Designed for an older couple who travel frequently, this coastal home accommodates visiting grandchildren and family as well as being a private, easily maintained haven between adventures. Building form was driven by site conditions and the need for accessibility; the resulting dynamic façade and dramatic internal volumes belie its liveability.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittScreening from western neighbours and the need for the home to sit at a single level across a sloping site dictated the form of the building. The overbearing nature of the two storey neighbour and threat of overshadowing and overlooking resulted in the design of a long, tall building form running the full length of the western boundary protecting the clients’ amenity. Living spaces are oriented towards the north and cross ventilated. Bedrooms are oriented to the east to capture the morning sun. Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittDownsizing from a grand heritage country homestead, this new home is consciously contemporary. The clients revel in the ‘touch button technology’ throughout the home. The standard mod-cons such as hydronic heating and electric blinds are relative luxuries after their old home where the stoking of daily fires was required to keep the house warm. Also important are the small touches that aid day to day living; a bench seat at the front door for removing dirty boots; the outdoor shower for rinsing sandy feet after a beach visit; the secret hatch in the garage that accesses the internal kitchen pantry directly so that the heavy grocery bags don’t have to be lugged. Save this picture!Ground FloorThis home was to be that which their previous home was not; contemporary and easy to maintain. Consideration of the clients aging comfortably in place determined that there should be no steps in the home; internal spaces and garden are at one continuous level and the resulting terraced garden at the rear of the sloping site provides ease of maintenance and an abundance of vegetables. The main living space features full height glazing to the north and south courtyards.  This can be opened out completely on either or both sides depending on weather conditions. Frequent entertainers, a flexible plan was required which allowed private studies to be converted to bedrooms when visitors stayed on. An isolated study with its own bathroom has the potential to house a live-in carer should the need arise in the future. This is a contemporary home steeped in the history of its occupants and designed around their daily lives. Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittComfort, ease of maintenance and facilitation of established daily rituals were primary elements of the clients’ brief. The home is fundamentally liveable and carefully considered with regard to the idiosyncrasies of the couple that live here. Spaces are carefully personalized with customized niches for mementos gathered over a lifetime. Despite the contemporary response required to accommodate the functional brief, the family history is richly evident. We are reminded every time we speak to the client how wonderful the house is to live in.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittProject gallerySee allShow lessCity of Sky / WJ DesignSelected ProjectsRidge Residence / Thier+Curran ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Centor, Caesarstone, Inlite, Neff, Qasair, RMS Marble, Reece, Vistosi, Acor, Mizu “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904854/humble-house-coy-yiontis-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeCoy Yiontis ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBarwon HeadsOn InstagramAustraliaPublished on November 01, 2018Cite: “Humble House / Coy Yiontis Architects” 31 Oct 2018.

Hearing Officer Approves CUP for Annandale Canyon Access Trail

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. 1410 Wierfield Drive Photo courtesy Google MapsA city hearing officer approved a conditional use permit (CUP) that will allow for the establishment of a “park and recreation facility” land use designation at 1410 Wierfield Drive.“The one argument that was raised on several occasions by some of the opponents was there was a citation in the application to the conservancy that talked about the preservation of the property,” said Hearing Officer Paul Novak.“I would add there was nothing that I saw in the documents associated with that grant that would have in any way prohibited what’s being discussed herein,” Novak said.The CUP will facilitate pedestrian access to Annandale Canyon as part of the Annandale Canyon Open Space Trail Access Improvement Project.The project includes a parking lot for six cars at the end of Wierfield Drive, a trailhead, a trail, and an observation point, according to a report on the proposal.“I ardently support the plan to afford public access to a park and recreation facility in Annandale Canyon,” said Roger Wolf in correspondence to the hearing officer.“As one among the principal group of neighbors who worked to preserve this open space, we recognized that enabling our fellow citizens to enjoy and appreciate this last vestige of natural habitat in our backyard is essential to preserving its existence,” Wolf wrote.“Actually, most advocates for aborting the project still want to preserve this precious patch of wildland. Their objections center around a list of potential dangers (fire risk, homeless encampments, crime, littering etc.), all of which are and will be existing problems of the same scale, independent of creation of a park facility. The minimal adverse effects of this project are far outweighed by the potential benefits to our local community.”Several opponents of the project claimed it could increase fire risk and could lead to homeless encampments in the area.“The potential for fire danger is my biggest concern if the canyon becomes accessible to the public,” said Darlene Smith.The trail will be gated during the construction phase. Per the approval of the CUP, signs will be posted prohibiting overnight camping and notifying motorists that their cars are subject to impound if they are in the parking lot at closing time. An emergency communications box could also be placed along the rail.The trailhead would include a bench, a combination trash/recycling receptacle, a series of boulders along both sides of the parking lot, and a security gate to prevent vehicle access after-hours.The 23-acre project site is currently undeveloped and includes an abandoned unpaved graded access road extending to the north from Wierfield Drive that is overgrown in many areas.The proposed trail will be 2,350 feet in length and three to five feet in width depending on any given point along the trail and the terrain and vegetation constraints.The trial will also incorporate the existing abandoned unpaved graded access road, with the exception of the proposed creek crossing, where the trail will utilize a portion of the existing trail.A wooden pedestrian bridge will be built at one drainage site and a proposed observation point would be located atop the San Rafael Hills. The observation point would include installation of a bench, interpretive signs, perimeter railing, and boulders.Upon completion of the project, maintenance of the trail, trailhead, and observation point would occur on an annual basis. Such maintenance would include the removal of trash and debris, trimming of vegetation that may infringe on the accessibility of the trail, and minor trail repairs and improvements for the trail’s overall maintenance.
