PROJECTAs a result to the sites unique characteristics, the architectural concept arises from the indoor-outdoor interaction for this single family home that is set with open views in a complex topography.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe design is a synthesis of spaces joint through patios emphasizing the connectivity with the outdoor space. The complexity of heights gets resolved by locating the garage below the main volume to compensate the grading. This main volume houses the public area, 2 main areas that are connected through an entry patio and takes advantage of the main views and orientations. The private area and future expansions follow the same design logic of connections with the outdoor space. Through this open spaces, every room gets northern light.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSUSTAINABILITYThe suitable orientation of the house is not the only aspect considered for good temperature conditioning. A mixed construction system including concrete, metal framing hardware and 6 cm polyurethane foam rubber with air chamber; also aid to the conditioning of the place. Awnings and sliding vertical sunshades generate a microclimate that retains the heat or cold air. Rainwater is collected through a series of gutters and stored to be reused for landscape.Save this picture!PlanMATERIALSThe intention was to utilize low maintenance materials that would also have a lower impact to the site. Exposed concrete and oxidized metals are the main actors, with their unique characteristics of changing textures and coloring through time.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow lessTransborder Studio Wins Competition to Renovate Oslo Dairy Factory into New Agricult…Unbuilt ProjectModelo Empowers Collaboration and Presentation for ArchitectsMisc Share Houses “COPY” Area: 149 m² Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794636/ls-house-gaston-sironi Clipboard Projects Argentina “COPY” LS House / Gastón Sironi LS House / Gastón SironiSave this projectSaveLS House / Gastón Sironi CopyAbout this officeGastón SironiOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMendiolazaArgentinaPublished on September 06, 2016Cite: “LS House / Gastón Sironi” [Vivienda L.S. / Gastón Sironi] 06 Sep 2016.

The Bolgoda house was built on an elevated, fan shaped land facing the lake. There was a pre-existing old house on the elevated land, and the project scope was to retain this house as the back end, and construct a new house that straddled the edge of the cliff taking-in the breathtaking panoramic views around.Save this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorMost walls and columns are constructed using board formed concrete, where the grain of the wood is retained in the cast concrete. Matte black aluminum full-height glass doors open up creating vast open spaces that take in the views and also let in the tropical greenery. The design consists of a lot of linear lines, from the ½ inch board formwork, to textured cut tiles, ½ inch timber baton on the ceilings, and steel vertical lines. Furniture and décor were custom designed by Lalin and made especially for the Bolgoda House.Save this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardThis includes the ‘Estate Chair’ made with stainless steel wire frame body and a leather upholstered seat, the credenzas, made with coconut wood in an opposing chevron pattern. Décor elements like stainless steel abstract cubes, venetian glass orbs, chrome lights were used to accentuate the raw stylized feel. Most doors are clad in oxidized copper squares which were cut from discarded copper sheets, and oxidized in-house. Large circular drum window seats made from steel with glass doors are features in the central pond and in the designers studio.Save this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardThe circular pattern continues with circular skylights that bring in light to the living spaces and rooms. The main deck features a circular sunken seat built from fiberglass and suspended off the edge of the deck, giving it’s occupants a feeling of floating above the pool and lawn below. The Designer’s studio is a tapering cube that sits cantilevered 20 feet off the rooftop over the central pond. The yellow spiral staircase acts as an ascending library on it’s reverse side. There is a central courtyard pond that has a large green wall and waterfall. The bedroom has it’s own secluded view of the lake, and is fronted by an infinity lap pool, hot tub and private deck. The master bathroom has the lake view in front and a private garden on it’s side. To achieve the desired finishes, a construction manual was created on how to achieve the board formed concrete finish.Save this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardThis technique is not one that is often practiced in Sri Lanka, and therefore required a few test runs and do-overs. All of the wall finishes were custom created like textured tiles that were cut into strips to form thin vertical tiles. The master bathroom features hexagonal and strip Carrara marble tiles. While the desired shaped tiles were not available in the country, these shapes were cut with high pressure water jets from large Carrara marble tiles.Save this picture!Elevation – FrontSave this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardThe entrance of the house and garage are clad in gates made of thin matte black steel bars with the top covered in green foliage. The small entrance hides the fact that the property is over an acre in extent and situated on a hill The house has its own rooftop herb and vegetable garden, employs solar panels to offset it electricity use, and has rain water harvesting tanks. that flows down to the lawn and lake. The lower level has a larger pool, and a boat house guest room over the lake.Save this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardProject gallerySee allShow lessUnique Mount EMEI Theater / WG Studio + BIAD-BOA StudioSelected ProjectsDorfler House / Vitor Vilhena ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Sri Lanka “COPY” “COPY” The Bolgoda House / Lalin DesignSave this projectSaveThe Bolgoda House / Lalin Design Photographs: Tristan Laurens Bernard Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Lalin Michael Jinasena ArchDaily CopyHouses, House Interiors•Sri Lanka CopyAbout this officeLalin DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsOn FacebookSri LankaPublished on December 25, 2020Cite: “The Bolgoda House / Lalin Design” 24 Dec 2020.
