#3Novices: Core Collective designs Sunnybanks House to withstand wild weather in rural Tasmania

Architecture practice Core Collective has completed a house in Tasmania featuring a robust material palette of concrete, steel, masonry and timber that complements its rural seaside setting.

Sunnybanks House by Core Collective Architects

Core Collective, which is based in the Australian island state’s capital Hobart, designed Sunnybanks House for a retired couple who left Sydney to enjoy a rural lifestyle in the countryside of southern Tasmania.

The property is situated on a north-facing hillside looking out towards the D’Entrecasteaux Channel which extends between the mainland and Bruny Island.

The clients wanted an attractive home that makes the most of the available views, provides enough space to accommodate visiting family, and is low-energy and solar efficient.

The architects set out to create a building that would merge with the surrounding landscape and take advantage of its aspect, whilst offering protection from the harsh maritime climate.

“We wanted the house to sit with the contours of the hill, nestling into the bank and opening up its long north-facing side to the panoramic views and warming sunshine,” said the studio.

“Knowing that this part of Tasmania can experience wild weather throughout the year, we built in a sheltered outdoor entertaining area, covered by a roof and with an outdoor fireplace to keep warm by.”

A concrete retaining wall lining a gravelled yard at the front of the house continues along another side of this space, where a pre-weathered-steel garage door and recessed main entrance are located.

The architects worked alongside a local steel fabricator to develop several custom-made items for the house, including the large screen separating the gravelled area from the garden.

Internally, the entrance leads straight into an open-plan kitchen and dining area lined with large windows that frame views of the countryside and the sea.

Immediately in front of the entrance and to one side of the living space is a sheltered terrace lined with full-height glazing that helps to extend the interior out towards the garden.

A door set into the glass at the end of the living area connects the indoor and outdoor spaces. A continuous concrete floor flows out onto the terrace, which is raised up like a plinth above the grass.

A wall clad in vertical timber boards curves around the end of the kitchen to separate this room from a corridor leading towards a master bedroom suite at one end of the house.

Two further bedrooms are located at the opposite end of the building, beyond a utility room connected to the garage and a bathroom that looks out onto a secluded gravel garden.

The landscaping of this garden and the rest of the outdoor spaces incorporates plants chosen to suit the needs of the clients and the building’s context. A green roof over the garage is planted with native species.

The material palette used throughout the project aims to provide a neutral backdrop for the clients’ collection of furniture, artworks, literature and music, with natural tones and textures adding warmth to the otherwise minimal look.

#3Novices: Dezeen’s top 10 installations of 2017

A golden cage protesting Donald Trump’s border-control measures and an “obese house” in Vienna are among some of the installations created in 2017. Continuing our review of 2017, editorial assistant Natashah Hitti selects her top 10.

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors by Ai Weiwei

In a campaign against Donald Trump’s border-control measures, Chinese artist and human-rights activist Ai Weiwei built three monumental structures from metal fencing, to resemble security fences.

All located in New York, the structures include a giant golden cage in Central Park, and an enclosure that slots inside the Washington Square Arch.

Tree of Codes set design by Olafur Eliasson

Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson used a combination of mirrors and coloured screens to create illusionistic, abstract scenes for Wayne McGregor‘s Tree of Codes ballet, which was on show at London theatre Sadler’s Wells in March.

The performance is based on, and named after, an artwork in the form of a book by Jonathan Safran Foer, which was created by cutting apart Bruno Schulz’s book The Street of Crocodiles to form a new narrative.

Fat House by Erwin Wurm

Earlier this year, Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm installed his “obese house” in the grounds of Vienna’s 18th-century Belvedere palace.

Similar in form to a conventional suburban house, the seven-metre high sculpture was created as a commentary on middle-class consumer culture. The house’s walls appeared to have swollen out, giving the impression of fatty flesh rather than an architectural structure.

Aura installation by Studio Nick Verstand 

Shown as part of this year’s Dutch Design Week, this audiovisual installation by Studio Nick Verstand reinterpreted people’s emotions as pulsing light compositions.

Equipped with multiple biosensors that register brainwaves, heart-rate variability, and galvanic skin response, visitors sat or laid down on the floor as a musical composition played out in the background, triggering emotional responses. The visitors’ emotional “data” was then analysed and metamorphosed into different forms, colours and intensities of light that were beamed down onto them from above.

Mirage by Doug Aitken

American artist Doug Aitken built this house-shaped structure clad in mirrors, which reflects the surrounding desert landscape of the Coachella Valley.

The Mirage installation was modelled on a ranch-style suburban American house, and also found inspiration from the modernist ideas of architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Destierro by Anish Kapoor

British sculptor Anish Kapoor filled a room with over 100 tonnes of earth spread across the floor before spraying it with a bright red pigment, to represent the unseen borders that separate the modern world.

The installation, titled Destierro, was on show at the Parque de la Memoria in Argentina, which was created as a memorial to the victims of the military regime that ruled Argentina from 1976 to 1983.

Cloud House by Matthew Mazzotta

This shed-like pavilion by artist Matthew Mazzotta features a cloud-shaped element over its corrugated roof, which rains whenever someone sits inside.

Once a person is sat on one of the rocking chairs in the shelter, pressure sensors in the floor are activated, causing pumps to transport water from an underground storage tank up into the cloud, which releases the liquid through tiny holes to simulate rain. Those inside can hear the “warm pleasant sound” of the drops hitting the tin roof, and watch the water permeate through the window lintels to feed plants growing in the sills.

Six Pins and a Half Dozen Needles by Alex Chinneck

British artist Alex Chinneck created this “cartoon-like” installation from 4,000 bricks, intended to look like a page ripped from a book.

Titled Six Pins and a Half Dozen Needles, the sculpture was designed to appear as if part of the building’s facade had cracked in two. The installation was situated on the site of Assembly London – a campus of offices, retail units and restaurants situated in Hammersmith.

Passage/s by Do Ho Suh

These colourful translucent doorway structures represent all the different places that Korean artist Do Ho Suh has lived and worked, in a bid to explore ideas about identity and migration.

Displayed at London’s Victoria Miro Gallery, the Passage/s installation gave physical form to Suh’s idea of life as a journey, “with no fixed beginning or destination.”

Kaleidoscopic Ivy by Nendo

Japanese studio Nendo used over 40,000 shards of polished steel to form this installation spread across a Japanese flower-arranging school, designed to emulate an “ivy of mirrors.”

Featuring in an exhibition titled Hana So (Fireworks), the mirrored landscape reflected the flower arrangements placed around the space, resulting in kaleidoscopic visual effects.
