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.
Once inside, spacious interiors, seemingly endless white walls, minimalist furniture arrangements and generously-sized glass piercings set the tone for a modern-style home: “The entry defines a gallery that runs the length of the house, dividing the kitchen-dining room volume from the guest room-family room volume. The entry procession ends at the double-height master suite volume. An animated stairway overlooking the family room leads up to a catwalk between the guest rooms and a bridge to the media room”. How would you comment on the indoor-outdoor relationship of this project?
The structure is envisioned as an open space, airy and relaxed, so you can sit inside, enjoy a warm cup of coffee or you can find your spot in the courtyard, on the wooden deck. The deck comes as an extension to the new structure, emphasising the importance of a breezy living space.
