Lavaflow 7 - Mayer-Penland House by Craig Steely Architecture

Residential Architecture: Lavaflow 7 – Mayer/Penland House by Craig Steely Architecture: “..the dense ohia forests on hawaii‘s big island is home to countless species of plants and wildlife, as well as the ‘lavaflow 7 – mayer/penland house’ by local practice craig steely architecture. the linear one-storey home is based around a continuous concrete beam measuring 140 feet long, 48 inches tall and 12 inches wide, that runs the span of the entire dwelling. it is supported by three cast-in-place concrete vertical partitions that separate the public and private program and allow the glazing to take on larger proportions that create an invisible threshold between interior and exterior spaces. a swimming pool bisects the living area perpendicularly creating an outdoor courtyard that separates the living room from the bedrooms and kitchen. large retractable glass walls also allow the user to connect with the ideal climatic environment with a series of patios and small verandas and overhanging wooden roof structure that shades the inside from direct sunlight..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, views; extensive wood interiors..

* Residential Architecture: Ranco House by elton+léniz arquitectos asociados

Ranco House by elton+léniz arquitectos asociados

Residential Architecture: Ranco House by elton+léniz arquitectos asociados: “..The house is located in a privileged area of ground in terms of views, orientation, etc.. so the shape of the house adapts to the existing, respecting the existence of a large rock cliff and a number of native trees. Both the shape of the house as its program does not serve the purpose of intervening the natural landscape. that is why the house is composed of two volumes connected by a (glass) bridge way around the rock and adapt to the position of the trees..The language of the house responds to the use of typical materials of the south of Chile (shingles, wood) with its own language by treating the wood with carbonileo outward, giving the color black, and a natural interior. Moreover, it is used a more contemporary language with the concrete to create a high noble plane on which is mounted much of the program. The result is a mix between a typical southern barn and a contemporary house, taking care of the integration of interior and exterior, in which, like a tree house, the house takes a privileged position facing the landscape..”  Interesting form, details, interior volumes; exposed timber beams and rafters..

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 4 September 2012

Residential Architecture: Barn House by Cazú Zegers G.: “..A Barn´s wooden skin creates a relation with the surrounding scenery. It does not impose, but incorporates itself, to the traditional type of construction, typical of southern Chile.. This Barn house, is a contemporary representation of a traditional barn model. The use of wood covering for walls and roof , creates an interior twice as high festoned with somewhat high altillo windows and balconies leading to the surrounding landscape..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, nature views; abundant interior and exterior wood; interesting interior volumes..
