Brought in to radically alter the damp and dark interior of this classic home Glen Thomas Architecture turned to a contemporary extension with a distinct 9-meter long glass roof to get the job done.
Simplicity a flood of natural light and a neutral color scheme are the trademark of this relaxing modern home with an all-white backdrop creating a feeling of spaciousness. The makes most of every inch on offer even as the open living area with kitchen and dining in the corner acting as the social zone.
The path to this door is long and winding and takes you through a lush green landscape that fills one with a sense of joy and tranquility. On the inside though the natural landscape yields to polished contemporary surfaces that are largely draped in white.
Concrete is the material off choice on the inside with the three inimitable curved ceiling structures in raw concrete standing in contrast to the polished concrete floor. The repetitive concrete ‘vaults’ capture the Northern sunlight beautifully and fill the interior with bright daylight.
Designed by architect Cristián Izquierdo this remarkable House in Morrillos Chile is made entirely in pinewood. In a seasonal cabin constructed to accommodate up to three couples the exposed expansive pinewood offers a clean verging on sterile environment. And yet the result is both inviting and engaging.
Sitting in between the horse stables and the training and exhibition field the cantilevered design of the three structures also allows for free passage of traffic below. The first volume acts as the roof for the main terrace while the second houses the bedrooms. It is the third volume that contains the guest bedrooms and other social spaces.
All the four homes share a common terrace that also contains walkways that weave through the thick vegetation and provide stunning views of the scenery outside. Apart from the expansive deck each house has a cross-shaped floor plan with the living area bedroom entrance and bathroom all enjoying a wonderful view of the many sights and sounds outside. Living among the treetops becomes even more tranquil with the natural interiors eliminating any unnecessary disturbances and the décor being kept simple minimal and unassuming.
