I've edited the images, but damn... the pink counterop top cutting the marble...some serious slice ninja shit!  Not even James Brown doing some Kung Fu in a Quentin Tarantino flic could do that!

I've actually seen something like this made out of heavy timber. It was for a engineering building on University of Minnesota Duluth. It was a reverse butterfly roof so everything drained into the center 'gutter' which extended 20 feet beyond the building into a below grade retention pool. The heavy timber gutter was so big because it was a structural member, it was conveying a large amount of water, and so that it couldn't freeze solid. Even if it did get ice the water would simply flow over it.

I believe you're correct. I really liked that particular building.

Imagine you make a small base that rises to allow trees under the bulk of the building, you probably make a reinforced or tensioned core and then move outwards; as you move up you change to masonry, and then wood.  In the masonry part you add real swank shit like

The hold back is not to cover deficiencies. Tsk tsk, but I am sure you know this.

Did you specify "blackened" steel? That's very trendy these days. I just spec everything that way hoping someone can figure out how to do it for cheap.

Blackened steel on the fireplace inside, used chemicals and a

Chad Miller

What process did you use whistler? I've never used blackened metal before but my limited understanding is that it uses a heated chemical process to produce the dark oxide. That oxide is rather fragile and requires sealant and reapplication of the chemicals to maintain the look. Is that accurate?

 · 
whistler

It's not science I can tell you that it was more experimental. I used the same process on a previous house ( similar to what you noted ) but didn't get it as dark and so I tried a few different variations on sample pieces. and yes you have to seal it. It won't seal that well and stay stable if it stays outside but inside it can be sealed and remains very stable. Sorry, I can't remember the chemical that I used but there is a bunch of products you could consider using on line.

Can you photoshop out the smoke detector? I once did that with an exit sign, why are they still only RED in the US?

 ·

They aren't.

I'm licensed in mainly Red states and a few gray ones, in which the local municipalities require Red...I like the Green.

But why? I like seeing well-placed devices and if I can help it (they got done correctly, for example) I leave them in photos of my own work. Ceiling coordination is a pain but incredibly important work.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the IRC section 310 assumes you're jumping out the window, so I figured, hell why not make that work in taller builders like 20 story multi-family (technically under IBC)....working on window specs now - clearly for a single-family home. What I find interesting in flood zones where the 1st floor is 10-12 feet above grade you can still jump out the window from the 2nd floor for egress, which at this point is really the 3rd floor....

It’s the proposed design for the Abrahamic Family House by Adjaye Associates. It’s completion date isn’t until 2022, but I thought I’d include it anyways.
