Comprehensive Portfolio

  1. 1. DIAMOND BUILDING Colby College Waterville, Maine (with Bohlin Cywinski Jackson) Facing the neo-Georgian campus, the building presents a simple character along the street façade and two gabled elevations. However, turning the corner, the building explodes into a series of angled and overlapping slate, limestone, curtain wall and cedar planes that frame views and define circulation and gathering spaces. The project is the first of two buildings planned, which when completed, will define the new Colby Green and an edge of the campus’ curved drive. Each bar contains faculty offices, a core of student study rooms and support spaces, which define a pair of corridors that open at one end to the exterior and at the other to the building’s atrium. Clustered around this public space are the auditorium and lecture halls on the first floor and laboratories and conference rooms on the floors above. photos by Nic Lehoux Andrew Kraetzer, RA akraetzer65@gmail.com

  6. 6. WALLACE SOCIAL SCIENCES BUILDING Princeton University Princeton, New Jersey (with Bohlin Cywinski Jackson) Located within the university’s newer campus ,the 4 story facility defines a major pedestrian route and its intersection with a minor path. The facility provides faculty and staff with offices, conference rooms and support space and students with classrooms, meeting rooms, lounges and a library. The building is composed of brick panels, curtain wall and painted aluminum trelli of various sizes and shapes. A glass enclosed second story balcony overlooks the entry foyer, which connects to a subterranean lobby via a steel staircase. Opening onto classrooms, an outdoor patio, and the center’s library, this lower lobby has become a popular gathering space for students. photo: Nic Lehoux photo: Michael Thomas, Nic Lehoux, Matt Wargo Andrew Kraetzer, RA akraetzer65@gmail.com photo: Michael Thomas photo: Michael Thomas

  9. 9. Student Housing St Mary’s College, Maryland (with Bohlin Cywinski Jackson) Entered through the community building’s arched opening,a brick walkway links the complex’s two courtyards. The two story buildings which define the open space contain 4 bedroom apartments, which include kitchens and 3 bedroom dormitory suites. The building’s simple detailing is inspired by the areas vernacular “tidewater” architecture. A future commons building and additional dormitories will complete the master plan for this complex. photos: Michael Dirsin Andrew Kraetzer, RA akraetzer65@gmail.com

  11. 11. ALGIN SUTTON CHILD CARE Los Angeles, CA (with Carde Ten Architects) Designed for the Los Angeles Parks and Recreation department, this 6,000 s.f. center provides thecommunity with a safe place for small children to play and learn. An administrative wing containing the entry foyer, offices, conference room, kitchen and support space and a classroom wing define outdoor play space. A colorful canopy divides this space into a quiet, grassy garden and an active playground. With a limited budget , color, texture and materials became essential to enlivening the simple building forms. Clerestory windows bring natural light into the center’s two classrooms and main entry lobby. Collaboration with a local artist produced the whimsical wrought iron fence.

  13. 13. SOMERSET HALL St. Mary’s College, Maryland (with Bohlin Cywinski Jackson) Existing facilities, including a pool and basketball arena were renovated to create much needed practice facilities, while a new natatorium and basketball arena allowed for many more spectators. An interior street defined by a suspended wood ceiling system, custom wood benches, concession counter and reception desk links the project’s major components. A series of fitness and weight rooms share a glass wall with the “street” allowing expanded views from both sides. Executed on a tight budget, structural and mechanical systems were exposed and stained concrete installed in the corridors and public spaces. Simple brick piers and white trelli announce the building’s public entrances. Photos: Michael Dirsin Andrew Kraetzer, RA akraetzer65@gmail.com

  16. 16. DENTAL SCHOOL BUILDING University of Maryland, .Baltimore (with Bohlin Cywinski Jackson) Located on the edge of Baltimore’s downtown, this 12 story, million square foot facility competes with neighboring buildings for daylight. To solve this challenge, the labs, corridors and conference rooms are organized around and borrow natural daylight from two multistory atria that are lighted from skylights, reflectors and large expanses of curtainwall. The south atrium features a multistory and multifaceted conference “pod”, which is sheathed in acoustical panels and hovers above the lobby floor below. A ramped corridor featuring custom steel channel light fixtures, floating plywood ceiling panels and terrazzo flooring connects this lobby to a nearby garden. Other materials include limestone panels, brick, glass fins and acoustical panels. photos: Nic Lehoux, Matt Wargo Andrew Kraetzer, RA akraetzer@gmail.com photo: Nic Lehoux

  20. 20. KAUFMANN RESTORATION Palm Springs, CA (with Marmol and Radziner) This restoration of Richard Neutra’s iconic modernist home, returned the interior and exterior to its original state. Additions and finishes were stripped away leaving only the structure’s framing. Finishes, including stucco, metal fascias, paints, casework and glazing were recreated using Neutra’s details and documents as a guide. Modern appliances, plumbing, electrical, HVAC and water management systems were seamlessly integrated into the design. Andrew Kraetzer, RA akraetzer65@gmail.com
  21. 21. Loewy Residence Addition Palm Springs, CA (with Marmol and Radziner Archi- tects) Originally designed as a bachelor retreat for Raymond Loewy in 1946 by Albert Frey, this house is now used year round by its current owners. They requested a more gracious connection to the existing angled master bedroom addition as well as a deck and pavillion for entertaining, that was both adjacent to the master bedroom and accessible from the pool. Jutting out over an existing field of boulders, the new pavillion offers a contrasting experience to the sheltered courtyard of the original design as well as unique views to the mountains to the west.

  23. 23. BROOKS RESIDENCE Holicong, PA (with Paul Macht Architects) Solar orientation was integral to the design of this home. The main living spaces, offices and bedrooms trace the sun’s path to maximize solar gain in the winter months, while a balcony and extended roof overhang protect these rooms from the sun’s summer heat. The client’s interest in alternative building systems is also reflected in this project. Insulated concrete form ( ICF) walls,structural insulated panels (SIPS)combine to create a tight super insulated envelop. To avoid column supports and a thermal bridge,the steel framed balcony is connected to the main house structure using thermally broken steel brackets. Timber trusses, tongue and groove ceiling, and trimless openings define the character of the main living spaces. Soapstone floors cover hydronic heating throughout the house. A geothermal system, fresh air intake, energy recovery, and a rainwater conservation system are all integrated into the project. Estimated completion date is April 2009.

  25. 25. Pool House Worcester, PA (with Paul Macht Architects) This pool house-garage pavillion forms an “L” with the existing home around the pool, providing the clients with outdoor space for entertaining. The simple exterior roof form is exposed on the interior, where it is clad with a whitewashed tongue and groove ceiling. The private “wet” area, which houses the shower, toilet and sink is enclosed by a stone clad wall and has direct access to the exterior. Andrew Kraetzer, RA akraetzer65@gmail.com

  27. 27. Golden Residence Lower Salford, PA (with Paul Macht Architects) Designed for a family of four, this addition/renovation consists of a new master suite linked to rest of the second floor with a balcony, an expanded family room and a new deck. On the house’s south elevation, the glass paneled wall allows for views of the woods and captures winter solar gain. Outside, the entire house, including the existing structure, was clad in a skin of rigid insulation and a combination of fiber cement siding and panels, which gives the residence a new identity from the street. The painting scheme for the home’s exterior is based on the tans and greens of the family’s favorite tree, “Sid the Sycamore.” The deck and balcony railing system is comprised of stock cable rail components and custom vertical supports designed by the architect and produced by a local metal manufacturing company.
