THE BILLBOARD HOME

The Billboard Home’s entire exterior wall is an image drawn from a “palette” of painting fragments, which are digitally printed on the metal cladding of the two solid end walls, creating startling imagistic interventions in the otherwise predominantly horizontal landscape. The house is an image in the landscape; an image inside of an image, like a small painting inset into a larger one.

Our idea was to make a house and studio complex for an artist (myself) and his family. The views are relatively un-obstructed, and the house is designed to bring as much of the view inside as possible. The structure is intended to support a life both active and contemplative: reading, writing, painting, outdoor activities, socializing all have designated area. In addition, we wanted to dedicate entire exterior walls to the “function” of pure image: images drawn from a “palette” of painting fragments can be digitally printed on the metal cladding of the two solid end walls, creating startling imagistic interventions in the otherwise predominantly horizontal landscape. The house is an image in the landscape; an image inside of an image, like a small painting inset into a larger one.

The design concept began by looking at a modular element that fits inside of shipping containers, that can also be combined to create pleasingly proportioned living spaces. The basic framework can be combined and multiplied to create generous living spaces: one, two, or three bedrooms, living/dining room, kitchen, study, bathrooms, covered outdoor space, or a mixture of all programs.

Ultimately, we created two basic modules that would house the basic elements of the house’s program: the “wet” areas and the “dry” areas. The basic wet module contains the kitchen, which shares a structural wall with the bathrooms and laundry. The wet modules have a spine of plumbing and electrical services that support the adjacent dry modules.
