The idea for the tea houses originated years ago, when the owner and his young daughter explored the remote hills surrounding their Silicon Valley home, discovering an idyllic setting below a ridge, under a grove of large California Live Oak trees. At first, the family thought the setting would be perfect for a tree house. Years later, after the 6000 square foot main house was extensively remodeled, the vision was realized as three individual tea houses, places where one could simply retreat into nature.

Cast-in-place concrete core elements anchor the pavilions, supporting steel channel rim joists, which cantilever beyond the cores to support the floor and roof planes. With its minimal footprint, the design treads lightly on the land, minimizing grading and preserving the delicate root systems of the native oaks.

The 270 square foot ‘meditation’ tea house, nestled under the canopy of the largest oak tree, is a place for individual contemplation. The slightly larger ‘sleeping’ tea house, approximately 372 square feet, is a place designed for overnight stays. This structure is joined by a sky-lit bathroom core, which bridges to the largest tea house. At 492 square feet, the ‘visioning’ tea house is for intimate gatherings and creative thinking. The notion of ‘quiet simplicity’ is a consistent theme throughout – there are no phones, televisions or audio systems within these structures.

Steel framed doors and awning windows provide access and high – low ventilation, while custom-modified aluminum framed sliding doors, with custom steel interlockers and fixed glass panels, mitered at the corners, dissolve the barrier between inside and outside. Natural cooling is enhanced by shading from strategically placed landscaping, including evergreen redwood trees and bamboo, and deciduous maple and gingko trees. Heating is provided by a radiant hydronic system below the flooring. Electricity is produced on-site by a photovoltaic array mounted on the roof of the main house.

Save this picture!© Tim GriffithAs the sunlight and shadows move across the hillside the tea houses take on different forms – at sunrise, the structures disappear into the long shadows; the soft silhouette of the midday sun casts dramatic reflections off the glass; and by evening, the structures glow like lanterns in a garden. Viewed from afar or viewed from within, the tea houses appear at one with their sites, inextricably connected to the native California landscape.Save this picture!section 02Project gallerySee allShow lessResort Hotel / Holzer Kobler ArchitekturenArticlesCall for Entries: Norman Foster Travel PrizeArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/201014/tea-houses-swatt-miers-architects Clipboard “COPY” Year:  Photographs Manufacturers: AXOR, Hansgrohe, Bega, Benjamin Moore, Bruck Lighting, Delta Light, Duravit, FSB, Fleetwood, Lacava, Aeron, Pablo Pardo, TeakWorks4U Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description 2009 CopyAbout this officeSwatt | Miers ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 18, 2012Cite: “Tea Houses / Swatt | Miers Architects” 18 Jan 2012.

The house is located close to the abasto market, transformed today into a commercial center. Like the market, the house where the venturini family presently lives, has homed a variety of different uses. At the time of the construction the house functioned as a house for rent. It`s organization responded to a very common typology in the city of buenos aires. small houses were located towards the interior of the block, where as the one belonging to the owner was the facade to the street. The devaluation of this area of the city towards the middle of last century brought about the occupation of the main house, being transformed into a tenement house.Save this picture!© Cristobal PalmaOur intervention can be summarized in three actions: extraction, redescription and addition. the first of them meant the recovery of the original spatial structure. The second phase of the project was simply based on labeling again each of the spaces in order to adapt the existing structure to a contemporary way of life. Finally, the last action was based in two precise additions. The first of them was the materialization of a mezzanine floor, which allowed to simultaneously cover a yoga room in the basement and to give support to an exterior expansion for the living room area. At last, the construction of a light structure on the roof, for multiple uses, made visible the optimism that follows the revaluation of the city as a way of new crowning for the property.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessMichael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA) Chosen as Landscape Architect for Menil Co…ArticlesBarranco No. 436 / JSªSelected Projects Share Photographs Year:  “COPY” Venturini House / Adamo FaidenSave this projectSaveVenturini House / Adamo FaidenSave this picture!© Cristobal PalmaHouses•Buenos Aires, Argentina Venturini House / Adamo Faiden ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/396575/venturini-house-adamo-faiden Clipboard ArchDaily Architects: Adamo Faiden Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Cristobal Palma+ 17 Share “COPY” Houses 2012 Argentina Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/396575/venturini-house-adamo-faiden Clipboardlast_img
