Architecture and design firm Group 41 Inc. is proud to unveil the H House, a modern architectural residence whose design is informed by the crisp language of modernism and shaped by the principals of sustainability. In a city like San Francisco where a moratorium on demolition limits most construction projects to being creative renditions of a renovation, a new, ground-up construction is a rarity. Rectilinear and angular, the H House is architect/developer Joel Karr’s first ground-up development property and represents a welcomed opportunity to express Group 41’s own distinctive brand of modernist design.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsPhotographs by Ken Gutmaker & Eric Rorer Set in the hills above Noe Valley, the structure commands sweeping views of the Oakland Hills and the city skyline below. Surrounded by the typical mix of Edwardian, Victorian Italianate, and 1940 renovations, the H House takes a strong modernist stance while still respecting the scale and proportionality of its neighbors. From the street, the house is designed to be purposefully modest – a simple boxy two story structure. However, the deceivingly spacious residence cascades down the hill, making the most of a narrow and down sloping site. The graceful four-level, 4,500 square foot property boasts 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. A flexible floor plan allows the lower unit to serve as the perfect entertainment space or a separate unit. Beautifully tiered outdoor decks, terraces and gardens make the most of expansive views.

The striated swathes of mild steel weigh in at over 600 lbs but nevertheless glide effortlessly open, welcoming visitors into an atrium space, lined with polished black basalt. Black Stacked Slate Wall Adds Drama and Anchors Structure to the Hill A monolithic wall wrapped in panels of dramatic black, stacked slate pierces down through two stories, anchoring the structure to the steep hill. Visible in the main living spaces as well as along the exterior breezeway, the continuous feature wall lends majestic scale and proportion. Save this picture!Curvilinear Ceiling Adds Dramatic, Visual Interest “The only curvilinear elements in the entire home are the curved shapes of the ceiling plane and the lighting rail,” explains Joel Karr, founder and principal of Group 41. “They’re meant to soften the planar feel of the ceiling as you enter the house because the living room steps down and ‘away’ from your point of view and the ceiling becomes an incredibly powerful visual element in the main living space.” With the Ingo Maurer “Oh Mei Ma” fixture in the foreground of a double high atrium entry, the impact of the subtle curvatures makes a compelling first impression. Save this picture!All-White Master Bath acts as Gleaming Blank Canvas The inspiration behind the stunning all-white master bath was to create an absolutely colorless room that was neither “feminine” nor “masculine” but would take on the unique character of the owners. The white oasis was achieved by covering many surfaces with Thassos marble, Inalco white panel tiles, glossy white lacquered vanity elements and Spanish white “bubbles” tile. The white vision is completed with a floating “island” tub on a mat of white glass pebbles and a wall-hung Philippe Starck toilet. Save this picture!Beauty comes in all shades of green Behind the clean lines of H’s modern architecture, thoughtful design decisions were made to utilize sustainable products and practices. Sustainable materials and systems were integrated into the design whenever possible. Rather than solid exotic wood doors or floors, the design incorporates eco-friendly flooring made from pressed timber scraps and macassar ebony engineered veneer finishes made from recycled sawdust. The home also boasts a state-of-the-art high-efficiency HVAC system and is built to ultimately accommodate solar panels to help make the home energy independent. Additionally, Group 41 implemented a construction waste program from demolition through completion that reduced the amount of construction waste taken to the landfill. For a full list of the home’s sustainable features, see attached sustainable features list. Save this picture!”It’s not enough for a home to be just beautiful,” quips Karr. “For me, a successful design is one that is both aesthetically challenging and functionally perfect. Architecture must necessarily be sustainable in order for it to be timeless. There is no question of designing a luxury home without these features today.”Project gallerySee allShow lessImagining Recovery announces WinnersArticlesChildren’s Hospital Prototype / VisiondivisionArticles Share H house / Group 41 Houses CopyHouses•San Francisco, United States H house / Group 41Save this projectSaveH house / Group 41 “COPY” “COPY” Architects: Group 41 Area Area of this architecture project United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/23183/h-house-group-41 Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeGroup 41OfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan FranciscoHousesUnited StatesPublished on May 27, 2009Cite: “H house / Group 41” 27 May 2009.

For complete list of directions issued by the HC, please refer to the Order attached with this story.] * The State shall ensure that senior doctors in all the notified COVID hospitals visit the ward on regular basis in accordance with the instructions issued by the Government. * The State is directed to ramp up the testing by adopting the approved measures by associating private Labs or their technicians, or both. * It shall be mandatory for the sample collecting authority to obtain contact number, e-mail id, if any, apart from other details like age, address etc. at the time of taking samples, so that the result of the test can be communicated on e-mail, whatsapp etc. Such report be supplied in a time bound manner and in no event beyond 48 hours, bearing in mind the necessary protocols. * Wide publicity be given in the news, print and social media regarding testing that are to be conducted in walk-in kiosk in all the towns like Shimla, Mandi, Dharamshala, Kullu, Solan, Una, Hamirpur, Bilaspur etc. for the collection of samples during the pre-fixed time every day. * A dedicated helpline in all the COVID Hospitals be notified so that the family members, near and dear ones of the COVID patients can get in touch with such patients to know about his/her wellbeing etc. * Such patients, who are willing to afford, be permitted to have trained nursing attendant at their own costs as this would be a long way to reduce the burden on the hospital staff. * It be ensured that wrapping up of the dead body(ies) of those COVID patients, who unfortunately succumb to the disease, under no circumstances is/are carried out/done in the Ward and the body is removed immediately from the Ward. [NOTE: It may be noted that a letter petition has been sent to the Supreme Court, seeking its indulgence to issue directions/ guidelines for a “uniform protocol” to deal with dead bodies in hospitals and mortuaries throughout the country. The representation has been made by former Union Law Minister, Dr. Ashwani Kumar, in the backdrop of ‘heart wrenching’ incident in a UP hospital reported across media, showing a dog nibbling away at the remains of a dead girl dumped on a stretcher in a corridor inside a hospital.] * It be ensured that the toilets are kept in clean and hygenic condition round a clock and a dedicated helpline be provided to the patients, in case, they have any complaint regarding not only the toilets but other facilities. * The State may also consider making COVID test mandatory for the people entering the State from the outside. * The rules regarding the wearing of mask, social distancing and quarantine be strictly enforced by associating not only the local police but also by engaging the employees of the Municipal Corporation, Home Department and local volunteers. It be ensured that no person or family is ostracised by the Society only because the family is COVID positive. [NOTE: the High Court of Orissa, in August 2020 disposed of a PIL filed by Advocate Ananga Kumar Otta against disclosure of personal details/ identities of Covid patients. The bench of Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq and Justice S. Pujahari held that the State has to uphold the right to privacy of the patients by preserving their identities. The High Court had cautioned the authorities to ensure that in case they reveal the identity of a Covid patient/ suspect, the same is done in accordance with the law, i.e., it satisfies the ‘Triple test’ as laid down by the Supreme Court in the right to privacy judgment (KS Puttaswamy & Anr. v. Union of India & Ors.) Also, the Supreme Court on Thursday (03rd December) reserved judgment in the plea which has challenged the decision of various states Governments to affix posters outside the homes of COVID19 patients who are in isolation. On December 1, top court had observed that the practice of conspicuously affixing posters outside the residence of COVID19 positive patients creates stigma and often leads to a situation where patients may be treated as so called “untouchables”.] * No social or public gathering shall be permitted henceforth without the prior approval of the Magistrate with intimation to the local police station who shall then be duty bound to ensure that such gathering does not exceed the prescribed limit. In addition thereto, it shall also be the duty and responsibility of the office bearers of the Panchayati Raj Institutions and local urban bodies, as the case may be, to ensure that the protocols and procedures including wearing of mask, social distancing, home isolation, public gathering etc. are strictly adhered to. * The general public be educated about COVID19 by hoardings, messages through Radio, T.V., booklets etc. by convincing them that it is a collective fight by the society and no one should violate the regulations, procedures and protocols. * The people should also be educated about the infection of the Corona, its prevention and treatment. xxii. Similar exercise shall be taken by all the Secretaries, State Legal Services Authority at their own level and through the PLV’s etc. * The Director General of Police is directed to depute extra police personnel(s) from the battalion and other places so as to ensure that no one unnecessarily leaves or enter the containment zones. * All those involved in COVID duties irrespective of their rank and files, are restrained from going on strike/dharna and, in case, any one of them have any difficulty, then they are at liberty to approach this Court individually or through the learned Amicus Curiae for redressal thereof, but under no circumstances they would resort to arm twisting by resorting to strike or dharna. * In case, any one of them resort(s) to such mis-adventure, then in addition to any other action, which respondentsState may take including blacklisting the firm(s), terminating the services of such employees, he/they shall be liable to be prosecuted and punished for contempt under the Contempt of Courts Act, for deliberately disobeying the directions of the Court. * Adequate provisions be made for diet, rest etc. for those who have been deputed in connection with COVID-19 duties and if found necessary, assistance of NGOs, Charitable Institutions may be taken. The matter has been posted for further hearing on Thursday (10.12.2020).Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
