Sleeve House Single Family Residence by Adam Dayem

Home > Winners > #66132


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Sleeve House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Single Family Residence

INSPIRATION:
The house is conceived as two elongated volumes, a smaller inner volume sleeved into a larger outer volume, sitting on a cast-in-place concrete base. The sleeve creates two distinct types of interior space: between the inner and outer volumes, and within the inner volume. More public spaces of the house (entry gallery, dining, living) are in between the inner and outer volumes. More private spaces (bedrooms, bathrooms, study) are inside the inner volume.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The inner and outer volumes are wrapped with a charred wood skin. The charring is a traditional Japanese process that leaves wood blackened and highly resistant to weather and rot. Boards of varying thickness and depth are placed flat and on-end to give the facades depth, pattern, and texture. The on-end boards run continuously as screens over windows on the long sides of the house to emphasize purity of the sleeved volumes and reference the volumetric simplicity of weathered barns in the region.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The house is designed as a weekend and vacation home for art-collecting urban dwellers with a love of Hudson Valley landscapes. Large expanses of glass frame views of the Catskill and Taconic mountain ranges. Large interior walls and concrete pedestals support the installation and display of various types of artwork. The house has a striking appearance on the landscape and unique spatial experiences for its inhabitants, while at the same time providing comfortable, livable domestic spaces.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Design: 2013-2015 Construction: 2015-2017 Taghkanic, New York USA

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The sleeved volumes sit on an exposed cast-in-place concrete base that forms the walls, steps and floors of the lower level. The floors and steps contain radiant heat elements, and together with the walls, they create a large thermal mass that significantly increases heating and cooling efficiency. Other energy efficient features including solar power with battery backup, a heat recovery ventilator, triple-pane glazing, water and sewer self-sufficiency, very low air infiltration and native plant landscaping keep the home’s CO2 usage at approximately 1 metric ton per year.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
250 square meters interior space

TAGS:
house, architecture, architect, sustainable, concrete, wood

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In the design of the house, aesthetics and sustainability are complementary. The inner and outer volumes are both wrapped around their tops, bottoms, and longs sides with charred wood. The charring is a traditional Japanese process called shou sugi ban, which leaves wood highly resistant to weather and rot. The wood itself is acetylated soft wood, which combined with the charring, creates a low-maintenance 50-year exterior cladding product that does not require harvesting old growth forest.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge of the project was to develop a contemporary house for a highly sophisticated design sensibility, but at the same time reference the historical character of the Hudson Valley. The tilt of the building creates a contemporary design language though a sense of dynamism, yet the simplicity of volume and rough textured facades reference historical barns in the Hudson Valley.
