This vacation home consists of two separate living areas that reside in a single home. This is an ideal vacation situation for extended family (grandparents, parents, and sons and daughters) as the home provides plenty of privacy for both families. The house is located on the coast of Santo Domingo, (Region V of Chile) in the upper part of the border coast which resembles a balcony over the beach with a great view at the pacific ocean.Save this picture!© Alejandra DemariaRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodEGGERLaminatesThe Santo Domingo coast is defined by its windy landscape, with predominant winds from the S-W. The “s” is the reason why the house works as panel, keeping the terrace and swimming pool area very tranquil; the living room works as a “bifocal” between the ocean view and the terrace, protecting the back of the house from excess wind.The overarching concept of the house is that of a strong concrete module with great detail. Pilars and beams are accented by stone, basalt, cipres wood and glass. This orden goes to the whole project bringing harmony to the house in its details.

Ross Street House / RWH Design

first_imgSave this picture!© Zane Williams+ 26 Share Projects Photographs:  Zane WilliamsText description provided by the architects. Carol Richard, founding partner of the Atlanta-based architecture firm Richard Wittschiebe Hand, returned home to Madison, Wisconsin last summer to build her house. “When I was a young architect,” says Carol, “I designed and built a house for myself in Atlanta and I’ve always wanted to build again and take advantage of the things I’ve learned over my career.” Carol’s most recent design is a collaboration with her mechanical engineer husband, Fred Berg. Their residence, known as the Ross Street House, was recognized as Wisconsin’s first LEED for Homes Platinum rated residence in July 2009. The home has captured the attention of green enthusiasts throughout the country for far exceeding the requirements to achieve the highest LEED rating of Platinum.Save this picture!© Zane WilliamsRecommended ProductsMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingDoorspanoramah!®ah!

Most of the homes are post world war Cape Cod in style with a few 1960’s modern homes. The designers felt that it was important to maintain the scale and utilize familiar materials from the neighborhood. Neighboring homes were modeled so that designers were comfortable with the scale and the way the house would fit into the eclectic neighborhood. As the couple’s retirement home, it was important to them to “be a good neighbor,” so an effort was made to meet their future neighbors and talk about the design of the house before construction.Save this picture!lower level planThe 2,700 square foot design is a simple form with cues taken from the southfacing lot. The southern facade was designed to capture as much of the winter southern sun as possible while shading the sun in the summertime. The concept of a box camera generated the form with the roof gently sloping from south to north. Sunlight that enters the home is controlled with fixed louvers attached outside the south facing windows. Computer modeling in ArchiCAD was utilized to study the amount of daylight that would enter the building during the winter and summer solstices. The louvers are designed to allow the sunlight to penetrate deep into the space between October and February while shading the windows between May and August. Save this picture!main level planPrimary exterior materials are 6” tongue and groove cedar siding with a metal roof. Cedar siding was selected for its similar scale and material to other houses along the street. A dark color for the siding and roof were chosen so that the house would appear smaller than it actually is. In contrast, the interior materials are very light in nature. Locally harvested maple and light colored walls make the inside of the house appear larger than it is. Save this picture!© Zane WilliamsThe main level is an open plan with service elements on the west side and living spaces on the east side. An open stair visually connects all three floors and is anchored by a three-story high wall. The upper level has a study opening onto the living room and a master bedroom suite. The lower level has additional bedrooms, a beer making room, storage, and a workroom. Save this picture!© Zane WilliamsWater conservation efforts include dual-flush toilets, low-flow faucets, a tankless water heater, and a rain water retention system for garden irrigation. Volatile organic compound (VOC)-free paints and adhesives were used to limit the unhealthy off-gassing commonly found in conventional American homes. The detached garage is topped with photovoltaic panels that generate enough electricity to offset more than half of the annual demand. Save this picture!west elevationThe house was designed to minimize air infiltration to less than 1 air change per hour through the incorporation of spray foam insulation and the careful sealing of all doors and windows. Forced ventilation is necessary to provide healthy air in the house. This is accomplished efficiently by using an energy recovery ventilation system and incorporates a 3-stage high efficiency furnace. Save this picture!© Zane WilliamsOutside the home, the front and back yards are transformed into garden spaces. An overall incorporation of native perennial plants and no turf grass make the yard low-maintenance. A rain garden and vegetable garden are located in the back yard next to the detached garage. A rainwater collection and retention system that stores 650-gallons of water is stored below the back porch. Pervious paving and limited impervious hardscaping for the driveway and walkways were used.Save this picture!section diagramProject gallerySee allShow lessShifting Sands / Work ACArticlesP.S.1 2010 entry: Cumulus by FreecellArticles Share 2009 CopyAbout this officeRWH DesignOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMadisonHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 26, 2010Cite: “Ross Street House / RWH Design” 26 Jan 2010.

This is the house for a couple aged 30-something. When I began to design the house, the client requested that the living room should be connected to a Japanese room, and that a Buddhist altar be appointed in the Japanese room. Save this picture!©  Takumi OtaThese two requests strongly reminded me of the “Japanese” space, which has become a starting point to make the entire concept of the architecture and to design this house. To make good use of benefit of the spacious site, we planned a one-storied building that surrounds a courtyard. For a Japanese-style space in which to appreciate the garden, the flat building reflects aesthetic values of the Japanese. Save this picture!©  Takumi OtaWe avoided the living room and Japanese room from being faced with the courtyard, which only allows indirect light to reach these rooms. The spaces therefore become dim, imparting “Japanese” taste. This also produces expectation for the sunlit courtyard. You can feel brightness of the courtyard only when you get to the dining room beyond the living room. Save this picture!©  Takumi OtaIn contrast, the dining room, bed rooms, and bath room are faced with the courtyard, taking in plenty of sunlight. The courtyard, which looks like abstraction of the Japanese garden, features the carefully positioned natural rock and the tower that rises vertically from the exterior wall. Save this picture!©  Takumi OtaThese two elements are intended to gather the line of sight of people in the room, and thus to keep their attention away from the mundane landscape expanding outside the architecture. For this house, the relation between the courtyard and each room has been carefully considered to determine the position.

Hyperion Project / Oyler Wu Collaborative

first_imgPhotographs:  Scott Mayoral, Dwayne OylerText description provided by the architects. Located on a vibrant commercial street in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, this building is a renovation of an existing 1930’s residential duplex. The project involves an ongoing series of interventions and transformations, beginning with the renovation of the building and growing to include a fence, with several (constantly evolving) additions in the works. The building includes the design office of Oyler Wu Collaborative, with a private residence located upstairs. The exterior of the building is an austere two-story volume clad in fiber-reinforced cement board with deep, recessed aluminum windows. The interior of the building combines exposed 1930’s wood frame construction with simple modern detailing.Follow the break for more photographs and drawings of this project.

This fence serves as a visual barrier between the busy traffic along Hyperion Avenue and the live/work building. Conceived of as a privacy fence, the structure explores the spatial and geometrical implications of a constant fluctuation between horizontal louver and vertical slat.Project gallerySee allShow lessArchDaily on Google ChromeArticlesPlus-Energy House with Electromobility / ILEKArticlesProject locationAddress:Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

Delta Shelter – a 1,000 square-foot cabin – is essentially a steel-clad box on stilts that can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. The 200 square-foot footprint of the house rises above a 40-acre, 100-year flood plain adjacent to the Methow River. The verticality, coloring and raw nature of the materials used for construction directly respond to the wildness of the setting. The owner sought a compact, easy to maintain, virtually indestructible building to house himself and his friends for fun and adventure in the mountains. With an exterior of steel, the house is virtually indestructible.Save this picture!2nd Floor Plan. © Olson Kundig+ 33The cabin is composed of three levels: the lowest level is half carport, half utility/storage room; the middle level consists of the entry, two small bedrooms and bathrooms; the top level is one large space which includes living, dining and cooking areas. Cantilevered steel decks extend from the top and middle levels and provide space for outdoor sleeping and entertaining.Save this picture!© Benjamin Benschneider / Olson KundigThe cabin is supported by four steel columns. Floors are 3” x 6” tongue-and-groove wood car-decking, and exterior wood infill walls are clad in 16-gauge, hot-rolled steel sheets with exposed steel fasteners. Most of the structure, including the steel structure, roof panels, shutters, and stairs, was prefabricated off-site, thereby reducing on-site waste and site disruption.Save this picture!Axonometric. © Olson KundigDue to prefabrication and the use of plywood for all interior surfaces, typical construction wastage was kept to a minimum. Aside from building as small a structure as possible and limiting the impact on the landscape, Delta Shelter’s most unique sustainable strategy was to be able to open the structure to the environment and to use human power as the means to do it.Save this picture!© Benjamin Benschneider / Olson KundigSave this picture!© Benjamin Benschneider / Olson KundigAll four shutters, which measure 10’ x 18’, can be opened and closed simultaneously by using a hand wheel that moves the shutters over the glazed portions of each façade.

The clients already had a built structure; the challenge for the studio was to make a large reform to bring comfort and privacy in a dense urban context. The division of the space we proposed is quite simple: garage, service area and home theater in the basement, kitchen, dining and living room on the ground floor, bedrooms on the first floor. Even though we changed part of the structure, most of the openings were maintained, which brought up the idea of covering the whole surface of the house to bring unity.Save this picture!© FG+SG – Fernando Guerra, Sergio GuerraThe client is a stylist and stimulated us with the task of coming up with different possibilities to “dress” the house, we chose perforated metal panels, with a pattern based in the photograph of a leaf. In this way the proximity of the neighbors became less oppressive and the spaces create an interesting relation with the variations of the sun. Projects On one hand the panels filter the light and the regards; on the other we created a patio to bring light to the basement and a slit above the stairs to illuminate the vertical garden. The master bedroom has a generous opening towards the backyard, where the landscape creates a small oasis within the city. A water basin intensifies the sensation of openness in the garden.

Fox House / PIQUE Architecture

This home sits on a bluff overlooking rolling sagebrush meadows in Oregon’s High Desert with views of the Cascade Mountains dominating the western horizon. The owners requested an extremely durable and energy efficient home for their family. The request for a net zero house necessitated extensive use of photovoltaic panels, ground source heat-pumps, careful consideration of day lighting and shading strategies, and a super-insulated structure.Save this picture!© Alan BrandtItalian architect and childhood friend of the clients, Maria Chiara Trevisan created the original vision for the structure as a gift to them.

GainfortCountry:United StatesMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Paul WarcholText description provided by the architects. This 2,000 square foot guest house is situated on a rock outcropping that overlooks a trout pond and open farmland. Designed as a contemplative retreat for weekend visitors, the house allows one to experience the expansive surrounding landscape with vast unobstructed views. The house integrates a number of sustainable design strategies including geothermal heating and cooling, radiant floors, natural ventilation, motorized solar shades, photovoltaic panels, and rainwater collection for irrigation. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholOpen views to nature create a stunning backdrop for the main living and sleeping areas. A main bedroom and two ‘couchette’ nooks with built-in bunk beds provide accommodations for six overnight guests.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe couchette nooks, bathroom, and storage rooms are housed within a slatted wood core in the middle of the house. The custom wood wall system surrounding the core allows natural light to penetrate through to the inner spaces of the home by day; at night, light emanates from the wood core and provides a warm, inviting glow in the living areas. The slatted system also allows the whole house to ‘breathe’; comfortable natural ventilation occurs throughout the house, even in the sleeping couchettes and storage closets. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe structural design for the house relies on 4 steel columns imbedded in the wood core; the roof cantilevers out from these 4 columns. This elegant structural solution uses the minimum amount of materials to achieve expansive, open living areas at both ends of the house. The façade of the house was designed as a thermally robust system of high-performance, triple-paned glass units that vary in width from 10’ to 20’. The entire assembly was prefabricated off-site, shipped to the site in one container, and erected by crane in 2 days.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholLandscape design strategies were closely tied to the design of the house. A tight palette of native vegetation highlights vistas and other natural features on the property while also managing storm water run-off. Local bluestone slabs and shale excavated from the site create outdoor seating areas and pathways; a bluestone slab terrace between the house and a nearby grove of pine trees provides an intimate outdoor room for entertaining and dining. Bluestone steps from the terrace lead to a barbeque area and an outdoor shower in the woods.

The apartment building lies on a sloping site that faces onto three streets and is comprised of 5 stories with apartments, a pilotis and 4 underground levels ― 1900m².Save this picture!Floor PlanThe major compositional issue was that of inhabiting the city through an investigation of the building type of the polykatoikia, i.e. the Greek apartment building. By avoiding morphological, conceptual, technological and other embellishments – instead focusing on abstraction and economy in respect to architectural ideas and their design and practical application on paper and on site – an attempt was made to redefine architecture as an individual as well as a collective social commodity, since it pertains to both the formation of private space as well as space collectively inhabited.Save this picture!© H. LouizidisThis was the reason an apartment building as type was sought an “element” within the broader unit which is the city; an apartment building-type, not as an “ideal model” for overall application, but as a contribution to a broader and common speculation.Save this picture!Floor Plan A typical commercial apartment building, even as the exclusive result of technical and financial considerations laid down by the residential market, sets by itself a typology, which requires some analysis and which may convey certain useful conclusions. This becomes possible since, even with all the mishmash of buildings, one can still discern the architectural standard of an abruptly-halted and flawed “architectural spring” of the 1930s and, mainly, the 1960s. The connection with this standard model was the starting point of the study.Save this picture!© H. Louizidis• Expressing the concept and purpose of architecture as being a “vessel for Life” and not as a fleeting lifestyle;• Formulating this concisely through the basic representational means, primarily the floor-plan and the section, but also as abstract ideogrammatic inscriptions, as ideograms;Save this picture!Section• Structural stability;• A simple, dense and clear-cut form, which can be subdivided in parts or repeated in multiples;•  Articulating the building in a constructivist manner, distinguishing between weight-bearing structure and filling agents;Save this picture!© H. Louizidis•  Organising space, the exterior and more particularly the interior, with economy constantly referencing a simple, anti-authoritarian, anthropocentric, collective way of life;• A multifunctional, unified, flowing, interior common area, in combination with the minimal, strictly private space, of the “roomSave this picture!Detail• Economy in the creation of form.These issues of “type” constituted the general regulatory framework within which this study was pursued.Save this picture!© H. LouizidisWithin this context, an attempt was made to preserve and strengthen the continuity of the city and to incorporate within it the new apartment building (aesthetically, structurally and functionally). An expression of this continuity is the free access, semi-public passage, which runs through the pilotis and connects the building to the movement network of the city. It is an open uphill pedestrian path. At the same time this “passage” can also be utilised as a collective meeting place, where residents can linger or pass through. Thus, the building adapts to the ground, taking in the incline within its section.Save this picture!© H. LouizidisThe same happens with the formation of the external facades through equipping them with environmentally beneficial special machine-operated awnings. The sturdy, chthonic construction of the load-bearing structure of reinforced concrete, combined with this light, modern technological system, created a fertile counterbalancing pairing, which thus enhanced both.Save this picture!© H. LouizidisAnother element of the central concept is also the composition of the construction structure of the building in terms of the logic of a Lego set.  It can be completed gradually over time, in independent “layers”, each distinct from the other, thus facilitating the stages of construction, as well as the process of repairing or changing them. Save this picture!© H. LouizidisThe weight-bearing structure is organised on a grid of concrete walls and columns while the floor plan is in zones. The large zone is constituted of walls and delineates the more stable (stairwell, bathrooms) and protected areas (living rooms). The smaller, with the columns and the in-fill materials, is the more flexible part, and delineates the smaller areas (rooms, kitchens, semi-outdoor areas) and/or extensions of the living rooms. Thus, the building’s compositional structure with its added zone functionality and the permeability of axis and movement of the load-bearing system, provides the possibility of alternative configurations of the floor-plan on each level, depending on the topography (slope of the site, view), planning code restrictions, the residents’ space requirements and so forth.Save this picture!© H. LouizidisFinally, as a result of the “Lego” rationale, the idea makes it possible for this basic type to adapt to various cost possibilities, construction systems, materials etc, all of which however, despite their differences, constitute products of the same ancestry.Save this picture!© H. LouizidisBrief analysis of sustainable aspectsDuring the design process, the erosion of the mass of the building, from the void in the midst of the pilotis and from the intervening covered open spaces and balconies, in combination with the small width of the building defined its bioclimatic behavior. Taking this into consideration, we sought to include through openings on the north-south axis that would naturally cool each apartment individually as well the individual spaces of the apartments, wherever possible. This cooling effect is further assisted by the microclimate created by existing perimeter planting in the verges/yards of the ground-floor stations, but also from the presence of water in the small swimming tank on the building terrace.Save this picture!© H. LouizidisSun shading for the building’s spaces is achieved by fitting metal frames to the balconies / glare shields, which support a system of textile shades, that can move vertically and extend horizontally, in combination with the application of a system of moveable louvre blinds on an aluminium door and window frame with a low emissivity glass.Project gallerySee allShow lessAD Round Up: Classics in BrickArchitecture NewsIn Residence: Xavier CorberoVideosProject locationAddress:Kolonaki, Athens 106 75, GreeceLocation to be used only as a reference.
