这是 Bild Architecture 完成的一个住宅的建筑设计,位于澳大利亚。这个名为加州梦的项目是探索改进澳大利亚郊区类型住宅的研究成果之一。建筑最初是加州平房式的类型住房,设计师将之改造为能够适应现代生活方式。

以下是设计事务所提供的项目简介:

California Dreaming is the first in a series of projects exploring adaptations of Australian suburban typologies for contemporary housing requirements. Located in an area of inner-urban Launceston originally developed with inter-war ‘California Bungalow’ type housing, the project adapts and co-ops this typology to contemporary living styles and expectations for a pair of duplex residential units.Unfashionable for many years this area of the city lay dormantafter its initial wave of development, preserving an enclave of inter-war speculative housing. However in recent years, with sudden gentrification, the area has seen a new wave of housing occupying the abundant infill opportunities. These new occupants, reflective of contemporary ways of living and ways of building sit in stark contrast with the area’s original houses.

The area’s original houses wereoften indiscriminately placed on the site; with little consideration or adaption to the sites orientation, topography or street address. The project takes the California Bungalow typology as a point of departure, progressively adapting it to the specific site conditions; sheering the floor plate vertically to minimise cut & fill, slipping it horizontally to address the street crossover and provide northern oriented private open spaces, and finally extending and wrapping the signature double-gable roof form around the building to provide maximum exposure to northern light in winter, while shielding the interior spaces from the summer sun & western light in the afternoons.

While the project formally adapts the CaliforniaBungalow type and consciously responds to its neighbours, the plan and programmatic response departs from the reference typology. CaliforniaDreaming centralises ‘core’ service program (kitchen/bathroom and laundry), pushing habitable program to the perimeter with ample access to natural light and strongconnections to the exterior. The units are mirrored in plan with the northern orientated living spaces provided with expansive retractable glazed doors, opening out onto private balcony/courtyard the northern views down the valley and across the city. The ‘core’ acts as a spatial catalyst defining the shape and size of the surrounding habitable rooms, while sliding panels alternatively separate spaces into discrete rooms, or retract to form a fluid continuous space where programs are flexible and loosely defined.

The project prioritizesminimising environmental impact during construction and ongoing environmental performance though out the life of the building. Passive solar design and natural ventilation design strategies, combined with high efficiency building insulation and double glazing, minimises energy use, while materials selections were guided by environmental life cycle thinking considerations; the building’s timber cladding was sourced from sustainable Australianplantation hardwood, utilising radial sawn milling to minimise waste.

California Dreaming is a consciously Tasmanian project responding to the emerging conditions and needs of contemporary infill housing in many of Tasmania’sinner urban areas. The project synthesizes contemporary expectations for space, light and environmental performance, with the urban presence of an established neighbourhood character. California Dreamingsits in its street scape as something familiar yet alien, an uncanny presence, distinct from both the area’s new housing and the suburbs original occupants, yet familiar and linked to both.
