2008-09 will mark the 80th anniversary of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, an outstanding achievement from a leading figure of Modern Architecture. It was the embodiment of Le Corbusier’s philosophies.

Years of research done through previous works, painting and architecture, that helped in bringing his ideas to maturity. The  Architect transformed a simple week-end country house into a thoughtful project that brought in innovative concepts, volumetric ideas, and spatial organization still present in Architecture as we know it today.

Brooks + Scarpa Dwell House II Print E-mail
Monday, 22 October 2007 01:54
Dwell House II  seeks to redefine the concept of a home into a flexible, multifunctional and adaptable space addressing the needs of today’s modern family, on a limited budget.
Dwell02.jpg Finding shelter and comfort through its access to the very environment that surrounds it, Dwell House II breaks the prescriptive mold of the traditional home by creating public and private “zones” in which private space is de-emphasized, in favor of  large public living areas, with commanding views of the surrounding environment.  Because the heating and cooling systems in both “zones” can be divided according to their public/private function, more efficient systems can be used, leading to a house which, upon completion, will set a new standard for innovation in design and sustainability.

We are proud to feature two remarkable projects by the talented Architect, Randy Brown, based in Omaha, Nebraska.

While different in their appearance both projects seem to share common philosophies. They are the result of a methodical process where ideas matured through the different design stages, Each element of the project was being constantly re-evaluated, even through its construction stage. Well integrated in their site they give the users through large window frames the best experience of the natural surroundings. Both projects were designed with Sustainability in mind; materials have been carefully chosen to minimize energy consumption.
