International New Architecture Magazine has published PARAVANT Architects' design for the Swiss Embassy in Yaoundé, Cameroun, in their October 2012 issue. The design is a unique dialectic pairing of a highly public and representational buil
ding with extraordinarily sensitive requirements concerning privacy and security. The design of the compound uses the courtyard building type to address the need for privacy and security while also expressing the vernacular thoughts towards space, light and air that is typical in this region.

The natural surroundings of the neighborhood is host to many features that go along with green living such as; pedestrian and bike paths, community gardens, composting and recycling areas, native vegetation, large areas of undeveloped natural space, and storm water collection. These features allow the development to have a reduced impact on the natural elements of the area making it a sanctuary for wildlife, and a great place to live for people and families in all stages of all life. Sustainability is also a major consideration of “Living at New West Lake”. Both active and passive ideas are brought to the design of each building and planning of the community as a whole. Passive elements like thermal massing from building materials and the lake help to mitigate temperature extremes within the living environments, while active elements such as geothermal, solar hot water and photovoltaic contribute to the community’s generation of renewable energy and ultimately their annual “net zero energy” goal.

PARAVANT Architect' s approach to the design was to reconnect the main house to the detached building with an emphasis on the existing courtyard space and to spatially and visually bring the adjacent yard into the entire house with large windows and doors that can control fresh air and natural light. The images show the current construction stage and the buildings prior to the residential remodel in Pasadena, CA. The hard-scape including a fire pit and landscape will be installed shortly.
