With a rich history, steeped in a town of historical significance all its own, the revitalization of the Bulova Watchcase Factory in Sag Harbor creates a new condominium complex that reflects the diverse styles of the surrounding village. The New York Times takes a look inside the new development restored by Beyer Blinder Belle with interiors by Steven Gambrel.

An article in the Harvard Gazette offers a sneak peak inside the newly designed swing space for Harvard’s House Renewal and an article in the Harvard Crimson interviewed student residents of Dunster House soon after they were introduced to their swing year housing. As part of the program, BBB designed spaces to create a home away from home for students during their swing year.

Amidst much press and anticipation of the completion of the rehabilitation of the Watchcase Factory into housing, Beyer Blinder Belle’s architectural historian Kate Lemos McHale reflects on the historic Village of Sag Harbor and her personal connections to the project.

Across the Potomac River from Washington, DC, Rosslyn’s Central Place – a new mixed-use development designed by BBB for the JBG Companies – broke ground in April. Located immediately adjacent to the Rosslyn Metro station, the pair of high-rise buildings – one residential, one an office building – is envisioned as a catalyst for revitalizing downtown Rosslyn, an area that currently suffers from limited urban character and public amenities.

Throughout much of history, there was no distinction between architects, engineers, and builders. Instead, an individual—the master builder—conceived of the form and materials of a building at the outset and followed it through until construction came to an end, taking responsibility for all of the challenges that arose during the project. This kind of continuity throughout the life of a project is intuitively beneficial: engineering and construction requirements shape the approach long before ground is broken and design decisions need to be made until the final touches are in place. Many of the world’s great monuments, from the Parthenon to Brunelleschi’s Dome at the Florence Cathedral, were built in this way.

The TWA Terminal at JFK International Airport has been honored with a prestigious American Architecture Award, bestowed by the Chicago Athenaeum in recognition of excellence in architecture and urbanism in the United States.

Detroit has become a symbol of post-industrial distress. Ruin voyeurs photograph scenes of overwhelming decay and the uncanny incursion of nature into spaces once dedicated to the manmade. But just as they overlook the underlying sadness of dereliction, so they ignore the vibrancy of an active city with a population working to translate loss into opportunity.
