Irregular grid design for Marin County Residence, California
Chicago-based architectural practice Dirk Denison Architects have designed the Marin County Residence project. Completed in 2004, this contemporary property can be found in Marin County, California, US.
According to the architects “This accessible property was designed on one level to provide a barrier-free environment and to capitalise on the potential for an internalised landscape. The plan was based upon an irregular grid, which informs all elements of its composition.
“Each programmatic function is contained within an individual building to respond to its specific needs. This enables each space to form a distinct relationship with its own courtyard or garden.
“The ceiling plane was fractured and folded along a diagonal pattern, exploring the interplay of light in unique ways.
“These spatial volumes are bound together by an enclosing perimeter wall, which creates a single form out of a village of buildings and landscapes. The irregular pattern of openings in this simple wall hints at the home’s underlying geometry and expresses the various functions contained within.”
The interior design is contemporary but functional. Adelto loves the outdoor shower – perfect for the California sun.
