Studio Bloxas Architecture Creates incredible wood house able to be shut down completely from the Outdoors for client with Cronic Sleeping Condition
Bloxas Architecture Studio was established by Anthony Clarke in 2010 and is dedicated to deliver a diverse range of projects that include residential, public and commercial design. Providing sustainable alternatives Bloxas Architecture studio creates projects with unique landscapes working collaboratively with their clients.
Their most recent project, Garden Pavilion, was properly prepared to serve a sleeping-disorder sufferer, and it contains both the complexities of the client’s condition as well as a highly activated and social environment. Number of technical measures were taken in its architecture, providing optimized passive heating and cooling, maximizing daylight levels and natural ventilation, and minimizing disruptive noise levels.
The blackened wood house is located in Melbourne and was built to curve around an olive tree garden, preserving the rugged and distinctive nature of the existing space. The goal is to create a new living space for the couple, using its northern characteristics in harmony with the natural surroundings.
Garden Pavilion by Bloxas Architecture has the appearance of an early 20th century roughcast bungalow that enables a stunning rural style within the urban context. The spiral shape, focused on the olive tree, not only provides views of the garden from all divisions, but also responds to the importance of an environmentally sustainable home.
The use of skylight windows not only allows natural lighting throughout the entire year, but also passive heating and cooling. The large glass windows are framed with steel and follow the curve of the garden-facing side enabling an authentic getaway from the everyday stress.
“This planning strategy provides a place of respite and refuge, while sharing a vista of the established garden with the main living space”
The architecture of Garden Pavilion was designed to be shut down completely or open out to the garden. In order to achieve that, Bloxas Architecture Studio created shutters that can be used to close the openings, and a corner window that can be manually sealed with industrial tarp straps.
More wooden details inhabit the interior design, like bookshelves tucked into the narrow end, sofa, door frames and a large microphone-shaped floor lamp. Two large roof lights bring more diffused northern light into the interior, one is painted white, while other is lined with wooden paneling.
