Point King Residence by HASSELL

HASSELL have designed the Point King Residence in Portsea, Australia.



Point King Residence is located at Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. The site is characterised by its cliff top location and orientation towards the north. The entire house sits almost two metres below ground level, limiting the visual bulk of the building when viewed from other parts of Point King and the Mornington Peninsula. It is a strategy that deals with the scale of the building and links it to the site.

The house has been designed as a slatted timber box overlaying a limestone base. Nestled into the rear of a sloping block, the ground floor anchors the house, allowing the second floor to ‘float’, suggesting lightness.

The ironbark timber facade will fade to a grey colour, mimicking the Moonah trees indigenous to the area. The limestone base references a nearby heritage-listed limestone kiln.

It is designed to bring family and friends together in a beach setting, while allowing the owners to rest and relax in privacy. The planning approach divided the house into three zones – shared, private and living.

The three zones are circled around a central entrance space that mimics the kind of courtyard sometimes seen in a European village. This provided the core planning approach adopted by the HASSELL design team.

Generously scaled rooms foster light and natural ventilation flows with ease. The interiors reflect the architecture of the house, using limestone excavated from the site and recycled timber battens. The palette is sympathetic to the local climate and the client’s desire to ground the house, both physically and figuratively. Decorative elements provide a level of intimacy appropriate to the domestic setting.

Nissan Nismo Smartwatch Connects Driver to The Car

Nissan has released Nismo Smartwatch concept that will be the world’s first smartwatch to connect a driver to the car and provide them with real time biometric data. This is the first step from Nissan to enter the world of wearable technology and epitomizes its “fan first” approach to performance. What does Nismo do for drivers? Well, it monitors efficiency of vehicle with average speed and fuel consumption readings, accesses vehicle performance data while on track, captures biometric data through a heart rate monitor, connects the car to the smartphone app via Bluebooth, receives car messages from Nissan.

Wearable technology is becoming the next big thing, Gareth Dunsmore, Marketing Communications General Manager, explains that Nissan wants to take advantage innovative technology to make Nismo brand more accessible. The usage of latest biometric training technologies help improve performance of Nissan Nismo Athletes and enhance your driving experience with Nismo ownership.

2030 Rolls Royce Eidolon Concept Car with Omni Wheel Technology for Better Maneuverability

Futuristic 2030 Rolls Royce Eidolon concept car features unique seating layout to demonstrate how users can drive and interact within the vehicle, thanks to autonomous technology equipped in the car. It’s a design study that was inspired by the luxury brand as most wealthy people love to be seen in large luxury cars even though they have to face city maneuverability issues. This concept car solves the issues with omni wheel technology, it creases its dimensions without compromising its maneuverability.

Luxury cars usually feature long body which might cause problems when driving in the city. By applying advanced omni wheel technology, the wheelbase no longer dictates the maneuverability of a car, instead, now the car length determines city friendliness of the car. Turning radius of a standard sedan is around 11m, but with this technology, the radius becomes 0, even 6-meter long vehicle equipped with omni wheel would be more maneuverable compared to normal c-segment sedan.
