The Little Big House is located upon the eastern slopes of Mount Wellington, high above Hobart. At 450 meters above sea level, set within a forested landscape, this house encounters snow in the winter months.  Save this picture!© Megan BaynesThe siting of the residence is mindful of its context; positioned close to and perpendicular to the curvilinear road.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe house, on a vacant lot between established houses and gardens, is defensive and diagrammatic.Tucked carefully between cadastral constraints and a magnificent birch tree, the footprint has been kept deliberately small. The dwelling is stacked across two levels which step to accommodate the undulating terrain.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingIt’s just a box. A clean volume with two exceptions; a service core and an entry air-lock. Walls, floors and ceilings in the main space are treated uniformly, in white, to create a simple light interior. The entry, kitchen and bathroom spaces are designed to be deliberately, theatrically small and are finished in black, in contrast to the larger white volume.Save this picture!Flor Plan 00Save this picture!Floor Plan 01The house is designed to be intensely private. Given the cool climate, the house has two essential strategies – to hold the heat and find the light.Apertures are purposefully positioned to create pure window types opening to either garden, sky or shadow.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe Little Big House is clad in vertical unfinished timber continuing traditions of local vernacular building in Southern Tasmania. The front door entry is set back and this timber remains golden in contrast to the remaining façade which has silvered with time. Each piece of timber is finished with a handmade z flashing to ensure the longevity of the façade.Polycarbonate cladding on the eastern and western facades render luminous shadow walls which enable the house to be concurrently light and contained.At ground level views are limited to that of the immediate garden to the north. Living and dining functions occur alongside an elongated strip window.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingLong views to the Southern horizon are only revealed from the mezzanine level which provides sleeping spaces.The house has three full height vents which stand ajar in the summer months providing natural cross ventilation. A wood fire provides a ceremonial hearth and heats the home.Save this picture!© Megan BaynesA small home with big volumes, the house is a bespoke building in a cool climate. Eschewing many of the traditions of Australian architecture, this house is distinctly Tasmanian.Project gallerySee allShow lessLast Call for Entries: 2018 A’ Design Awards & CompetitionOpportunitiesZechner & Zechner Create a Mixed-Use Complex Beside Peter Behrens’ Modernist IconUnbuilt Project Share CopyHouses•Wellington Park, Australia Little Big House / Room11 Architects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area:  160 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Room11 Architects Area Area of this architecture project Australia Projects 2010 Photographs:  Ben Hosking, Megan Baynes Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs Little Big House / Room11 ArchitectsSave this projectSaveLittle Big House / Room11 Architects Houses ArchDaily “COPY” Save this picture!© Ben Hosking+ 15Curated by María Francisca González Sharelast_img read more

Goal Accomplished

first_imgAt 54, Becky Griffin was the oldest University of Georgia student on the Griffin campus to be awarded a degree this fall, but that fact only fueled her drive to succeed.After putting her graduate studies on hold for 30 years, Griffin juggled a full-time job and put thousands of miles on her car to complete her master’s degree. The mother of two adult daughters, both of whom are UGA graduates, Griffin was encouraged to finish her degree by Kris Braman, a former UGA Griffin researcher who now heads the UGA Department of Entomology.“Deciding to go back to school after 30 years was a huge decision. When I told Dr. Kris Braman why I didn’t have a master’s degree, she said, ‘Well, we need to fix that.’ She encouraged me to apply, helped me map out a plan and served as my major professor throughout this process. She was the first person on my team,” Griffin said.Serving as the student speaker at the UGA-Griffin fall graduation celebration on Dec. 13, Griffin credited the members of her personal and academic support system for helping her finish her master’s degree in plant protection and pest management with an emphasis in entomology.“Getting through college is a team effort. Every graduate here is the result of a team and I am proud of all of us,” she said. “The University of Georgia is one of the top colleges in the nation, and being a graduate of this university is something I don’t take lightly.”Griffin said she was encouraged by “Team Griffin,” her affectionate term for her supporters, including her husband, Millard; her daughters, Allison and Mady; Braman and a host of others.“Allison sent me a finals care package, something I did for her when she was in college,” said Griffin, proudly informing the crowd that Allison is a double Dawg with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UGA. Both of Griffin’s daughters were residents in the same dorm she lived in when she first attended UGA. “Mady and Allison sent me flowers, proofread papers and listened to way too many entomological facts.”A resident of Holly Springs, Griffin travels across the state as community and school garden coordinator for UGA Cooperative Extension. While pursuing her master’s degree, there were days when she left home at 4:30 a.m. in order to attend a lab on the UGA Tifton campus.“I’ve listened to lectures from McDonald’s and Chick-fil-A restaurants while traveling for my job,” she said. “The Atlanta Food Bank even set aside a room for me, so I could listen to lectures before work meetings.”When she returned to classes, Griffin showed up with a spiral notebook, pencil and index cards in hand. The other students quickly explained to her that she could do all of her work online.“As an older person, I soon found myself giving the younger students advice and even job recommendations. My fellow students are amazing. They have enriched my life and I have learned from them,” Griffin said.Griffin valued the experience of learning from UGA researchers who are leading experts in their fields, such as UGA entomologist David Buntin, who explained how hessian flies affect grain crops, a lesson based on his own research.“This is why you want to go to UGA. You don’t sit in a classroom learning about (other experts’) research; you are learning from the person who is doing the research,” Griffin said.Griffin’s UGA CAES colleagues were also there to help, she said, recalling a day when UGA turfgrass specialist Clint Waltz spent hours tutoring her on a math problem.“He was a part of my team,” she said. “And, when I was at a farmers’ conference and pulled out my textbook to try to understand how to calibrate a sprayer, several of my farmer friends stepped up to explain it to me. They had no idea they were on Team Griffin.”Teary-eyed, Griffin told the graduates that all the effort to earn her degree was worth it when she was finally able to walk under the arch and ring the chapel bell.“We are all so much more capable then we think we are, but we need a team to do it,” she said.Marie Green Broder, chief assistant district attorney for the Griffin Judicial Circuit, served as guest speaker for the UGA-Griffin event.Also a UGA alum, Broder told graduates their UGA degrees will be tools that they will use throughout their careers. Recounting a time when she, the youngest person in her office, was asked to step into a leadership role, Broder encouraged graduates to go out into the world and be leaders.“For those of you who are entering the field of agriculture, you will have a remarkable chance to impact one of the biggest industries in the state, and one that desperately needs help,” said Broder, whose family includes cattle farmers. “The farming population is aging quickly. Agriculture in Georgia needs young, vibrant minds and voices. Answer the call and lead this industry into the next generation. Society desperately needs real voices with conviction and passion.”For more about degree programs offered at UGA-Griffin, visit read more
