Extremely Beautiful View of the River Bank House by Balance Associates Architects | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com

Extremely Beautiful View of the River Bank House by Balance Associates Architects | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | Architecture | Scoop.it
Balance Associates Architects have designed the River Bank house in Big Sky, Montana. The River Bank House sits along the Gallatin River just outside Big Sky, Montana. The clients love to entertain, so the house was set up to create an open and casual atmosphere with a strong connection to the outdoors. The house is oriented toward the best view of the river while maintaining good solar orientation for taking advantage of solar heat gain in the winter and keeping out the hot summer sun. The large roof over the living room serves to shade large areas of glass in the summer, while geothermal heat pumps and high levels of insulation help keep it warm and energy efficient in the winter. In such an extreme climate the house was specifically designed to withstand both extremes of the temperature spectrum.

Carraig Ridge Passive House designed to last 300 years

Carraig Ridge Passive House designed to last 300 years | Architecture | Scoop.it

The Carraig Ridge Passive House is an innovative home designed for those who really want to get away from it all; additionally, the energy self-sufficient prototype has been designed with a potential 300-year, cradle-to-cradle lifespan.

The project is the vision of architects Les Eerkes and Steven Rainville in association with Tom Kundig and Olson Kundig Architects. The prototype calls for nine homes to be developed in a cluster of 3 to 5 acre lots, with the intent that the development of a small portion of the property will partially fund the creation of a 4,000-acre Canadian nature reserve.

Fluid Otter Cove Residence Overlooking the Ocean in California | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com

Fluid Otter Cove Residence Overlooking the Ocean in California | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | Architecture | Scoop.it

Studio Sagan Piechota Architecture completed the Otter Cove Residence, a meandering home perched on a cliff, overlooking the ocean in Carmel, California. Here is more from the architects: “The large area of the house was disguised by splitting the house into two wings — recessing the house into the site and locating nearly half of the space partially underground. The plan-split created a courtyard, the eastern wing providing privacy from Highway One and the western wing buffering the ocean wind. Secondary spaces are located on the lower floor and borrow light from above through three staircases. These spaces provide respite from the panoramic drama on the upper floor. Roofs are visually pulled apart from the walls creating the affect of lightness and lift. Walls are located only where absolutely necessary for privacy or structure and treated as monolithic elements.“. Fluidity is the main attribute of this home, meant to be a natural extension to its landscape.
