* Residential Architecture: Tiltpanel House by Irving Smith Jack Architects

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 3 May 2012

Residential Architecture: Tiltpanel House by Irving Smith Jack Architects: “..Conceived to provide a durable, cost efficient and thermally sustainable house solution for a young and creative family, the Tiltpanel House was developed using a commercial approach to fabricating buildings with preformed insulated concrete panels. The industrial structure was then domesticated with applied layering of texture and light to soften and warm as a family home..The weight of the concrete perimeter is softened and de-scaled with layers of light and texture applied internally and externally against the smooth sanded concrete walls. Varying glazing opacities pattern and articulate light and view while hung western cedar screening overprints and manipulates shadow. Internally plywood ceilings and joinery then provide natural texture and warmth, with flat finished sheet linings contrasting the imperfection of the concrete..”  Views, glazing, repurposed commercial approach to building fabrication, indoor/outdoor sensibility, wood, concrete..
