2010 NATIONAL NARI REGIONAL AWARD WINNER Project Scope The owners of this 7,000 square foot colonial in Oakton, Virginia, were seeking a multi-level Mediterranean-style indoor/outdoor living space off the back of their home. They turned to Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes for a design solution that would include a stone patio, a second-story deck, a screened-in porch and linking staircases. While the structure was designed primarily for family dining and entertaining, it also had to accommodate periodic social gatherings of one hundred guests or more. To meet these needs, the project would include a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen, several serving counters with permanent refrigeration, and well-delineated socializing and dining zones. The existing home’s setting offered several impressive assets the new outdoor living area was designed to exploit. The sprawling acreage features old stand trees, wooded paths and a private lake. Beautifully landscaped, it unfolds as an idyllic panorama that naturally draws people to the outdoors. Challenges Since the rear elevation was situated on a slope that drops away from the house, the Michael Nash team had to raise the grade two feet within in a 2,000 square foot area extending out from the back of the house. Infrastructure plans also called for a sophisticated drainage system that had to accommodate a whole series of water “runoff” considerations to be integrated into the decking itself. Excavation included constructing retaining walls to bolster the elevated grade—which also had to support a concrete slab, the primary foundation for the entire complex. Solutions The ground level decking consists of a 2,000 square foot flagstone patio level with the home’s lower level doors. There is a decorative water fountain mid-patio—an ornate collectible acquired in Florida. Food preparation is concentrated within a specially designed semi-circular wall that creates an “outdoor kitchen” equipped with a 60” Viking barbecue grill, a prep sink, a warming drawer, refrigerator and appropriate storage. There is a granite surfaced dining counter with seating for eight. Wrought iron railing and approximately 20 decorative columns (some encasing steel vertical supports) are incorporated into the design scheme. Many of the columns house accent lights. The top level—supported by horizontal steel beams– is a 2,500 square foot deck constructed entirely of Trex decking. The open air decking is, again, directly accessible from rooms on the second level of the house including the kitchen, sunroom and family room. The platform’s most prominent feature is a U-shaped “kitchenette” with cedar shake shingle roofing. Like its counterpart one level below, the facility is equipped with grill, refrigerator and stainless steel cabinetry. One portion of the deck has been allocated for a 16’ x 16’ octagonal screened-in porch crowned by a pair of 2’ x 4’ skylights. The porch can be accessed from the home’s conservatory via a set of French doors. With its mosaic tile flooring, stained cedar panel ceiling and honed granite counters, the interior is elegant and calming. Hand-painted stenciling and a wall-mounted water feature provide distinctive detailing. Finally, the design introduced elements to highlight and reinforce an awareness of the lovely bucolic setting. Fountains and water features combined with textured surfaces and mosaic tiling and backsplashes to present a villa-like ambiance well-suited to the Virginia countryside.

Can Xomeu Rita es una pequeña vivienda que toma el nombre de la finca tradicional del interior de la isla de Formentera donde se emplaza. Su ubicación en el territorio responde a un claro libre de vegetación cercano al campo de trigo y avena existente en la parcela, donde la alineación con las trazas de los muros de piedra seca existentes coincide con la buena orientación hacia el Sur así como con un área adecuada para recuperar el agua de lluvia en un aljibe. La sencillez del programa se refleja en la planta mediante tres franjas que van desde la parte más pública orientada al Sur con el acceso y las mejores visuales desde el porche ligero, hasta la zona de noche en la parte norte donde los dormitorios se abren hacia levante y poniente. En la franja central queda un espacio diáfano de relación, cocina y comedor. El diseño bioclimático de la vivienda se fundamenta en el hecho de aprovechar la ventilación cruzada en el interior para garantizar un ambiente fresco durante los meses de verano, gracias a haber analizado los vientos dominantes. Del mismo modo la profundidad del porche se ha dimensionado para que permita los aportes de radiación solar en el interior durante el invierno y, en cambio, genere sombra y frescor en la temporada estival. El bajo presupuesto con que contaba la intervención se manifiesta también en la tectónica del edificio, que muestra sinceramente cómo ha sido construido. Termoarcilla, madera de pino, piedra caliza y morteros de cal permanecen vistos como acabados conformando soluciones constructivas transpirables que aportan más calidez, confort y salud al hogar.

This deck in Southwest Austin was built in beautiful, low maintenance PVC AZEK decking in Kona from the Harvest Collection with a custom horizontal railing system. Whereas the norm in deck railing is often the use of vertical railing, Archadeck of Austin also turned up the urban appeal of the space and opened up the views by utilizing a horizontal railing design. The new deck also features a custom cedar freestanding pergola adding a shady spot and loads of charm to the space! To the farthest left side of the deck we also designed and installed a cedar privacy wall that helps subdue the neighbors view into the backyard and vice versa. All the framework of the pergola, and the deck posts are finished in rustic cedar adding warmth and richness to the entire space. Deck lighting by TimberTech and HardiePlank siding skirting finish off the perfection of this backyard space to a “T” and much to the happiness of the homeowner. Photos courtesy Archadeck of Austin.
