The Nettleton 199 project partner Greg Truen states the task was to create a building which would give a maximum view of the sea and to create a garden beside the mountain located near the site. They also wanted minimal exposure to the neighboring buildings. The residence overlooks the Atlantic Ocean to the west and its design gives prime-most importance to privacy such that it offers least vision to neighboring houses.
Here’s a masterpiece work from Wespi de Meuron Architects — a renovated house located in Treia Marche a rarely domesticated village in Italy. Italy is a traditionally rich land and has given birth to lots of famous architects. Renovation has got multiple implications; natural resource management being the most prominent. In 1995 this building caught fire and was damaged. Since then it has been under the surveillance of the municipal authority.
The extremely high ceilings in the living area make a roomy and grandiose statement. The hanging globe lamps accentuate this height even further. The flight of stairs with a landing is neatly placed against a wall that occupies a minimum of space allowing full use of the ground floor without a big visual intrusion.
Large glass walls allow a spectacular view to the outside greenery while letting sunlight to enter into the house during daytime. There is a steel-cum-wood stairs to connect the two levels of this sharp-cornered spiral house. A slight inclination is provided to the roof for easy drainage of rainwater which also helps minimizing heat loss due to radiation from the interiors to a significant extent. Overall the house in the forest seems to be a brilliant concept.
This residence enhances its airy and spacious layout with plenty of cross-ventilation. The glass covered breakfast room offers a scintillating view to Indian Creek and the morning sun. It has a guest pavilion that is beautifully furnished with superior furniture and is really outstanding in every respect. Servants’ quarters garage secure space mechanical rooms and power plant are all housed in the service section. Do you like the design of this spectacular residence?
