Villa 4.0 by Mecanoo Architects


Programme: Fourth time renovation of an originally 1967 villa.

Location: Hilversum, Netherlands
Size: 542 m2

Year: 2011



Awards

BNA Project of 2012


Architects: Mecanoo Architects
Design Team: Dick van Gameren in collaboration with IDing Interior Design and Michael van Gessel Landscape

Photography: © Pedro Kok



A bungalow in Naarden built in 1967 was extended and transformed by Dick van Gameren into a contemporary villa. The visionary design led to a timeless house that reflects the personalities and needs of its owners. Previous renovations closed off the original heart of the house from the living space and entrance hall.

The renovation restores the relationship between the landscape and the house that had disappeared over the years. Sustainability also played an important role. This renovation marks the fourth version of the house. Using the existing structure as a basis, the elevations and roofs were updated.

Insulating materials were added and windows and facade elements were replaced. Removing the walls in the centre of the villa created space for a new living hall that overlooks the landscape on four sides.Two geometric roof constructions with skylights contribute to a spacious and light atmosphere. Adjacent to the living hall, a new glass pavilion extends towards the flowing stream. A fruitful collaboration with various partners ensured the sustainable ambitions of the house were fulfilled.

As part of the garden design by Michael van Gessel, felled trees from the site were stored as firewood for the ultra-efficient wood-burning stove in the kitchen.

A heat pump, solar water heating system and LED lighting address all other energy-intensive requirements such as the heating, cooling, hot water and electricity. IDing designed the timeless interior to echo the architecture.

  • Golden Pencil 2013

  • WAN House of the Year Award 2012, shortlisted

Windsurf sail designer Robert Stroj moves from Europe to Maui to lead the design research studio of Neil Pryde in Kahului, Maui. It is in the middle of the ocean, far away from almost everything. The home in such an environment becomes crucially important. Besides being just a home, this house also works as a social venue for the owners. Therefore the kitchen and the dining form the centre of the house. The concept defines several ’houses’ under a common roof. Each separate ‘mini house’ is a U-shaped volume in order to open up and frame the perfect ocean view. The houses are self-contained private units combining bedroom and bathroom as an en-suite double room. A fluid public space between enclosed private volumes serves for cooking, eating, lounging… The roof concept is strongly related to the rough climate, with lots of sun and strong ocean winds. The area of the roof is twice the size of the house, so the size of the covered outdoor space equals the size of the indoor space. It needs no air-conditioning, since it is cross ventilated throughout. The folded roof is carefully attached to the walls of the U-shaped volumes and defines specific spaces. It also serves as a folded wooden sky deck and materially and topologically integrates the house with the landscape. Only local materials are used for the finishing of the house.

Nestled into a forested slope along the eastern edge of the Case Inlet, this small retreat opens to a western view of the Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound. Anchored by a weathered cedar clad bedroom wing, a bold concrete cantilever projects the living and dining into the forest and toward the view.

An ipe deck slips from inside the kitchen into a meadow to the south, separated only by large sliding glass doors extending the sense of interior directly to the outdoors. A broad flat roof hovers high above the living spaces creating the feeling that one is sitting outdoors amidst the trees.

Smaller, thoughtfully placed apertures define the exterior of the bedroom volume, along with a single large opening belonging to the master bath to give the users a ritual of bathing within the forest. A balance of simple lines and rugged low maintenance materials, this modest retreat is a welcome sanctuary from the city.

Seascape Retreat by Pattersons Architects

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Banks Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand

Area: 110.0 sqm

Year: 2011



Architects: Pattersons

Photography: © Simon Devitt


A romantic beachside cottage is set into a rock escarpment in a tiny boulder strewn South Pacific cove. It is a shelter designed as a honeymoon retreat for paying guests consisting of just three rooms, a lobby, living/sleeping and a bathroom.

This retreat is built using all local materials and is constructed largely from rock quarried near its site with in-situ poured concrete floors and an earth turfed roof. The structure is integrated into the escarpment above to protect occupants from falling debris. The cottage is self-sustainable in respect to on-site water harvesting and wastewater treatment. The project incorporated an extensive reforestation and re-vegetation sub project.

Its plan is an interlocking geometry responding to both near views of the Bay and far views out to Rocky Spires.  It is lined with horizontal macrocarpa wood. This timber forms integrated joinery, wall and ceiling panels behind double glazed low e-glass in storm and shatter proof steel mullions which utilise earthquake resistant sliding heads.

ANDREW 
PATTERSON
Director — B Arch (hons), BAS

Andrew heads the conceptual design function of the practice.

In 1988 Andrew represented New Zealand at the New Breed Architectural Exhibition in Sydney and received his first National Award for Architecture in the same year. During his career he has won New Zealand National Awards for Architecture five times.

Andrew approaches people, architecture and the environment as interlinking identities underpinned by the assumption that if a building logically belongs in its ecology, both environment and social, then the people that use that Architecture will feel they belong there.

He is a vivid architectural storyteller with a passion for Maori history and mythology and is a great advocate for Architecture that responds to this history, the landscape and sense of place.

In May of 2012, Andrew was named by the world’s most searched architectural journal, London based World Architectural News, as one of five Architects “whose directional ideas are helping to shape the future of world Architecture”. This achievement is unprecedented in New Zealand’s creative community.

Villa V by Paul de Ruiter Architects

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Program: Luxury, energy-neutral villa

Location: Bloemendaal, The Netherlands
Total floor area: 489 m² (including a basement of 154 m²)

Parcel: 994 m²

Year: 2011


 


Architects: Paul de Ruiter Architects

Project team: Paul de Ruiter & Chris Collaris

Structural engineer: Quinten R. Wildeboer

Contractor: Scholz Groep

Interior architect: i29 interior architects (i.c.w. Paul de Ruiter Architects)

Landscape architect: Kamsteeg Tuinen

Photography: Tim van de Velde & Peter Lipton


In the middle of the protected dune area of Bloemendaal, in park Brederode, we designed an energy-neutral villa complete with all the luxury and comfort. Maintaining the surrounding landscape was our starting point for the design. With as many natural materials as possible we built the house on a dune slope.

Absorbed in the environment

We came up with a design that perfectly adapts to its location. The first floor rises above the ground and the sloping landscape. The north and south façades consist of large sliding glass windows and French oak, and the other two façades are constructed of preserved Waxedwood. A large skylight in the center of the house guides daylight into the heart of the home.

“We used recycled wood from an old ship to build the entrance and the garage. ”

Efficient energy management

We organized a technical area in the garage where we placed a thermal storage system and installed the heat pump. On the roof we created an alternating pattern of moss sedum plants and solar panels to provide energy.

A wooden interior

Together with interior designer i29 we created a fluid connection between the exterior and he interior. Large surfaces of veneered plywood, used for walls, cupboards, beds and even for the fire place, connect various rooms in the villa to each other.

Paul de Ruiter Architects


medium_paul-thumbs

Paul de Ruiter is an architect, entrepreneur, innovator and inspirator known for his sustainable, game changing architecture. De Ruiter has been contributing to the national and international debate about sustainability, CO2-neutral design and building certification methods. He is a frequently asked lecturer internationally, writes articles for professional journals and teaches at the Dutch Technical Universities.

De Ruiter completed his studies at the Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) in 1990, where he started his doctoral dissertation “The Chameleon Skin” in 1992. In his PhD research he argues that buildings should produce rather than consume energy. Before founding his own Amsterdam-based office in 1994 he worked at leading architectural offices in Canada, Australia and the Netherlands.

Sustainable design is part of Paul de Ruiter’s DNA. His buildings are designed to allow the façades to respond intelligently to sunlight, enabling to maximize energy gain and storage. This is what gives his architecture its unique, recognizable and innovative appeal. Many of these climate façades are developed by himself, as his motto is ‘practice what you preach’. Moreover, De Ruiter believes architecture should not only generate energy in technical terms, but also in terms of the human factor. Values like happiness and inspiration combined with measurable factors such as daylight optimization to make intelligent, sustainable buildings.

Loft Cube

Location: Turin, Italie

Year: 2011

Project based on the concept of a transformable loft in a traditional apartment thanks to the “Daniela Scared” sliding panels in walnut, which can divide the individual rooms or, if left open, create a unique environment fully accessible with no doors or barriers.

The complete circumnavigation of the apartment around a central body, consisting of bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and laundry, allows panoramic views of the mountains and the Mole to be the main object of a scene made of glass and windows. The fully glazed living room is divided into three zones, zone sofa and dining area on the same level, while the TV area gets up to thirty inches on a wooden platform hosts a bookcase resting on the ground and through the use of cushions becomes a sofa to read books or watch TV in the underlying relaxation.

Steps in black American larch, stuck individually on the wall of the hall that leads to a loft consists of a second bedroom with cupboard with sliding doors in black sisal, and bathroom area.

The use of the resin in the floor stems from the desire to approach the concept of loft that makes all the objects resting on the floor neutral, predominant elements on the volume that contains them. Raised sleeping area by a collection of fifteen cm wall paneling always walnut by “Daniela Scared.”

Master bathroom with bath and sanitary area housed in a volume of natural oak and stone in which insinuates a shower of glass and resin. White lacquered kitchen through the hallway that connects to the dining table. All this surrounded by a beautiful terrace that surrounds the entire villa at 360 degrees.

Architects: Diego Villaseñor Arquitecto

“… In many of the architectural projects… his work with local stone is fundamental. The architect uses it in various ways- he manipulates it, cuts it or positions as it is- always with mastery and perfection, as the great builders of Mexico have done throughout the centuries as a people well versed in its handling. “I did my first house with lava stone in the Pedregal, neighborhood of San Angel”, DV comments. “They were stones from the same place. A construction that brought  with it the history of Xitle through materials from a volcano that, thousand of years ago, filled southern Mexico City with lava. It was material underlying the building itself…”

Rosanela Alvarez


“… On the other hand, we have here an architect who has always favored natural materials, especially those that are available locally. Stone and wood are thus granted preference, as well as elements from lesser category, in which the hands of artisans take on special significance; the whole, as always, having been judiciously designed and planned by Diego, himself…”

Louise Noelle Mereles
