REVIEW: A Modernist-inspired bottle abode that is additionally a arch beyond a abrupt gully and a beck – wow. But that’s not the only reason this is the best-ever Grand Designs NZ build.
Throw in nail-biting tension, claimed struggles and a bashful budget, and appropriate there, you accept a compound for a amazing story.
Of course, it’s all about the vision, and Nicola Johnston and Harlem Irwin, with daughters Sylvie and Lil, have that in spades. They accept been through adamantine times; Irwin has battled depression; Sylvie has advancing bloom issues; and they’ve just awash a architecture business and the bungalow they accept spent years accomplishing up.
Grand Designs NZ host, artist Chris Moller revisits homeowners Nicola Johnston and Harlem Irwin afterwards they accept acclimatized in their amazing bottle abode on a bridge.
Irwin gets emotional: “It became appealing bright that article had to change.”
READ MORE* Grand Designs NZ: Brace cloister adversity with burnt house* Artist Chris Moller loves the risk-takers and battlers* Building bulk blowouts – why does this happen?
Their solution? A tricky, but cheap, bush-clad architecture armpit in Dunedin, and a plan for a Philip Johnson-inspired glass-walled abode on a arch accurate by aloof four weight-bearing posts. Alike Grand Designs NZ host Chris Moller questions their sanity: “Philip Johnson (Modernist architect) was brave, but you are mad.”
The complete abode spans a gully and a beck and is accurate by aloof four posts.
This ancestors needs a simpler, back-to-nature lifestyle. They’ve got the appropriate atom – Irwin has alike spotted freshwater crays in the beck that will be abounding anon below their abode in the backcountry (you could put a aperture in the attic and angle from the kitchen). As Moller quips, “You’ve got baptize and food, what added do you need? Oh, that’s right, a roof over your head.”
But accomplishing that simpler lifestyle is annihilation but simple.
The capital affair with this body is whether the arch bulk can authority the weight of the house, conspicuously 90 tonnes of accurate and 6 tonnes of glass. And they won’t absolutely apperceive the acknowledgment to this catechism until they do the accurate pour. How abundant added demanding could it be?
Moller spends a lot of time aggravating to allocution Irwin into abacus a brace of added posts to the middle, aloof in case. But no, that would accommodation the artful and ruin the “spirit of the building”, which is accurate (and Moller knows it). But the artist alike gives him a archetypal affirmation to appearance him (and us) how it ability fail.
Irwin’s assurance to stick to the aboriginal architecture is wonderful. We’ve apparent what happens aback “grand” designs get diluted. And, interestingly, addition Philip Johnson-inspired Grand Designs UK build is a complete archetype of that. God forbid that should appear here.
And there’s so abundant bamboozlement activity on abaft the scenes for this family it hurts to watch. They are active with Johnston’s parents and Johnston is a business administrator alive full-time aggravating to run the domiciliary afterwards Irwin’s help, because he’s full-on with the build.
There are sightlines appropriate through the house, as able-bodied as to the outdoors.
They move into a house-sitting role; Johnston gets a advance during the build, which requires her to be abroad from home a few nights a week, and they both worry about Sylvie. And on top of all of that, Johnston is amenable for the autogenous design.
But the better compound for adversity charcoal the bridge. Irwin behindhand the bulk of accurate activity into the cascade by allotment failing panels, so that brings it bottomward to 45 tonnes.
The builders charge to add balk supports to the arch for the accurate pour, because that’s aback the arch will be beneath the best stress.
The kitchen cabinetry was congenital by Irwin from pieces calm from an old science lab.
And who wouldn’t be on the bend of their bench watching that pour? Irwin admits he’s activity a bit “squeaky bum” about it all, with acceptable reason. The balk struts bow beneath the weight, and Irwin goes beneath the arch to attach up added timber. It could all appear bottomward on his head. We accept visions of anybody catastrophe up in the beck active in 45 tonnes of concrete. I assumption we aloof accept to await on the engineering, because it all turns out OK in the end.
And what a abode this is. Irwin calls it a “non house” because it’s advised to be cellophane – a abode you can’t see.
In an aside, to advice the brace with their planning Moller arranges a bout of the Brian Brake glass-walled abode in Titirangi, advised in 1976 by artist Ron Sang. This is addition highlight of this show. It’s an complete advantage to see that abode up close.
Even the beam is balk lined.
Of advance this couple also accept to put walls into their house, and there’s a lot of timber, so the Mid-century Modern attending of the exoteric is echoed by what’s on the inside. They let the bottle walls flash by affective bedchamber walls aback from the glass, so there’s a apportionment avenue appropriate forth the advanced of the building.
Clever Irwin (there’s no end to his skills) builds a beauteous kitchen out of an old allure lab from the university, which he got for a song. “He could see article in it that I couldn’t see,” says Johnston.
Added highlights accommodate the balk allotment in the centre of the open-plan active space, and Johnston’s interior, which she able with an autogenous artist friend, Talia O’Connor. It’s all balmy orange and tan and it’s beautiful.
Floor-to-ceiling bottle helps the abode to ‘disappear’ aural the bush.
This ancestors is actually active in the backcountry – you can apprehend the beck babbling and the birds. And there are possum eyes aglow in the aphotic that scare the girls, because there are no curtains in this house. Mirror bottle on the ancillary walls preserve the family’s privacy.
And the budget? It starts at $350k and climbs to $450k, and that doesn’t accommodate Irwin’s own labour, or the amount of the land, which they got for a bald $50k. But attending what they’re getting.
Moller describes it as a “most amazing build” and a “masterwork of alchemy”. We couldn’t accede more.
Mid-century appliance enhances the architectural aesthetic.
* This Grand Designs NZ body will be adamantine to exhausted – we appetite to alive here.
* As Chris Moller brand to say, sometimes you’ve aloof got to booty a risk.
* How can anyone anytime appetite white plasterboard walls afterwards seeing this house?
* Dunedin may be algid in winter, but this abode has in-slab heating and it’s warm and cosy.
* This body is a celebration of integrity, acceptance and perseverance. Grand Designs NZ at its actual best.
