Located in Bainbridge Island, Washington much of the Dorsey Residence is hidden behind a two-story concrete face, however its interior spaces reflect a different experience of warmth, light, and openness. Architects Coates Design created an 18-inch concrete wall that forms two sides of the home’s exterior. These walls provide a poignant counterpoint to the warm wooden and copper box that rests at a slight angle to take full advantage of the site’s water and mountain views. The concrete exterior wall and exposed concrete within the home reduce energy costs by serving as a thermal mass that naturally cools the home in the summer and holds warmth in the winter.Save this picture!sectionEach room within the home was carefully designed to take advantage of views, provide comfort to the occupants, and an appealing style. With only a small buildable area available on the site, the home was designed to maximize the footprint through the use of vertical space which also takes advantage of the spectacular views of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains to the West. The close proximity to the street is softened by native landscaping and a stone gabion retaining wall. The back facade of the home has an abundance of windows, which illuminate the interior livable space, maximizing the spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains and the water. The main living opens out onto a large deck that cantilevers from the home’s structure, providing a seamless connection from inside to out.Save this picture!Courtesy of Coates DesignThe kitchen offers a beautifully crafted bar designed with caramelized bamboo, gloss laminate, and a three-way mitre corner. Visually hidden in custom built cabinetry in the pantry next to the kitchen are the refrigerator, washer and dryer, and wine cooler which save space and provide a clutter-free kitchen.Save this picture!floor plansThe interior of the home is well-lit, with clear glazing making up nearly all of its view to the backyard and Puget Sound. The stairs, lit by a large skylight above, are made of customized blackened steel and the wood was milled from a tree previously located on the property. With 12-foot-tall ceilings, the three-story home leaves an indelible sensation of openness and inspiration with all who visit.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Ark / RemistudioArticlesAD Round Up: Best from Flickr Part XXIXArticles Share CopyAbout this officeCoates Design: Architecture + Interiors | Seattle ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBainbridge IslandSustainabilityHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 14, 2011Cite: “Dorsey Residence / Coates Design: Architecture + Interiors | Seattle Architects” 14 Jan 2011.

Text description provided by the architects. Located in the town of Shikaoi-cho in Hokkaido, this house was built for a husband and wife couple and their child on the same plot of land as their parents’ house. Although the space that divides the house from the neighboring building is unusually large – almost inconceivably so for an urban downtown setting – the site does not offer a good, unobstructed view of the vast natural expanse that surrounds the property.

Save this picture!Floor PlanThis partially split-level house consists of approximately 1.5 layers (for a total height of 4100mm). The large porch space, which is continuous with the entrance hall, functions as a kind of buffer zone dividing the house from the outdoors, offering its inhabitants a gentle, gradual transition towards the interior. Save this picture!We felt that certain adjustments were necessary to prevent this sort of single-roomed space from creating a monotonous impression. Although the living, dining and kitchen area is located along the south-facing side of the house, it is also situated uncomfortably close to the street that runs just alongside the building. As such, we decide to punctuate the wall with a scattered assortment of windows in various shapes and sizes instead of creating a single, large window. These openings offer the inhabitants multiple functions and meanings – varied glimpses of the sky through each window, a momentary peek at the landscape outside, or the ornamental touches that adorn the storage shelves. Save this picture!Wooden louvers were installed over the large open windows facing east-west not in order to cut the building off from its exterior, but rather to create a loose sense of connection to the outside.

This house is located just north of the Victorian border about 30 minutes west of Albury in rural New South Wales. In the tiny town of Splitters Creek House, the site is approximately 3.6 hectares of grassed and woodland. On a very steep block the house is nestled into the hillside, in the location of the clients’ favourite picnic spot. Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseThe clients wanted a family home with overlapping spaces, where multiple activities could occur simultaneously but in connection with each other. This strategy assisted with the response to the sloping site, and generated a floor plan of four interlocking split-levels. The house responds directly to the views around the site with large expansive views from the meals and living areas and more private intimate views from the bedrooms.

A large open plan room which comprises a kitchen, a dining space with a built in banquette seat.

The change of level between these spaces (approx. 1.2m) is mediated by a timber and white acrylic storage compartments that are fixed to tall timber posts.

In order to build a house the client has bought the last empty plot at the Ploče quarter in Dubrovnik. The steep site is of irregular shape, and it was divided with a road by the change in land zoning plans. The house is set on top of the plot with a wonderful view of the Old City and Lokrum Island, while the lower part is intended for a great and lush garden. Save this picture!© Damir Fabijanić The project task was to design a house for parents and their adult children with their families. Therefore the plot contains two objects. One, a two storey object for parents, and the other, made up of two apartments for the children and their families. In this way, three residential units were formed. A shared outdoor space is inserted between the two houses – a terrace designed for socializing and family gatherings that connects instead of separating them. The pool is in front of the parents’ house, sunken under the terrace level so it does not block the view from the living room. The garage spaces are located right next to the road and hidden from view by the slope of the plot.Save this picture!© Damir FabijanićOne of the main house features is the white facade constructed from local stone from the quarry Visočani, cut into 8x120cm “sections”. The façade whiteness is underlined by slits of large continuous glass which provide wonderful views of the city to all living areas and bedrooms, while the bathrooms and kitchen are located in the interior of the house. The only one that deviates from this rule is the parents’ luxurious bathroom on the first floor which also overlooks the city and Lokrum through a large glass wall. The smaller house is pulled out towards the garden area to allow greater privacy, and the children’s house façade is broken to ensure more privacy to the sleeping and living areas.Save this picture!© Damir FabijanićA simple combination of materials is complemented by natural wood pergola beams connecting the two houses. The natural wood is also used as a floor covering and for the garage door panels. Wooden furniture in all three units is custom made to maximize the space and underline minimalism in colors and materials.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAre LEED Skyscrapers Our Biggest Energy Hogs?Architecture NewsIs NYC “Landmarking Away” Its Future?Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/408292/house-u-3lhd Clipboard Architects: 3LHD Area Area of this architecture project 2012 CopyAbout this office3LHDOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDubrovnikHousesCroatiaPublished on July 31, 2013Cite: “House U / 3LHD” 31 Jul 2013.
