Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Located at the southern end of the beachside suburb of Cottesloe, the Optimum Resource Architects has completed an residential project of Curtin Avenue Residence. The new residence is sited on a long thin lot running east-west between two converging streets.
The eastern elevation is modest and reserved in nature, its roof form curved at both the northern and southern sides to reduce its mass in relation to its two single story neighbours.
The western elevation in contrast is much more open, featuring extensive glazing to take advantage of the magnificent views out towards the Indian Ocean and to Rottnest Island while providing generous overhangs to protect against the harshness of the summer sun. The western side of the residence has been raised above the street level to provide an appropriate level of privacy to the external decked area and ground floor living areas.
The curved form, which can be related back to previous projects by ORA in the Cottesloe area relates primarily to the local environment, curving over on the southern side to minimise overshadowing to the southern neighbour and protecting the residence from the strong south-westerly winds. A number of small openings have been provided to the southern façade to allow for natural cross ventilation and natural lighting to the southern rooms.
The North-Western walls to the upper floor are clad in a double skinned translucent grey polycarbonate that provides a soft natural light to the adjoining rooms during the day while all the time maintaining a level of privacy for both neighbour and resident.
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.
