SHELL HOUSE : FENNELL RESIDENCE Fennel residenceThe Fennell residence, as a floating house, is located in Portland, Oregon. presented a unique opportunityfor design. The imaginative use of curved glue lam beams evoke the poetry of the ripples and contours of ariver. The expansive glass facade embraces the river and frames the sunset, and one accesses the deck viaan expansive sliding glass door. A master bedroom sits over a study and looks out over the living diningarea and out to the river beyond. The curvilinear forms create special differentiation that enhance theexperience of time as light plays through the daily and seasonal changes. Very unique design is made by an architect named Robert Harvey Oshatz this house almost 90% pure made of wood, if we look at houses This from the front shaped like a drop of water curved glass accent placement is dominating the front of this unique house, but if you see the future we will see incredible shape, elevation which resembles a stack of strange shapes from pieces of shell pieces made from wood , and if we look into this house Side view warm and comfortable impression that radiates from all theinterior is made of wood will feel very, very strong impression that homey feel when we went intothe house unique is the work of Shell House There’s something so romantic about living waterside. site Waking up to a dramatic view, whether from the banks of a lake, ocean, river, or even a tiny brook, always seems to have a soothing effect on the soul. One way to amp up the romance is to take the dwelling off the shore and put it right plan onto the water, as Portland, Oregon-based architect Robert Oshatz did for his clients. The professional couple, which spends most of their time in downtown Portland, had purchased a mooring on the east side of the Willamette River, an active commercial and recreational body of water. They turned to Oshatz, known for his curvaceous, swooping architecture, to create a floating house as their weekend and summer retreat…. There’s something so romantic about living waterside.

most of their time in downtown Portland, had purchased a mooring on the east side of the Willamette River, an active commercial and recreational body of water. They turned to Oshatz, known for his curvaceous, swooping architecture, to create a floating house as their weekend and summer retreat. The couple was familiar with Oshatz’s work, so they knew their house would be one of a kind. For this house, in addition to addressing the programmatic requirements, Oshatz had the challenge of building a house that was sturdy yet Corner In able to float, and he had to deal with the fact that active construction on the Willamette is prohibited (the home had to bebuilt on the connected Columbia River, then pulled by barge to its mooring onthe Willamette). Also, moorings on either side were less than 10 feet away,the house had to provide privacy despite the close proximity to neighborsThe clients are fans of loft-style living, and needed no more than a masterbedroom, a study, guest bed and bath, and kitchen and living areas. With the floor plan and program in place, Oshatz found inspiration in theripples of the river, and used Douglas fir glulam (glue laminated timber)beams to form the house’s curving arcs. Cedar shingles clad the eastern, Master Bedroom northern, and southern exposures, while the western side opens up to the river with floor- Living Room to-ceiling glass sliding doors with curved glass windows above. The resulting interior gives the feeling of being inside a seashell. The kitchen, open living room with fireplace, and guest bedroom are all on the “ground” floor, with a stairway leading up to the master-bedroom loft space. Built-in cabinets and storage elements (of American cherry) keep furniture to a minimum, while Brazilian cherry floors and stairs contribute to the house’s warm atmosphere. The deck is mahogany, while the roof and ceiling beams are Douglas fir. Living room to dining Stainless-steel stair railings contrast with the wood inside, while copper shingles provide the contrast on curved, vaulted areas on the exterior of house.For Oshatz, creating a home that floats was just one of the project’s challenges. To make the house buoyantyet stable, Oshatz created a 34 by 80-foot float made up of Douglas fir logs. Steel I-beams were then placedcrosswise, set 6.5 feet on center, because that was the spacing Oshatz decided on for the curved glulambeams. But all experiences are worth having, and Oshatz says he’s lucky enough to be able to visit the house Bedroom closetoften.

The house comprises a series of distinct, yet Exterior view interlocking rectilinear volumes conjoined by a Plan transparent longitudinal axis. Positive volumes arebalanced a top negative creating a heightened tension and intrigue.

CHARCOAL HOUSE The Architect of this house is Reza Aliabadi which is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada of area about 2,100 sq. ft. Charcoal House, situated in Pape and Danforth neighborhood in Toronto, Ontario, is deceivingly presenting a raucous box. The randomly patterned square windows on its facade and the hidden entrance entrance door at the corner of the building are elements that not only make it difficult difficult to associate the building, but they also trick the eye to an extend where the scale of the house is storted and one might not be able to guess the number of floors inside Although the monolithic facade, the black brick , states an asperous architectFront view architecture, the airy spaces within the black box reveals the true identity of its functional spaces. The house as the architect describes, resembles a “coconut” which is dark and hard on the outside, white and delicious on the inside. Interior While it’s successful attempts to minimize physical connection to the front street creates a bizarre solitude for the such as the front door, which is carefully hidden inside an exterior corridor and melts into the facade around the corner of the building- this wood-framed single-family house of about 2,100 square feet suddenly transforms into a dynamic living space with a careful attention to openings and natural lights in each room, and once again Deceive one’s immediate impression Kitchen of disengagement from the. outside by creating unexpected and glorious openings to the outside. The Charcoal House sits on a small lot with a narrow Living room plan. It is not a spacious house to live in, but an avant- garde mind that seeks an alternative living space is perhaps looking for a change in effects. A modern house is about a modern living style, and the Charcoal House is an attempt to provide that chance for Torontonians.
