Becoming more and more concerned about the pragmatic aspects of our lives,most of us have inclined in the favour of the cities or towns and started to forget what an escape can the nature offer us. Therefore a crib in the woods is no longer an option. People frequently choose to settle in modern wood and glass homes, which are a worthier alternative. This 2.000 sq feet single family detached home, a finalist project of the 2011 Georgie Awards, will probably make you reconsider your options and perhaps it will even make you feel like returning in the middle of the nature. Being an excellent example of a rustic home, it has a very low carbon footprint. What is more, the whole material for this construction is entirely natural. So it is a house in the woods made from woods!
As a welcoming sign,the massive wooden deck lays powerfully in front of the cabin. To empower the exterior even more, the wooden surfaces merge with hard stone into the foundation and indoors,in the fireplace as well. The pine blocks from inside the house give the design an original touch. The colour of the wood instate the ambience with warmth and hospitality. Edged angles enrich the simpleness of the bedroom design, a rustic and yet present-day kitchen and a wide living room confer the establishment a nature-like appearance. And as if it was not enough, the house is surrounded by a splendid lake,just to make the view perfect. So, what would you choose, a penthouse or a rustic cabin?
3.Halffloors by Pedro Brito
This establishment is defined by minimalism characteristics only, being a perfect definition of “less is more”. Even though it may appear to be impersonal at first, the artlessness of both exterior and interior offer the inhabitants the prospect of asserting their own selves, the neutral design promising to permit them to “put on the dog”.
The minimal architecture distinguishes itself by the existence of perpendicular planes that confer a three dimensional impression to the space, from an arranagement volume of pristine shapes,significantly simpler and polished.
The house consists in three exterior accessfull areas, two car garage with car lift, one dining room, three bedrooms and one large living room, each of them purposeful. The universal lines of the crib are mainly organized in a vertical and hierarchical order. To procure brilliant visual magnitude and forceful linkages amid surfaces, the interior was designed in half-floors.The breadth of the house is in fact the stair, which transformed itself in the heart of the entire place, connecting each level.
The general shading of the building is pregnantly light, the white colour monopolizing the whole place. The omnipresence of it acquires unity to the interior, and yet it needs some pinches of life in it,meaning the combination of red and black. Apparently in contrast with the predominant tone – white – the touches of red and black only complement the general ambient.
Looks as it has been taken from the future, don’t you think?
