Very nice. No indoor smoking, I assume.

Really want to have a drink there.

I'll take the lobby and a couple of rooms as my house, please.

Why would you be inside with a view like that. wink.gif


It's a 1900 acre development and it's not done yet.

You guys are all wrong on this one. It veers far too deeply into the beige tyranny of Architectual Digest.

You have a pretty splintered relationship with wood, don't you?

Someone can tell me about the structure of this house (the roof, the column, beam etc) How can the two small column can support a large, thick roof? And what cover the surface which on the right of the last photo?

post #1646 of 3695
I can't find a section to confirm, but the roof is most likely suspended from from two steel joists that run across the living room space. The joists are then supported by the structural steel fireplace and the white composite column. That allows the ceiling drywall or lathe to be bolted to a grid of either steel or wood battens that are set up directly under the joists. You can tell from the extended mass on the top of the roof that can be seen in the photos, which is then covered with insulation and some sort of lightweight cladding. It looks to be about three feet thick, so it's unlikely to have any other function but to enclose the joists.

I tend to agree. Probably a pretty large I/H beam running from each corner, with smaller cross sections going from the windowless wall out to the large beam. I'm not sure if the fireplace is part of the structure though - without calculating anything I reckon the white column would be enough. Especially considering the heavy back wall, which would be able to take up a lot of the forces from the roof.

I could definitely see just this as a single-family home, with the living rooms on the other side of the stone wall. Perhaps like the villas in your other post, except with the highest wall replaced by the stone wall.

I assume that the roof is made by some type of light-weight material. It's not armoured concrete roof, isn't it?

My guess would be some sort of steel space frame, with drywall and insulation "bolted" directly on to it.
