Home is where the health is… The Jessie Street Residence was designed for a family struggling with the adverse health effects of an old home with limited natural light and mold issues due to poor site drainage. As a result, the architect’s mission was to design a sensible, economic home with the simple goal of providing a healthy interior environment. This project became a study in healthy design, budget restraint, and pragmatic beauty.Save this picture!© Leonid Furmansky PhotographyFrom the outside in, each material and construction technique was vetted and combined to minimize mold, mildew, and other respiratory contaminates. The design team chose Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) as the exterior wall system and embraced what it had to offer for this house. Apart from its quick assembly time and durability, this material has a 4-hour fire rating, is moisture resistant, soundproof, mold resistant, impact resistant, termite proof, and vermin proof.Save this picture!© Leonid Furmansky PhotographySave this picture!Level 1 PlanSave this picture!© Leonid Furmansky PhotographyOther factors, such as utilizing products with no or low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), advanced air-conditioning and dehumidification, and ample natural daylighting were prioritized as necessities for this home’s interior environment. From the aesthetic standpoint, the ICF’s modular limitations led the design team to capitalize on volumetric simplicity.Save this picture!© Leonid Furmansky PhotographyThe resultant simple and monolithic shell encouraged a fresh take on the structural system. Exposed steel beams confidently support the entire second floor and simultaneously provide a light and buoyant spatial experience. This approach allowed for pronounced sectionality and formed a strong connection between both stories.Save this picture!© Leonid Furmansky PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow less3XN’s Waterfront Climatorium Pays Tribute to the Fishing Culture of Lemvig, DenmarkArchitecture NewsCarbuncle Cup 2018: The Shortlist for the UK’s Most “Aesthetically Challenged” New B…Architecture News Share Photographs Architects: Derrington Building Studio Area Area of this architecture project Jessie Street Residence / Derrington Building Studiolast_img read more
