Description by Herriot + Melhuish Structure
Herriot + Melhuish Structure labored in partnership with USA agency Marmol Radziner and Associates to develop a Californian Modernist model home redefined to take a seat in a Central Otago context.
The problem was to adapt the normal layered horizontal planes of the ‘modernist Californian pavilion’ to native planning guidelines and excessive climate situations; and naturally, benefit from the spectacular views to the north of the location. Our consumer requested intelligent detailing to ship price efficient options to those parameters.
Stepping the home throughout the positioning and working the principle roof slope parallel to the hillside permits the home to discover a area of interest within the topography. Heavy stone and plaster partitions create a backbone alongside the back of the home which anchors the construction to the land.
The design responds to the native context with cautious alternative of supplies, merging the home with the encircling panorama when considered at a distance, however retaining a way of character when met at a private scale.
