The owners wanted to build a getaway house outside of Los Angeles where they could entertain and find a balance between the modern design they desired and a more direct relationship to nature. After a two year search in the Southern California region they discovered pristine acreage near Montecito at the top of a mountain and adjacent to national park land.Save this picture!site PlanThe site strategy is one of slow revelation and discovery of the house and- ultimately- the view. The road, which had to be built for access, brings the visitor to a point below the house- where a formal stair leads up to the entry sequence. The front door frames and reveals views of the Santa Barbara coastline through the courtyard.Save this picture!© Laure JolietA 40’ wide horizontal ‘panavison’-esque opening gives the house a pavilion-like atmosphere. The dwelling is organized around three courtyards; the primary one at the heart of the house also serves as the front entrance and outdoor living room. The courtyards have a dual purpose: they bring in ample natural light and ventilation but also provide protection from the strong winds that can race across the mountain.Save this picture!© Laure JolietThe rough and very thick boardform concrete walls, custom color-mixed to match the dark red and brown tones of the earth at the site, form a rugged shell that is punctuated by large openings and reveals of the Alaskan cedar wood siding. The inner shell’s warm wood and windows into the protected courtyards create a warm and tactile interior respite from the hardy environment.Project gallerySee allShow lessTrading “Should” for “Could”: Opening up Debate on the Obama Library DesignArticles”Every Building is a Social Critique” – Polshek Describes His Oeuvre in Latest BookMisc Share Year:  Civil Engineer: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/504464/toro-canyon-house-bestor-architecture Clipboard Lighting Designer: Kaplan, Gehring, McCarroll Architectural Lighting, Dan Weinreber 2012 Photographscenter_img ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBestor ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta Barbara CountyHousesUnited StatesPublished on May 11, 2014Cite: “Toro Canyon House / Bestor Architecture” 11 May 2014.

Demand on the rise for city units

first_imgLyn Griffiths and Rohan Banning out the front of the Mariners North complex, after selling a unit for asking price in 15 days.TOWNSVILLE’S unit market is edging towards recovery following a string of promising apartment sales.Real estate agents are reporting units in the CBD or city fringe areas are starting to sell for a profit again, oversupply is drying up and high-end stock is starting to move.Lyn Griffiths and Rohan Banning from RE/MAX just sold 5/7 Mariners Drive, located at the Mariners North complex in the city, for the asking price of $1,190,000.Ms Griffiths said many people doubted they could move the three-bedroom, ground floor unit for a seven-figure sum but it was quickly snapped up by a northwest Queensland buyer.“The higher-end stock is now starting to move,” she said. “We had a few cynics in and outside the industry to prove wrong, who said we couldn’t sell it for that price.“I definitely think the unit market in on the way up and there has been enough sales and inquiries on the higher-end stuff that the bottom of the market is behind us.”Townsville-wide unit prices are edging closer to stabilisation with the latest Core Logic regional update recording a fall in median unit prices of just 0.6 per cent, compared with houses, which dropped by 2.8 per cent. Many industry insiders are tipping widespread price rises could come in the first quarter of 2018.Knight Frank Townsville managing director Craig Stack agrees the first signs of sustainable recovery in residential demand are evident in the inner-city unit market.He said units were selling quicker than they were six months ago, occupancy levels had increased and the overall market share of sales indicated demand for inner-city units was outstripping demand for suburban units.“The number of days units are taking to sell is a strong indicator of improved demand,” Mr Stack said.He said while owner-occupiers dominated the demand for city units above $300,000, investors were after units below that figure.“Investors dominate purchaser activity below $300,000 with non-local investors responsible for two out of every three investment sales for inner-city units,” Mr Stack said.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020“Out of towners understand the pricing in other markets and appreciate the value in our market by comparison.“We have had a very strong response to units we are selling along Ross Creek and the increased interest since June has been very evident. “The opening of the universities in the CBD and civil works commencing at the stadium site appear to be the catalysts to this interest and The Strand continues to sell itself as an attraction.”The surge in confidence follows several sales of luxury apartments.After languishing on the market for months. a penthouse at 5/92 The Strand sold for $1.4 million in October.Just weeks earlier a penthouse at the exclusive Solarus complex on Palmer St sold to a southern buyer for a record-breaking $2 million while in September another penthouse at 1601/122 Walker St sold for $1.2 million. Mark Stevenson and ­Marion Grice from RE/MAX Excellence also recently sold a penthouse at the Jade apartment complex in Landsborough St under the hammer for $752,000. The three-bedroom apartment had sold in 2011 for $700,000.Mr Stevenson said despite having four bidders vying for the apartment, 12 months ago he would not have been game to try to sell a unit at auction.“That bit of confidence is coming back,” he said. “There was that period where unemployment pushed up and people put properties on the market and it accelerated an oversupply but I think that has been absorbed now.“Now is the perfect time to take that opportunity to get into the market.”last_img read more
