On a steep mountainside in the Appalachian Mountains, a modern lair will be created. The approach road curves in and out, following the mountain’s topography. The road affords, and then takes away, views of the sleek, modern box through the trees and around the topography.

DAS SWARTZENREADER HAUS in Winchester, Virginia by Reader & Swartz Architects

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Article source: Reader & Swartz Architects

This house was originally built in 1968. It had a 4/12 gable roof, a boxy, conventional floor plan, and a second floor that cantilevered two feet past the first floor. The house sat on the top of a very steep hill, on a small corner lot, within an established neighborhood. Although the house had an amazing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was virtually no way to appreciate it through the minimal number of small windows. The lot dropped 30 feet within its 100-foot depth, helping give the house its great view and vantage point, but also making grading and access difficult. The 8′ ceilings were interrupted by bulkheads, lowering them to 6′-8′ in some rooms.

Myrto House by Vakis Associates

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Article source: Vakis Associates

This is an exercise to make this two storey building appear as a single storey by placing the first floor on top of a ground floor stone plinth on the street side, hiding all ground floor activities. At the same time extensive shaded glazing on the garden and pool side is creating a horizontal void directly connecting and unifying the indoors with the outdoors. The combination of the heavy stone base and the continuous glazing makes the curved concrete structure on the first floor appear to be floating. The elevated site has unobstructed views to the Pentedaktylos mountains during the day and the lights of Nicosia town at night. The open space between the guest bedroom and living room creates a sheltered outdoor sitting area with an open fire. The plan is linear and all rooms share the same stunning views.
