Luxury Home Design Review
Luigi Rosselli has completed designed a modern luxury house called the Elamang Avenue House which located in Sydney, Australia. By the architect, this living space was created in 2010. The architect brief is to design a living space which provides a comfortable design. Then whats makes a living space for being comfortable?
This not just a question of good padding on the lounges but the ability of a building to provide a climatically comfortable environment, a place where the people seek refuge from the heat of the day or in the cold nights, without having to barricade themselves behind hermetically shut windows.
What makes a house comfortable? Is it the level of padding in the couches or the climatic and physical comfort that architecture, integrated with nature, allows? Elamang is a house which attempted the highest level of “comfort” as described above, whilst producing the smallest environmental impact.
Luxury Home Design Architecture
The rammed earth walls and well located operable skylights, the sun drenched courtyard and the breezy verandah, the green roof and external shutters have all contributed to a most liveable waterfront residence and to win the AIA sustainable design award for 2011. A rammed earth wall spine is the passive thermal system which is developed in this living space. It is intended to provide the protection from the climatic extremes. The spine links all levels of the long stepping dwelling on its south side.
The design was awarded as a proof that sustainable architecture can be applied to the top end of Residential architecture. The design of the house uses the articulation of the old footprint, the additions and the garage volumes to form three landscaped courtyards and gardens. The scheme also aimed to morph the existing dwelling into a more contemporary house and to link it to a new garage structure on Elamang Avenue.
Photovoltaic’s produce a considerable amount of the dwellings energy, as does a solar hot water installation. The bowels of the house contain 14300 liters of water tanks and, much like a camel it can survive heat and drought with minimal water and energy consumption.
The project succeeded as a testing ground for our aim to combine a high quality of residential design with a high level of environmental sustainability.
