Residential Design – The QuaDror House

Hello again readers,

I saw this product featured in Dwell magazine and it intrigued me enough to want to use it in a design. The QuaDror Support system was created by the Industrial designer Dror Benshetrit as an alternative to the traditional lally column used to support most buildings today. His system combines 4 V-Shaped pieces to create a sawhorse-like buttress that will hold the weight of the floor above it.

In addition to the structural system, Dror also created a desk that mimics the same sawhorse design. Both the desk and the support system were used in my design.

Unlike the prefab houses that were shown in the Dwell article, my design is considerably more custom. My house has 3 bedrooms/3.5 baths with luxury amenities such as an elevator, infinity edge pool, game room, finished basement rec room, separate office, 2 fireplaces, and a carport for 2 cars. The house uses 5 QuaDror support trestles (4 in the basement and 1 on the ground floor). I tried to integrate them as much as possible into the living spaces as you can see from the photos in the gallery below. The study is supported completely by one trestle leaving the space underneath open for a carport. The movie I created of the house will give you a good view of the 2 most evident trestles.
