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.
The basic layout for this residence resembles that of the Carl Fisher Estate completed in 1926 broadly split into three sections – main house guest pavilion and service section. The main house is composed of living rooms bedrooms and a glass ventilated area giving an unobstructed view to beautiful large pool and the lagoon lying close to the house.
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 from the Australian designers Robinson Architects seems to the kind of house that proves just how great you can use glass steel and wood when decorating your interior. This two storey modern house is located on Sunshine Coast near Queensland and was meant for a retired couple but to be honest I could see myself or any other young fellows living in there just as great.
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?
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.
