Beach Haven Residence in Long Beach Island, New Jersey by Specht Architects

 
July 14th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Specht Architects

This house is located on the Atlantic coast in New Jersey. The lot is on the beachfront, but very small, tucked away from the street, and had many code-regulated square-footage and height restrictions. The challenge was to create something open and light-filled that takes advantage of its beautiful setting, yet uses every available square inch of buildable area allowed by law. The house was designed for a family of five. The upper level features a beachfront master suite, and each child has their own, uniquely styled “ship’s cabin”. The lower level includes a guest room / office, lounge, elevated hot tub area, and a large living / dining / kitchen space. All of this fits within a compact 2500 square foot envelope.

The first lines of ET Hus in Tisvilde was drawn on a napkin in a bar in Shanghai. The future owner dreamed of a sanctuary. A place he could use throughout the year, whenever he needed serenity and immersion in his private and professional life. It should be a holiday cottage – but not in the classic sense.

On Sand in Sweden by Wingardhs

An endless view is a hymn for the eye. The sound of the horizon moves your mind. A solitude site, with the sea in front and lush valleys in the back, is always the right place for a house. If the site is empty, you should build there if you can. If the site is built, you should by the house. If it does not fit your need, rebuild it.

This house looks for the maximum energy efficiency adapting itself to the program, the solar orientation, the views and the slope of the terrain.

The project optimizes the program grouping it in four boxes –kitchen, living-dinning, main bedroom and guest bedrooms- which can be used together or independently. Each box is placed carefully on the ground and rotates on its axis with precision to find the best views and orientation for their use. The bedrooms face the East, the garden and the Bellver Castle; the living and dinning room face South-east, the sea and the garden; the kitchen faces South and the vegetable garden; and in the attic over the living room, the terrace looks towards the view of the sea and its big window over the living room faces South allowing the winter sun to warm the main space of the house while the eaves of the roof protects from the summer sun.
