Stockholm Library in Sweeden, by Studio ST Architect

July 01, 2015 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Stockholm Library, located in Sweeden, designed by Studio ST Architect. When looking for intelligent structural solutions we sought to use the inherent structural logic of the library – the bookshelf. Instead of creating a building and filling it with book structures (shelves) why not use the book structures as a building structure? This programmatic structure combined with the site constraint led to the development of the overall structure: eight large cores support a three-meter high space frame. Off of this preliminary structure a dense grid of 1×2 meter steel cables is suspended. This grid extends throughout the building to support everything from the façade to the book shelves. The cores shift from their original grids to keep a six meter distance from the subway tunnel below grade.

Slice House, in Atlanta by Studio ST Architect

July 01, 2015 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Slice House, located in Atlanta, United States, designed by Studio ST Architect. The house is an extruded box from which slices were cut to reduce the square footage and create an intelligent and beautiful house. Cuts into the basic form reveal its shape and functions. A slice in the front of the house places the carport on an incline and conceals the parked car from the street. A large opposing slice on the south side removes a volume to create a covered sun deck. A number of other slices give form to the entry, dining room, and several windows.The sum of the slices is a set of spaces simple in their design and materials yet spatially intriguing. Each window was carefully placed to maximize the home’s connection to nature and light.

The Slice House is a comfortable family home for a small lot of 25 ft x 100 ft with a footprint of 16 ft x50 ft. The total enclosed heated area is 1400 sq ft. In addition, there is a covered carport wedged directly under the house with a convenient stair to the entry foyer. A covered deck on the south side extends the great room, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor living area.
