Seamless and sustainable architecture in Big Sur, California

Seamless and sustainable architecture in Big Sur, California | Land Architecture & Typology | Scoop.it

Set into the hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur, California, this retreat, seamlessly integrated into the landscape,was designed by Carver & Schicketanz Architects.

 

Built as a vacation home, the key elements were to build as least disruptively to the landscape as possible and minimise visibility of and from distant neighbors.

In the words of the architects, "We wanted the home to blend with the land, and give the clients a perfect retreat. We accomplished this by cutting a wedge into the gentle hillside and using this space to accommodate multiple functions (garage, laundry, powder room, pantry, mechanical room) underground. As a result the native meadow rolls onto the northern part of the house and ties the building to the landscape. Therefore the house is barely visible to the uphill neighbors."

Sustainable features include hydrotech roofing system planted with native grasses for insulation and minimising aesthetic impact on environment, thermal mass from limestone flooring, rainwater harvesting and cross-ventilation.

Green Rooftop Spruces Up ‘Museum Of Art’ In Seoul | Land Architecture & Typology | Scoop.it

It is hard to find a green space in a big city, so the firm SAMOO Architects and Engineers decided to incorporate a rooftop garden into the Buk Seoul Museum of Art. 

The environmentally friendly, geometric rooftops filter rainwater and insulate the museum, while its quirky shapes invite people to experience art on the rooftop gardens. 

Visit the link to take a closer look at this eco-friendly museum.
