Whale Beach House is located in the south-east fold of a steep, thickly vegetated hillside, below a towering escarpment, and looks out along the beach to Careel Head. The siting of the house is derived from a pragmatic mapping of adjacent building alignments, northpoint, neighbour’s viewlines and required setbacks. These invisible lines establish the oblique geometries that characterise the plan, reminiscent of Coderch’s Casa Ugalde in Spain. Challenged by overshadowing from the escarpment the mass of the building is located as close to the street as possible, also giving space to the large boulders, rare trees and rainforest preserved at the rear. The house is a multi-generational family weekender organised over three levels that terrace with the slope – children and grandparents on the lower level, main living areas on the mid level and parents ‘secret’ timber cabin on top. The plan is stratified, each level deliberately distinct from the other with internal stairs that are virtually hidden. Whilst the ceiling of each level is constant, the floors are stepped or ‘topographic’.

Each room is considered almost autonomously, coordinated with the site and view. The experience of the house is cinematic as the view partitioned so that it becomes particular to each room – the horizon from the kitchen, the headland from the living room, the escarpment from the main entry, the rainforest at the back door. An array of opening types assists the orchestration – solid timber shutters that reveal the view when open, sashes that completely disappear, windows that capture the view within a sheet of fixed glass, strategic skylights for light without view. These strategies generate a spatial richness experienced as ‘surprise’. Save this picture!Like its neighbours the house is elevated above the street, providing a degree of privacy. It is strongly articulated with upper levels clad in recycled timber that will darken in time to camouflage against the backdrop of the scarp. A void through the centre of the lower masonry level creates a view through to the garden. The native landscape is metaphorically drawn through this void connecting with neighbouring gardens across front. Careful collaboration between the landscape architect, hydraulic engineer, ecologist and builder allowed the waterway on the north-east side of the building to be restored, resisting to council’s attempts to create a stormwater easement and instead enriching the landscape setting. The house and landscape are integral. Outdoor living spaces correspond with each level of the house and are equally varied. The project demonstrates a holistic approach to sustainability – solar orientation, natural light, ventilation, efficient internal heating, materials choices, water collection, locally indigenous plantings and compact pool. The steeply sloping site was expensive to build on and the stormwater issues costly to resolve. The refined building detailing and landscaping were labour intensive, but felt by all parties to deliver enduring benefit.Project gallerySee allShow lessShowroom and Leisure Center / Manuelle Gautrand ArchitectureArticlesBibliosphere / Greeen!

Sitting within one of the most prestigious residential areas in Metro Manila, Cuenca House is perched on a 535 sqm site in Ayala Alabang Village. The land, once belonging to a classic ‘White House’ commonly found in the area, was split from an original plot spanning 1600 sqm which the former owner divided into three. The new home occupies the middle plot, where the client envisioned a 2-story bungalow complete with a basement and swimming pool.Save this picture!Courtesy of ONG&ONGSituated slightly off a round-about, the new house is raised about 1.5m above street level. The basement area, or lower first floor in local parlance, was conceptualized to be an entertainment area. This section also houses a study room, which the client requested in order to use as a home office. The upper 1st floor contains the dining room and main living room. Intended as a space for the lady of the house to host and entertain guests, it boasts enchanting views of the swimming pool and outdoor pavilion.Save this picture!Lower First Floor PlanPrivate spaces within Cuenca House have been placed on the 2nd floor, which includes the master bedroom, along with 3 additional bedrooms all designed with ensuite bathrooms. There is also an additional guest bedroom placed within the upper 1st floor, designed to provide an easy option to accommodate relatives and close friends of the family. To fully capitalize on the new property’s wonderful location, architects positioned Cuenca House in a manner that would seclude it from neighboring homes.Save this picture!Courtesy of ONG&ONGThe client desired a house that would be distinctive from the Spanish-styled villas typical to the neighborhood, leading architects to create a new residence that was inspired by an Asian lantern concept. Imagined as a beacon or a lighthouse within the neighborhood, the new home features a top floor structure that acts as a lamp frame, where seamless wall-to-wall glass works to create shade – making the house a true guiding light within its locale. Save this picture!Courtesy of ONG&ONGProject gallerySee allShow lessThis Crowdsourced and Crowdfunded Pavilion in Ukraine Embodies the Collaborative SpiritArchitecture NewsShanghai Hecheng Renovation / Stefano Boeri Architetti ChinaSelected Projects Share Area:  600 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Cuenca House / ONG&ONG Pte LtdSave this projectSaveCuenca House / ONG&ONG Pte Ltdlast_img read more
