The following 2 unrestrained residential designs offer spectacular presentations that are set off by their unique roofing styles.
From Iroje Khm Architects, the GaOnJai house was designed with the client’s vision in mind of obtaining a private, but open to the landscape, space. The home was initially part of a government ran project that showcased local architects whose talents were put to work in establishing an entire town.
The striking roof is boldly displayed in black zinc plates and hovers over the concrete and stucco structure.
The house plan incorporates interesting construction applications that keep the outdoors in mind, as it is an ever present and vital part of the layout. Every detail seems to lend to another aspect of the home and a new way of seeing walls, walkways, rooms and levels.
The design culminates to the central courtyard, creating an inviting outdoor space with ample room for an onsite garden area.
Topographic concerns were addressed by being respectful of the home’s building plot, as the client intended to make smart use of the exterior, and not unnecessarily upset the environment. The home is secluded to its neighbors, but it does not seem boxed off at all. It emits a sense of openness indoors and out, and the outdoors are highlighted by the gorgeous views through the open roof.
It’s hard to compete with this unusually shaped roof.
Or at least it’s hard for the wallet to compete with one, as the plans for this unique looking residence include an extravagant price tag. Reportedly to go for approximately 30 million, this concept design from Tsontakis Architecture has a nod to nature with its manta ray shaped roof.
Dubbed Mummy Mountain, the hillside home demands some attention.
The truncated structure of the roof was likely chosen to accommodate local covenants and building regulations. Built near a mountain, height restrictions exist for new constructions, so the architect seemingly inset portions of the home into the landscape with others expanded above but with a low profile.
Boundaries for the roof’s pitch are the only thing in this house with a low profile.
These houses were built to envelop their natural outdoor surroundings, but their modern forms definitely stand out.
