Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Kerr Ritchie Architects have recently completed a contemporary house design in Queenstown, New Zealand. Occupying an area of 280 square meters, the family home was designed as a single fluid form that reclines into the sloping landscape on the edge of Lake Wakatipu.
The way in is through a hole punched in the middle creating a courtyard which allows visitors to enter either the family home to the north or the studio/guest wing to the south. The main house pulls away from an eastern bank, to provide courtyards sheltered from the prevailing wind and summer sun.
The roof and walls of the modern house are primarily clad in black steel. But, on another parts where the occupants move in and out of the house, to the north, south elevations and the entry, the steel is replaced with softer wood boards.
The interior is intended to have the flexibility of an institutional building. Strong concrete floors, profiled insitu concrete walls and Strandboard are softened with a shiny plastic glowing screen wall and plastic light fittings. Photography by Paul McCredie
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.
