The Bluff House by Bruns Architecture
Along the crown of a long oval shaped bluff range that extends to 30 miles is the place where the Bluff House is situated and was designed by Bruns Architecture . It has a gently sloping terrain which has intersecting volumes that can be seen growing out of it. As you come around the house approaching the former logging road carving by passing through the rhythmic woodland part that is in the site, the silhouette of the building slowly comes to vision from the green and dense vegetation in the place.
This house has a very simple yet a very diagrammatic and astounding geometry displaying the layered structure it has been constructed on and also the materials in the layers that were used. The Bluff house sure offers a clarity and warmth that heartily welcomes anyone who visits the place.
The house is organized in a well defined and intellectual way. There is a concrete wall that separates the residents who enter the garage from the guests who enter from the entry door made of wood. A circulation gallery invites the visitor straight into the main hall that also leads to the storage walkout. The plan also includes dining room, kitchen and also to extended the views of the house to make it grow into the forest to make the house a bluff in the forest. Also, technically the house is made of SIP walls and with filled glazing. The outside air is cleared and thoroughly filtered by the ventilator which efficiently helps in bringing fresh atmospheric and natural air in the house.
