a l m project dives into summer
…and casts an eye back on the first half of the year:
With the annex to this landmarked residence substantially complete in March, the property now gets finishing touches to the pool and garden. Maintaining thoughtful proportions and capitalizing on sight lines, they round out the property’s concept of indoor-outdoor living. Meanwhile, tucked away under a green roof in the lower garden, a guesthouse and writer’s retreat are in the planning phase. Ongoing.
Chobani on the Road
The café’s tradeshow outpost, first launched at Expo West Anaheim in March, traveled to the National Restaurant Association show in Chicago and to Aspen’s Food & Wine Classic. Winning raves along the way, it will see six other venues throughout the year. Ongoing.
On the heels of celebrating 10 years of success, Sprinkles and a l m project gear up to bring cupcakes, cookies and ice cream under one roof—developing a common graphic identity and a shared environment to position Sprinkles as the premier all-American dessert brand. The Houston store gets a fresh start as it reopens to serve all three desserts. Ongoing.
A remodel and addition to this 1958 ranch house transforms the property into a country retreat. Existing structures are repurposed while a new studio and an elevated parcours connected to the pool, are added. With a master plan creating a meaningful relationship between the site, its established citrus grove and other mature trees, and its distant mountain views, the one acre estate becomes a refuge deeply connected to the beauty of its surroundings. Ongoing.
Karen John, founder of Heartwork, invited a l m project to collaborate on their Building Block collection and direct the look and feel of this new series. Characterized by a sophisticated use of color, the units feature flush round pulls, adjustable shelves, and cord holes for cable management, and work well independently or together—a fully modular system that adapts to workspaces and supports planning solutions. Spring 2015.
In the Works
a l m project joins Chef Corey Lee for another exciting collaboration, in San Francisco; launches a new concept for the Chelsea Market, in New York City; ventures into pizza, in Los Angeles; and designs a Schindler exhibition to open at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, in September. Stay tuned!
