The house appears to be a brilliant option from an economical point of view. It utilizes every scope for natural methods of power conservation like natural cross ventilation a geo-thermal heating and cooling system and the double-paneled roof. These facilities ensure cool and nice living for residents in this house. Also energy charges could be trimmed down significantly.
According to the architect team remodeling was done on the parent building to increase the living space. They included four luxurious bedrooms and a large entertainment area in the original building. Since the original building was flat-roofed a vertical expansion was a viable option for the future. With the sliding and stacking doors and glassy windows the difference between internal and external areas are dissolved considerably giving the home an urban feel while retaining natural openness.
Geometries are brilliantly selected to make the building spacious enough out of a given limited area. Horizontal hinges are an example of their innovation and the hinges make the wooden pallets to shrink horizontally. This provides a large opening into the outer world despite the limited interior. Care has been given in every step of the Ame Lot Project to avoid stress on the ecology. And the Ame Lot seems to be an epitome of eco-friendly design.
The neutral shade selected for its walls impart warmth and luxurious outlook to this outstanding edifice. Architects succeeded in imparting an urban touch to this years-old structure. The pool expensive furniture glass wall carpets and lighting all have contributed significantly to redefine its old-fashioned outlook.
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.
Built on urban space the Ame Lot is being praised for being ecologically well-disposed. There wasn’t any reconstruction but just some modifications to the one which already existed. This makes the Ame Lot project extremely brilliant.
Besides the private spaces the common living and entertaining zones gather the family together in a carefully designed atmosphere. Overlooking agricultural fields in the backside the house was created to protect the inhabitants’ privacy while offering them private views over the quiet relaxing surroundings.
