Lyons House, Robin Boyd, Sydney
Dan Hill in cityofsound
(An account of a house-visit to a modernist classic, with reflections on the importance of clients who know what they want, and can express it in terms that increasingly make sense 40 years later, and the results of a Melbourne architect working in Sydney.)A couple of months ago, the Trimbles and I drove down to the south of Sydney to see the Lyons House. Designed by the great Robin Boyd in 1966, it's a wonderful house, and still inhabited by the original owner, Dr. Lyons, some 40 years on.
Infill Container Home by LWA
Preston D K in Jetson Green
We're bringing you back-to-back container home coverage here with this home on an infill lot in the eastern hills above San Francisco Bay. Designed by Leger Wanaselja Architecture, the project required three insulated containers to create a cozy, two-bedroom house. Two forty-foot containers were stacked on one side and the third was cut in the middle. The split containers were also stacked on the other side. The three containers are brought together with a large, glassy atrium that spans both the first and second floors. It's a simple design that shows what's possible with innovative home construction. Make sure to check out the construction images, too.
