Leura House Design by James Stockwell Architect

October 04, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Green Home Design, Modern House Design

The Leura House is designed by James Stockwell Architect. The materials are limited in number and low embodied energy. The ‘rammed sandstone’ walls are crushed sandstone with 10% cement compacted into forms with chips of iron stone and quartz. The Leura house is sketched out in sedimentary compressed sandstone walls. It uses a Japanese method called ‘discontinuous unity’ brought to light in the 1940’s by Japanese architects Yoshizaka and Sakakura for the incomplete separation of spaces from one another. The house produces its own power and water. 20 PV panels producing .5kw each/day in Leura are installed and a 100,000lt water tank is built under the bedroom wing. The garden and landscape are most important so the journey along the edges of the building permit varying places to experience the mountain valley.

Foskett House, by Max Pritchard Architect

July 02, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Foskett House was designed by Max Pritchard Architect. The gentle curved form of the house allows it to wrap around the private courtyard, but also to open out to river views to the north. The kitchen extends out to a northern terrace, shaded by deciduous vines and enclosed by a stone planter box. The living areas are orientated to the north to maximize sun for winter heating and large folding doors permit cross ventilation to provide summer cooling. Semi circular courtyard with swimming pool and mature eucalypt, becomes the focus of this organic house of sandstone walls and cedar windows.
