Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh - 1 Oct 2011
Located in Raleigh’s revitalizing Historic Depot District, an unlikely butterfly has emerged from its decades-long cocoon. The historic 1910 two-story brick structure built for Allen Forge & Welding Company and enlarged around 1927 for the Brogden Produce Company — and more recently home to longtime occupant Cal-Tone Paints — has emerged from its asbestos clad sheathing into a new incarnation as the home of Raleigh’s Contemporary Art Museum (CAM).

In early 1994, the architects began work on the project and while in construction (demolition, grading and foundations) the owner, due to circumstances beyond his control, halted all construction of the project. Seven years later the owner returned to the architects and asked them to complete the partially constructed house.

Make it Right home
This design 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. Offering shelter and comfort, the MIR home breaks the prescriptive mold of the traditional home by creating public and private "zones" in which private space is deemphasized, in favor of large public living areas.

Solar Umbrella : Sustainable energy-neutral building
Nestled in a neighborhood of single-story bungalows in Venice, California, the Solar Umbrella Residence boldly establishes a precedent for the next generation of California modernist architecture. Located on a 41' wide x 100'-0" long through-lot, the Solar Umbrella addition transforms the architects' existing 650 square-foot bungalow into a 1900-square-foot residence equipped for responsible living in the twenty-first century.

Brooks + Scarpa : Los Angeles Architects
At Brooks + Scarpa we believe that architecture should engage the user, heighten their sense of awareness, and bring a deeper understanding and vitality to their experience. We strive to create environments that stimulate their occupants and leave lasting impressions. We encourage a culture of ingenuity and exploration that enables us to maintain a fresh approach to every project we undertake. This is true regardless of the scale – big or small, whether for public or private use, for rich or for poor. This is an approach that has often led us to reinvent established building types.
Brooks + Scarpa approaches each project as the continuation of an ongoing inquiry. This belief has produced a constant stream of inventive work leaving each client with a building which is solely their own, non-formulaic, and yet facilitates even the most mundane requisites.
