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.
The most attractive feature of this house is its location. Contrary to usual sites like lake’s shore or urban areas the site of this house gives access to lots of privacy and calmness. Designers haven’t compromised on quality or beauty on account of the remoteness of its location. Interiors are made as wonderful as its exterior. Wooden floors concrete walls curtains and amazing furnishing altogether give a luxurious living experience.
Supported by a steel and concrete skin the interior volumes containing the living and resting spaces can be rearranged by adding or removing rooms. By using locally sourced lark timber to dress up the facade the architects embedded the modern architecture into the surrounding landscape.
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 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.
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.
Situated in the outskirts of Cape Town in South Africa the residence has been designed to get a wonderful view of the mesmerizing sea and the beautiful mountains. The house built as a sequence of the nearby Nettleton 195 gets its design from Cape Town based studio SAOTA aka Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects.
