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.

Awards Report: California Firm Receives Coveted P/A Prize

While Modulo Prep Library’s footprint may be small and its construction budget tiny, its mission is anything but. Instead, the library, located in Tijuana and designed by CRO Studio partners Adriana Cuéllar and Marcel Sanchez (along with a design team of Gabriela Bendeck, Arturo González and Joseph Ruiz Tapia), represents a major re-thinking of the idea and function of a library and its role in a public space. So compelling was the project and the ideas behind it recently received the 60th annual Progressive Architecture Award.
