Architecture Design of Hurricane House
Description About The Project
Hurricane House designed by Studio PEEKANCONA, on a high flood hazard zone, Northern New Jersey. Indeed, the challenge was to build a high-strength home with an efficient construction schedule, budget, and operating costs. Hence, the resulted in the necessity of elevating all inhabitable space above the flood level creating a new typology of blurred indoor/ outdoor spaces that address the post-Sandy FEMA flood zone changes along the Eastern Seaboard.
On the other hand, the overall building form, which is an S-shaped plan, is designed to withstand massive wind and wave loads. A new ultralight hollow steel and wood composite frame cantilevered atop 12-foot concrete piers, providing clear views over the Atlantic, while at the same time, allowing future hurricane waves to roll beneath the house.
Once insides, the interiors of the home such as living room, dining room, kitchen… have been designed to be like the inside of a shell: pure and elegant. Sustainable materials and no/ low-VOC finishes have been paired with FSC – certified wood accents throughout adding texture and warmth to the otherwise abstract shell.
