Bruns_Architecture_bluff_01
Designed to provide the owners with a quiet retreat amidst the forested Wisconsin landscape, Bluff House rises from the gently sloping terrain of its wooded site along the crown of a 30-mile long bluff range. A former logging road carves through the rhythmic woodland providing access to the house. As the home’s intersecting volumes slowly emerge from the dense forest, visitors are welcomed by the legibility of simple, diagrammatic geometry and the rustic warmth of natural materials.

While developing the design of this house, Rockefeller Partners worked very closely with their clients, a couple that had switched eight houses in ten years, moving where it was convenient for work, but never finding the perfect location to create a real home. They now had two small children and needed a property where they could work, play and grow as a family. When they found a 3.14-acre lot in Mandeville Canyon with over 200 mature trees and expansive views of the city and ocean beyond, they knew they had found the ideal environment.

Pitman_Tozer_Gap_House_01


Winner of the 2009 Manser Medal, the Gap House is a narrow new-build terraced London townhouse, designed by Pitman Tozer.



The house, which is sited on a plot only 2.3m wide within a conservation area in West London, proves that sustainable architecture is achievable without compromise on the tightest of urban sites.

The house incorporates a number of green strategies including passive solar gain, high levels of insulation, a ground coupled heat pump and rainwater harvesting to minimize its carbon footprint. It achieves all of this without compromising design.

Discreetly open towards the street, the house is accessed by crossing over a fountain from which a huge oak tree emerges, impressive both for its size and its beauty. Once on the porch, a grand mural-like door -constructed of marble, wood and steel- welcomes the visitor.
