Design it ‘Layered’

The owner’s of ‘The Ash’ came to Dalecki Design looking to create a light, bright home with a functional layout utilising a layered, mixed material palette. As a young, growing family, it was imperative that the home was not only suited to their current lifestyle needs, but also supported them through the different stages of life. It was also extremely important for the family that there be a strong connection between the indoor and outdoor living zones that takes advantage of the block’s northern aspect.

Working closely with the client, Dalecki Design was able to create a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom family home with a durable, mixed material palette that will stand the test of time, with the inherent beauty of each product ageing alongside the growing family.

Dalecki Design created a ‘U’ shape layout for the home, which wraps around a central courtyard and alfresco zone, creating a cohesive indoor/outdoor connection. This layout allows the home owners to have views to the outdoors from all areas of the house, whilst also allowing the northern sun to penetrate through the open courtyard and into the home.

Openings throughout the home are strategically positioned to gain winter northern sun whilst also capturing the summer breezes. The pond on the southern orientation of the home acts as a ‘cooling zone’ to further assist in cooling these summer breezes before they enter the home, whilst also providing a dual sided outdoor view from the open plan living zone.

Given the home’s footprint takes up a large percentage of the block, layered landscaping has been incorporated to ensure that wherever the family may be within the home, they will have clear views of external greenery. This includes the rooftop garden which has been incorporated to provide a sense of being grounding with the surrounding environment from the upper level of the home.

The layered material palette incorporates feature brick and block work which seamlessly flows from inside to out, as well as exposed concrete and timber to add a textural dimension to the simple form of the house. The continuation of the layered, mixed material palette from the internal to external zones aids in the flow between the indoors and outdoors, creating cohesion between these two spaces. The home owners experience the sense of cohesion between the two zones as soon as they walk through the front doors, being greeted with obscured views of the central courtyard through a breeze wall screen, providing an immediate connection whilst still retaining an aspect of privacy.

The home has been separated in to two distinct zones over two floors, allowing both the children and the parents to have their own space and privacy as they grow. The home’s compact, yet spacious functional layout means there are no large distances to travel between internal spaces, with the ability to easily site and communicate between spaces creating a sense of connection internally between all zones.

A feature two and a half storey entry void, with north facing clerestory windows have been incorporated to flood natural light to the central passage, brightening a traditionally dark area of the home and diffusing light throughout to create a light, bright home.

River Retreat by Edwards White Architects

Recipient of the NZIA New Zealand small project architecture award, the simple skewed form of this house has an appropriate scale and presence within the wider landscape. On arrival visitors are led up a path alongside tall cedar screens before stepping up onto a deck and informally entering.  Capturing this sense of informality was a key design driver in creating a small family home that felt like a retreat. The kitchen is the hub of the home with the deck slicing through the plan. The living space steps down into a light filled volume reaching out to the river. A mezzanine pulls over above with an exposed bookcase balustrade providing a sense of homeliness. The rear of the house, delineated by the seamless pivot door, provides a place to retreat.

Capturing a sense of informality was a key design driver in creating a small family home that felt like a retreat. The Bach typology of blurring of spaces and breaking down of thresholds corresponds with the expressed natural materials and tectonic detailing.

The Makers House by Liddicoat & Goldhill

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: East London, UK

Internal Area: 221 m²

Client: Liddicoat & Goldhill


Awards

RIBA London Award 2018



Architects: Liddicoat & Goldhill

Contractor: Liddicoat & Goldhill Development LTD

Structural Engineers: Fluid Structures

Model Photos: Sam Grady

Photography: Keith Collie & Jo Willis



Having bought the site in 2012, we won planning permission, raised finance and built the house – by hand as the main contractor – over the following four years. We set their own brief – to explore the ideal texture and atmosphere of domestic architecture. This experimental objective was achieved while simultaneously satisfying the constraints of speculative residential development.

Set within the Victoria Park Conservation area, the irregular site was constrained by neighbours’ rights to light, and proximity to Listed Houses. Scrupulous computer analysis allowed the house’s asymmetric form to be tuned to capture key moments of sunlight while forming apparently regular interior spaces.

Our pursuit of craftsmanship and tactility is reflected in the House’s rich palette and varied processes of fabrication. The exterior combines roman brickwork with inky pigmented zinc roofing and bleached larch carpentry. Internally, the structural steel- and timber-work is exposed, and is married to a restrained palette of reclaimed and re-purposed industrial materials.

At ground floor, a multi-level ’broken plan’ combines the raised sitting room, lofty kitchen and intense basement snug and larder. Each room maintains a discreet atmosphere programme, despite forming a highly connected living terrain. A ground source heat pump is the main source of energy for the house.

Increasingly lightweight materials are deployed in the upper, sleeping levels, which are unified by a rhodesian mahogany floor reclaimed from Hove Bus Station. The attic is conceived as a north-lit studio, while calm bedroom suites are arranged on the first floor. To the rear an expansive suite combines spaces for sleeping, bathing, dressing and contemplation. A panelled wall slides on cast iron to one side to define or amalgamate the bedroom and bathroom spaces. Expansive, bright circulations are designed to display art and family objects, or for occupants to enjoy moments of pause.

The opportunity to live simultaneously in the center of the city and in an isolated refuge presented a powerful circumstance for this family of four. The house emphasizes a dynamic spatial sequence while also creating an abstract backdrop for the serendipity of light, reflection, circumstance and view.

An unmitigated roof defines a precinct for living and creates continuity throughout the property while a delicate custom-glazed window wall, accentuated by monolithic corner glazing, connects the interior to the outdoors. Inhabitation is here defined between a lush front courtyard and a dynamic expanse of nature behind. A magnificent live oak with an unusually tall trunk allowed for adjustment of the steep grade. The ubiquitous wood ceiling opens to allow the tree to pass through and an ipe deck permits the penetration of water. A second opening in the ceiling invites light and rain deep into the core of the house.

Located in a land conservancy, a collection of wood-clad cubes orient toward a pond at the bottom of a sloped site. These eight forms touch the ground lightly and follow the topography of the land, linked by glass enclosed hallways. Their simple shapes are strong silhouettes in an agricultural landscape, organized in a shifting grid akin to agricultural plots in the area. The slatted weathered hemlock cladding is a nod to the utilitarian barn structures that dot the local landscape. From the drive approach, the house gives little away, solid and almost bunker-like with entry flanked by a concrete wall and high clerestory. Entering through a glass “bridge” allows a glimpse of the pond beyond. Designed as a remote working studio for a photographer, the single room structures are divided by function—live, work, sleep. A detached pair of cubes houses a photography studio and darkroom. Living, dining and bedrooms comprise another cluster, centered around a shared outdoor space. There is a porosity to the interior world of this retreat. Glass hallways link the boxes and transform into open air bridges. Full-height picture windows and ventilation openings align for expansive views to the landscape. The result is privacy between the different programmatic elements in each cube, with a visual layering of space as the land is slowly revealed.

Channeling the spirit of the home’s original designer, the late Joseph Esherick, daylight and landscape were the primary objectives of this contemporary transformation. Central to the design is a multi-storied interior garden atrium that captures outdoor space within the home’s interior and pulls daylight deep into the spaces within. At the rear, a new lower level physically connects the interior to the landscape as the façade reorients both indoor and outdoor spaces toward the views beyond while editing neighboring structures for mutual privacy. Earth and sky, heavy and light, is reinforced through materials of concrete, wood, glass, steel and diffused light.

2018 AIA|LA Residential Architecture Award



Architects: Rios Clementi Hale Studios

Our client’s “dream house” is designed specifically for the Venice lifestyle. These indoor-outdoor spaces take advantage of every inch of an extremely narrow lot.  Every room opens onto the outdoors, making the home feel like a garden pavilion. Minimal but elegant landscaping in the side yards maximizes the feeling of openness.

A long, thin swimming pool and infinity-edge spa carry the feeling of expansiveness all the way to the guest house at the back of the lot. The house features the same kind of continuity. A concrete floor begins outside the front entry, and extends all the way through the house to the pool deck.  Plaster walls are tinted the same color as the floor. Sliding glass doors between the central entertaining space and the pool disappear completely behind the exterior walls when completely open. The second floor is composed of two folded white planes, each containing a bedroom suite. They interlock at the central staircase, a dramatic and airy vertical space with views of the double-height outdoor dining area.

The architecture on this residence for a young couple is a study in strong simple composition and materiality with an emphasis on craft. The massing defines solid and void, captures natural light, and connects the indoors with the landscape, seeking to ‘experience the outdoors from within.’The ground floor volumes wrapped in an elongated hand-fired brick, emphasizing the horizontality of the architecture that lays solidly on the land. Bronze-trimmed ceiling planes slide between the brick masses, and floor-to-ceiling glazed openings are captured by thin-profiled bronze frames. In contrast to the grounded brick volumes, the second floor is clad in stainless steel panels and oversized aluminum-framed windows. The lightness and openness of the second floor is nestled among the oak-tree canopies of the site.

A custom-designed element is the steel mesh screen that wraps around to enclose the kitchen for privacy, separating this from the more public “guest hosting” areas adjacent. The steel screen slides along a track embedded into the teak slatted ceiling and disappears into the pantry when retracted.At the basement level, a wine cellar and tasting room open to a sunken landscaped courtyard. A grand stairwell of floating stone steps connects the three levels. A freestanding structure set deep back into the site is a zen-like fitness/yoga studio as well as a guesthouse with a kitchenette”. An exterior trellis connects the main house with the backhouse and studio, and helps frame the backyard and surrounding landscape which integrates California native plant species, grasses and trees to compliment the materiality, geometries and site response of the architecture.

A private, landscaped, north-east courtyard forms the catalyst of the ‘V House’, which sits proudly on the edge of Sunshine Coast’s Mooloolah River. The ‘V’ refers to the floor plan which hugs the boundaries of the property allowing for a transparent living pavilion that physically and visually connects the courtyard to the water beyond. The architecture continues SLA’s dialogue of concrete, timber and stone, drawing heavily from both Modern and South-American, subtropical narratives.

An existing heritage building is transformed through the introduction of a modern, two-storey addition that playfully re-interprets the distinctive geometry of the original dwelling through a contemporary lens. Capturing abundant natural light and garden aspects, the new addition employs a refined and subtle palette of brick, steel and timber.

Capitalising on the site’s orientation and garden aspect, every component of the new addition is oriented to achieve maximum natural light and ventilation while also enjoying a leafy garden aspect.

A conscious effort has been made to retain the key heritage features and structure of the existing dwelling by providing a clear separation to the modern extension. The two buildings are connected via a glazed link screened by hit-miss brickwork and a courtyard that celebrate the existing architecture and cascade into the landscape clearly separating the heritage building from the proposed contemporary extension.

The form responds to the hips and gables of the prevalent existing heritage buildings. A central focus is the sculptural staircase, which delivers its occupants from the ground floor to a landing study nook, set under a folding origami, timber-lined ceiling. The downstairs living spaces, while all being open plan, are delineated by a series of levels. These levels choreograph an engaging journey through the various components of the space (living, kitchen, dining, study), imagining each as its own individual space yet linked through a palette of textured materials and clever sightlines that provide striking vistas taking in the depth of the site and its multiple facets.
