Stacko 3 Generation House by Kelvin Bing

Home > Winners > #40790


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Stacko

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
3 Generation House

INSPIRATION:
Given the concern of incrementing HVAC cooling systems cost in the tropics, the proposed residential home seeks to overcome local humidity via passive cooling design. Secondary to the brief, the design furthermore, strives to foster family bonding via implementing an open-concept living.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A slight cantilevered approach was then adopted to shield against incident rays from the mid-day sun effectively reducing the need for mechanical cooling in the ground floor public spaces, while establishing visual tension between the storeys. Its austere facade however is complemented by a timber screen with groove lines on white-wash paint.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Rudimentary space planning also suggests envisioning living and dining spaces as a single entity to not only promote social living and interconnectivity, but permit cross-ventilation to occur through to the utility corridor at an acceptable ceiling height to distance ratio. Additionally, a void is introduced directly above to promote interaction of users between different levels.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The overall design and detailing took 14 month from the date of the first proposal till the overall renovation from August 2013 to October 2014 in Singapore

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The rectangular plot boundary presented the perfect opportunity to apply Le Corbusier’s cubism principles, evoking a sense of rigidity and beauty with orthogonal elements. Stylistically reflected on the elevations and plans, the profile is not unlike a cube sitting atop the other, complementing one another plainly.
