Lobster Boat Residence, low costs and environmental friendly materials

July 14, 2009 By: Category: Home Design

Lobster Boat Residence low costs and environmental friendly materials 1 Lobster Boat Residence, low costs and environmental friendly materials

Portage Bay, Seattle, is famous for its dense urban shoreline site and their population issues. That is what Chadbourne + Doss Architects had to deal with when they refurbishing this waterfront property into a 2380 square foot condominium. At a place where the community bond means everything, a condominium with 4 detached residences and 2 houseboats that share a waterfront access, parking utilities and a vegetable garden sounds a lot more rational. To preserve the Lobster Boat Residence’s economical value, the designer had to choose low costs and environmental friendly materials to be combined with the existing original boat structure leaving no unnecessary wasted space.

Margoliouth House, Modern House Design by DLab

Pool view of Margoliouth House Modern House Design by DLab Margoliouth House, Modern House Design by DLab

Designed by DLab, this modern house is located in Singapore. This is house reconstruction on Margoliouth Road retains the majority of the existing 2 storey bungalow on the site. The existing house structure is retained and forms the largest solid volume which contains the family-oriented accommodations such as the Dining, Kitchen, Family rooms and children’s bedrooms. It occupies the western half of the site and anchors the dwelling as a whole. Three more pavilions were added to the eastern half of the site. The first houses the grandparent’s suite and master suite. This monolithic 2 storey pavilion is situated at the furthest eastern corner of the site to act as a counter weight to the existing house. The second is a double volume glass pavilion for the living room and is placed in between the first two pavilions. This space uses insulation glazing on three of its facades, allowing daylight to flood the room so that it is perceived more like a sheltered outdoor venue. The third addition to the house is a partially enclosed garden courtyard placed at the center of the house, making it the focal point of all the living spaces. The courtyard is treated architecturally like all the other rooms, with three sides of the space enclosed in glass and a staircase to the master suite cantilevering off its side wall. Source
