Golf Course House with Modern Open Floor Plan – h_Home by Ras-a

Wed, Jun 23, 2010 | Modern home designs | By Mike

The h_Home is designed by Ras-a on a golf course in southwestern Missouri. It has a modern open floor plan and very simple forms and materials. The house is comprised of a series of “shed” like forms mimicking the simple structures of nearby farmland. From the entrace to the golf course it becomes more and more transparent. The main core, containing the entry, dining, kitchen, and living area, is open and filled with large expanses of glass which bring the surrounding landscape inside. This space is covered by a butterfly roof with a continuos ribbon of clerestory windows, allowing diffused light to flood the interior. Following the natural grade of the site, the floor level steps down at the living room, further enhancing the dramatic views and light filled volume. An oversized sliding glass door spills this space out into a large pavilion like patio blurring the distinction between indoors and out.

A passive solar design using the buildings orientation, operable clerestory windows, high efficient ceiling fans, and proper material choices, helps condition the house naturally in the spring and fall months. During the more extreme seasons of summer and winter, a geothermal system provides the additional heating and cooling. Using the earth’s underground temperature, the system can condition the house without burning fossil fuels or emitting carbon dioxide. { Ras-a }
