The Ripple House is a series of unfurling spaces defined by subtle shifts in the site and light. Discreetly positioned behind a single-fronted Victorian façade, the addition reinvents the previously disconnected floorplan, creating a highly adaptable family home connected to its garden. The architecture develops a narrative around reverberation and progression, drawing on the ‘ripple’ notion to explore deft forms that mediate the descent of the site’s gentle fall and associated impact on the interior.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe traditional sequence of bedrooms is maintained as a study and guest room, while the bathroom is thoughtfully re-worked. The junction of old and new is marked by a change in floor level and finish – from timber to concrete, with a lowered ceiling saturated in deep green. Kitchen cabinetry is recessive with crisp white finishes, juxtaposed with sculptural ply forms. The island bench has broad proportions with forms responding to the rippling ceiling, creating an intuitive gathering area for informal entertaining.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Peter BennettsBeyond, a striking rippled ceiling in silver-top ash defines the principal volume of the new extension. Folded forms crank to capture northern light above the neighboring brick boundary wall, while raking low along the southern boundary to allow neighbors the same privilege. Junctions were meticulously detailed to achieve a restrained sensibility. A ‘springing point’ anchors the ceiling arrangement, with a triangular skylight drawing in morning light and creating strong definition between dining and lounge volumes. Save this picture!© Peter BennettsAn angular ply unit sits in sculptural dialogue below, housing utilities in a refined and elegant gesture, reinforcing the definition between spaces while maintaining visual connections. Operable glazing unites the living room with a narrow, stepped garden along the northern edge, extending the interior footprint to give a sense of scale and generosity. The rippled timber ceiling projects along this spine, creating an inverted pathway in the sky.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsA wide sliding door opens to the main bedroom, offering views through to the eastern garden. Here, a mirrored shed reflects the lush textures of the stepped garden and rippled ceiling, appearing to span the full length of the site. When the sliding door is closed, the experience of the master bedroom becomes intimate and secluded. A walk-through robe leads to a tactile en-suite finished in eucalypt tiling, responding to the natural and calming tones of nature, washed in morning light. Save this picture!ElevationsRipple House is designed around the core tenets of sustainable building practice. The concrete slab provides effective thermal mass by absorbing northern sun, while the canopies offer shade to the interior in the hotter months. The walls and ceiling are highly insulated, while windows are double-glazed, effectively controlling thermal and acoustic performance. Natural and locally sourced materials are favored, including silver top ash, ply, laminate, timber and brick. Furniture is Australian designed and made, while interspersed with vintage pieces. The rippled ceiling combines energy-conscious LED strips, animating the geometry with lines of light, transforming the impact of the ceiling between day and night. The house expresses a continual play between pragmatics and the creative reverberations between light and site.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessPeru Pavilion in the 2021 Venice Biennale: “Playground, Artifacts for Interaction”Architecture NewsHouse LN / HO+HOU studio architectsSelected Projects Share Architects: FMD Architects Area Area of this architecture project Manufacturers: Dulux, MAXI Plywood, Lysaught, Radial Timbers Builder: Photographs Structural Engineer: B.F.C.

Sellas Tetteh wary of Portuguese threat

first_imgBlack Satellites coach Sellas Tetteh is backing his side to sneak past the highly rated Portuguese side when the two teams go into action on Wednesday at the Kadir Has Stadium in Kayseri in the round of 16 clash.The Seleccao have brushed aside their previous opponents with relative ease and have scored a worrying ten goals so far in the tournament.Tetteh, who won the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup in Egypt, said at the pre-match conference he is refusing to be intimidated by the attacking threat of his opponents.“Their form in front of goal is enough to frighten anyone, ten goals in three games is no mean achievement,” said Sellas Tetteh “They are a free scoring side with a solid technical team, we have taken great pains to have a look at all their games and have noticed a few things which we will try to exploit.“A lot of things do happen in the course of games and it will incumbent on the bench to map out the right strategies to outwit our opponents. Hopefully, we can get a result after the game.” This is an opportunity for the Black Satellites to step up and be counted like they did against the USA.The winner of this game would come up against either Croatia or Chile at the quarter final stage.last_img read more
