Architecture Design of The Bridge House

Description About The Project

The Bridge House designed by Vallely Architecture is a luxury house which pays respect to the tenets of modern architecture while incorporating distinctly regional elements of a West Coast contemporary aesthetic. Indeed, this house was given its name because of a dramatic bridge that extends from the rear yard to the house. Instead of isolating the upper tier of the garden, the bridge was created in order to gain access from both levels. Charcoal – colored Swisspearl panels are used both on the interior and exterior as a neutral, dark element juxtaposed with the transparent glazed facades. The dark panels animate the interior spaces and mirror the dramatic dark palette of the exterior facade.

In addition to this, the building site rises a whole floor level from the front of the house to the rear yard. The client wanted to enter the front of the home on the main floor at grade. And wanted to maintain a connection at this level to the rear yard as well. Hence, this would require create a sunken rear yard adjacent to the house. And the concern was that this would create a disconnection to the higher part of the rear yard beyond. This challenge of grade became the inspiration for the project.

Once insides, the interiors such as living room, dining room, kitchen. bedroom and bathroom designed sophisticatedly to offer high end amenities for the owners. Also, wood used throughout the home to maintain a sense of warmth and connection to the surrounding forest.

The Architecture Design Project Information:

The open facades and floating lines with the backdrop of massive old pines create an impression of lightness, almost like a tree-house perched on the site.

The designer proposed a bridge as a dramatic architectural element that would both physically and visually connect the upper level of the home to the rear yard while still provide ample space for an outdoor area beneath it of this The Bridge House.

Indeed, the bridge carries into and through the home becoming the central stair. And the spine of circulation within the The Bridge House.

The Bridge House rises from a base of the board from concrete to a second floor clad in wood and Swisspearl facade panels. A large green roof covers much of the roof surface and presents a natural backdrop for viewers within and beyond the home.
