The name Tierwelthaus, or ‘Wildlife House’ evolved from the unique relationship between the home and the land. A heavily used deer trail passes into the canyon to the north and a screech owl who had taken up quarters within the structure during construction now frequents the property. A pair of bobcats regularly patrol the yard, while birds and small creatures alike have built homes in the encompassing terrain.Save this picture!© Paul DyerSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Paul DyerPreviously acquired in a bankruptcy settlement, Tierwelthaus underwent a minor remodel and a changing of hands before becoming the current clients’ forever home. The previous owner was interested only in exterior “touch up” and a modest remodel of the top floor. When the house was transferred into the current client’s possession, there existed a disconnect between the contemporary revisions and original ranch-style design. Partial to the preceding remodel, the clients were interested in finishing what had been started. Hailing from New Zealand and the bay area respectively, the couple was interested in building a modern, livable, low-maintenance house.Save this picture!© Paul DyerSave this picture!© Paul DyerThe home faces due west, and onto a quiet road that lifts away from the house. Recognizing that its primary visual access comes from above, the redesign included an uplift of the home’s exterior and front façade. The east face of the home sits on a down sloping hill and upon entering the house, one has immediate visual access to the sweeping views beyond.  Expansive decks on both levels extend the trajectory outwards placing one directly into nature. On the exterior, a horizontal composite louvre system was applied to provide privacy and emphasize the linearity of the façade. A minimalist garden pavilion cropping out from the front veneer creates a layered entryway into the home.Save this picture!© Paul DyerSave this picture!© Paul DyerTo give further clarity to the house’s structure and design, agave plants, cabbage trees, and succulents, inspired by New Zealand landscape were cultivated throughout the site. Clearing droves of poison oak on the hillside allowed for the opening of the understory around native oaks trees. The addition of the drought-resistant, contemporary landscape immediately adjacent to the home integrates its modern design with the surrounding setting while also allowing the environment to dissipate into its own native form.Save this picture!© Paul DyerProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Community Center for Otica Native Community / SemillasSelected ProjectsPrisons RedesignedIdeas Share Olivewood Inc, John Rodhouse Landscape: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/938461/tierwelthaus-house-feldman-architecture Clipboard Civil Engineer: Architects: Feldman Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Carpenter: CopyHouses•Portola Valley, United States Projects Area:  5012 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img
