Residential Garden Design in San Francisco

This is a beautiful garden design and cool. One way to enhance the beauty of the home is to attend a garden in our yard. Houses become barren and gives the impression of calm. Especially when summer comes. For this reason Lutsko Associates made a garden in an urban housing in San Francisco.

The concept of this project is an open architecture for daily life, maximizing the impact and experience of a small space. The breakthrough of this sunlight can park with ease because there is no roof in this park. Another advantage is that we can enjoy the garden from the balcony of the second level instead of the inside of the house. Design pays attention to the sensory experience of materials and planting, which contributed to the richness and beauty of the park.

This city park in the Pacific Heights district of San Francisco around a single family home. The house was designed in 1990 by noted Bay Area architecture firm EHDD under the guidance of the late Joe Esherick. When viewed from two house sites overlooking the balcony, the park is a graph of the composition of space, materials and planting. From this perspective much of San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz Island slip into the views of the city spread out below the property. This park is designed to bring a sense of urban city fabric into the site. From inside, the garden intimately experienced as a sequence of outdoor rooms, their space and design features hidden sequence and expressed as a threshold passing each other in composition.

This park is divided into a series of three enclosed garden room, each tightly defined by the architecture and / or planted edge. Various treatments translucent-edge glass, hand troweled plaster, bronze curved walls, and planting-explore the relationship between the viewer and the adjacent off-site conditions. The walls between rooms consisting of Prunus caroliniana hedge cut, fit within the framework of structural steel. Thresholds between rooms create a sense of mystery and discovery as one moves through the park.

Each room is different in shape and quality. The first room, which requires light and privacy, defined by clear glass that transmits light and reveals the subtle shape of the outer edge of the garden. edge is reinforced by a steaming Pelargonium tomentosum and cacaliifolia Salvia to bring the natural flavor and fragrance into the room otherwise constructed. Osmanthus fragrans sculptural form branched multi-wall plaster, clean end to end view this space. The second room is dominated by the most dramatic elements of the park, a large curved wall made of bronze. From the slot in the wall, water cascades into the basin cut into the pavement beneath. Placed against the wall of the adjacent buildings, water features create a sensual edge with space, quiet introspective. In the third hall, visitors got a surprise vista of the city, bay, and the Trans-America building through the open window like a translucent wall panels. reeded panel's glass-covered walls of the Beaux-Arts fence neighbors recognize pastiche of the city, and is a reference to changing the architectural style from time to time. A lemon tree, espaliered plaster wall, in line with the axial views of the garden.

Park employs a large patch of contrast material to make a bold graphic composition: limestone paving of light that shines in the fog of San Francisco is interspersed with bands of wool thyme; dark granite stone engraved with a spiral pale to generate a mosaic. Restrained planting palette, shades of green and Grey with white flowers give priority to form over color. Bold-textured foliage contrasts dramatically with the materiality of space. The combination of material selection and composition of the structure to respond, simpler forms of home distilled. Park became home to a literal extension of everyday life while still associated with adjacent urban forms. [via]

Minimalist House Design, Just an Idea, Trend, or More Than Necessary?

Minimalist house design, just an idea, trend, or more than necessary? Minimalist style is now a favorite building in the metropolis. General speaking, this model is easily found in public housing, from low-income housing to luxury housing, or in the interior design of a cafe or an office building. The first looks like a uniform, but with detail added to make people know that each home reflects the owner.

Minimalist is a mindset, work, and lifestyle. A new vantage point in viewing design as a reflection of urban lifestyle, which is usually simple, practical, dynamic, and efficient. Creation of architectural buildings, including modern minimalist house, is the choice for form of architecture, born from culture and needs. Not only follow the trend recently.

For that reason, modern minimalist house is equipped with more tangible characteristics, a simple shape and design of geometric space, strong with the empty spaces are minimalist in ornaments and furniture. Selected furniture has multiple functions to accommodate the needs of all family members. Design principle is simple enough so that the quality of design and function space available should be more fit.

But the frequently asked question that usually arises is whether a modern minimalist home should be a simple compartment or any other form? The answer is a form of minimalist modern homes do not have to follow the form of simple or simple geometric compartments. If the house that only needs a simple compartment, it means that the simple compartment is the result of a process of function space needs, not by force or follow the trend.

And then people ask whether the parameters minimalist home means a cold feeling or impression of less fresh? Minimalist form the basis of design and also for the decoration itself. Minimalist here is based on a simple and efficient. minimalist interior is the arrangement of the interior who prefer to the functional and practical. This setting is emphasized on efficient design. Straight line, plane, crossing the surface of which is always 90 degrees, and perpendicular.

Then people are worried whether this is a minimalist design will spend a lot of money or not. The answer is relative depending on the detail of the building itself. With minimalist design, the type of materials used will be effective and efficient. Use of some materials such as wood, brick, stone, glass, or steel can also appear as an individual. The dominance of a particular material will give different effects. [via]

Corner building site in the middle-class neighborhood. This site has only 2150 sq ft. The developer intended to build two small single house but after reviewing the rules of our city to realize that an apartment building is much more profitable. And we can even attach a small commercial space.

The premise of the building is to provide maximum privacy and independence for each unit. We are located at the corner commercial space is and so we separate the garage and access to both units. The building is a pile of boxes, each one on top of each other, with different size and rotation. The volume creates a series of terraces. Inner space is a "cross-connected" so that both units share all stories and a terrace. The result is a very unusual apartment building.

This project brings the concept of the Green Ecological been the trend recently. We can see the beautiful garden on the roof of this villa which briefly describes the concept of green environment.

The project is located in the oil palm plantations, in the district of Shah Alam, 15 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur. The location where the building is located is part of a satellite city master plan, which consists of housing, and other supporting facilities, named Setia Eco Park. This development brings the concept of Green Environment, in site planning, dedicated to the upper middle class market.

client brief was to create, unique modern, sustainable style of architecture without leaving the tropical aspect as a starting point. Site itself is part of an integrated mixed use master plan and housing function, called ECO PARK FAITHFUL, who brought the concept of GREEN ENVIRONMENTAL, in their design concepts, and are intended for sale to the secondary market.

Design brief comes from the client to create a residential environment that will reflect the architectural style of Asian modernity without abandoning tropical aspects as design constraints.

Derived from a client brief, we decided to play an additive form generator to create mass and, within the same functional space as well. Space in the room was analogize in pure geometric box, which consists, juxtaposed and connected to each other and the other one with "gaps" in between, which is interpreted into circulation or buffer zone, to infiltrate the natural air and by day, as much as possible.

With a vertical way, the mass was rotated and juxtaposed one perpendicular and the other to create a space between the roof garden. With this roof garden, we try to make the catch rain water to replace the soil surface covered by buildings. Also provide added value to the space at the top level, as directly from the outdoor orientation. This rotation also provides a mass of shadow effects to the lower chamber. The use of several types of textures and colors for this building, also refers to the richness and diversity of Asian architecture in general.

The use of broad canopy at the top of the building also played a dual role, as a place for solar panels, other than as a canopy. This amount of solar panels is calculated to reduce 30% of the energy consumed in this villa. [via]
