Located in an apple orchard in Sonoma County, California, contemporary Orchard House by Anderson Anderson Architecture alternates concrete, galvanized steel and floor to ceiling glass a true reflection of the unique design of its surroundings. This prefabricated modern house is repeated using a modular structure and standardized sandwich SIPS panel and prefabricated truss backbone. This approach has been to design two advantages - a highly adaptable, and have reduced construction costs.
But do not be fooled, this project did not just "go back". The design involved a study of surrounding agricultural landscape, and every tree that dot it. "True to the nature of the orchard, the house is expected that long sequences of indoor and outdoor classes, defined by the trees nearby, offering long, counter views and straight along the diagonal axis the ground, "said Anderson Anderson Architecture." The solid concrete walls align with the rows of tree trunks, while the volume of open rooms and outside the courts align with the open space between trees , providing a spatial continuity between home and landscape, figure and void. "
The house of the poor visibility and flat roofs take comfort in the treetops. The interior and exterior, this modern single house has a minimum of simplicity - heated concrete, rough concrete walls primary external and internal, secondary and interior walls and ceilings are finished panels white gypsum.
