Wonderfully designed by , the Westbury Crescent Residence boasts two different architectural styles, creating a sharp contrast between the old and the new house. “The project is formally manipulated to sculpt atmospheric and functional light into designed spaces thus turning an originally introverted residence inside-out.”
Are you a fan of secluded homes? This amazing residence stands on the highest site of a mesmerizing island located several miles away from Stockholm, Sweden. Don’t let its traditional, otherwise picturesque exterior full you, this place is in tip top condition and ensures an ideal living space. Stretching on an area of 137 square meters, the main building includes a beautiful living room, a guest room with kitchen and glass doors leading out to large a bridge deck, a sauna and many more.
Even though the home has several windows and glass walls, their strategic placement in the front of the house allows for the residents’ privacy. Computer-programmed window shades, a hydronic heating system, a solar-powered water heater and photovoltaic panels also make it extremely energy efficient.
The Edgemoor Residence is located in a post-war neighborhood in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. Recently restored and redesigned by , the house displays plenty of contemporary details, without interfering with its exterior traditional look: “The original corner-lot house was torn down to the foundation walls and first floor deck, and rebuilt as a composition of both modern and traditional forms”. The gable roof is said to establish a dialogue with the nearby buildings.
The project entitled ‘The Glass House” consists of a traditional-like home adorned with modern extensions of glass. As a result, the house adopts a very contemporary look, inviting you into a bright and luminous interior. This project was completed in 2012, July, by the award-winning AR Design Studio, in Winchester, England. The clients (a couple) wanted to keep the traditional façade but they also wanted to add a touch of contemporary. The couple’s love for glass had a significant part in choosing the right design studio to deal with the renewal of the existing house.
