* Residential Architecture: Glass House for Diver by Naf Architect & Design

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 6 June 2012

Residential Architecture: Glass House for Diver by Naf Architect & Design: “..an ocean-side residence..the exterior is generated by stacking 1 x 1 x 1.5 meter blocks on top of one another, similar to the form of breakwaters to dissipate waves. manufactured from leftover concrete, the blocks are produced by accumulating the extra material at a cement factory..the pace of the house’s construction was directly dependent upon the formulation of the components, as construction waited for their phased arrival to the site. an unusual way to schedule a project’s process, this example of ‘slow architecture’ is not perceived as a normal approach in modern day construction..a groove cut into the surface facilitates the lifting of the elements into place by crane. reinforcing bars are placed through the unit to stabilize during seismic events. stacked in rows, the alignment of vertical joints dictate the standardized shifts between them to create even intervals. the open-weave arrangement allows wind to pass through while obscuring views for privacy inside. sunlight reflects off the surface and into the interior which is enclosed with a glass wall set inside the perimeter blockade. a steel roof shelters from solar gain..”  Truly extensive glazing, exceptional site, natural light and views, privacy, clean, sharp interior decoration..

* Residential Architecture: La Lucia House by SAOTA and Antoni Associates

Posted by the editors on Friday, 1 June 2012

Residential Architecture: La Lucia House by SAOTA and Antoni Associates: “..a relaxed family holiday beach house..A sense of arrival is enhanced by an austere entrance flanked by two of the milkwood trees. The cinematic panorama is only revealed as one enters the double-volume hallway. The ceilings are clad with aligned timber slats which draw the eye to the seascape ahead..The ground level can be enjoyed as one continuous space or arranged into more individual and private spaces. All the spaces open up either onto the sea facing pool deck or to the afternoon sun lit garden on the West. The four sea-facing bedrooms are located on the upper level and open onto private individual terraces..The East sea-facing façade is ‘wrapped’ with a series of bronzed anodised aluminium sliding screens that cocoon the structure entirely or in part. The screens, inspired by the milkwood trees, create the home’s signature..The Interiors by ANTONI ASSOCIATES express simplicity and restraint while making the home comfortable and cosy. Sand-coloured polished concrete floors, bleached timber, natural leathers and grey linens, are anchored by soft neutrals and countered with touches of charcoal, teal and azure..  Extensive glazing, natural light, views, flexible interior disposition, materiality and coloristic sensibility, interesting interior volumes..

* Residential Architecture: House on Fire Island by Resolution: 4 Architecture (RES4)

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 30 May 2012

Residential Architecture: House on Fire Island by Resolution: 4 Architecture (RES4): “..Located on Fire Island, a barrier island off of Long Island, NY..The house is designed as two distinct volumes, to provide the parents and their adult children with separate quarters for living and entertaining. The volumes are clad in cedar and connected by a glass bridge, sheltering a courtyard and pool, which receive western exposure for maximum daylight..The design of the house prioritizes views and access to the outdoors. The typical configuration of private spaces stacked on top of a lower public zone is flipped; in this residence, the communal upper level enjoys the best views and access to outdoor decks for entertaining. Kitchen, dining, and living space flows out to the bay beyond, ideal for watching summer sunsets. Large expanses of glass, in the form of continuous sliding doors break down the boundary between interior and exterior, and add to the airy, openess of the house..”  Extensive glazing, lovely views and site, abundant natural light, contextual sensibility, cedar cladding, terraces, courtyard..
