Designer Spotlight | Resolution: 4 Architecture
Today we journey into Resolution: 4 Architecture’s modern prefabricated homes. The small critical practice was founded by Joseph Tanney and Robert Luntz in 1990. The ten-person firm consciously works to enhance sustainable practices that address the current and long-term challenges facing our dynamic communities. In doing so, they created the Modern Modular, a systematic design methodology that leverages existing methods of prefabrication for residential construction. Let’s take a look inside RES4’s designs that have been featured in numerous architectural journals!
What do you get when you have an island located off the coast of Connecticut and Rhode Island, yet occupying a body of water in New York? One difficult construction, made simple with prefabrication! The island is only accessible by ferry, requiring off-site construction to speed up the process.
Our favorite part: the kitchen. We love the seamless integration of natural and industrial elements with all the appliances built into the cabinetry. RES4 ensured clutter-free Concrete countertops by implementing storage at every corner. The large island even includes a book case on one side and a wine fridge on the other!
Mirror mirror on the wall, who has the largest shower of them all? RES4 created this HUGE shower with a wall of Caesarstone.
From an island to the woods, RES4 is ready with their prefabricated boxes. The Catskills Suburban occupies a small clearing and was created from local materials. The Lagos Blue waterfall-edge island perfectly blends into the rustic design.
Can you count the number of tiles on the wall? The bathroom offers a pop of color with its walls of blue tiles and complementary Blizzard vanity.
As we make our way back to the city, we find ourselves in an apartment/ loft combination near Union Square. The communal kitchen is equipped with everything you might need: a large refrigerator, a coffee station, and lots of Blizzard counter space.
The space is kept light and airy with large windows overlooking the bustling city streets. With a room like this, why leave?
RES4 ventured from the city to the eastern end of Long Island, Dune Road to be exact. The beach house is located right on the ocean, riding the crest of the dune. If the sound of the waves wasn’t relaxing enough, just sink into the Blizzard-surrounded bath and look off into the distance.
The hills are alive with the sound of music and a RES4 home! The High Peak Meadow House is situated on an open field with views of surrounding mountains. As you can build quite the appetite from running in the fields and hiking up local trails, a large kitchen is a must! The storage-filled cabinets are topped with Lagos Blue counters and created to perfection.
Last on our tour is a home positioned as close as can be to Lake Losco in New Jersey. The linear north-south composition is complemented with sunrise and sunset decks to the east and west. Just imagine having your morning coffee at your Blizzard island or on the deck overlooking the lake. Sounds like a dream!
When you’re not overlooking the lake, you’re looking over the tree-lined woods! Plus, the expansive kitchen has not one but two Blizzard waterfall-edge islands to make it the perfect entertainment home.
We don’t know about you, but we’re ready for our prefab house!
