Wind Vault House by Wallflower Architecture + Design:
“As the brief was considerable, the overall form of the property required to be pushed to the envelope limits. Naturally, there are also other concerns the context and proximity of neighbouring houses, the every day sun path and the prevailing winds. Conceptually, the home is a raised reinforced concrete tube whose open ends are oriented in a standard north-south direction. On this web site, the prevailing breezes also blow in from the south, from the course of the nearby coast line. In practice, all rooms have walls that side both east or west, and front north and south. The tubular structure resists east west heat acquire thanks to the reliable mass of the reinforced concrete but encourages passive cooling by way of the open north south axis. The north and south facades are handled with timber screens and their contribution is multifold. They are privacy filters for the bedrooms and are the initial layer of glare and solar heat reduction to the spaces behind. The timber fins of the display can also be angled so as to catch a breeze or to increase privacy as and when essential.
Family members gatherings are a day-to-day occurrence, and massive celebratory functions also function regularly for the consumer. The very first storey is made to be visually expansive and uncluttered, and encourages the intermingling of space, no matter whether one particular moves by way of the garden, residing or dining. The perceived spatial boundary is not architecturally delineated in a traditional sense, but by a soldier-line of narrow polyalthia trees along the boundaries of the internet site. However, architecturally, the trees supply a degree of goal no man-created wall is capable to. It shields the house from neighbouring windows but its narrow footprint nevertheless makes it possible for sun to reach the grass, while freeing up space on the lawn for perform and events. What might not seem so clear however is that the tines of polyalthias are actually evaporative fingers, combing the air of some of its heat each and every time the wind blows. The swimming pool is positioned centrally between backyard and residing each as a focal centre and also as a central evaporative cooling surface.”
