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.
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.
Its floor-to-ceiling windows overlook a swimming pool in the backyard. “This project is intended to be respectful of its established neighborhood while infusing a modern sensibility for aesthetics, functionality, ecology and technology,” the architect said.
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.
We absolutely love the interior arrangements, which combine wood, glass and stone for a lovely and inviting atmosphere. Through the large windows one can enjoy the magnificent sea views all around the island. The place is perfect for a holiday home, accommodating one or two families. Embedded in nature, this cozy getaway is said to be a peaceful alternative for life in urban areas. Anyone dares to contradict this statement ?
