Near Far House Single Family Residential by Willis Pember

Home > Winners > #63911


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Near Far House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Single Family Residential

INSPIRATION:
Modern Painting, especially early cubists, identified congruence in the juxtaposition of typical settings of dramatically different scale and proximity - table, bottle, newspaper, distant landscape, weather and daylight - that create, albeit abstract, a more whole or thicker experience. A table, table setting, window, light and sound and shadows are mutually and reciprocally intertwined.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Near Far House involves itself in the ability, or counter-positioning of a structure, to acknowledge a specific matrix of landscape engagements. Architecture integrates a vicinity. Less an object than a series of configurations, each is a hinge or pivot in a matrix of engagements.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Near Far house achieves an interior integration of landscape elements that appear as 'near' site conditions to the north with 'far' conditions to south and are experienced simultaneously on the upper floor. The living area moreover is continuous and expansive with internalized outdoor settings that capture similar conditions.

1635 Silverking drive Aspen, Colorado, USA 81611 design 5 years, construction 1 year

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Research consisted of an in-depth exploration of the nature of enclosure on this site, and thereby opening up the possibility of invention. So too materials and the inherent features of the site played into what the enclosure could maximally become, in order to embrace, and work with site and material issues and how they impacted the work of the enclosure.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult creative challenge consisted in the integration of a new, single family residential construction with that of an pre-existing 1970's single family home, and make the two units appear contemporaneously composed, while at the same time, not replicating the older vocabulary, but offering a construction of its own time.
