The Ramp house / Archivirus

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/20394/the-ramp-house-archivirus Clipboard Year:  Text description provided by the architects. Athanasia Psaraki shared with us this house for a skater in Athens. Take a look at this impressive interior work.Save this picture!The ramp house is a project which tries to reconsider and redefine the living space. The client requested a “skatable habitat”. The result was a curved form interior, which set the whole house as well as the inhabitant’s life, into motion. In that space, which actually was a roof addition to an existing three- stored building, I tried first of all to achieve a balanced co-existence between the old and the new. The dominant material was the wood and so I used a wooden pergola and wooden horizontal louvers, which wrap up the whole new structure, ergo connecting the old with the new in a harmonious way. As a result the new volume obtained independence while still remaining an inseparable part of the whole. Save this picture!The ‘skateboarding’ element is adopted in every possible way. When the client asked me to design a home where she could be able to skate, I immediately eliminated the idea of just putting a mini ramp in the living room. For me, the challenge of this project was to make a living space where the ramp, the bowl and all the interpretations of those terms would actually become the building elements for this space. I wanted to make a ‘ramp house’ and not a ‘house with a ramp’. So I started imagining a space where the straight line would become curved and the flat surface would become a ramp or a bowl. Playing with these forms and with the variable transitions which offer, my main goal was to create a functional open space where aspects of daily life would adopt ‘ the feeling of acceleration’ which is basically one of the main characteristics of skateboarding. Save this picture!Having these in mind, I designed a home where the living room becomes a mini ramp and turns into a bowl to create a partition with the bedroom and the bathroom. Basic house elements such as the fireplace and storage units are hidden inside the ramp forms. I also tried to combine the street aesthetics of the skate scene using concrete and the cozy atmosphere of a house using wood. So concrete walls mold into the floor and then concrete turns into wood to create a ramp partition with the kitchen. In that way, the whole space is in actual motion and somebody can flow from one space to the other, skating or walking.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessIn progress: Porta Fira towers in Plaza Europa by Toyo ItoArticlesArchitecture as Investment, a public debate with Alejandro AravenaArticles Share ArchDaily The Ramp house / Archivirus The Ramp house / ArchivirusSave this projectSaveThe Ramp house / Archivirus CopyAbout this officeArchivirusOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAthensWoodHousesGreecePublished on April 26, 2009Cite: “The Ramp house / Archivirus” 26 Apr 2009.

An important part of our brief was finding a balance between new and old architecturally and sentimentally.  Our client wanted to retain the romantic elements of the house, and its sense of humility in a suburb of flashy new builds. She was simultaneously keen to have a new start in this house and have it feel her own.Save this picture!© Katherine LuThe strategy is a modest one: retain the original 1920s bungalow frontage and replace a poor 1960s addition at the rear. The primary move is to cave out central part of the plan as living spaces with clear views to the front (harbour) and back (garden). The central band of living space is contained on either side by cellular ribbons of bedrooms and utility.Save this picture!© Katherine Lu  The living space occupies the area underneath the peak of the original roof. The ceiling is removed and a series of distorted pyramid ceiling voids are created within the original geometry, allowing light into the centre of the plan, promoting stack effect ventilation and reinforcing the unusual order of operation of the house.On the high side of the site, the master bedroom is nestled against an existing cliff-face, juxtaposing its harbour view and a close encounter with mossy sandstone and a cheeky orchid garden.The intention is modest: a replacement addition that is fully concealed from the street and minimal facelift to the front.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Architecture of Alfred HitchcockArticlesBuenos Aires Contemporary Art Museum / MonoblockSelected Projects Share Photographs Architects: Tribe Studio Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/469315/house-chapple-tribe-studio-architects Clipboardcenter_img Australia Save this picture!© Katherine Lu+ 27 Share Year:  2013 House Chapple / Tribe Studio Architects CopyHouses, Renovation•Mosman, Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/469315/house-chapple-tribe-studio-architects Clipboard “COPY” Year: last_img read more

The context for this site consists of larger homes on one-acre lots.  Aesthetically, the neighboring houses’ architectural language is more often than not, associated with speculative developer trends and styles, rather than an integrated understanding of the site, the views, and other opportunities.  As a result, the project required a strategy which would edit out the immediate context of this neighborhood while focusing on distant views of the McDowell Mountains to the north and the valley to the south and southwest.  The project also sought to create a protected courtyard space for the backyard and pool area as an immediate focus for the lower level of the house in contrast to the second level taking advantage of the more distant views.Save this picture!Courtesy of Chen + Suchart StudioThe house presents itself as a series of sand-blasted 12-8-16 masonry walls upon which a stainless steel and glass clad volume floats.  The masonry walls are solid with minimal openings in order to edit out the existing context of the neighborhood while also ensuring privacy.  In specific locations associated with the entry courtyard and the outdoor space for a guest bedroom, the masonry gradually opens up its coursing to allow for light and air.  A separate weathering steel plate clad volume to the south houses the garage while also providing privacy to the pool area and backyard from a neighboring house.  Save this picture!Floor PlanEntering into the residence takes one along a monolithic field of desert grasses and through a portal created by two masonry walls and the volume above.  One is ushered into a garden space while being focused on the views north of the McDowell Mountains.  This garden space offers an area of repose in order to mentally dispose of the immediate context of the neighborhood before entering the house. Save this picture!© Matt WinquistUpon entering, the main living space is configured as one uninterrupted volume of space.  These public spaces open immediately to the pool and backyard living areas by means of sliding glass panels that fully disappear.  The entry garden is maintained as part of the living space’s experience by the stair being as visibly open as possible while maintaining definition to the entry area.  Save this picture!© Matt WinquistAn adjacent series of spaces in between two masonry walls house two guest bedrooms each having their own distinctive experiences of the site.  One is focused on the immediate backyard area while the other is focused on the more distant view to the north.  One larger bathroom space separates these two bedrooms while the water closet, walk in shower and bath configuration also maintains a focused view to the north.  Save this picture!Floor PlanThe master suite and office are located in the volume above.  A panoramic view of the McDowell Mountains to the north is offered in each of these second level spaces.  The master bedroom, dressing, and bathroom spaces are configured as one large suite in order to provide an open relationship while emphasizing the panoramic quality of the view to the north.  The roof overhangs located on the south and west sides mitigate the solar heat gain while also providing a patio space overlooking the courtyard space.Save this picture!© Matt WinquistThe upstairs volume is clad in 11 gage 4’ wide stainless steel plate cut to length directly from the coil, and 1” insulated glass panels with a silver colored high performance thermal coating.  The strategy of the cladding for this volume was to create an envelope that would best absorb the environment and allow for a varying perception of color and finish throughout the day. Save this picture!SketchProject gallerySee allShow lessLight Matters: Mashrabiyas – Translating Tradition into Dynamic FacadesArticlesDiamond Hill Crematorium / Architectural Services DepartmentSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/510479/staab-residence-chen-suchart-studio-2 Clipboard Year:  STAAB Residence / Chen + Suchart Studio LLC Construction Company: Structural Engineering: last_img read more

This modern ski chalet was designed as a weekend retreat for a family with school age children. Sited on the steep slope of a former ski hill, Mont-Jasper, near the village of Saint-Donat. At an elevation of 2,435 feet above sea level, the site is among the highest residential building lots in the Laurentians and Lanaudière regions.  From this elevation, surrounded by a dense forest of spruce, maple, beech and birch trees, the chalet commands 100-mile panoramic views over beautiful Lac Archambault.Save this picture!© Marc CramerTo maintain the natural topography of the steep mountainside and to minimizes the footprint of construction, the house was built on 8” x 8” western red cedar pilotis. Elevating the house allows snow and spring run-off to flow freely beneath the structure. In spring and summer, a forest floor of native ferns and moss extends uninterrupted beneath the structure. Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe home is accessed via an entry bridge, with the living level 30’ above grade. The main floor has an open plan connecting the kitchen, dining area, and living room. Spanning the length of the kitchen and dining areas is a 27-foot-long bay window and window seat. Below the upholstered seat cushions is concealed storage. A dramatic panoramic window wall runs the full width of the bay and focuses views on the remarkable landscape beyond. High on the opposite side of the chalet, a continuous clerestory window runs the full length of the house bringing in morning light and views of the mountain above.Save this picture!PlanThe kitchen features a large central island that contains a gas cook top and a prep sink so that the host does not turn their back to the views or the family and friends they are entertaining. The kitchen’s adjacency to the long window seat, creates a generous and comfortable place for the family and guests to gather after a day of skiing. Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe east side of the kitchen and dining room are built into a shallow bay that articulates itself on the entry façade. The efficient use of this cantilevered bay coupled with that of the larger bay on the north side of the house allows for a slender and efficient 14’-2” deep main structural footprint.Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe living room occupies the southern end of the home where daylight streams in from windows on three sides. A fireplace anchors the living room, while a smaller, cozy window seat with mountain views provides additional seating. Directly adjacent the living room, through a wall of glass sliding doors, is an expansive south-facing deck with an outdoor fireplace.Save this picture!© Marc CramerAt the north end of the main living level is the master suite. The master bedroom and bathroom also benefit from large windows that maintain the home’s visual connection to the surrounding landscape. On the lower level, the children’s bedrooms, a guest bedroom, steam room, and a play room all enjoy expansive views. One of the children’s bedrooms features a custom designed bunk bed, while the other has a cozy built-in bed, above drawers, set flush with the full-width window. Adjacent the steam room, the spa occupies the lower deck where it enjoys private framed views of the forest beyond.Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe exterior of the house is uniformly clad in dark stained white cedar siding. The angle of the metal roof matches the slope of the mountain. The exposed deep eaves of the roof as well as the finish material of the ceiling throughout the interior of the main living level is square-grooved clear western red cedar.

The RAG building is the first building to be realised by architectural firm Eek and Dekkers. The project fits seamlessly with the way Piet Hein Eek has been working for decades. Instead of worrying only about the design, Eek focuses on the entire process from idea to commissioning. Eek and Dekkers have found common ground in this approach. It is this command of the whole process, from concept to completion, that secures the result. This working method is characterised by simplicity, whereby existing elements are treated with respect and used as a starting point for new creations.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerIn its previous life the RAG building functioned as a pumping station, supplying the surrounding factories with compressed air and vacuum, among other things. The industrial buildings around the RAG have now made way for new build homes, so that the building has gradually become the centre of a residential area. The RAG itself has also been allocated residential status. The roof construction with riveted rafters, concrete coffering (‘bims’ plates) and large industrial steel windows give the building a unique character.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe concept for the development of the building was itself embedded within the building. A low-rise construction was realised across the full length of the façade on the south side of the RAG building in the sixties. The roof of this low rise formed a perfect roof terrace for the adjoining living rooms and kitchens. It was obvious that the living rooms should be situated under these beautiful roof structures. Save this picture!© Thomas MayerAs the building is so large, the plan with a terrace on the roof of the adjoining construction was a virtually perfect solution for the section adjacent to the facade. But what to do with the other section? After a, in retrospect, remarkably long period of deliberation and careful consideration, we found the solution. We decided to take out one section of the grid from the heart of the building, sacrifice two windows on either side and to remove the ‘bims’ plates. We thus created an open internal street in which the roof terraces could once again be realised to the south. The sun rises and sets beautifully over the building, parallel to the new inner street. With this intervention we were able to solve everything at once. The windows, doors and existing elements could again be 100% put to use. In the new inner street, we not only made the roof terraces but also all the necessary doors and windows. Wherever the upper floors meet the original steel windows in the outer façade, we devised a detail that allows the 30 centimetre-thick concrete package to correspond exactly with the original horizontal window frames. We respect and use the existing details and incorporate the rest in newly built  elements.Save this picture!SchemeThe inner street has a private-public character and is the property of the residents. They all live together under one roof, but there is no problem with privacy as the properties are south-facing. The living room wall of the neighbouring home is visible from the roof terraces of the properties in the inner street, with above it glass right up to the apex of the roof. The new window frames and facades of the inner street are all made of wood. Although we initially envisioned typical steel windows and doors, as were originally used in the building, budget cuts ultimately forced us to search for alternatives. The wooden window frames turned out to be a great improvement. Instead of imitating the old and building upon it, the numerous large glass surfaces are clearly distinguished from the existing elements. It emphasises the design and the additions – new is new and old is old.   Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe building stands upon an enormous basement that is half underground. This cellar was originally used to house supply and drainage pipes, maintenance and was also the foundation for the machines. As all existing windows and doors were based on this height, we reinstated the original level after completely demolishing the cellar. The living spaces on the ground floor are thus a metre above ground level and have a view of the surroundings, yet are not overlooked. The cellars are low, yet very serviceable as bicycle cellars and storage spaces. A ramp on the east side of the building provides access to the cellars adjacent to the central section under the inner street. The construction of the floor is as thin as possible and includes a large atrium with stairs. The atrium also provides two apartments on the ground floor with their own balconies.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerProject gallerySee allShow lessComic Break: No MoneyArchitecture NewsJean Pierre Crousse to Lead Speakers at Annual Charles Correa Foundation Z-Axis Conf…Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

The glazing wraps around the back to give views over every aspect of the garden from the house. Inside, the exterior darkness of the bricks combine beautifully with American walnut veneer fittings. The first floor, however, is the reverse – closed on three sides for an efficient use of openings. Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeThe materials used in Villa CG are timeless and of a very high quality. The long, slim bricks give the cube a delicate and elegant level of detail. The color of the brick was selected very carefully in combination with the wood veneer of the interior. This, in combination with the translucent door that separates the entrance hall from the living room, the sand colored Earthcote wall cladding, light grey polyurethane floor and a variety of woods make the house appear dynamic yet harmonious.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Mixed-Use Complex Expresses Past, Present, and Future of Chinese CultureArchitecture NewsWalmer Yard / Peter Salter + Mole Architects + John Comparelli ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Ossip van Duivenbode+ 13 Share CopyAbout this officePowerhouse CompanyOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEnschedeEnchesdeThe NetherlandsPublished on December 06, 2016Cite: “Villa CG / Powerhouse Company” 06 Dec 2016.

In the countryside between Parma and Reggio Emilia there are several ancient farms, now abandoned or in ruins. All of them have the same features, so that it is possible to recognize a building type: a compact block on three levels hosting the farmer’s residence, completed by a stretched volume hosting the cattle at the ground floor and the hay at the first floor. The cattleshed has three naves divided by brick columns supporting a vaulted brick ceiling, the barn consists in a big hall opened to the South, with pillars supporting oak trusses and a brick roof; both they are screened from the sun by a deep and high portico with brick paving.Save this picture!© Marco ZantaSave this picture!IsometricSave this picture!© Marco ZantaThe project consist in a conservative restoration of the cattleshed volume and in a renovation of the dwelling spaces. All the existing brick and stone walls, all the brick floors and roofs have been maintened, or, if damaged, they have been dismantled, restored piece by piece and reassembled; the same work has been done for the oak beams, the doors, the iron railings, the stairs and all the elements that it was possible to recover. Therefore in this way a project can preserve the witnesses of a long tale.Save this picture!© Marco ZantaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Marco ZantaSince the house is located in an active earthquake zone, the structure has been reinforced with steel prosthesis, hidden into the walls, the wood beams and the roofs.Save this picture!© Marco ZantaProject gallerySee allShow lessWendell Burnette Architects Designs “Mirage” Hotel for Saudi Arabia’s 1st UNESCO SiteArchitecture News7 Challenges That Prevent Architectural Originality, and How To Overcome ThemArticles Share Houses Projects “COPY” Ancient Farm Renovation / studiomas architetti Architects: studiomas architetti Area Area of this architecture project Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/800825/ancient-farm-renovation-studiomas-architetti Clipboard Area:  720 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Italy Year: last_img read more

The site is situated within an atypical urban/ rural condition. To the western front boundary addresses a 60km/h road connecting neighbouring headland communities with the city centre. To the east; a state conservation area bordering a secluded beach. Addressing these opposing conditions was a key consideration in the development of a central covered outdoor living room; the Garden Room. Providing relief from the vehicular traffic and oriented to capture distant filtered ocean views and the native bushland setting.Save this picture!© Jon ReidRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumWoodEGGERLaminatesThe terrain of the site informed both the building setout and planning opportunities. Set on an existing ridge form, the building follows the existing ground stepping down to create direct internal relationships with the outdoors whilst providing internal separation through subtle changes in level.Save this picture!© Jon ReidGiven the site’s bushland setting, the design had to address bushfire requirements. An informed response minimised the impact of BAL 40 requirements to back of house areas and allowed living spaces to be uncompromising by standard controls.Save this picture!Ground floor planKey design briefing requirements included: kitchen as the heart of the home, covered outdoor area engaging the landscape, children and adult bedroom separation and a valued entry experience.Save this picture!© Jon ReidThroughout the design process, the importance and impact the landscape; whether native or constructed, has been an emphasis of the design. Each room is oriented and framed towards a garden to enhance the experience and relationship between indoor and outdoor.Save this picture!© Jon ReidOur belief in an economic hierarchy allows for the right balance between cost and value to be achieved. We believe the primary investment should be made to spaces and items which impact the users on a daily basis. At Brass House, the design revolves around the Garden Room, the value of custom detailed, timber windows and doors, brickwork and in-situ concrete elements soften through native landscaping. For the interiors, built-in joinery is carefully crafted and enhanced through a white neutral pallet to strength the landscape experience.Save this picture!© Jon ReidWithout exhausting the budget external enclosure details; claddings, flashing and rainwater goods etc. which impact users on a peripheral level have been simplified. Utilising standard products, materials are simply crafted and finished dark monochromic to sit within the native bush context.Save this picture!© Jon ReidDesign is a process. Each project is a result of an understanding of the site; conditions and constrains, of working with people, engaging the client, with consultants, contractors and craftsmen, of collaboration to achieve outcomes not originally foreseen. Brass House follows this philosophy. The design outcome is a result of an informed response to these numerous threads.Save this picture!© Jon ReidProject gallerySee allShow lessTianyi Pavilion / UMSelected ProjectsYu Fu Nan / Indoor DesignSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904465/brass-house-anthrosite Clipboard “COPY” Brass House / anthrositeSave this projectSaveBrass House / anthrositeSave this picture!© Jon Reid+ 19Curated by María Francisca González Share 2017 CopyAbout this officeanthrositeOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNewcastleAustraliaPublished on October 25, 2018Cite: “Brass House / anthrosite” 24 Oct 2018.
