Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Architect Martin R. Hewitt recently delivered us one of his latest project on home designing. This contemporary house in London was designed for his client whom a retired professor with his wife and completed three years ago.
The two storey house offers an open living concept described with the the use of interior glass walls that connect the view between living room, dining room, and the kitchen. Warm interior atmosphere is built by applying a wood parquet material on most floor surfaces
To get the maximum width of internal space on the narrow urban site external walls are of minimum thickness but having the maximum ecological benefits. A steel frame gives the structural support to the building. Timber stud infil external walls are packed with lightweight insulation and finished with a special flexible render. The roof is also packed with lightweight insulation and finished with natural clay tiles.
The steel frame also allows interconnecting internal spaces with the minimum of dividing walls. Freestanding bookcases are used to separate living spaces. Timber floors and other natural material are used throughout. The central octagonal, atrium hall is open up to the main roof with an electrically operated, self cleaning rooflight over.
Circular timber windows from all the upper rooms look into the atrium and allow natural ventilation up through the rooflight. Heating is by condensing gas boiler to underfloor heating throughout. Rainwater from the roof is collected in underground tanks and reused.
With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
