Completed in October 2004, the Hill House was designed under challenging conditions generated by modern problems of building on a hillside. Located in Pacific Palisades, California, while the site for the house offers panoramic views from Rustic and Sullivan Canyons to Santa Monica Bay, the irregularly shaped lot is situated on an uneven, downhill slope. With the canonical Eames House nearby, the 3300 square foot Hill House provocatively continues the Case Study House tradition of experimentation and reinvention of Los Angeles lifestyles.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaDoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82DoorsEGGERWood Laminate Doors in Molecular Plant Science InstituteWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsHILLSIDE ZONINGIncreasingly in Los Angeles, local hillside ordinances, building codes, coastal regulations, and design review boards have imposed restrictions on hillside construction, with the goal of preserving the profile of the natural hillside terrain by limiting building heights, location and massing. The Hill House sets a new precedent for hillside building by liberating itself from these restraints – not through evasion – but by strategically transforming these stringent criteria into a sculptural and efficient design solution, that seamlessly engages with the surrounding site.Save this picture!The massing of the Hill House subsequently results from two economically driven development criteria: To maximize the volume allowed by the zoning requirements; and to minimize contact with the natural terrain. Recalling Hugh Ferriss’s vision of a Manhattan skyline literally interpreting the zoning laws as building form, the Hill House adopts the maximum zoning envelope as its form. The initial envelope is shaped from a combination of property setbacks in plan and hillside height restrictions in section, and is further refined three-dimensionally according to structural criteria.Save this picture!PLANNINGWithin the building enclosure, individual programmatic components are assembled to fit into the fixed envelope, much like a contortionist, artfully compressing the mass of their body into unique configurations. By eroding all non-structural walls and partitions, the program flows effortlessly between three levels stacked within the exterior skin. An upper semi-private loft space and a more secluded lower bedroom suite sandwich the central public living and dining area. An open, sculptural, steel and glass stair vertically stitches the three levels together. The smooth polished interior skin is shaped and curved selectively to accentuate the geometry of the house and to accommodate storage and mechanical services.Save this picture!APERTURESThe aperture strategy results from a desire to both minimize the quantity for privacy and efficiency in terms of environmental performance, and to maximize size for views, ventilation and light. With the relationship of the site and building to the street, the conventional rear of the house in essence becomes its front with spectacular views of the canyon and ocean to the north, east, and south. Large sliding glass doors in the living area retract into concealed pockets, erasing boundaries between interior and exterior. Where windows and doors are recessed into the building volume, the exterior material membrane folds into the house to form deep sills and thresholds respectively. The recessed windows of the private rooms frame specific views to the exterior while limiting views into the house. The placement of skylights in both the flat and sloped roofs further blurs the conventional differentiation between roof and wall. Indirect light sources and unanticipated views from these openings further enhance the three-dimensional quality of the space and form.Save this picture!MATERIALSTo express the continuity of the building skin and minimize the conventional distinctions between roof and wall planes, an elastomeric, cementitious exterior coating material was used requiring no control joints. The embedded lavender color of the coating was sampled from the pigment of eucalyptus bark, prevalent at the site, re-enforcing the house’s connection to the site from which its form is derived. The material’s iridescent quality results in dramatic color variations with changing light conditions throughout the day. Similar to the monolithic exterior coating, the interior materials are detailed to suggest spatial continuity. Materials in varying shades of white, including polished Carrara marble, smooth Corian countertops, lacquered wood, and enameled steel seamlessly meet throughout occasionally accented by darkly stained walnut flooring and cabinets. A meadow of various native California grasses forms a blanket covering the slope surrounding the house. Highly detailed succulent plants such as aloe and agaves accent the soft grasses and reflect the crisp lines of the house.Save this picture!STRUCTUREThe structural assembly is composed of concrete, steel, and timber. The foundation, based upon nine 35-foot deep reinforced concrete piles, is anchored into bedrock and tied together by a network of grade beams. Rising up from this foundation, inclined concrete walls project orthogonally to the grade – instead of vertically – taking on the figure of prevented fall. A braced steel frame with timber infill framing emerges out of the concrete base to form the circulation core and cantilevered overhang at the entry.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessWorld Trade Center Iguala / b720 Fermín Vázquez ArquitectosArticlesFolded Bamboo + Paper House / Ming TangArticles Share Hill House / Johnston Marklee 2004 CopyHouses•Los Angeles, United States Year:  CopyAbout this officeJohnston MarkleeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInfrastructureLos AngelesSustainabilityHousesOn InstagramUnited StatesPublished on October 29, 2008Cite: “Hill House / Johnston Marklee” 29 Oct 2008.

House in Macieira I / Arqu’s

first_img Text description provided by the architects. Located in a countryside area typically composed by small farms, orchards, punctuated by the forest in the background and narrow roads surrounded by handmade stone walls, this house was created to fulfill the needs of a young couple and their small children. Therefore, the entire program was arranged so that the house could be easily lived in and out, making the best of the natural surroundings, without it being too invasive. So the spaces organize themselves on a single floor making the best of solar exposure and creating paths around and in between the house.

Save this picture!Courtesy of arqu’sThe house shows itself through one of its three volumes first – the living room appears in front and makes the bridge between the kitchen in the back and the bedrooms volume laying aside. The living room then rotates and adjusts to the plot creating a fluid continuity on the inside, as well as it defines a simple volumetric language on the outside. On the plan, it’s a square, sectioned into the needed spaces, with a small rotation on one of them. Then a secondary path is created in the middle were an inner garden takes form becoming an important aspect on the organization of spaces. Save this picture!Courtesy of arqu’sWhen one enters through the main door, all the paths become clear and the links between spaces make the best for a familiar living in harmony. The living room is served by different types of light during the day due to its orientation – in the morning, the sun appears shy through the inner garden’s window leaving only the path illuminated and the rest in a “standby” shadow; at the middle of the day the light is reflected to the inside by both the schist stone wall and the green lawn; and by the sunset, the fuzzy orange light glows on the big white wall coming through a thin window in the southwest corner. The bedroom “box” is turned south into a vine on top of a stone wall with a eucalyptus forest in the background.

Salongen 35 / KKA

first_img Housing Sweden Text description provided by the architects. In April 2009 Kjellgren Kaminsky in combination with builders Höllviksnäs FörvaltningsAB, won an open competition for passive houses. The competition was organized by the city of Malmö for the last vacant site in the Bo01 housing exhibition area, in the western harbor. The competition design was developed further and has now been built.Save this picture!Courtesy of KKAGreen Living In addition to being passive houses the buildings will also have a number of further measures for ecological sustainability: 1. All homes will be equipped with solar panels. 2. All homes have exterior venetian blinds. This will allow winter sun to enter the building while the summer sun is reduced. 3. Flower boxes, lawns, green walls and green roofs make the area into a green oasis. 4. Environmentally friendly building materials will be widely used; for instance all wood is FSC certified. 5. All appliances are ‘A’ rated for minimum energy consumption. 6. All taps are designed for minimal water consumption. 7. Inhabitants are offered green electricity. Save this picture!Courtesy of KKAPlace for All Along the west side of the plot a micro park with plants and benches creates a varied street space for meetings between residents and visitors. Exterior In order to give each house its own character we have given them different cladding materials; plaster, fiber cement boards and wood. Aluzink is used for the roof. Architecturally the houses are ‘linked’ by the use of similar detailing, which also helps to give the buildings their human scale and unique expression. There will be flower boxes of white perforated metal in selected windows, for instance in bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens. Each house will have unique coloured windows and doors. Save this picture!Courtesy of KKAInterior A material palette where rustic, earthy materials are contrasted with minimalism. Recycled materials keep prices lower and are environmentally friendly, aswell as providing a beautiful patina to the houses from the start. Entrance, laundry and kitchen floors are made of recycled terracotta. In the living room and in the dining room the floors are made from a rustic and resistant whitewashed pine and the internal stair is a brushed pine. In order to get more light into the apartments and provide surprising views of the surroundings, some window reveals have a mirror-face.Save this picture!model 01Project gallerySee allShow lessMuseum of Modern Art in Warsaw (MMAW) / Camilo RebeloArticlesThe Siege of Sarajevo Museum – The Art of Living 1992-1996 Fama Collection / Studio …ArticlesProject locationAddress:Västra Hamnen, Malmö, SwedenLocation to be used only as a reference.

The initial assignment for the Villa SK was to rebuild with a rather limited budget an existing single family house and adjust it to the needs of its futures inhabitants. Instead of redeveloping the old structure, the decision was to add a contrasting annex that would extend the living area of the house into the garden. This choice allowed keeping intact the main structure of the existing construction and reserving it for the private functions, such as bathrooms and rooms for the children. On the other hand, the most public function of the house – the living room – is now surrounded by nature and becomes the central element of the house. The first floor of the existing house is now a more reserved area for the owners and the roof of the annex serves as an exterior terrace.Save this picture!© Lukas SchallerRecommended ProductsWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedWindowsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Casement Windows – Rabel 8400 Slim Super Thermal PlusWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeThe extension volume consists of three materials—large glass panes, rough brick and red coloured concrete. The concrete structure that forms the roof is composed by two major beams, which extent almost to the limit of the plot. Although supported by thin metal elements, the roof structure appears to hover over the rough stone wall, creating a clear but delicate contrast between these elements and materials. In this gesture, the building embraces the existing walnut tree, forming a calm and reserved courtyard. The wide glass panes provide an intimate connection from the interior space with the outside scene, from spring’s lush greenery to winter’s bright snow. In this way, nature and architecture are interwoven to create a welcoming and harmonious backdrop for family life.Save this picture!© Lukas SchallerProject gallerySee allShow less[UN] RESTRICTED ACCESS Winners Announced!ArticlesAqua at Dover Street Market / Zaha Hadid ArchitectsArticles Share Villa SK / Atelier Thomas Pucher “COPY”center_img Houses Area:  240 m² Photographs CopyHouses•Graz, Austria Architects: Atelier Thomas Pucher Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/259571/villa-sk-atelier-thomas-pucher Clipboard “COPY” Save this picture!© Lukas Schaller+ 14 Sharelast_img read more

Smart-Stell Residence / Tonic Design + Tonic Construction

first_img Area:  2400 ft²Text description provided by the architects. The clients wanted a new house but not a new neighborhood. On one of their daily walks they found a 40-year-old structure for sale. The house, beyond repair, occupied a promising lot with a southeast exposure to a small lake. This gave the couple the idea to build their “home and vacation home at the same time, they said. Save this picture!Courtesy of Tonic DesignRecommended ProductsWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedCompositesULMA Architectural SolutionsPolymer Concrete Facade in Sinafer HeadquartersThe design of the new house addresses two key site relationships: (1) the existing neighborhood and its contextual scale, and (2) the landscape of the lake. From the street, the new one-story house’s form is low, quiet, and horizontal, with the only real opening towards the street at the main entrance porch. Because this house would be a dramatic departure from the typical houses in the neighborhood, we sitedit deeplyinto the property. Save this picture!Courtesy of Tonic DesignThe 2400-square-foot house opens up to its surroundings at the back, where extensive glazing provides constant views of the lake and surrounding natural environment. This approach maximizes the interior connection to the outdoors without sacrificing the clients’ privacy.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tonic DesignProgrammatically, the house features: an entrance foyer; an open living/dining/kitchen space suitable for entertaining, especially with access to the deck from this space; a master bedroom suite with two separate bathrooms and walk-in closets; two generous office spaces; a guest room and additional bath; and a two-car garage. Square concrete “steps” lead from the driveway to the front porch. A wooden deck spans the lakefront elevation.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tonic DesignAs both the architect and contractor, Tonic’s challenge was to maximize the view of the lake from the open “public” space (living/dining/kitchen area), while providing the clients with an energy-efficient and comfortable living space. The solution came in the form of a hockey stick-shaped roof structure fabricated of wood beams and steel plate. This composite structure, designed with the help of the North Carolina Solar Center, supports an IPE pipe trellis. The form and composition ensure that the sun’s harsh rays are blocked in the warm summer months, while the lower winter sun is allowed to penetrate and warm the interior. A band of clerestory windows above the main living space, facing the street, allow more natural light to penetrate the interior and creates a glow above the horizontal structure at night.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tonic DesignTo achieve a construction budget of $180 per square foot as requested by the clients, the building methods used in the house are standard, off-the-shelf materials that have been reinterpreted and used in inventive ways, such as the “pin stripe” siding that creates horizontal detailing for the street-facing façade.

The site of Can Serra forms a reserve of open space endowed with an agricultural value, around which are organized the various urban tissues that make up the town of Parets del Vallès. The residence building occupies part of the southern boundary of this area, acting as a mediator between the built city and the open, protected environment, which descends in a gentle slope towards the north.Save this picture!© Shlomi AlmagorThe residence extends the urban level on a horizontal platform on which the program is materialized, mainly in one, single floor. The platform rectifies the gap with the topography by a series of gabion walls, as in an agricultural terracing. Only the administrative building stands out in two stories, as a territorial milestone.Save this picture!© Shlomi AlmagorThe building extends as a grid, introducing light dislocations in each of its nodes to emphasize the condition of these as meeting places. The north south axis contains the private rooms and the east-west axis accommodates the public halls and services. The in-between of the mesh is formed by a set of courtyards which are either surrounded by the edifice or open up towards the neighboring meadow.Save this picture!© Shlomi AlmagorThis broken mesh allows the building to reflect the image of a small town, in which the halls and nodes occupy the role of public squares and the corridors are compared to streets. Each of the private rooms -slightly different from its neighbors through the use of color-, opens to this particular street, as would the door of a house to the city.Save this picture!© Shlomi AlmagorThe roofs of the building are of great importance. From the hills of Can Serra, the structure is perceived as a set of regular pieces distributed in two levels, -the lower level of the rooms and the higher elevation for the common halls- that blend with the materials and colors of the meadows and cultivated fields. The courtyards act as a third level of green surfaces and allow the compound to be grasped as a mosaic in continuity with the agricultural sector.Save this picture!© Shlomi AlmagorThe perimeter of the building bordering the town is formed by white brick walls, topped by lattice. These walls contrast with the glass enclosures of the common halls, which combine the adjacent patios. The rooms are organized as series in blocs; their walls plastered in different tones of stone-like color in a manner that there is always a dominant color in each courtyard. By contrast, the administrative tower is dressed with a perforated aluminum, light membrane which emerges over the rest of the building.Save this picture!© Shlomi AlmagorClimatically, the residence is planned as a system of interwoven solid volumes and courtyards that create special conditions where vegetation acts as a first hygrothermal regulator. The rooms make use and improve these micro-climate conditions with the help of a carefully controlled natural ventilation device and by the seasonal control of direct radiation.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessIs NYC “Landmarking Away” Its Future?ArticlesSant Joan de Reus University Hospital / Pich-Aguilera Architects + Corea & Moran Arq…Selected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Avinguda Pedra del Diable, 9, 08150 Parets del Vallès, Barcelona, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

The aim of the Plane House is to merge internal and external space, maximising the benefits of both and minimising the impact on the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© Yiorgos KordakisTo avoid block volumes that split and dominate space, horizontal planes are inserted into the slope, immediately providing levels for sunbathing, sleeping and eating, as well as vast, open area of shade. They cool and shade the space beneath whilst allowing the flow of sunlight and maintaining the stunning 270 degree view over the coastline. Space between the planes is defined by various flexible panels and glazed screens. Designated cooking, eating and relaxation zones are offset from each other to provide cosiness without sacrificing openness.Save this picture!© Yiorgos KordakisThe pool is strategically placed to enjoy the view but also to create a cooling breeze over the terrace and into the house as the north wind flows uphill and over its surface. Photovoltaic panels power the pool mechanics and grey-water is recycled and used for irrigation, toilet flushing and fire extinguishing. The landscape is respected and continues over the green roof plane, creeps up along the site boundaries and penetrates vertically through the roof as existing trees stand in the space, undisturbed.Save this picture!© Yiorgos KordakisThe powerful identity of the concrete planes creates a strong narrative on approaching the house from the coastal road that winds below. From a distance the planes are distinctively separated but as you draw nearer and approach the house from the side, the perspective alters closing the gap between them. On arrival and on entering the space they part once more, opening to reveal the breathtaking view and let the fresh air flow through.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Gherkin: How London’s Famous Tower Leveraged Risk and Became an IconArticlesA Walking City for the 21st CenturyArchitecture News Share Houses Greece Projects CopyHouses•Skiathos Island, Greece Plane House / K-StudioSave this projectSavePlane House / K-Studiolast_img read more

That’s why we have chosen to offer a double typology: a low and unitary side along the street facing a factory, a divided profile on the other side, near the existing single-family units.Save this picture!Courtesy of Zoomfactor ArchitectesThe three houses are covered by an undivided roof emphasizing the double language: a big section on the street and three distinct gable walls at the houses back. This geometrical conversion comes with the roof and walls design: fibre-cement slates against wooden cladding.Project gallerySee allShow lessBerlin Wall Memorials Prove Controversial, Fall Behind ScheduleArchitecture NewsHASSELL Wins Competition to Construct Landmark Tower in SydneyArchitecture News Share 2009 3 Social Houses / Zoomfactor Architectes + JB Poulain Area:  270 m² Area:  270 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

This project is a small real estate development located in Mui Ne, a seaside holiday destination in Vietnam’s south east coast.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIRecommended ProductsMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensThe site has a trapezoidal shape 110 meters deep between the ocean and the road and 42 meters along the beach. The sea front view is amazing and unusual for a private residential project in this area, usually occupied exclusively by resorts and hotels. The idea was to maximize this potential with semi-detached sea front villas and keep a large part of the land as a “buffer” landscaped area to prevent noise from the road.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIThe construction is composed of 3 units: Two 3 bedrooms villas, and one 4 bedrooms villa, each with a private 10mX3m swimming pool. The construction was raised to 1.8 meter from the beach level in order to keep a good privacy from the public beach, maximize the sea view and prevent from site erosion.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIThe interior layout offers a generous sea view for each space:-       On the ground floor the kitchen, dining and living room are merged in one single space mono-oriented to the beach front while the back has been designed with a patio open to the sky to bring sunlight, natural ventilation and a nice sequence for entrance and staircase with the pond and the interior tropical garden. Master bedrooms are open to the infinity swimming pool and by extension to the sea. In the back, each bathroom has a private garden with Jacuzzi, bringing light, ventilation and strong outdoor/indoor connection.Save this picture!First Floor Plan-       On the first floor, all bedrooms have a large ocean view with floor to ceiling windows recessed in the concrete structure providing enough shadows. On the front, the flat roof becomes a huge timber decking terrace, extending possibilities to contemplate the ocean. In the back, are located the bathrooms, naturally ventilated through timber louvers.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIElevations are simple, following the layout strategy. The beach front elevation is widely open with large aluminum frame windows while the back elevation has no windows but timber louvers only. Therefore, in addition to the open air patio on the ground floor, it has been possible to limit the air conditioning to the bedrooms only.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIThis amazing location, so closed to the sea, is a dreaming place for living. This project tries to not miss this opportunity to offer to the guests a total and unique “seaside” experience. In line with our practice, the materials are basic and the design is minimalist, focusing on the quality of each space with no sophistication.Project gallerySee allShow lessPepiguari House / Brasil ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsFour Ways to Learn About Architecture for FreeArticles Share CopyHouses•Phan Thiết, Area:  1014 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/515917/oceanique-villas-mm-architects Clipboardlast_img read more
