Residence at the Swiss Embassy by Steven Holl Architects

Posted by admin on

This house located in Washington D.C, United States, and this house was designed to make residence including living spaces for ambassador, staff quarters and representational spaces. From the architects : “This scheme placed first in the competition of ten Swiss-American team’s designs for the replacement of the Washington D.C. residence of the Swiss Ambassador. It is not only to be a private house but also a cultural gathering place on which standards and self-image of a country are measured.

Sited on a hill with a direct view through the trees to the Washington monument in the distance, a diagonal line of overlapping spaces drawn through a cruciform courtyard plan was the conceptual starting point. Official arrival spaces and ceremony spaces are connected along this diagonal line on the first level, while private living quarter functions are on the floor above.

Materials are charcoal integral color concrete trimmed in local slate and sand-blasted structural glass planks. Constructed according to Swiss ‘Minergie Standard’, the south facades use passive solar energy. The roof is a ‘sedum’ green roof with PVC panels.

The existing natural landscape will be clarified with new walkways and trees, while the plateau of the residence defines an arrival square: a reception courtyard and an herb garden with sub-floor wiring flexibility.”

Act II House – Bank Street House Houston by FDM Architects

Posted by admin on

From the architects “The Act II house was design for a couple whose children had grown and left home. The house is an exploration of both how to expand the spatial experience of the typical suburban building lot and of the dual nature of the “empty nester” life.
A two volume organization with the volume oriented perpendicular to one another and connected by a narrow L-shaped circulation element allows for parents and children to occupy the house both as a family and individually. The two volumes define two distinct outdoor spaces that are discovered by the cisitor after traveling down the long entry hall into the open living room dining kitchen space.”
