Workbook: Getting Site Specific

For a longtime client's fitness and wellness center, architect Grant Kirkpatrick creatively incorporated the structure beneath an existing tennis court. Image courtesy Kirkpatrick Architects. “He missed the process,” Grant Kirkpatrick, of Kirkpatrick Architects, says of his longtime client, who had just purchased a new property down the street from a home Kirkpatrick had already designed for him. For the client, the place was “a new opportunity to have some fun,” says the architect. The house itself needed quite a bit of work, as did the grounds. A stand-alone gym was also on the agenda, considering the emphasis the client places on wellness and physical fitness. Where to site it proved to be the big question. Several ideas were tossed around before the team finally settled on one suggested by Kirkpatrick’s partner, Erik Evens—place the wellness center underneath the existing tennis court. It proved to be catnip to the client.

Looking Back: Talking Office Design with Clive Wilkinson

One of Clive Wilkinson's inventive, progressive work environments at Macquarie Group Limited, One Shelley Street, Sydney, Australia. Courtesy of Clive Wilkinson Architects.Given that we spend big chunks of our waking hours at work or working, it stands to reason that the way our work environments look and function should be a high priority. At FORM, we’ve been exploring our working life and the changing shape and look of the modern workplace. Today, we’re sharing an interview with Culver City—based architect Clive Wilkinson, first published in our September/October 2011 issue. Here, Wilkinson— just elevated to an AIA fellow last week—discusses his own designs for office space and the broader philosophical realities inherent in the projects.

Check back here throughout the year, as we explore the topic in more detail.
