These western views are central to the layout of the main level, indicated by the large exterior balcony near the living area. The upper level contains the home’s remaining private spaces, including a study and two bedrooms. The two main forms of the house are separated by a ‘canyon’ designed to allow for both vertical and horizontal ventilation. The corridor is naturally illuminated via skylights and serves to differentiate between major areas of the residence. Photography Paul Richer (Richer Images) Materials such as architectural concrete and Corten steel cladding were selected for the exterior because they require almost no routine maintenance and enhance the modern aesthetic of the house.
All over the house the evocative contrast of intense textural materials is a striking design feature. Rough sandstone plays off against smooth concrete; timber screens contrast with lush plants; jewel-coloured tiles arranged in an Islamic fan pattern break up blocks of austere Calacatta marble. A sandstone wall that ‘snakes’ its way through the building from inside to out is a clever tactical and visual device, used to connect a variety of spaces.
These elements also serve to separate the kitchen–dining area from the living room, but without impeding a sense of openness. Photography Erin Warder (Eat and Breathe Photography) A generous and eclectic use of windows and glazed doors draws in light from all sides. If large picture windows that provide stunning tableaus of the Aberdeen’s impressive cupola and the backyard facing wall glazed doors are boldly voyeuristic, many narrow vertical slot and horizontal clerestory windows contribute slices of views while protecting privacy.
