SD Residence Residential House by Colega Architects

Home > Winners > #50709


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
SD Residence

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential House

INSPIRATION:
Inspiration and concept for the SD Residence was drawn from theory and implementation from the International movement. The architecture is rational and volumetric. The massing is defined by clean lines and careful articulation of volumes. The interior is stripped down providing clean spaces free of structure and open to one another.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The property is sited on a corner lot thus privacy and experience from both the public and private sides of the project were studied. Clerestory windows allow light but preserve privacy along the street elevation and large pocket sliding doors are placed around the partially covered courtyard away from neighboring properties, preserving the neighbors' and users privacy. An integrated vertical louver system screens private areas on the second floor from the surrounding streets.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Conceptually, the second floor massing of the house floats above a light and permeable ground floor. The master bedroom wing suspends above the ground below to create an exterior, covered dining area flanked by a sitting area and the rear yard. This modern courtyard area becomes the signature moment of the project as the play of light and shadow, blurring of interior and exterior and the interaction of materiality are on display.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project design began in 2015. The project is currently in the entitlement phase with construction expected to start in early 2017.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The material pallet of the home consists of light colored smooth troweled plaster as the main field. Dark brick in a stacked bond pattern is used to contrast the light plaster and ground the house. Vertically oriented Tiger Smooth Mountain Gray Cypress charred wood siding accents the front elevation and is used to filling the frame of the light plaster. Finally, IPE louvers are installed to create privacy and add a delicate texture to the second floor.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
5,600 sqft home above ground with a 3,700 sqft basement including a subterranean parking garage.

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Pulling inspiration from the International Style and Modern Movement we researched notable architects and projects from that time period to develop the projects' language. Reducing building components into simple forms and embracing tectonic expressions is exemplary of the movement. The use of natural, honest materials along with ribbon clerestory windows and creating a sense of weightlessness as the significant feature of the house were ways we embraced theory without directly replication.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to preserve the initial concept and stay true to a pure diagram. Often program restricts and muddles original design intent and this is most evident when designing minimally. We were able to produce a functional and practical product while preserving the original concept by considering the impact of each move throughout the design process.
