Lake House

The house on the lake refers to the local boat and fishing houses and follows the tradition of rural construction by the water. Lightness, a low, wide roof structure and a strong emphasis on the horizontal determine the design. The timber construction, predominantly from local woods, is elevated to protect it from flood. The wooden porch surrounding the house widens to a terrace at the lakeside, completely covered by the steep saddleback roof. The vertical timber formwork of the facades is untreated, with wide glazing allowing generous views into the surroundings.

A large floating roof tops The House of Wisdom by Foster + Partners

The cantilevering roof sits on top of a glass box fitted with aluminium screens in differing densities. Both the cantilever and the screens work as shading in the warm Emirat climate. Movable bamboo screens provide shading and privacy at the lower levels. The House of Wisdom by Foster + Partners is a library and cultural center, located ten kilometers outside Sharjah city center. © Chris Goldstraw  “The straight, minimalist lines of the building complement the dunes of the desert, set within a lush landscape. The House of Wisdom is set to be an oasis for the local community, led by research and innovation, at the heart of a new cultural district.” Gerard Evenden, Head of Studio at Foster + Partners &c...

Ghost Wash House

The Ghost Wash House is located along the lower hillside on the north side of Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley, Arizona. The site is flanked by two desert washes that move storm water from the top of this urban mountain into the valley below. Two long, thin tumbled brick bars run parallel to the east and west natural washes framing a third topographic condition or “Ghost Wash" that runs down the center of the site. The east bar protects this architectural wash from the low desert sun that streams across the mountain in the morning. This bar houses the public ‘support’ programs of the house: garages, kitchen, office, and family dining room. The west bar shields the occupants from the intense hot low west sun as it sets in the v... En savoir plus

Plus matt - Design: ribbed

The characteristic stainless steel with a robust and hard-wearing natureRoofinox Plus matte is a ribbed surface through a positiv / negativ embossment. Seen from close up, the decorative ribbed embossing becomes very clear, but it is precisely this relief-like structure that is responsible for the very smooth effect of the roof when viewed from afar. The embossing ensures a highly rigid material.The result is greatly reduced visibility of waves or dents. And although storms and gales don’t stand a chance against a Roofinox surface, Roofinox Plus matte is even more resistant to visible hail dents. A further positive feature of Roofinox Plus is that even thinner sheets can be used. This results in a price ad... En savoir plus
