Kicking Horse Residence

Kicking Horse Residence | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

contThe Kicking Horse Residence by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is arranged as two elements: a dense bar along the northern edge containing the sleeping and bath spaces, and an open shell with living and dining spaces oriented toward the extraordinary mountain views.

A glass volume links these forms, with the main entrance at the lower level and an upper landing for ski access on the west side. Careful positioning of program enables a sense of openness and transparency while screening the neighboring homes from view. The linear form of the sleeping spaces cantilevers over a board-formed concrete base containing the garage, mudroom, and playroom.

Truro Residence: Contemporary Green Architecture by ZeroEnergy Design

Truro Residence: Contemporary Green Architecture by ZeroEnergy Design | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

Designed by ZeroEnergy Design, this modern green home featuring a spectacular water and sunset view is located in Truro, Massachusetts.

 

The west-facing orientation for glazing isn’t ideal for energy performance, so the rest of the building envelope was designed to offset the expansive view windows. Double stud framing allows a continuous layer of foam insulation and a geothermal system, coupled with a radiant heating system, will supply all of the heating and cooling for the year. In addition to energy efficient appliances and water heaters, all of the spaces are well illuminated using energy efficient fixtures.

The roof sports a large solar electric array to offset energy usage through the use of net metering. A battery back-up and energy management system will store electricity from the solar array; the combination the energy efficient building envelope and systems will allow the home to produce nearly as much energy as it uses over the course of a year...

House D by HHF architekten

House D by HHF architekten | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

Located in Nulgar, Switzerland, House D by HHF Architects has an oriention parallel to the landscape, making the view a matter of prime importance- aross more than 180 degrees, vistas include verdant land with mature fruit trees.


The design accentuates the site with a few simple moves: The main level is an open space – with the kitchen as well as dining and living areas – and alongside a concrete core, the stair to the upper and lower floors. The space is entirely glazed and blends seamlessly with the space outdoors. The outdoor space itself is an oversized terrace overlooking a pool. Because the terrain slopes downward slightly, the wood deck is elevated, which protects the main living space from the curious glances of passers-by.

Sustainable Development: South Chase housing by Alison Brooks Architects

Sustainable Development: South Chase housing by Alison Brooks Architects | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | 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...
