Sustainable Development: South Chase housing by Alison Brooks Architects

Sustainable Development: South Chase housing by Alison Brooks Architects | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Suburban housing development in Essex by Alison Brooks Architects that reinterprets the local rural architecture of wood and sloping roofs..


London firm Alison Brooks Architects used dark-stained timber and sloping rooftops for this suburban housing development.

Describing the goals of the development, Alison Brooks says she wanted to create "a completely new and more sustainable suburban housing typology where open-plan flexible houses are integrated with outdoor spaces to increase the sense of space and light".

 

The architect also emphasised the importance of creating "dedicated working spaces" in each house, adapting to the growing number of people who work from home and "helping to create an economically active suburb". In line with this, each house comes with an accessible loft that can be converted into an office and the larger houses also include a ground-floor study that doubles up as a spare bedroom...

Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects

Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Robson Rak Architects have designed a house on a 10-acre farm located in Merricks North near Melbourne, Australia. The property was bought as a weekender with the intention of building a new house with enough room for their family to grow and enjoy through the generations.


From the architects: 

In accordance to the client’s desire for simplicity and material honesty, the house has been reduced to a modest palette of earth, glass and timber. The majority of the internal walls are rammed earth, creating a beautiful, warm, textural look and feel.

The walls are 400mm thick with an internal strip of 100mm thick foam insulation, assisting the natural qualities of the rammed earth in maintaining a consistent internal temperature. The R-value of the walls up to a very high level, and the double-glazing of all windows and doors assists the building in being extremely environmentally efficient as attested by our clients. The high thermal mass of these walls has made the house thermally efficient. Openable windows on the east, west, north and south allows cross ventilation.

Minimalist Gottshalden House Blending With The Green Surroundings

Minimalist Gottshalden House Blending With The Green Surroundings | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Overlooking Lake Zürich, in Winterthur, Switzerland, the Gottshalden House is a relaxing three-storey home.


The house’s exterior is all covered in timber cladding. Located in a tranquil and quiet site and surrounded by a beautiful green scenery, the picturesque home was designed by Rossetti + Wyss Architekten. The simple, angular dream-like house integrates perfectly into the landscape, unveiling a breezy and uncluttered interior.

The L-shaped floor plan boasts oak plank ceilings and flush-mounted windows that offer framed views of the surroundings. Wood is the main material used to define the interior, which is well-ventilated and flooded with light.

Patrice Gerber's curator insight, July 15, 2013 1:26 AM

I am not convinced about the interior. A bit of a roller coaster.I like the use of some antiques as well as the use of more modern fixtures. Unfortunately the stair cases and hand rails are a missed opportunity.
