The “Spaceship” has landed and the dust, it appears, is starting to settle
The project, which recently broke ground in Palo Alto, California, “celebrates the creative process of invention” through its sweeping metal curves, which represent the highs and lows of exploratory research and development. The tall, two-story curves “rise to represent the crescendo of the creative spark and pragmatic analysis of ideas, and descend to transition into long, horizontal bands symbolizing the implementation phase of invention.”
The main body of the house is designed on two floors. On the ground floor are the main hall (which fully opens to the outside as a terrace), kitchen and private terrace (climbing for few people) and finally, service spaces that were located on the north-east corner of the property, such as: laundry, bedroom and bathroom as well as wineries and others … upstairs are 3 bedrooms overlooking the lake and a room overlooking the hills. The master bedroom occupies the authority and hierarchy it deserves on the site. The third bedroom takes advantage of the view of the lake to the west, this radical orientation was solved through a sliding wooden lattice that helps create a flexible and ambivalent space.
The architect has outlined the perimeter that defines this type of houses and, from this new line, has created a project that is developed through two types of structures.
The house has a thermal insulation based on rock wool, which, together with the rest of the materials used, optimizes energy savings. Also, the lighting system is controlled to take full advantage of natural light.
