MÉMORABLE

Captivating, Mémorable is a solution for those seeking differentiating spaces. Mémorable takes us on a journey through the experiences and memories of amazing places, strongly inspired in the elements and the natural feel of stone. This collection is a fusion between history and modernity, between traditional and contemporary, between time and matter. Its structures, which simulate the extraction and wear of natural stone, add body and personality. The surface finishes - Natural, Touch and Anti-slip - and the uneven edges are in themselves an attractive contrast, bringing the collection closer to a more rustic chic look. Mémorable is also available in 20 millimetres, with anti-slip finish, prepared to adapt to the ext... More

Shimigiah Residential Apartment (Double Side)

“Double Side”-Shimigiah Residential Apartment was a building with no residents for years. At first, the new owner had decided to make some minor alterations in terms of improving the building’s elevations; but under the discussion between our team and the client, we could convince him to renovate all the interior and outdoor spaces.  The northern and southern access to the apartment was completely different. Considering the variety of effective factors on the elevations and also the inconsistency of two facades, each side is determined to have a unique but consistent design Regardless of all differences, some specific elements, materials and a unique color were shared on both sides, in order to provide single charac...

Uliveto Woodside Garden

Located on a vegetative gradient in Northern California, this three-acre property is in the Silicon Valley community of Woodside.  The property owners commissioned Surfacedesign to merge the residential structures—designed by architecture firm Olson Kundig—and the surrounding landscape into a single, flowing, integrated entity.  The philosophical design approach prioritized blurring the sight lines of the parcel’s varying elevations and “borrowing” vistas of the adjacent Santa Cruz mountains.  This vision was realized by innovatively creating four distinct planting areas: olive orchard, house entrance (succulents), water-wise perennial meadow, and California native meadow transition edge.  ...

Atelier Luxury Apartments Landscape

Real estate developer Carmel Partners awarded Surfacedesign creative control of the outside living spaces at its luxury apartment project Atelier, designed by architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz.  Taking inspiration from the building’s proximity to the former Los Angeles Garment District, Surfacedesign’s overall approach was influenced by the Bauhaus textile patterns of Anni Albers.  Geometrical lines and shapes are repeated throughout the 33-story project’s two outdoor living spaces: pool/amenity deck and rooftop lounge.  Surfacedesign injected the textile inspiration into the composition, stitching together the hardscape with a rich landscape of native and Mediterranean plantings.   Atelier&rsq...

Hybrid Design

This project houses a growing graphic/product design office within an existing brick building located in the Jackson square historic district. The design requires the removal of all the existing interior structure while leaving the existing perimeter brick structure and original front facade intact. The new design is comprised of inserting a steel ribbon frame at the front of the facade to create a large jacketed bay window, and adding a second story structure that connects to an open roof deck area above. A series of steel moment frames are used for the primary structure throughout the building to seismically brace the existing brick walls and to collect the additional loads of the new second story. The roof plane and roof deck have bee... More
