Point Wells Gables

Residential

Practice : GPA and Steven Lloyd Architecture

Location : Point Wells

Status : Completed 2015

This beautifully crafted timber dwelling sits on a site alongside an estuarine tendril of Omaha River. The home derives its outer form from the gabled barn of the rural vernacular, however the architectural language has been abstracted and extended. The house is a three-part play, and the main act is comprised of two separate wings, running north to south, that are connected by a significant pier or boardwalk running east to west. This elongated boardwalk is a key organising element of the two buildings and also a key device to the arrangement of the exterior, with various outdoor spaces in between the volumes of the main house – and the gabled guest wing that provides a bookend to these structures – placed to take advantage of the sun’s changing movements.
