    “One of [Sarco Architects’] goals for this project is for it to be a shining example of sustainable architecture in Panama. To achieve this goal they include many green elements into their work.”

    Costa Rica and Panama architecture firm, Sarco Architects, recently finished their first design proposal for Rancho Santa Fe Panama. The construction area for this project is 87,600 square feet, and consists of two 5 story condominium apartment buildings, underground parking facilities, common use areas, and recreation spots. All of this will be enhanced by a lush mountain landscape that will afford the Residents peace and quiet. http://sarcoarchitects.com/sarco-architects-panama-completes-design-for-rancho-santa-fe-panama-mountain-gated-community/ Click here to read the full details on Sarco’s website

    Rancho Sante Fe Panama is 75 minutes west of the hustle and bustle of Panama City, and 15 minutes away from the Coronado Town Intersection where there are grocery stores, medical services, restaurants, and other valuable commercial services. The Coronado beach town and golf course is not far from those establishments. This gives the residents the perfect blend of serenity and everyday conveniences.

    The location of this mountain gated community offers many benefits. Since it is at the elevation of 1,800 feet, the change in altitude provides clean, fresh air and is at least six degrees cooler than the coastline. All of that makes for an enjoyable mild climate. Another treat is the 180 degree mountain view of the rolling hills and pristine ocean below.

    This is what Roderick Anderson, principal of Panama luxury architectural firm Sarco Architects Panama, had to say about this endeavour:

    “This was a great project to work on, since the property has such magnificent views and characteristics, that it really allowed us to make the most of its surroundings and design the buildings to respond and take advantage of those panoramic views all around. We feel that our fresh, earthy, contemporary style for this project will also appeal to a client looking for options leading away from the traditional style so predominant in Panama.“

    Sarco Architects is a custom luxury architecture firm with offices in Costa Rica and Panama. They have been in business for over 30 years in Costa Rica and they offer green architecture services to all of their clients. They respect the environment, making sure to minimize their carbon footprint when designing a project.

    Their current design proposal for Rancho Santa Fe Panama is no exception to their green philosophy. One of their goals for this project is for it to be a shining example of sustainable architecture in Panama. To achieve this goal they included many green elements into their work. The exterior ceilings and wood beams will be made from renewable plantation wood, the common areas will be powered by photovoltaic cells on areas of the roof that are purposely sloped to create room for them, and the irrigation system will use rainwater.

    The design also calls for the use of solar powered exterior lights, locally sourced stone for the cladding of walls, and the use of environmentally friendly composite wood siding on exterior surfaces. The list does not end there, as they plan on incorporating even more sustainable concepts and elements once they are further along into the project.

    A lot of time, thought, and dedication went into the creation of this project. The mountain location provides unbeatable scenery and the peace only nature can provide, while not being far from the rest of the world. This project mixes elegance and sustainability perfectly.

  • Oregon Architect, Erich Karp, Establishes Cella Architecture to Provide Architectural Services with an Emphasis on Fine Homes and Bespoke Commercial Spaces

    Portland architect Erich Karp decides the timing is good to start a new venture, Cella Architecture. The new firm will serve Oregon’s residential markets with an emphasis on custom homes, remodels and additions.

     

    Cella Architecture takes advantage of the features and opportunities of a site.

    Fine custom home, Ashland, Oregon

    “To build to the greatest benefit, you want to take advantage of the features and opportunities of your site. If you don’t do that, you can potentially spend more money, be less satisfied with the result, and waste opportunities to interact with your site.”

    After more than a decade working for various top architectural firms, Oregon architect Erich Morgan Karp, AIA has launched his own firm, Cella Architecture.

    The new Portland based firm is focused on custom new home design, additions, and remodels as well as unique commercial spaces. Practicing architecture since 1997, Erich brings extensive experience and knowledge to each project. He has designed and worked on numerous fine custom homes throughout Oregon, including Portland, Lake Oswego, Cannon Beach, Gearhart, Sisters, Bend, and Ashland. Additionally, he has worked with home owners to create high quality, detail oriented remodels of their existing homes – suited to their lifestyles and budgets, while staying true to the style of their homes and reflecting his clients’ unique requirements.

    Cella Architecture is founded on the idea that design is a collaborative effort between client, architect, and contractor. Embracing that approach from the early stages of a project results in designs which truly reflect the clients’ needs and desires, and are completed on budget and on schedule. Every person on the team (architect, client, contractor) has a different set of skills and different abilities; no single person has all the answers. By working together, you can take full advantage of their individual knowledge, applying the strengths of each party for a better designed and better built home or remodel.

    Erich feels a strong connection to the region and believes that architecture is a significant way to enhance the beauty of and our connection to the Pacific Northwest landscape. The formation of Cella Architecture will better enable Erich to source high quality local materials, and design in harmony with the site – including the built and natural surroundings – to create the most natural and well-integrated home possible.

    “To build to the greatest benefit, you want to take advantage of the features and opportunities of your site. If you don’t do that, you can potentially spend more money, be less satisfied with the result, and waste opportunities to interact with your site and the possibilities it may offer,” says Erich. “Each and every site is different.”

    Cella Architecture and Portland architect, Erich Morgan Karp, AIA, look forward to many years fulfilling the architectural needs of residential clients throughout Oregon.

    About Erich Karp

    Erich is a licensed Oregon Architect. He holds a MArch degree from the University of Oregon and a BA in physics from Reed College. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects and is NCARB certified.

  • Brian Lewis of ACLA:WORKS Shares New Directions for Contemporary Caribbean Architects at FCAA Conference in Barbados

    In an audio-visual presentation, Lewis urged Caribbean architects to look more closely at strategic planning and positioning their firms in order to compete effectively in an aggressive market. Since architecture represents enormous financial and human resources, Lewis recommended that Caribbean Architects look more closely at how they present architecture to the public, and suggested the need for good quality architectural photography as an effective means to achieve that objective.

    ” I am already seeing definite signs of a new trend in design which suggests to me that we are at the beginning of a new wave of architecture in the Caribbean, broadly described as a contemporary design movement.

    The presentation by Brian Lewis of ACLA:WORKS, a firm specializing in contemporary architecture and interiors based in Trinidad and Tobago, was part of a panel of speakers on the topic of ‘Caribbean Identity and Evolving Aesthetics’. In his 40-year long experience Brian Lewis observed that, with few exceptions, the general public have little understanding of the architectural profession and what architects do. In many of the Caribbean islands there is a strong tradition and history of colonial architecture that provides an established visual reference point.

    However, built examples of contemporary architecture are few and far between so the general public is not yet comfortable to know what is well-designed contemporary architecture or poorly designed modern buildings. “I outlined some initiatives that I think are critical to achieving ‘Joy of Architecture’ and some thoughts on how we can go about developing a Caribbean identity and Evolving Contemporary Architecture.” said Lewis.

    Presenting contemporary Caribbean architecture is a delicate art that needs to not only seduce its audience but also to portray architecture in a form that appropriately reflects the enormous level of financial and human resources needed to produce better buildings.

     

    Lewis described the nature and scope of a comprehensive marketing plan necessary in today’s competitive marketplace and went on to demonstrate how architectural photography is essential to the strategy and how good quality photography can go a long way in terms of showcasing contemporary architecture.

    Today the public can now view architecture in many forms of media; including social media, internet marketing and even more traditional media such as newspapers, brochures, architectural and trade publications and even published books. “It’s not enough to produce good design, although this is important for us architects. It is necessary to present architecture in an appealing way so as to explain good design and its benefits. The public needs to understand what we do and why we do it – well photographed architecture forms the basis for this dialogue”. commented Lewis.

    During the course of his research and cataloging buildings within the region Lewis has this to say about emerging trends observed “I am seeing definite signs of a new trend in design which suggests to me that we are at the beginning of a new wave of architecture in the Caribbean, broadly described as a contemporary design movement”

    He then went on to explain that he had decided that a well-designed book showing 40-50 fine examples of contemporary architecture would go a long way towards providing the public with a single reference point to see what has been done here in the Caribbean. Lewis then presented a mock-up of a new book he is working on called “Contemporary Caribbean Architecture” that will showcase up to 50 selected projects in the Caribbean and is due to be published in 2015. But the future of contemporary architecture also requires changes by architects themselves, particularly in the processes they use.

    Contemporary architecture has become far more complex in the last 20 years and architects also need to keep up to date with rapid developments so as to continue to be relevant and serve their clients with state of the art design. Two critical tools that can help architects produce better buildings are  3D CAD modeling or BIM and  sustainable design.

    Describing some of the benefits of using an integrated approach with 3D modeling he summarized the following example “on a small 5,000 square foot building our firm designed using BIM we detected some 1,800 conflicts in the design coordination with other consultants. A significant reduction in design coordination conflicts can yield substantial time and cost saving during construction.”

    He went on to demonstrate how sustainable design can be integrated into the design process permitting the architect the ability to simulate various design options so as to yield significant savings in energy costs and reductions in carbon footprint.

    In summary the lecture outlined how architects can position their firms to meet a competitive regional challenge by presenting contemporary architecture using professional architectural photography. Lewis encouraged architects to include their work in a book on Contemporary Caribbean Architecture and invited architects with projects in the Leeward Islands to submit examples of suitable projects before the end of November 2012.

    The presentation by Brian Lewis of ACLA:WORKS based in Trinidad and Tobago was part of a panel of speakers on the topic of ‘Caribbean Identity and Evolving Aesthetics’ together with other speakers Trevor Bullen of COCOA in Grenada, Marc Jalet of the Agency of Architecture in Guadeloupe and Urbanism and Ronny Lobo of Atelier Lobo & Raymann in Curacao.

    Known for its functional and energy efficient modern design, DCA brings a fresh and interactive approach to the design process. DCA is a full-service architectural and planning firm that creates residential, retail, and commercial buildings.

    “I started DCA based on the simple idea that buildings can serve as a link between culture, nature, and the people who inhabit them.

    The Great Design System is a summary of the five phases used in designing a custom new home or residential remodel. This guide includes details on what information an architect needs from a client, what clients can expect in services and plans from an architect, and an outline of fees and typical costs for each of the five phases. This guide is a general and gentle introduction to the very exciting world of working with an architect to make your dreams and visions for a new home a reality.

    Born in Ventura and a Buena High School graduate, Mr. Chappell holds a Bachelor of Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He also studied modern architectural design in Denmark at The University of Copenhagen. He is a licensed California Architect.
