The task was to create reasonably-priced residential space with high standards of living comfort for four differently sized parties. In the processs, each party was to profit as much as possible on the one hand from the 3,000 m2 south-facing environs, and on the other from the north-facing view of the city.

All four apartments are accessible via a two-storey entrance hall, each of them having their own internal staircase of one or two floors. In principle the double-storey apartments and the two roof apartments are encapsulated in each other so that the quality of the four-sided building is fully exploited. Common place and unrefined materials such as concrete, timber, wood and glvanised steel were chosen, which animated each other when combined. Save this picture!The precise insertion of coloured kitchens with reflective glass surfacing and the extensive coloured glass panelling of the bathroom walls contrast with the the coarse concrete and the organic patterns of the wood. Save this picture!The basement, the vertical stairwells and the partitioning walls between the apartment units are made of concrete cast in situ (basic shuttering). This guarentees that the fire proofing and acoustic demands set by the timber elements, which constitute most of the rest of the spatial structure, are met. Save this picture!The concrete core constitutes the “skeleton” of the actual wooden structure, the organic softness of which heightens the rawness of the concrete. The ceilings and the walls are made of prefabricated, isolated wooden elements of spruce. Save this picture!The interior surfaces consist of boxing plywood on the walls and bonded boarding on the ceilings. The construction and the dileneation of the rooms are congruous. The individual building elements and the building processes are legible. Due to their slightly polygonal geometry, the wooden elements have the characteristics of a piece of carpenter’s furniture. The most striking characteristic of the galvanised sheet-metal façade is the differentiation of the form of the window openings on the north and south sides.Project gallerySee allShow lessHoliday House on the Rigi / AFGHSelected ProjectsBeijing Airport / Foster + PartnersSelected Projects Share “COPY” Projects House for architects and artists / AFGH House for architects and artists / AFGHSave this projectSaveHouse for architects and artists / AFGH Architects: AFGH Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeAFGHOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasZurichHousing3D ModelingSwitzerlandPublished on May 27, 2008Cite: “House for architects and artists / AFGH” 27 May 2008.

V-House / GAAGA

first_img “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/140026/v-house-gaaga Clipboard Houses The Netherlands Year:  2010 Photographs:  Marcel van der Burg Text description provided by the architects. V- HOUSE is a white stucco abstract looking house of which the V-shaped roof is its most striking feature. The roof is constructed of wood and is modeled after a common saddle roof, the only difference being that the top is turned downwards, resulting in a dip at the centre of the house.The roof is an important constituent of the architecture. From the outside, the V-shaped roof gives the house its distinguishing appearance and from the inside, it vitalizes and intensifies the interior space. Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgRecommended ProductsWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0The house covers a practically square area and consists of two floors. On the outside there is no clear distinction between the floors; the façade is composed as an unambiguous whole with a cluster of windows in the middle. From the inside though, each floor has a typical program and spatial lay-out. Save this picture!SectionsThe top floor accommodates the living, dining and kitchen area. This area is one open space, with a varying height of 2.8 meters at the centre to 4.1 meters at the edges. At the front corner of the floor a large void is situated. This vacant space not only links the upper floor to the ground floor, it also creates an L-shaped floor plan. The freestanding bearing wall at the inner corner of the “L“, together with the dip in the roof, divides the space in two: the kitchen and void on the left side and the living and dining area on the right. In this way the kitchen area is subtle separated from the sitting area. Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe interior and outward vistas, resulting from a well thought-out positioning of openings (windows, roof lights, void, and openings between the bearing wall and façade), evoke a sense of openness and spaciousness. In addition to this the use of natural materials like stone and wood contributes to an informal and friendly atmosphere. Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe ground floor accommodates different functions which are zoned in adjacent strips parallel to the partition walls. The strip in the middle accommodates the stairway, the corridor, and also the entrance hall, where a view is presented to the garden, the street, the void and the roof. Through the corridor the two other strips are opened up: at the right side a strip designated for private rooms like bedrooms and bathroom and on the left side a more than three meter wide strip accommodating a large polyvalent space. Because of the void overlapping this space, there is a strong visual relation with the kitchen and sitting area on the top floor. Save this picture!PlansFurthermore, the large window situated at the top of the front façade and the casement doors at the back façade provide a view of the sky and the closed garden respectively. These interior and outward vistas in combination with the natural light coming in from above (roof lights, top window) make the space intriguing, poetic and serene.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgProject gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: NYU 2031: NYU in NYCArticlesSt. Hans “Haugen” Performance Center / ctrl+nArticles Share CopyHouses•Leiden, The Netherlands ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/140026/v-house-gaaga Clipboard CopyAbout this officeGAAGAOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodResidentialLeidenHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on June 06, 2011Cite: “V-House / GAAGA” 06 Jun 2011.

Porotu Bach / Studio MWA

first_imgPhotographs:  Courtesy of Studio MWA+ 33 Share Architects: studio MWA Area Area of this architecture project 2012 Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAText description provided by the architects. PUROTU –“Beautiful” – Bach (holiday home) in New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds at Bay of Many Coves Quite often at the start of the Design process, after we have had a chance to talk to the client and experience the site for the first time, you ask yourself should we do anything to the existing site, or should the beautiful natural environment remain as it is? At the Bay of Many Coves, one of the many Marlborough Sound jewels, our clients, when they introduced us to the Project, already had on the site quite an old cottage which was not in very good condition. Overall the site actually combines two individual lots with total area of 4611m2,with the building platformelevated about 10 meters above the sea level, at the lower level of the hilly site.The lovely positioned cottage was a single storied two bedroom building with a simple weatherboard finish and pitched Colorsteel roof, the dwelling was nicely nestled into the surrounding native bush. The client very much loved it and it was quite a difficult decision we together did to actually remove it from the site and design something new in its place. While it was emotionally a difficult decision it was a logical, more sustainable and cost effective solution, particularly with the knowledge of the remoteness of the site and the logistical requirements of any long term maintenance. Picton and Blenheim are the closest towns and the only practical way to reach the site is actually by boat, barge or by helicopter. Weather permitting it takes about 45 minutes to reach site via boat. So logistically this was obviously one of the main constraints on this project.

There are many reasons for this and included is to help us better understand the client’s needs, wants, preferences, requirements, any special spots and views and to visualize and experience the site’s constraints including access, orientation, context, services, topography and vegetation and any obstructions, or in simple wording the pluses and minuses we have to work with. Design team had the amazing experience of spending one weekend with our clients on the future site in the old cottage and by talking, walking, eating, drinking, fishing, photographing, sketching, measuring we tried to live as the clients do to be as familiar as much possible with the site and to try and understand our clients brief which we together developed even further.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAWe officially started the Project in July 2010 (Architect Agreement signed), but we started extensive collaboration and preparation, probably few months before that, fine tuning and developing the brief and created a strategy on how to work on this project. The clients brief was relatively simple incorporating : open plan kitchen, dining, living area with fireplace (wood burner), 3 double bedrooms, all with a good orientation and view, separate studio – office area, laundry-changing room after diving with exterior shower, main complete bathroom and a separate toilet. The outdoor space had to be very functional and needed to incorporate the existing spa while this needed to be strategically positioned to capture the view while remaining private, an outdoor shower in the same space was also a requirement. As is a standard requirement in all bach’s the provision of extensive decking with outdoor seating all around the dwelling and the ability for the BBQ to be used in a variety of locations depending on the need. Descent storage underneath the front part of the building with simple access was another desire. From the first initial sketches we did with our clients during our first site visit, it was obvious that we all had the same goal – to nicely settle the building in the existing environment, without competing or contrasting with the surroundings but to simply blend it into the natural environment. Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAAfter we decided together with the clients through careful analysis that the existing cottage should be removed from the site we did quite a bit exploration for the possible alternative positions for the future project, confirming that the current position of the existing cottage was the best. We rotated the new building to capture an even better orientation and view; we also decided that by pushing the building back into the hill the building would at the same time perform as a retaining wall to eliminate any future possible erosion while giving us the opportunity to sit the building even better into the site.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAThe solution was to stretch the buildings form along the existing contours, to capture the amazing view and takes full advantage of the very good position and north east orientation the result is the plan you can see. The front of the building is occupied with an extensive deck and acts as an extension from the open plan kitchen, dining, living area and the 3 bedrooms, the first to be washed with the sunrise, next to each other. The back of house was dedicated for services, including a bathroom, separate toilet and laundry and at the centre as a visual extension of living room, a studio with nearly full height glass orientated towards the calming native bush slope. Through the building we created an internal street – gallery, with a continual curved timber wall starting at the front of building flowing up from the timber decking one side and finishing as a retaining wall on the other side of the building and curving 15 meters further, creating very intimate private courtyard with outdoor seating, spa and outdoor shower capturing the lovely sunsets at back and the stunning view to the front. Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAStructurally, the Bach is a single story steel and timber framed structure with skillion roofs, seated at the front on timber piles and at the back on a 1 meter high concrete retaining wall and footing along the entire length. Top quality thermal performances of the building are as always one of imperatives in our designs and we incorporated all this into project. Sustainability is recognizable through every step working on this project, from quality position and orientation of building, usage of material and local resources, as much as possible nature protection, energy efficiency and allocation for further future improvement (solar panels for hot water and power), etc.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAThe main and the most dominant material on this project is definitely (together with grey tinted double glazing), Colorsteel metal roofing & wall cladding, by New Zealand Steel, helping to emphasize simplicity and elegant, clear, straight lines. The choice was a logical, easy and cost effective solution for a low maintenance material which performs very well in such a severe sea spray environment. As per our studio MWA design, the kitchen, laundry, bathroom/toilet joinery and studio fixed furniture where manufactured from marine veneer plywood as main cabinetry material with clear lacquer finish. Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAAll exterior aluminum joinery, as we specified, was executed from Fletcher Aluminium Pacific Residential suite and for the best thermal performances we specified double glazing with exterior Viridian grey tinted glass. Tasmanian oak was the choice for all interior floors with satin clear polyurethane finish to give a feeling of warmth to the interiors but remaining a lightness and natural appearance. Long curved wall (timber framed) with vertical cedar battens in random order is definitely one of the key features on this project and we try to take exterior , very functional element and use as spine through the interior and complete again outside creating intimate courtyard.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAOff white is predominant interior colour for walls, ceilings and interior doors, remaining the opportunity for clients to bring their personal touch through art work, memorable, family history details, etc. In very simple calm horizontally orientated architectural composition, we decided that the living area deserved to be the accent, so, simple higher roof with about further 1 m height will bring further benefits to overall design such as bringing more light to the centre of the space, provide better cross ventilation, bring more afternoon sun in living/dining/kitchen area and in interior differentiate vertically spaces. With this approach we combined the living area and studio which provided a surprisingly inspirational view towards the back of the property up to the native bush. Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAThe fireplace was very strategically positioned (centre of overall building), so as the heart of the composition it is visible from most of the spaces, while the distribution of heat is more efficient and visually it remains one of key accents without compromising extraordinary views. During cold winter days or spring and autumn cooler nights it is real heart of the Bach for memorable stories about diving, fishing, hunting, dreaming, about the past and future.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: ‘The Competition’ TrailerArchitecture NewsWuxi Masterplan: Mixed Use Building Complex Proposal / ATENASTUDIOUnbuilt Project Share Porotu Bach / Studio MWA ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/364421/porotu-bach-studio-mwa Clipboard Photographs Year:  Projects 2012 New Zealand “COPY” Area:  4611 m² Area:  4611 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Porotu Bach / Studio MWASave this projectSavePorotu Bach / Studio MWASave this picture!Courtesy of Studio MWAHouses•Wellington, New Zealand CopyAbout this officestudio MWAOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWellingtonHousesNew ZealandPublished on April 25, 2013Cite: “Porotu Bach / Studio MWA” 25 Apr 2013.

This summer beach house for a family of five and three guests is situated in Jbeil, along the northern coast of Lebanon. Despite its rugged nature, the site is restricted by a mandatory 10m shoreline setback. This limits the project’s placement to a relatively flat area between a secondary private road and the sea.Save this picture!© Géraldine BruneelThe project aims at preserving the natural qualities of the site by seamlessly integrating itself to the existing landscape. The overall design strategy had major implications on the programmatic and tectonic concept of the beach house.Save this picture!© Géraldine BruneelPublic spaces are placed at site entry level and private spaces are positioned at the lower levels. The top level is constructed as a platform raised on short columns, with the intention of minimal alteration of the natural rocky landscape, while enhancing the view of the shoreline. The edge of the deck is lowered, along with the strip adjacent to it in order to remove any obstructions in front of the view. Elevating and lowering of the terraces creates a sequence of seating conditions that further animates the outdoor deck. The stairwell and entrance hall are grouped with lighting and ventilation shafts to create a threshold between levels of public spaces.

Passive House Hradec Králové / Echorost Architekti

first_img Photographs 2011 CopySave this picture!Courtesy of Echorost ArchitektiText description provided by the architects. The house was designed for the old couple, whose main demands were low maintenance/operation costs and distribution of main rooms to the ground floor. Save this picture!Courtesy of Echorost ArchitektiIt was the specific shape of the plot which set a boundary of the house and together with structural constraints also defined a resulting geometry of the house. The geometry was based on a consistent extrusion of the house boundary. The proposal took into account also an option that clients could buy up the neighbouring plots. This came true during the construction of the house. The design of the house was optimized for the lowest energy demand while keeping other design demands (e.g. possibility to use the first floor as a second flat). Therefore the house met the passive house criteria and among else qualified for the appropriate government subsidy. Save this picture!Courtesy of Echorost ArchitektiThe main living areas are oriented towards the sun. The proposed system of exterior blinds helps to eliminate a summer overheating of the house while meeting the desired daylight levels. Due to the fact that certain aspects of the assignment were unclear (budget, sizes of rooms) and because of the necessity to optimize the energy demand of the house it was decided to use three-dimensional parametric model. This associative model reacted in real time on input parameters (e.g. boundary of the house, floor height, wall thickness etc.) and modified the geometry accordingly. Furthermore it was possible to simulate the behaviour of the house at any time and therefore optimize the house for the lowest energy demand, duration of the insolation or quality of the daylight. This strategy required enhanced time investment in the beginning but this investment was more than paid off in next phases of the project due to the constant change of the design.

Between them you can glimpse small sheds used to store agricultural tools. These sheds are usually made by local stone and their roof can be built in different ways. This project involves the renovation of one of these.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionWhen we were appointed for this project, the stone shed was in very bad conditions: the roof was collapsing and the external walls were about to fall down with it. We decided to restore it keeping as much as possible the original features because we wanted the shed to be well integrated into the surrounding landscape. Within the original walls perimeter we inserted an independent and different element to be read separately from the stone walls. This element is composed by two parts: a wooden volume and an iron one which serves as entrance and as landscaping telescope. Both elements were dry-built and then lowered inside the stabilized stone walls.Project gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: PPG Place / John Burgee Architects with Philip JohnsonArchitecture Classics”Too Radical to Implement Yet Too Relevant to Ignore”: John Hejduk’s Kreuzberg TowerVideos Share Year:  CopyAbout this officeStudio x ArchitetturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRestorationOtherSmall ScaleTennaHousesRefurbishmentItalyPublished on February 28, 2014Cite: “Little House on the House / Studio x Architettura” 28 Feb 2014.

In 2013 the first Onix climbing house was created in the small town of Almelo (the Netherlands). A house, situated at the edge of a new development area in a town like Almelo and designwise unbothered by any municipal inspectorate interference, not only presents the opportunity to live directly adjacent to its garden: it also makes the idea of literally living at a ‘higher’ level seem quite appealing, which indeed was the case for its future owners Tjeerd Willem and Erna.Save this picture!SectionFollowing this concept, Onix has managed to develop a dwelling for them, which indeed offers multi-level living possibilities as the house keeps on spiralling upward through a large number of different floor levels, till it finally ends in a roof terrace.Save this picture!© Peter van der KnoopEach floor level differs a mere 75 cm from the previous one, giving the building an atmosphere of continuous space. In addition, as these differences in height are quite minor, the use of balustrades for safety could luckily be avoided. For now the house incorporates 10 floor levels, allowing the possibility to build even higher in the future though.Save this picture!© Peter van der KnoopThe house is completely made of wood. The exterior consists of vertical planks, the interior and walls of multiplex. Tjeerd Willem has chosen to finish the interior walls himself, as well as build a concrete countertop for the kitchen. The interior is actually furnished in one piece: a continuous and complex totality of connected stairs, floors, walls, ceilings and wardrobes.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe design is reminiscent of Adolf Loos’ ‘Raumplan’. The climbing house with its surface area of 7 x 9m is extended to a gross floor area of 10 x 10m, thus integrating the structure in the space and allowing it to become ornament, structure, furniture as well as stairs, all at the same time.Project gallerySee allShow less20 Scholarships the AA BILBAO Visiting School: COMPUTING TOPOS III 2014 / Bilbao, SpainEventConference: Urban Routines 2013/14Event Share CopyAbout this officeOnixOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlmeloHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on July 01, 2014Cite: “Stair House / Onix” 01 Jul 2014.
