The 1532 House in San Francisco, California was especially developed by Fougeron Architecture to serve as a painting studio and modern living space for the owners. Unlike other houses in the neighborhood, this project showcases a semi-transparent facade, inviting passersby to take a peek into the artistic studio, through the open slats. The interiors are minimalist and spacious, each room featuring floor to ceiling windows that partially replace the use of common walls. The bedroom bay window on the third level even captures views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

According to the architects, the overall design “incorporates two sectional moves. A horizontal one introduces a courtyard between the front and rear structures; a vertical one brings the ground floor, which includes the garage and bedrooms, down to street level. These two design elements create a powerful interplay between inside and out and between different levels of the house and studio”. The project has no less than seven outdoor spaces, as well as decks, walkways, and gardens which unfold around the living areas.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
