Sustainable Residence South Coast In Australia
Sustainable Residence
A Sustainable Residence has designed mainly constructed of wood by Indyk Architects and is located in Coalcliff, Australia, named south coast residence.
Sustainable home design is an alternative way to make a house more friendly to the natural environment. There are many advantages people might inspire of this concept approach. Many green idea are applied into this contemporary home both active energy technologies and passive technologies. Improving the house more environmental friendly, it is also installed technologies provide energy element needs, rainwater collection, photovoltaic panels, air ventilation system might increase comfort inside. These sustainable approach is able to increase value of home which reflects awareness of occupants to environmental sustainability.

South Coast Residence by Indyk Architects:

"The house grew out of its formidable site, inspired by the Illawarra Escarpment to the far west and north, and to its east the tidal ocean rock shelf and ocean beyond. Our aim was to create a ‘safe harbour’ for living; to borrow and imbed the ocean-scape within the house views and to make a home of beauty and craftsmanship.
The clients have a love for boats, concrete and all things Japanese. Their new house reads from the street as a timber house, massed as a series of boxes in reference to the coastal shacks that previously stood in the street. The ‘mass’ speaks to adjoining neighbours in height & scale. On the interior a concrete house is revealed.
The client’s program called for a house for two people, to accommodate regular visits from grown children, grand children & elderly parents. A house, with the enjoyment of ‘making and eating food’ at its centre. A house, that would creatively display the client’s art and pottery collection. A house, that environmentally responded to its location.
The House divides into three staggered floor levels relating to the landform it sits upon, the height restrictions that protect neighbour’s views behind and its own internal views out to the ocean. The largest floor level is the ‘public’ ground floor space with cooking, eating, lounge space, guest bathroom and bedroom. There is the ‘private’ first floor mezzanine with main bedroom, bathing and study perch, that overlooks the main living space below. The level that links the house with the ocean, is the lower ground floor, with an additional guest room that doubles as a Pilates space, and a covered pottery work terrace that opens to a western terraced vegetable garden and pond, and to the eastern coastal garden and ocean.
Arrival into the house, is through the northern breezeway that links all levels of the house externally. A mosquito screened ‘lung’ of the house, it allows the inner core to open up, extending areas and views. Its recycled ‘post and beam’ Spotted gum hardwood structure, is a counterpoint to the concrete ‘post and beam’ inner structure. This system allows great flexibility between inside and outside and between internal spaces.
The house site has its long section facing north, stimulating an architectural response of ‘partnered’ indoor-outdoor rooms. At main ground floor level, the kitchen opens to a sheltered central courtyard, which then connects to a terraced vegetable herb garden facing north east, protected from southerly winds. The lounge area, four steps above the ground floor level, opens to its north, into a large roofed porch that can house 20 people around a family table. This porch has a northern coastal view of disappearing headlands and a panoramic ocean horizon view to the east, and looking downwards a spectacular detailed view of the rock platform below.
In this house the landscape, environmental, structural and lighting disciplines were critically linked. A work of architecture must integrate disciplines to create a crafted whole.

The Coalciff house was designed to meet a sustainable outcome. It is thermally appropriate, well sealed from Southerly winds, able to recycle its collected rainwater, and to generate a base module of electricity. The clients’ commitment to sustainability included the installation of 6KW photovoltaic cells, equivalent to a third of the clients usage. The electricity generated is circulated into the grid. Solar heating with gas boosting provides for the hot water supply. Glazing is a mixture of double glazed and Low E glazing solutions. Rainwater is collected and stored at basement level in a 7500lt tank, and recycled to serve all toilet cisterns and garden irrigation.
The house is a post and beam structure of concrete internally and externally of recycled hardwood. Its southern elevation is of concrete block, with cavity and internal concrete wall panels. Its west and northern elevations are reverse block veneer.
Concrete internal walls allow for additional thermal mass and create the neutral background for display of the client’s art collection. The external recycled Spotted gum cladding creates a link to the coastal house detailing of the past and present.
The structural floors are 40mpa concrete and work as a thermal mass absorbing eastern and northern sunshine that penetrates the interior. The ‘lung’ of the house, which also links externally the levels of the house, is a northern breezeway screen structure, allowing cross ventilation through a screened façade. Additional cross ventilation occurs east and west with high level louvres, circulating the warm air at ceiling level.
The architectural language of an exposed structural system with a restrained palette of materials has created a more singular approach to materials and a limited radius of sourcing. Concrete and concrete blocks were sourced locally. Recycled timber has been delivered from the north coast while all joinery was made locally."

Waverley Residence Sydney
Waverley Residence Sydney
Energy is important key that must be an object interested in concept and designing a house, not only elegance and good looking but also health - such as air flow, light supply - ought to effect its own comfort. Anderson Architecture has designed Waverley Residence where is laid in Waverley, a suburb region of Sydney, Australia. This contemporary house design determines and applies the house energy needs, one of them is passive solar using. See inside the house, the elegant modern interior is arranged and combined to passive solar technique, ant thermal modeling.
Waverley Residence by AndersonArchitecture:
“This project is our most thermally efficient house to date, developed through the use of in house computerized thermal modeling.

The house requires very little heating or cooling, utilizing passive solar techniques, internal thermal mass and natural ventilation to maintain a comfortable, healthy indoor environment.

A challenging aspect, with excessive western exposure and a large existing building to the north, helped define the lofty roof forms which capture northern light.
A run down weatherboard house in Waverley, with a large neighbour immediately to the north, seems an unlikely starting point for contemporary family home featuring exemplar environmental credentials. This however was the brief from the clients who requested a warm and modern 4 bedroom house with a strong connection to the outdoors and minimal reliance on artificial heating, cooling and lighting.
The project was conceived from the outset with sustainability at the core of the design, despite site restrictions which encouraged creative solutions to meet performance goals. Natural materials and finishes feature extensively to balance and harmonise with the technical and mineral elements required by contemporary standards for a completely modern and integrated sustainable design outcome.
Extensive computer modelling was used to confirm principles and develop the passive solar design, resulting in an 8 star certification. This modelling highlighted the limitations imposed by a 3 storey northern neighbour on passive solar potential, and led to a C-Bus controlled active design, featuring operable shading, ventilation, day-lighting and heating/cooling elements regulated by numerous internal and external temperature, rain, light and wind sensors.
A holistic approach integrated elements such as external shading, operable roof, thermal mass/structural walls, exposed concrete floor, natural materials and shade planting into the overall design concept resulting in many items performing multiple tasks to further reduce total material consumption while reinforcing design principles.
Rainwater storage, onsite stormwater detention and near complete site permeability greatly reduced the properties impact on the natural hydrological cycle while supplying the house with much of its water needs. Self sufficiency is enhanced with an inbuilt capacity for grid connected solar PV array and a solar water heating system for domestic water supply and hydronic floor heating.
The end result showcases innovative uses of materials, products and technologies to meet an ambitious design brief and provide an exemplary sustainable residential dwelling, built using a philosophy of passive and active design theory which borrows heavily from both traditional and contemporary technological principles, expanding the potential of existing sites and the future of sustainability in residential architecture.”

Modern House Renovation in Australia

Modern House Renovation in Australia
Modern House Renovation in AustraliaRenovation is a way to make an existing house different about facade, function, comfort or any reasons. David Barr Architect has done a renovation for Westbury Crescent Residence where is located in Perth, Australia. The renovation project aim to make the home modern and sustainable, one of approach is to minimize extravagance by reusing the existing structure and element.

Westbury Crescent Residence by David Barr Architect:

 A 65 square metre alterations and addition to the rear of an existing Federation brick and tile house which aims to extend the perceptual space of the project. Daylight is funneled deep from the north, morning light reflected in from the east, filtered zenithal light washed down from above and ambient light scooped inwards from the south.

These same apertures capture visual moments from both the adjacent and surrounding site through a large northern glazed and screen sliding wall, a considered eastern slither and a southern clerestory window projected beyond the buildings edge.

The project is formally manipulated to sculpt atmospheric and functional light into designedspaces thus turning an originally introverted residence inside-out.

The project is located near the Swan River in the southern suburb of Bicton. It is a small alterations and additions, that replaced a derelict, lean-to at the rear of an existing Federation brick and tile house.

In the east by an attached neighboring dwelling with an irregular eastern boundary, a 6m high boundary parapet wall to the north and shared access right of way to the south. The project therefore sought to extend perceptual space through the considered placement of apertures capturing visual moments far beyond the prescribed site boundary.
Interior Modern House Renovation
The external and internal form of the new work was manipulated to sculpt atmospheric and functional light into crafted spaces, thus turning the originally introverted residence inside-out. One enters, through a small light filled aperture located at the end of the generously volumed hallway of the existing residence.

A large northern glazed & screened sliding wall, a considered eastern slither, filtered zenithal light and a southern clearstory window projected beyond the buildings edge.
Bath design Modern House Renovation in Australia
The character and memory of the existing cottage are maintained as the primary streetscape. Only subtle hints of the new addition are revealed between interstitial spaces when viewed from the streets edge.

From the link space, day to day living spills onto the outdoor decks & steps. Therefore neighbourly interaction is encouraged in side yards not concealed in private backyards. The new built form has strong connections to the existing site and house, whereby the surrounding context directly influences the form of the building and the position & sizes of the resulting apertures.

The neighbouring parapet wall to the northern boundary required an elevated light scoop to provide for winter sun. The fire rated boundary wall construction to the east, encouraged zenithal light to filter into the laundry space whilst a large clearstory southern window in bathroom provides privacy from the adjacent neighbouring properties.

The originally narrow termite ridden lean-to, with its poorly located toilet and adjacent disused dining space, was demolished and replaced with a isolated laundry, bathroom and a functional dining / kitchen space which has became heart of the house.

The considered placement of program not only provides strong spatial connections between the old and new but also activates previously under utilised spaces both inside and beyond.

The architecture of the project is not found in quantitative square metre assessments but in the experiential qualities, which pervade each space. A new link set perpendicular to the existing hall binds new spaces to the existing residences and intertwines adjoining programmatic functions.

This circulation space is economically set within the dimensions of adjoining areas whilst a clear counterpoint between old and new is maintained via a low ceiling and the subsequent compression of overhead volume.

The bathroom and laundry are masked physically and visually through operable door panels. However there still remains the attempt to provide delightful, naturally Lit sculpted spaces within.

The detailing of a simple external form, clad in a low cost corrugated skin, provided the opportunity for a greater emphasis to be placed on the materiality and manipulation of interior experience.

The small project works within 65sqm of contained built footprint but ultimately activates 150sqm of previously unused surface. Not only were new outlooks provided beyond the definable limits of the project but the design also allows a new and immediate experience of place previously not offered by the old home.

Through the considered crafting of natural light all spaces remain well lit throughout the day without the requirement for artificial lighting. When night prevails, all light fittings are low energy LED.

A large sliding screen to the north, covered with stretched sail-shade fabric is operated to regulate sunlight & ventilation as well as provide privacy and a surface for movie projections.

Sustainability was sought not through complex technical solutions but through the original decision to retain the majority of the original family home.

The scheme proposed a reworking of the existing 2×1 into a 3×2 configuration, rather than a tabula rasa approach. During the course of construction 70% of waste materials were recycled through a waste management company.

The selection of a light coloured roof and wall cladding aimed to minimise solar absorption. This was initially a variation to council regulations due to it being deemed a highly reflective material. With this project as a contributing precedent the council are now undertaking the process of amending their town-planning scheme to allow for the use of these efficient building skins.

The clients provided a clear direction for their aspirations of both physical and visual engagement within the building, whilst the builders openness to refinement aided the precise rafting of such experiences.

We therefore see the project team as consisting of the client, architect and builder intertwining knowledge in the collective pursuit of an architectural resolution.
