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.
There is no doubt that the plain landscape of La Gorce Island in Miami Beach Florida is probably one of the most beautiful places for a fancy villa in the whole country. The private residence shows a range of architectural vibrancy in design.
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.
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 house has got a texture of pre-enlightenment period but with all modern facilities. The renovated building was inaugurated in 2010. The soul of the old house has been kept intact with its historical aperture dimensions and proportions untouched. Interior walls are supra-smooth and could reflect light well. This helps save power bill significantly and interiors looks awesome under modern illumination.
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.
Stretching across an area of 4589 square feet this wonderful two storey building has the main living room as well as the master suite on the second level. This allows you to have a full coverage of the exciting outdoor view. The house is an exemplary example of using wood in house construction.
