Burton Residence by Marmol Radziner

Residential Architecture: Burton Residence by Marmol Radziner: “..This vacation home is set on the crest of a grassy knoll on a 160-acre site in Mendocino County, California, USA. The goal was to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the property by siting the retreat in a careful, simple, and unobtrusive manner. The 10-module home forms an L-shaped plan, framing views of a canopy of mature oak trees to the south and east..The road leading to the house climbs the hill and ends at the carport at the home’s west end. A set of concrete stairs lead up a gentle grade from the carport to the entry deck, which runs along the north side of the home. The main volume is oriented east to west and arranged in an open plan. The living room, kitchen, and dining room collectively open southward onto a covered patio with an outdoor fireplace and pool area. From the main volume, the master bedroom extends to the north, following the edge of the hilltop and ending in a private deck that takes in the morning light from the east..Long Valley Ranch utilizes a number of sustainable strategies and materials. Passive solar heating and cooling are achieved through use of concrete flooring, covered decks, and natural through breezes. A 17-kW solar array offsets the electricity usage of the house, and a tankless hot water heater provides on-demand water heating. Sustainable materials are used throughout, including recycled denim insulation and low-VOC paint..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, views; contextuality; sustainability..

* Residential Architecture: Altamira Residence by Marmol Radziner

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 3 May 2012

Residential Architecture: Altamira Residence by Marmol Radziner: “..Not wanting to disturb the land more than necessary, the four separate buildings–main house, study, guest house, and garage–were cut into the terrain reducing the need to grade the site.  As a result, the subterranean garage and partially buried main house seem to emerge from the ground as the land slopes toward the ocean.  Not only did submerging the buildings reduce the amount of site work required, it also preserved the ocean view for the surrounding neighborhood..Connections to the site extend beyond the physical locations of the structures and outdoor areas to the selection of building and landscape materials that repeat the colors and textures indigenous to the area.  Local shale was used to clad the concrete walls, the landscape boulders were harvested from a nearby quarry, and the over 30,000 plants were contract-grown from native California seed..”  Extensive glazing, lovely views, careful elaboration of landscaping and plantings, locally sourced materials, stone and wood, used extensively in the interior..

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 7 April 2012

Residential Architecture: Palms Residence by Marmol Radziner: “..located on a narrow, urban lot…The home looks inward, incorporating covered decks and a small courtyard space, giving the structure a sense of privacy despite its location on an infill lot. The home includes custom walnut casework in the living room and kitchen, concrete floors on the first floor, and eco-timber hickory floors on the second floor. The bed rooms have built-in beds and additional casework. The exterior of the home is finished with cedar siding. A series of screening techniques, including landscaping, fencing, and louvered panels provide shelter from the street while retaining the open feel of the home..”  Cedar cladding, hickory flooring, louvred privacy, abundant light..
