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.

This zinc clad house trimmed in black richlite is built on an existing foundation in a tall pine forested site high above the St. Criox River in Minnesota. The existing home was beset with serious moisture infiltration problems which in turn gave rise to a host of environmental efficiency and air quality issues. The design team saved all the foundation and masonry components that were salvageable.

Central axis, symmetry and spatial hierarchy have always been the essential compositional elements in environmental design. They can be seen in both royal architectures and civilian residences. Our designers believe the creation of a symmetrical space can help people attain a state of mental equilibrium through the experiential and spiritual aspects. Thus, axis manipulation is the point of departure of this project.

The apartment is located in a newly built row house in Ljubljana.
Due to a smaller plot and greater density the houses were planned as two-storey living units. As a result there is a problem of small floor space.

To make a building of 4.75m width and 13m length not look narrow might be impossible. Nevertheless, interiors were supposed to be spacious and generous. Time to rethink traditional systems! So we developed a façade concept that occupies only 18cm and offers perfect insulation for both cold and heat. Columns are visible in the interior.
The relation between in and out is very much perceptible in the whole building. Due to its proportions, you may see the sun rise and set without leaving the room.
