"The Novella" our Multi-Family in New Haven Receives Top Honors from the American Institute of Architects in the Commercial Design Category!

Jury comments are as follows...

This is smart housing, a good housing block. It is solid, doesn't try too hard, and reflects intelligent urban planning and good urban intentions. The jury appreciated the palette of color and materials. A lot was done with a modest budget. This is a great background building in its context.

Beinfield Architecture Receives Top Honors in Residential Design Category From American Institute of Architects for 2 Nearwater Road in Rowayton!

“The jury loved this project that is driven by structure. There is beautiful procession, craft, and consistency of design ethos, inside and out: the plans, the sequence of spaces, are beautiful. This is a whimsical but clever design, with a great site plan, and a good balance of industrial and vernacular forms, resulting in a powerful re-creation of an industrial typology.”

We Won!

2017 Alice Washburn Award Winner | Connecticut Chapter of The American Institute of Architects | Accessory Building

Reminiscent of a vernacular barn structure in an abandoned state, this new "reclaimed" structure houses a state of the art theater, sculpture gallery and observatory. Perched austerely on a hillside with sweeping views into the gardens and meadows, one side opens entirely with an industrial air-craft hangar door allowing further union with the countryside. The exterior is clad in glass and Corten steel in a natural rusted state. Atop sits a rotating aperture-slit dome of galvanized metal used for observing terrestrial or celestial events. Visitors are greeted by a monumental oak door that floats within its glass fa├žade. Continuing the mystery and creating a little bit of tension, a mottled black folded plate steel stair, resembling the bellows of an accordion, cantilevers off the wall. Once ascended, visitors encounter a catwalk crafted in steel and resin panels set within a circular spoked frame evocative of a reel of film which hovers above the gallery below. Combining the romance of the abandoned farm structure with a sense of folly from an earlier century, the building creates drama within its shell and frames the natural drama without. 

As an additional bonus, (not included within the award) this project is connected to the wine cellar in the main house by an 800 sf, 140 foot long concrete tunnel, inspired by a wormhole. The wormhole is home to an iridescent slug that radiates light in a broad spectrum of wavelengths from her glowing translucent skin.
