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.
Designed for two real estate professionals and their two sons the Jarson Residence by Will Bruder + Partners rises as a quiet and imposing structure from the desert surrounding it. Overlooking the McDowell Mountains to the north east this spectacular dream home is dressed in a skin made of weathered steel and cooper pierced by large glazed areas. The cladding fabricates a strong connection to the surroundings while the glass walls and windows framing the views construct a lighthouse effect during the night when the lights are turned on.
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!
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.
In the initial phase the architects from Scott Allen have completed 12 spectacular homes all within 2000 square feet to 4000 square feet area. But the site could occupy as many as 75 residential sites. The layout of the residences is marvelous as well as modest and conforms to traditional Pacific design. All units exhibit an aesthetic outlook and have been designed giving priority to utility.
Though the house looks smaller from the street you could assess it from a significant distance. To know the beauty of wood in construction you should visit this house. Wooden slabs are wonderfully arranged spectacularly painted in superior wood touch. This brings in more elegance to this building.
Located in a windy landscape it offers a warm stay around the year. Full height glass walls bring exterior into interior of this house. The exterior of this landlocked location is blessed with beautiful natural terrain- hills valleys and marvelous façade.
