Venice House / Daly Genik Architects

first_imgPhotographs: Benny Chan/FotoworksText description provided by the architects. This house designed by Daly Genik Architects will be showcased at the upcoming Little Tokyo Design Week that we recently featured. The site, with a two bedroom main house and pied-a-terre above the garage, is a reversal of the more common relationship between main and guesthouse found in this neighborhood. The garage and apartment are at the street and the primary residence is located at the rear of the site, both units facing a lush courtyard. The main house, enthusiastically remodeled in the 1980’s in a Santa Fe-inspired vocabulary, had a single bedroom and an open loft. The clients who purchased the property wanted to update the house to accommodate their growing family and frequent in-law visits.

An 8-foot addition on the courtyard increased the building in size to 1,700 sqf and allowed for a complete reorganization of the interior spaces. Living spaces increased to a total of three bedrooms and three baths. The roof of a dank rear room was removed and an outdoor dining courtyard that opens to the kitchen and study was created. The two story façade facing the courtyard is entirely glazed, which in turn is shaded by a folding, perforated metal skin that rests on an aluminum exoskeleton.

Only these building surfaces extend into the courtyard and float above the courtyard. Primarily designed as sun shades, they provide privacy and filtered natural light into the main living spaces of the house and apartment. In addition they form the support structure for balconies that extend from the master bedroom of the main house and the apartment to allow family members to see each other across the property. In the evening these garden lanterns float above the lush courtyard.

Both buildings are passively cooled in the summertime by the metal screens, significant landscaping, and operable windows providing ventilation throughout. Domestic hot water, including radiant heating in the floors, is supplied by solar collectors on the roof of the house.Save this picture!© Benny Chan/FotoworksProject gallerySee allShow lessFrosty Chimney Park and Urban Installation / Tomasz Ostafin, Krzysztof Pydo-Bytom & …ArticlesLatest Developments for the Rio 2016 Olympic Park CompetitionArticles Share Venice House / Daly Genik ArchitectsSave this projectSaveVenice House / Daly Genik Architects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Venice House / Daly Genik Architects CopyHouses•United States Architects: Daly Genik Architects Photographs “COPY” United States Save this picture!© Benny Chan/Fotoworks+ 18 Share CopyAbout this officeDaly Genik ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on July 04, 2011Cite: “Venice House / Daly Genik Architects” 04 Jul 2011.
