Examples of very tall, small footprint single residence buildings?

jkolko

Hi,

I am looking for examples (both "award winning" and plain old regular construction) of tall (30 to 50 foot) single residence buildings. Bonus points for ocean-front, lake-front, or something that was built in order to emphasize a view. 

Thanks -

Google it.

Yes, I did. There's reasons to ask on a board, instead of just googling something. Commentary, details, recommendations of artists, etc. Maybe you have some of these things to add?

I do but you should really do your own research.

Research is hard. better just ask online wankers to do the heavy lifting. I don't need to learn anything anyways.

jkolko

How is this not "doing research" and why do you assume I haven't done anything beyond asking here?

Chad Miller

Because it took us about five minuets of searching google to come up with the results you're looking for. Either you're inept or lazy.

jkolko

Cool thanks!

If you don’t know what inept means, ask an online forum.

Chad Miller

I amend my previous comment to include illiterate.

jkolko

Cool thanks!

Chad Miller

Yes, we get it, you're trying to be dismissive. Try harder next time.

Tower House is a great example. I bet the birds love the mirrored glass. *whap*

Japan has a lot:

Remember there was also one recently with an incredibly small (1m or so) front, opened out at rear of property in an L shape. Either on here or Dezeen...

Image-search of that led me here: https://kotaku.com/cramped-or-not-i-want-to-live-in-these-tiny-japanese-h-1051646360

Pretty good.

FYI that image is The Narrow House of Rokko by Seiji Fujihara. Kobe, Japan.

OP if you want to see my finished (1$+) design, i'll post it in this thread in exactly 7 days.

jkolko

OK I will wait here and guard our stuff

Jawknee, I can't wait to see this tower house. Hopefully it will come with full structural calcs too.

JawkneeMusic

it is, the stem is posttensioned floor which offsets the overhang. on top of the steel/concrete is masonry then wood. It may have a core past the stem in order to make a subtower which if needed will have cables to the perimeter. I'm using boston soil but seismic 10

Why are you doing it's research? Slow morning?

jkolko

Why are you so angry?

Chad Miller

Why are you so lazy and easily upset?

Non Sequitur

Chad, was in uber on way to site meeting.

Chad Miller

Excuses, excuses. You're becoming nice.

Non Sequitur

Hey now... shut up.

I like the rounded corners on the tower house.

Waechter is a fantastic architect.

I too am interested in this typology - mostly because my own house is 4 levels set into the side of a hill. I’d look up work by atelier bow wow.

I waver between really liking this one and thinking it's a little too precious with its Spanish Colonial pretensions...I'll let y'all decide for yourselves.

The car makes it.

Out of everything going on here, the light is comically annoying to me, and I wish the front door were bigger. However, I’d live the hell out of that thing
