Tree House

The owners wanted to upgrade an internally awkward and dark middle suburban Californian Bungalow into a light, modern 3 bedroom + study residence.There was a small group of huge trees in the backyard that the owners loved, so they became integral to the design of the new addition. The rear extension has substantial north facing windows that utilise these existing trees for shading from the summer sun. An angled eave overhang is provided for these windows where there are no trees to offer shading.   The extension was conceived as a single volume of efficient construction. It has a simple flat roof with interconnected spaces differentiated by changes in floor level that follow the sloping site. The rear decks also terrace downward towa... Altro

House-N

Questa casa presentava due sfide: la prima è il "budget" e la seconda è il "senso della distanza". Dal punto di vista del budget, la restrizione dell'area è stata applicata nella fase iniziale di progettazione. Per dare alla casa uno spazio un po' più ristretto, ha una struttura come uno studio a due piani con sette piani saltati a caso. Inoltre, non attaccando il soffitto, il design è stato fatto in modo che i passi potessero essere sentiti facilmente. Lo spazio costruito in questo modo è anche lo scenario di vari "campi" che mantengono un certo senso di distanza. Materiale Utilizzato:1. Parete esterna / rivestimento smussato in cedro rosso2. Finestra / Finestra in alluminio3. Pavimento・m... Altro

Sampson House

In un sobborgo compatto nel centro di Orange NSW, questa estensione di un Bungalow degli anni '20 offre nuovi spazi abitativi rivolti a nord e un rifugio padronale con un bagno in stile giapponese che si apre su un cortile paesaggistico in scala ridotta.   I proprietari stavano ridimensionando una proprietà appena fuori città. Volevano una casa accogliente con un rapporto diretto con un cortile a ridotta manutenzione. Una richiesta speciale era quella di un bagno in stile giapponese che avesse una grande influenza sulla materialità e sul design della casa e del giardino.   Dal punto di vista della progettazione concettuale, la casa è stata allestita con un'attenta considerazione per la luce e la pri...

Papamoa Beach House

Il sito è uno di una fila di siti con accesso alla spiaggia che costeggia la spiaggia di Papamoa. Si è prospettata un'opportunità; come collegare abilmente l'arrivo della strada posteriore alla parte anteriore del sito.   I primi principi hanno fatto sì che tutti gli spazi pubblici primari, soggiorno, pranzo e cucina, fossero posizionati nella parte anteriore del sito. Abbiamo poi usato la parte finale della casa per formare un portale che fornisce copertura e conduce il visitatore all'interno con una parete angolata e un intradosso.   Il viaggio tra la porta d'ingresso e il portone d'ingresso è arredato in modo attraente lungo il confine ed è rivestito in modo opposto da un morbido sc...

Fire Island 2

This project is in a beach community and emanates a casual, summer style. Rise capitalized on the central double height space as part of the expansion and complete reconfiguration of this home. The dramatic ceiling connects the new den on the second floor to the living areas below. The exterior elevations and window layouts were completely re- thought. The internal house circulation was re-oriented around the central gathering space to make it both more efficient and more attractive.  An additional entry to the house was added with a mud room. Finishes and fixtures were replaced and renewed.   Material Used :1. Windows - Anderson, 200 series2. Cladding - Red Cedar plank3. AC - Mitsubishi split systems4. Floors - solid oak 2-1/4&... Altro

Legal House

The Legal House (aka Keeshen House) is a 2,900 square foot home designed and built for a family with 2 young children, in the location of their existing house on a quiet street in a friendly hilltop neighborhood. Many homes here are being expanded so residents can remain in the city as they raise families in the highly valuable and densifying Westside of Los Angeles. Much of the design process was spent navigating through and adjusting to the currently changing zoning codes, which dictate the size and shape of expanding single-family residential construction. As the owners are both Attorneys and were fascinated by this part of the process, the project has been nicknamed “The Legal House”.   The Architecture is organized a... Altro

Gap Cove House

In this age of rising sea levels and palatial homes overrunning coastal towns while dominating their fragile ecosystems, this more thoughtful house stands out. The modestly-sized house was designed in close collaboration with the local Conservation Commission, exceeds recently updated FEMA regulations, and was designed to produce as much electricity as it uses over the course of a year. Its overtly modern design is more about responding to its rugged site and to its inhabitants’ needs and dreams rather than a statement about style.     Who: an architect and his therapist wife, 2 adult daughters, 1 son-in-law, and multiple foster and adopted grandchildren   What: one large open living space facing the ocean and...

Water Street Coffee Drive-Thru

Water Street Coffee Drive-Thru is located just north of I-94 in Kalamazoo, MI. This drive-thru only building is designed to enhance the relationship between architecture and automobile by conveying moments of the cafe experience to patrons that never leave their cars. The building's predominately rectangular form is modified by an emergent curved wall which is extended past the south facade to increase the building’s presence from the south and shield the various services near the staff entryway. The curved wall mimics the movement of cars on the site and introduce an element of surprise by shifting the perception of the building's size, form, and proportions as one drives around.  A large corner window, situated in a field of...

Tōrō House

Il progetto è una completa ricostruzione e ampliamento di una casa unifamiliare in collina già esistente. Situata su una collina che segna l'interfaccia tra un boschetto di sequoie ad est e un boschetto di latifoglie e un prato circostante, la casa originale di metà secolo è stata disposta a "L", intorno a una terrazza centrale che si affaccia su un monumentale albero di sequoie solitario. Con una battuta d'arresto di 15 metri su tutti i lati della proprietà, l'impronta della casa esistente si è estesa in molti degli ostacoli che presentavano la sfida di lasciare l'unica nuova area edificabile come una stretta forma triangolare divisa in due da un ripido pendio non edificabile.   La soluzione...

Quarry Drive House

Quarry Drive House was commissioned by clients seeking a mid-century modern aesthetic to house their collection of mid-century modern furniture. The home is tucked into a hill surrounded by a collection of arbutus trees and projects out from sloping grade toward ocean views at the front. As one approaches from the driveway at the rear, the house reveals itself. Once inside, a great room with a raised ceiling opens out toward views of Vancouver Island to the south with decks surrounding the entire front of the house. Large overhangs and floor to ceiling glass provide cover from the rain and maximize on natural light.   Material Used: 1. Cladding: Western Red Cedar Vertical Siding 2. Soffits: Western Red Cedar 3. Fascia: Western Red... Altro

Black House

An ever growing young family led to an evolving design in this project in Sydney’s east. An alteration and addition to an existing detached victorian house, our insertion at the rear aimed to bring much needed northern light into the new rear living spaces. This was achieved through a series of voids and clerestory windows, which add vertical dimension and a dialogue between private and public space. Again, this house builds upon the narritive of contrast in old and new – in materials, form and space.   Material Used :1. Custom Orb – Metal Roofing – Colorbond Lysaught2. Klip-Lok – Metal Roofing – Colorbond Lysaught3. Western Red Cedar Shingles, Porter’s Palm Beach Black – Facade Claddin... Altro

Outpost

Outpost is a phased, hybrid structure merging recreation, retail and work environments to foster and reinforce a sense of community in a developing section of Hood River. As part of the city’s new Waterfront Masterplan, Outpost will eventually become a 60,000-square-foot development—a neighborhood of buildings that will functionally connect the city with the Columbia River waterfront. The site, formerly home to an industrial wastewater treatment and processing facility, largely underutilized the waterfront but will now become a new paradigm for future development in the region.   Phase One is composed of two buildings, that together, result in a 30,000-square-foot complex that reimagines traditional mixes of spaces and ho...

Eton Accessory Building

The Eton Accessory building sits amongst a gnarly row of alley structures of varying vintages; old stucco garages, laneway homes and garden sheds. It stands out and invites curiosity from the neighbourhood – what is it used for? What is it made of?   This 100% wood structure is a testament that no project is too small for prefabrication, its design born out of a strong desire to work with cross laminated timber – to better understand its properties as well as the efficiencies of its assembly on a project of a very small scale. Designed as a kit of parts, the structure is entirely made of 3 ply CLT with large cedar framed openings at both ends. Skylights and windows are strategically cut in to allow daylight into the woody... Altro

Freshwater Semi

This alterations and additions to a semi-detached house aim to maximise natural light and aspect into a narrow, 3.6m wide, south facing semi. The front rooms and roof line of the existing building is retained and a new 2 storey extension is constructed at the rear. Living areas are located on the ground level and a kick back stair provides access to 2 new bedrooms and a new bathroom/ensuite accessed via a timber bridge overlooking the void to the kitchen below. Circulation has been minimised so that living and bedrooms spaces can take full advantage of the available 3.6m width.   The roof line has been simply extended up to Council’s allowable building envelope to allow for a 14.5 meter long north facing set of louvre windows s...

Waranara Early Learning Centre

Located in the ever-evolving Green Square precinct, the Waranara Early Learning Centre provides much needed day care for young residents in the local community. The project involves the adaptive reuse of a heritage-listed outpatients building into a 74 place Early learning space. A complex brief as well as a sensitive client has resulted in a challenging project. Careful attention has been placed on the overall useability of the Centre resulting in a cohesive and robust design bridging old and new. The integrity of the existing building has been retained - breathing new life into the structure – and a contemporary wing housing the entry, playspace and wraparound verandah has been grafted onto the original shell.   This permeabl...
