In an attempt to keep out all that noise and pollution even while giving those inside complete privacy architects came up with a distinct wooden façade that features a curved wall along with a series of other small wall-like sections.
An OBBA creation this fabulous home is set at the foot of a mountain range and overlooks a large water reservoir that is just a stone’s throw away. With a fruit and vegetable garden on one side and a curated landscape on the other this is a home that is all about reconnecting with nature!
A glass pergola roof connects the main living area with the guest rooms while a central courtyard along with the pool and the garden interlink the separate units. A double height living area opens up to the outdoors with large glass doors and sweeping wooden windows allowing those inside to switch between unabated views and complete privacy.
A smart platform provides solid base for the home and is integrated with the living room fireplace chimney and the concrete seating next to it. The platform extending beyond the confines of the living area acts as a natural patio and connects the interior with the outdoors in a seamless fashion.
The main volume of the house in concrete and standing on steel columns contains two different levels and house the living area along with the main bedrooms. An entirely different volume contains the guest bedrooms along with the fabulous sauna and home spa.
There comes a point in everyone’s life when the rush of urban life starts to wear you down and all those miles over the years start to take a toll on both your body and mind. Designed as a second home for an elderly couple that lives in offers a secluded and comfortable retreat that blends a rustic exterior with polished modern interior.
The limited footprint of the constructed area coupled with a need to design a home that left as much of the forest land as untouched as possible meant Storm Architects opted for a simple stylish and elegant modern structure. With a timber frame and larch cladding that is interlaced with large glass windows and modern finishes the home seems both classic and contemporary at the same time.
