Half Grounded, Half Floating Three Generation Family House

Cantilevering over the sloped Australian terrain of Melbourne, this 450 square meter three-generation family house was designed for entertaining. This sophisticated, half grounded, half floating architectural piece was named the A-G House and is part of dKO Architecture‘s portfolio. Mid-century modern architecture inspired the design and construction of this very up-to-date residence. Dark-framed windows defining the line between interior and exterior remind me of the ones seen on the Cousin-Homes in Melbourne. Dark grey walls on the facade are sandwiched between white overhangs and white-lined terraces. A shared central outdoor entertaining area is nestled between two independent living wings, flooding the interiors with natural light through glazed walls. Materials like concrete, bluestone, glass and timber were combined to shape a home defined by open interiors uniting family under a modern roof.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
