将现代设计注入整个城市。。。

architecture350是以洛杉矶为基地的一家建筑及开发公司,深植于历史及现代主义的持续创新架构里。我们拥有对当代可持续性设计和它在美国加州设计的创新历史中特定的执行深感热爱。 建筑是,对我们来说,一个严格的综合过程,重视与客户,顾问,手工艺者和承包商间不断的,直接及投入的咨询。我们寻求透过相互尊重和对细节的执着,能建立一个具贡献的坚强团队。我们的过程是一个整体,而不是线性的,允许广泛的影响和咨询,以期能找出每个项目的独特表达。我们相信,最好的设计不是永恒的,而是对它表达的时间和地点有深远的意义。我们拥抱的设计,是坚定地植根于产生特定的社会,文化和地理条件里,同时我们寻求一种建筑语言,来传达意义和价值给更广泛的文化。

我们对各种类型的设计项目经验丰富,如住宅,多单元住宅,商业室内设计,教育机构,餐厅的设计和数位媒体设施,architecture350提供了设计思想和实际执行无与伦比的组合。我们对可持续设计战略的丰富知识加上高阶主管在每个项目的高水平参与,我们是一个以客户为中心的公司,致力于创新的解决方案和并肩合作。在architecture350,我们拒绝接受传统的限制,并不断探索更好,更有效率的方法,在现实世界中时间和预算的限制下,来构造现代生活和工作环境。

Kevin Southerland received his BA in architecture from U.C. Berkeley and, after a year at London’s Architectural Association, went on to receive his Master’s degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). He spent two years working at Frank O. Gehry and Associates and subsequently worked for several other prominent Los Angeles firms including Neil M. Denari Architects, Gensler, as a senior designer at Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects and as principal of his own firm since 2005. He has accumulated over 20 years of diverse experience on projects ranging from the Disney Concert Hall to post production facilities for 20th Century Fox, restaurants for the Hillstone Group (Houston’s) and offices for Revolution Studios as well as extensive residential and multifamily housing experience.

As one of the first 100 LEED Accredited professionals in California and a life-long surfer, Kevin is a committed environmentalist with a passionate belief in the concept of “do no unnecessary harm”. He is a native Angelino who is continually amazed by the diverse cultural fabric of the city. His commitment to innovative sustainable architecture is matched only by his enthusiasm for crafting serenely beautiful spaces.

Why architecture350?

350 is the most significant number in the goal of a sustainable future. 350 refers to the parts per million of carbon dioxide that a global consensus of scientists has deemed sustainable for human life to carry on as we know it. At the dawn of the industrial revolution, the atmosphere contained 275 ppm of CO2. In 2008, that number had risen to 392 ppm.

Buildings are one of the largest consumers of energy and raw materials. In 2009, buildings produced 37% of the total atmospheric CO2 in North America. This equals 10% of all global CO2 emissions and is more than the total emissions of any country except China. CO2 production in the U.S. rose 30% between 1990 and 2003. This increase was predominantly due to more and larger homes and more household appliances.

High performance building design offers a significant tool in the global fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Through passive heating and cooling strategies, better thermal performance (insulation practices, building envelope design, etc.), daylighting and high efficiency artificial lighting and lighting controls, alternative energy sources (solar, wind, geothermal), and more efficient mechanical systems (water heaters, heaters, air conditioners) and better appliances, energy use could be reduced by up to 70% in a typical building.

By 2030, approximately 50% of all buildings in North America will have been built after 2000. Thus, in the next 20 years, we will be responsible for building or rebuilding a significant volume of our built environment. How we choose to build these buildings will be our lasting legacy, for better or for worse.

Aesthetics (form) should not dominate program (function); program should not dominate aesthetics

Balance is stronger than symmetry; composition is stronger than rules

Good design is sustainable, durable, convertible, maintainable

Integrated decoration, not applied ornamentation

Eschew literalism

Great architecture is in love with its site

Find harmony of structure, materials, program, and form

Blur the boundaries of interior and exterior

Good design is of its place, its time, its context
