Hotchkiss Residence in Vancouver, Washington

Hotchkiss Residence
The unique Hotchkiss Residence was designed by Scott Edwards Architects company and is located in the North- American city of Vancouver, Washington. The total living space of the building is about 200 square meters. This project was ordered by an elderly couple who had lived in this area for over 40 years. Requirements of the clients to a construction company were clear and simple: low-cost mansion, one-storey building, an observance of ecological norms in building, modern technologies in power and heat supply for the building. The construction has been completed in 2010 and the newly built elegant villa has deservedly occupied a worthy place among the elite American real estate.

The appearance of the house is of rectangular structure with a sloping roof for optimal water run- -off because of 8 months of rain yearly in this region. The frame of the house was made of steel structures and concrete foundation. For the external redecoration the Canadian cedar wood was used as the basic material which is resistant to atmospheric effects and is extremely beautiful. A two cars garage joins the house. Garage doors were made in the same styles as the basic design of the building.

The front view of the house from the main entrance has partially glazed surface, but the rear part of the building was made almost entirely of glass. This allowed maximizing the visual effect of open space, glass partitions on the rear side are easy to open for free access to the terrace in the warmer months.

The customers of this impressive villa rejected the idea of internal partition walls and used «open space» principle for living space. Large living room connects the dining room and the kitchen area in one guest room.

For decoration of the living space of the Hotchkiss Residence a collection of inexpensive birch and maple furniture was used. The dining room and the kitchen were furnished with designer chairs made of ecological plastics. The main requirement of the clients to a solution on interior areas – the furniture does not have to be bulky and heavy – was performed.

The lighting system of the house is solved using the opportunities given by large windows with free access to daylight almost all year round while at night the interior is illuminated with a few light fixtures of spherical and cylindrical shape.
