The lot shape is a basic rectangle and we adjusted the project to its size to get the most benefit from the space. On the facade 2 planes are clearly appreciated as part of the same volume. We decided to use stone as the main material to add strength and enhance the personality of the project. The second plane was softened with vegetation to mark the difference between both and define a gesture of the presence of nature throughout the design.
Tryghedsfondens familiehus is a house designed for families whose children suffer from brain damage and are hospitalized at Hammel Neurocenter.
The family house is designed for people going through very difficult periods in their lives. A child’s accident affects the entire family, and the family house must therefore meet a wide range of needs. It is our vision to create a beautiful and peaceful house where aesthetics and healing architecture meet – a haven for distressed families who find themselves in an extremely vulnerable position. The development of the project has therefore valued the individual needs of the families and has resulted in 3 concepts consistent with the development of the project: Home, Community and Privacy.
A private residence frames a spectacular natural context, on the hills surrounding the Galilee Sea. Folded in a plastered white envelope, the inner spaces are oriented towards the view and invite it to enter the family’s domain.
Xrange wraps a new layer of 80- 177cm wide by 7m high living spaces around an existing indigenous stone house to create an “extreme” new house of outrageous living proportion. The newly added programs of pantry, bar, study, library, dog house and bathrooms are new “rooms” averaging about 4m2 in footprint, but with soaring 7m headroom. The new house becomes a sequence of small narrow vertical spaces that interlock like the spaces within an ant colony.
Minaret house is an amalgamative representation of modern technologies and traditional ideologies. The house is situated in an urban setting in the National Capital Region. The immediate surrounding area has very high density most of which have been developed as replicated housing units. In the midst of this repetitive and dense urban environment, the Minaret house is located adjacent to a large golf course in a plotted development.
The volumetric envelope is almost the first of the premises when confronting preexisting and program requirements. The contradiction between a latent hostility in an apparent idyllic condition of the place is also.
LeapHome is born from the experience of LEAPfactory, gained through building in high altitude, in extreme and difficult environments. LeapHome is an unprecedented architectural solution that will revolutionize the construction industry: a house that is entirely realized through an industrial process, that is simple and innovative and adapts to your specific needs and desires, which is rethinking the dwelling paradigms.
Los Angeles-based architect Dan Brunn, AIA, Principal of Dan Brunn Architecture, redesigned the 3,600-square-foot former Janss Family residence—a hub associated with the contemporary L.A. art scene in the 1970s and 1980s—by using his minimalist aesthetic, while incorporating design cues from the home’s original architect Frank Gehry, FAIA. The entire first floor was gutted to create an open-air plan that accommodates work and display space for the owner, artist James Jean, as well as domestic necessities. Interiors are arranged around an existing oversized rectangular skylight. New windows were added to bring additional natural light into the kitchen and living areas. Brunn created a dynamic undulating staircase wall and utilized primary building materials—such as wood, concrete, and glass—as a nod to the architectural shapes and material palette famously used by Gehry at the time.
