瑞士苏黎世,机械芭蕾 / Manuelherz建筑事务所

在苏黎世市中心的一个居住区,建筑师manuel herz设计了一个独特立面的住宅,这个立面由水平垂直向可活动的百叶组成。这座五户居民的建筑紧邻勒柯布西耶的“海蒂韦伯博物馆”,并参考了博物馆丰富多彩的金属面板和奇特的几何形状。该设计还从它田园式的环境中吸取灵感,周边环绕着许多植物和装置物体。

虽然manuel herz设计的规模和组织可以与该社区的其他住宅结构相媲美,但这座建筑的外观呈现出了非常与众不同的性格特征。建筑结构简单的几何形式与它动态的立面形成对比,也因此这个项目被命名为“机械芭蕾”。

该方案由水平和垂直方向的圆角三角形百叶窗组成,全部打开就形成可到达的有顶阳台。垂直方向的百叶闭合后会使房间变的昏暗,而打开时则提供隐私和亲密感。设计的适应性意味着一系列的临时空间可以根据一天中的时间或季节来被创造和使用。

采用液压机构安装了四种不同类型的立面元素:可以展开成为可进入式阳台的带有栏杆的可移动元素;用作遮阳设备的不带栏杆的可移动组件元素;提供永久性阳台的静态元素,以及与其他元素形状相同的静态封闭墙体部分。

当关闭时,建筑会呈现出一种统一的略带金属色的香槟色色调。然而,百叶的内部侧面有一个介于红色和蓝色之间的光谱。这意味着当立面被打开时,红色和蓝色的彩虹色感会赋予单色的建筑立面生气。在这一页顶部的视频中观看房子立面百叶的活动操作情况,在这里可以看到更多manuel herz关于designboom的作品。

in a residential part of central zurich, architect manuel herz has designed a house with a striking façade comprising operable horizontal and vertical louvers. the building, which contains five residences, is located in close proximity to le corbusier’s ‘heidi weber museum’ and references the institution’s colorful metal panels and striking geometry. the design also takes cues from its bucolic setting, which is filled with a surprising array of plants, installations, and objects.

although the scale and organization of manuel herz’s design is comparable to the neighborhood’s other residential structures, the building’s appearance takes on a very different character. the structure’s geometrically simple form is contrasted by its dynamic façade, which lends the project its name: ‘ballet mécanique’, or ‘mechanical ballet’.

the scheme comprises horizontal and vertical louvers with a rounded triangular shape, which unfold to become accessible balconies with corresponding roofs. the vertical louvers darken the rooms when closed, or provide privacy and intimacy when open. the adaptable nature of the design means that a series of temporary spaces can be created and used depending on the time of day or season.

using a hydraulic mechanism, four different types of façade elements have been installed: a moveable element with a railing that can unfold to become an accessible balcony; a moveable component without a railing that acts as a shading device; a static element that provides permanently accessible balconies; and static closed wall sections that have the same shape as the other elements.

when closed, the building presents a uniform champagne-colored, slightly metallic tone. however, the interior sides of the louvers feature a color spectrum that ranges between red and blue. this means that when the façade is opened up, a rainbow of red and blue animates the building’s otherwise monochrome façades. watch the house in action in the video at the top of this page, and see more work by manuel herz on designboom here.
