Built by Denieuwegeneratie this exceptional semi-underground residence named Mountain House comes with its own mountain – created as an artificial hill to camouflage the residence on the northern side. Located in a nature reserve the Dutch Mountain House measures 12 x 19 meters of bright open interiors. An interesting flexible structure on the inside allows the space to be compartmentalized according to the family’s needs. Wooden structures ensure that a future space rearrangement would be easy and creative.
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.
Architectural studio Moon Hoon with offices in Seoul designed an angled residential retreat in Korea. Featuring a distinct facade shaped out of several angled volumes the Panorama House gathers vistas of the surroundings through different-sized windows that frame the views from each room in a new and creative way.The angled facade allows views from different perspectives and strongly connects the interiors to the surrounding suburb.
By choosing a color palette that would compliment the surroundings, the architects dissolved the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and prolonged the dynamic coastline inside. An open floor plan allowed the creation of an L-shaped cooking/living/entertaining zone open to the outside deck and swimming pool. And also check out the Bloom Chair by Kenneth Cobonpuere featured a while back on Decoist – it looks amazing in this house!
Located on a hillside the modern Korean house is home to a family with four children who needed a comfortable creative space to grow. The creative interior design features the ground level social areas and the upstairs bedrooms while a fantastic feature ties it all together – a huge wooden staircase with nooks and integrated bookshelves that also serves as a viewing platform for a projection screen. The Panorama House is a dream home for children and adults alike.
The split level house features the master bedroom half way between the public space and the children’s quarters. Resulting in an L-shaped floor plan with the master suite cantilevering in the middle the Hasharon House benefits from a large garden and a set of interiors perfectly suited for the inhabitants. Not far from being an ideal place to raise children this contemporary home is welcoming and can be given as an example of modern residential architecture.
An array of tall trees serves as natural canopy protecting it from the semi tropical climate which becomes harsh during April to May. The house features a contemporary residential design and an infinity pool near the entry courtyard receives you into this magnificent house.
