Boat Harbour Holiday Home
1 - Concept
The concept that resumes Boat Harbour intervention its based in a narrative where the site constraints/specificities and the client’s needs/desires come together in a hole strategic approach.
This narrative tells the story of a needs expressed by the building. The need to show the entrance dictates the circulation path advance. The need for searching for other views dictates the walkin wardrobe rotation. The need for natural ventilation dictates the roof and south windows formality.
So this narrative is a story full of hapenings that strategically ponctuates the building placement.
Functional needs dictates de building strategic conception that born from a rational principle, where technical/water areas, and living areas are separated by a circulation path , but unified in the interior.
This rational construction strategy its enlarged to the hole building conception who intends to benefit from the site specificities.
On the other hand this beautiful site carries the perfect issues to build a dream house where nature and construction come together in a unique concept.
From the vertical and organic influence of the trees and the horizon line born the concept that dictates the building formality.
2 - Site placement
The building is placed oriented North to benefit the beautiful view from all interior spaces , confortable outdoor spaces protected from the wind, and receive the maximum sun light.
So North window are larger and set back so in the summer be protected and in the winter receive the sun light and the South elevated windows placement aims to ensure natural ventilation of the spaces by air movment convection.
3 - Functional distribution
As the result of the functional strategic placement , parking areas , including helipad , are close to the propertie entrance .
The studio was understood as a place for fun and gathering so its separated from the main house together with the garage that balances through the landscape. Its a multifunctional open space with amovible beds.
As said before living/dinner room and bedrooms are in the north side (warm) of the circulation path , and the kitchen , laundry and butlers pantry from the south side (cold).
All spaces have direct view over the landscpae (excluding the butlers pantry and the laundry).
4 - Construction strategy
The building construction system is composed by a concrete slab who protects the buildind from the water and a wodden construction system in the walls and roof . The circulation path and the helipad are built in concrete.
