Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
This modern architecture home is designed for James Stewart, a violinist and music patron, also a mathematician who write calculus textbooks. The architect Shim Sutcliffe designed the house as a performance space as well as a private dwelling.
The house design which described in its name, derives from the role of integrals in calculus and Stewart’s request that the design incorporate curves. The integral symbol also echoes the shape of a violin’s sound holes and the S in the client’s and architects’ last names.
The final concept for the Integral House grew out of hundreds of sketches, drawings, and models: the testing of ideas was achieved through full-scale mock-ups and reiterations.
They designed the street elevation as a relatively modest, two-story pavilion with a translucent-glass upper story floating above a wood-and-clear-glass entry level. A reflecting pool wrapping around one corner of the front reinforces the fluid geometry. From the driveway, visitors have no idea that the house sprawls over five stories or is any larger than the typical home in this affluent neighborhood.
Once inside, visitors face a living room that spreads out toward a view of the ravine and spills down a grand stair to a lower level. The two-story living room serves as a space for musical performances, with seating for up to 150 people, but also offers more intimate areas for relaxing and conversation. Shim and Sutcliffe enveloped this multifunctional space on three sides with an undulating perimeter of clear glass and oak fins.
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.
