab: Hillside Residence by Robert M. Cain Architect

Hillside Residence by Robert M. Cain Architect

It’s not an easy decision to tear down your parents’ house—the one you grew up in—even when it has a Mansard roof, Tennessee crab orchard flooring, and orange shag carpet. The deep memory of home is a powerful, beckoning force, and it requires an equally potent force to quiet its call and move on...


Hull House by David Jameson Architect

Hull House by David Jameson Architect

David Jameson, FAIA, has a knack for the conceptual. Consider the names he’s given some of his residential projects: Bar Code House, BlackWhite Residence, PushPull, Jigsaw, Warp and Weft. The most recent example is the Hull House, so named for its vaulted interior in which living spaces unspool under rakish folded rooflines. Jameson took as…

Design Lab: Artery House by Hufft

Artery House by Hufft

Contemporary art is a big business these days, with pieces by prominent artists such as Cindy Sherman and Jeff Koons fetching millions of dollars. But the contemporary art these homeowners collect is big in another way. After years of displaying large-format pieces in their beautiful old traditional home, they were running out of staging areas.…

Chestnut Street Townhouse by Hacin + Associates

Chestnut Street Townhouse by Hacin + Associates

There’s history, and then there’s history. As a relatively young country, our architectural legacy doesn’t have a long tail—at least when it comes to our urban dwellings. Many of our loveliest older buildings were felled before preservation-minded folks put protections in place…

Design Lab: North Penn Residence by Deborah Berke Partners

North Penn Residence by Deborah Berke Partners

There is something comforting about a house that is easy to understand. Exhausted after a particularly brutal day at work? What a relief, then, to arrive at your house—a simple bar-shaped structure with a see-through central living area. Your children’s bedrooms are on one side of the house and your office and master suite are…


House on the Point by Stelle Lomont Rouhani

A private oasis doesn’t require vast acreage to accomplish—that is, if you have a skillful, experienced architect guiding the design. The clients for this house in Water Mill, near the better-known Hamptons, were wise in their choice of Viola Rouhani, AIA. Her firm, Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects, are practically the town architects…



Do You Have a Great Case Study?

What do we look for in projects? The exceptional, the unusual, the ambitious, and the delightful. Any custom residential project is eligible if it is under four or so years old, not widely published on a national basis (either in print or online)…


Real Projects Start With the Industry Standard
