There were two construction sites: the main house and a stable. The main house was in a very bad condition, overgrown with vegetation, and numerous repairs had to be made to make it livable. The stone and timber structure of the stable was significantly deteriorated and most of the walls had to be replaced. The position and materiality of the architecture was maintained although given the farm’s crumbling state, the new facade of the the main house was reconstructed with white concrete and local stone.

Leawood Speculative Office / El Dorado

A developer wanted to design a speculative office building in Johnson County to attract high-tech companies. Standing in stark contrast to the beige, small-windowed, mansard-roofed professional buildings that are the norm in this part of suburban Kansas City, the 18,000 square-foot, two-story office building has a simple, rectangular floor plan within a concrete structure that features an all glass enclosure with a carefully positioned exterior perforated metal scrim system that helps regulate heat gain throughout the year. To the south, panels run parallel to the windows, removed at strategic locations (hallways, doorways) to open views across the entire interior floor plan.

Architects, professors, clients, and critics do not typically agree on much, but if there is one aspect of design discourse they can reach consensus on, it is this: great architectural models and sketches can often be as awe-inspiring as the buildings that evolve from them.

From the tiniest maquettes to the most epic dioramas, models in particular can serve to communicate the essence of a project more succinctly than almost any other medium, and no firm understands this better than Oregon-based studio Allied Works Architecture.

While renovating a single-storey Victorian terrace, Fearns Studio filled the thin strip of land behind with a blackened wood cuboid on top of brick ground floor that's painted white. Under the pitched roof of the old house, a lounge faces the street and a bedroom behind is connected to a bathroom via a small courtyard. These rooms are joined by a long corridor that leads from the front door to the large open-plan dining, kitchen and living area. Ground-floor rooms are lit by skylights, as well as patio doors along the thin alleyway down one side of the house that leads to a courtyard. "Skylight penetrations bring light into the centre of the plan, helping to define spaces within it," said architect Matt Fearns.
