Kona Residence in Hawaii by Belzberg Architects

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Article source: Belzberg Architects

Nestled between cooled lava flows, the Kona residence situates its axis not with the linearity of the property, but rather with the axiality of predominant views available to the site.  Within the dichotomy of natural elements and a geometric hardscape, the residence integrates both the surrounding views of volcanic mountain ranges to the east and ocean horizons westward.

The swing pavilion exists from a composition of fifty swings that consists of wooden squares which forms the construction. The swings are assembled to the beams and have three different altitudes: 5 meter, 4 meter and 3 meter. This offers the possibility to adults and children to make use of the pavilion. Swinging is an action which gives pleasure and joy to the user. By building a pavilion with several swings, this joy can be shared with each other.

Stemming from the enriching life cycle of the organic plant, an inspiring design is proposed for a Taiwan Tower competition.

This natural concept embodies the very essence of the ecosystem within we coexist with, by mimicking the stable and collaborative harmony between trees roots and trunk system anchor and support the entire core of the building. Integrated with intelligent systems, this concept attracts the natural energy of nature and reinvents Cybertecture technology to produce a tower that is remarkable and extraordinary for people to work, visit and take pride in.

The school’s setting is a pastoral island in the vast, intemperate landscape of the Great Basin. Developed through a series of locally driven design charrettes, this facility was designed as part of a new educational campus for the Lyon County School District; serving as a new landmark in an otherwise expansive context, while providing a sense of permanence and identity for this booming historic community.
