HOUSE II VERSION A:
New York, 2011
House II A is a private commission for a house in
Southampton, New York. The house is integrated by three areas
typologically classified in three distinct and separate areas with
independent access and independent landscape relationships. Each
part of the landscape, the site becomes active by the use of each of
these independent private uses which include a master suite, a guest
pavilion and a common living room area suspended above the ground.
Each house area is independent but simultaneously integrated to the
rest of the house and the landscape through interior and exterior
intermediate areas that re-qualify the interiority of each part of
the house, adding dynamism and multi-directional relationships to
the house and its areas. Each independently programmatic area
relates differently to the landscape creating many different areas
with intermediate landscapes that offer several transition areas.
Conceptually, house II A integrates multiple
architectural typologies within an in:formed layered topology. House
II A develops multiple topological displacements layering information
parametrically, combining different source codes through multiple interfaces
that overcome Cartesian determination.
House II displaces multiple typologies within a unifying continuous topology.
