The Longhouse Residential House by Aamer Architects

Home > Winners > #77446


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Longhouse

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential House

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by the traditional Malay Longhouse with the bedroom wing designed with rooms arranged in a linear fashion, opening out to the lawn and pool. Each cabana styled room shares common play-interaction area, with decks and verandas transforming the common corridor into more than just a passageway almost forcing the modern person to interact with each other, as they did in the old days.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bold in form and fluid in function, the house is conceived from merging the tropical language with contemporary lines and structure. The design reinterprets the traditional Iban Longhouse, with family communal areas outside the bedrooms to foster family integration.With the inward-looking orientation of the house, its facade and presence from the main road is kept subtle and non-descriptive, giving only little hints of what lies beyond.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
A characteristic of the traditional Iban longhouses is the family communal spaces which is here applied for the bedroom wing, rooms arranged in linear fashion opening out to a common play area.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project construction took 18 months, completed in 2009.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
natural ventilation, timber, tubular forms, communal living, modern architecture, sustainable

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The land size is 1,100 m2 with a total floor area of 1,800 m2, within an area zoned for good class bungalows.

TAGS:
luxury living, communal living, tropical, cabana, architectonic forms, cross ventilation, family, efficient

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Apart from a detailed site study, technical boundary conditions, its surroundings-built environment, the context more importantly in-depth discussions are held with the owners, the family and based on their 'wish-list';. We like to say that the new home/resident should be tailor-made to the occupants - however complex that sometimes is. And it is that challenge which is so interesting, not so easy however it is always very rewarding!

CHALLENGE:
With the Client's objective to provide each of the children their own bedroom but not have them hide in their rooms, the challenge was to provide inviting common spaces to draw them out. The Iban longhouse provides such inspiration, walls open yet protected providing the rooms in linear fashion.
