* Residential Architecture: House on Chesapeake Bay by Resolution: 4 Architecture

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 5 July 2012

Residential Architecture: House on Chesapeake Bay by Resolution: 4 Architecture: “..a 50-foot ramp sets the path into the house. Offering a glimpse of what’s ahead, upon approach the waterfront is framed through the window of the front passageway. The main level becomes the soul of the home, with the entry, a large outdoor deck, and zones for living, dining, and cooking occupying the L-shaped space. Understanding the social imperative of the plan, the path continues through touching upon all social enclaves, leaving the voyager to rest upon the main deck and an idyllic view of willowy trees, running children and floating vessels..The initial design faced several challenges. Due to the site setback, setback from the water, and the request of the owners to preserve a large tree on site, the residual area left for a thin lot and a small footprint upon which to build. The result was an exercise in managing and maximizing limited space to fulfill function without sacrificing spatial efficiency or aesthetic..”  Extensive glazing, interesting fenestration, abundant natural light, views, multiple terraces, outdoor fireplace, indoor/outdoor sensibility, cedar cladding..

* Residential Architecture: Vermont Cabin by Resolution: 4 Architecture (RES4)

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 30 May 2012

Residential Architecture: Vermont Cabin by Resolution: 4 Architecture (RES4): “..1,650 sf prefab home..With no electric or cell phone service.. ‘Off-the-Grid’..With stunning views of nearby Stratton Mountain, the home is a ‘Head & Tail’ design, where the communal space is the ‘head’, and the private bar of bedrooms and baths forms the longer ‘tail’. Together they form an ‘L’, creating an outdoor terrace to capture the western sun and to enjoy the exterior fireplace which is clad in cement board panels, and radiates heat during the cool summer evenings..This communal space is wrapped with a custom Baltic Birch bookshelf and window bench so one can soak up the south sun and view of the fern meadow and surrounding wilderness. With dark bamboo floors over radiant heating, and a wood-burning fireplace, the living area is as cozy as can be. The exterior is clad in a maintenance-free corrugated Corten Kynar painted metal panel system to withstand the harsh Vermont winters. Accents of cedar siding add texture and tie the strategically placed windows together..The home is powered by a 3,000 KwH solar array with a back-up generator in case the sun is hidden for an extended period of time. A hybrid insulation system, combining both a closed cell spray foam insulation and batt insulation, along with radiant floor heat ensures the home stays airtight and warm in the winter..”  Solar energy, bamboo, wood, views, social and contextural sensibility, lovely site..

* 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..
