Jonathan Feldman talks about the house
What’s your favourite feature of the home? We love the way we’ve
open ed up the centre of the home, i nserted a ver tical sto ne- clad wall
with co n sidera ble tex tu re an d washed it with n atural light. This makes
the small stru ctu re light, airy an d ver y dyn amic as the light changes
throughout the day.
What are your tips for working on older homes? We really try to
study what qualities we most appreciate in the existing stru ctu re
so that we can u se these to inspire the elemen ts that we add. For
in stan ce, there was a lot of exposed fra ming that had a nice feel to it,
so we left some of the o riginal fra mi ng expo sed and even exposed
some of the framing in par ts of the n ew elements.
What kind of considerations need to be dealt with when you
are designi ng in an earthquake zone? Seismic design requires an
u ndersta nding of where to strategically place solid walls that will
stiffen the ho use to resist lateral forces. It’s no t so mu ch about spans
and columns but more about walls – making sure that they line up and
connect from roof to foundation is quite important.
