This is my afternoon until I fall asleep with a nap. Today we stood out in the cold for more than three hours to see our son in a holiday parade. I've worked most past weekends. Time to refresh. . . #whatthisarchitectdoes #architectbooks #modernhouse

Transformation old school into industrial appartement in Breda. Design by van Os Architecten. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This is the old class room with high ceiling and big windows for natural light. We made it into the main living area. The space was huge so we decided to split the room into a living area and a bedroom with wall in closet. ⁣ ⁣⁣ The high ceiling makes the space more vertical and is amazing. But it makes it possible to double use the height for a closet below and a photography studio above. Supercool space. The studio is pushed into the living area via a big closet. ⁣ ⁣ Do you see the big pivot door? It’s 4m high!

Transformation old school into industrial appartement in Breda. Design by van Os Architecten. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Opening between kitchen and living area. The lamp is big, it’s called the Great JJ, look it up, it’s huge!! Normal sized lamps wouldn’t fit in a big space.⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ The windows are also huge, almost 4m high. Great natural light.

Transformation old school into industrial appartement in Breda. Design by van Os Architecten. ⁣ ⁣ This is the old school hallway where all the kids used to hang their jackets. We transformed it into the kitchen area. The width of the hallway is perfect for the kitchen counter, cabinets and space to wall. The old class windows are used to be just openings into the wall between the living area and kitchen. I want to cook here. What about you?⁣ ⁣ The high ceiling makes the space more vertical and is amazing.

Being an architect means you get to use yellow painted heavy machinery. . Geoffrey Bawa, bless him, once remarked to a friend (while inviting him for lunch the following day), to be prepared for his appearance, since he would be cutting trees and tending to his garden at #Lunuganga. The following morning, his friend arrived, expected to find a sweaty #Bawa hacking away at errant branches. Instead, he found Geoffrey seated below a parasol, a G&T in hand, instructing a team through a megaphone. . In our office though, the team isn’t afraid of getting their hands dirty. These photos are from a project that is commencing and even Amit can’t resist going down to the foundation level for a closer look. A site without the base concrete seems full of possibilities and that is one of the great joys of being an #architect . #TooBadHeWasntThereLongEnoughToMakeItLookLikeAnAccident #WhatThisArchitectDoes #IndianArchitecture

One of the things I love most about my job is getting to work with some pretty talented and amazing people. Jane is my go-to for all things tile and slabs and makes my job easier so many times. Plus, her showroom at @marblesystems is boss. Sometimes a project just comes together like clockwork and we celebrate. Other times we have a hiccup and just solve it together. That's #goodbusiness. Thanks Jane for your amazing expertise and support! ❤❤❤ . . . #whatthisarchitectdoes #studio360LLC #team #marble #interiors #design #detailsmatter #womenentrepreneurs #womeninbusiness #gettingitdonewell #excellencebroughthome

For the many of you architects that had mourned misaligned things in the past, here is one of my projects where we saw that they were aligned. . #sitevisit #whatthisarchitectdoes

Going through past projects looking for details, I came across this renovation we did a few years back to a Charles M. Goodman originally designed house. We had the original and well detailed drawings which were well executed but at some point the windows were replaced with aluminum storefront frames. We reconfigured the fenestration through many studies as well as a complete renovation utilizing some of the last, new production St. Charles cabinets. It was a great learning experience for me through design and construction and I enjoyed the progress and transformation - #architecture. . . . . . . . #architect #design #moderndesign #midcenturymodern #modernist #modernarchitecture #renovation #construction #residential #dcarchitecture #modern #charlesgoodman #charlesmgoodman #loewenwindows #stcharlescabinets #whatthisarchitectdoes #windows #interiordesign #whatanarchitectdoes #marylandarchitect #rb5designdc

Why don't we only do details in 3D views? I love to place 3D views next to traditional 2D sections. An earlier post had my original sketch of this condition. . . #whatthisarchitectdoes #Vectorworks

Sometimes late in the CD process, we'll model crazy things like the roof edge fascia...I call it a sickness. Then it shows up in the sections and details. . . #Vectorworks #whatthisarchitectdoes
