This single family modern residence by Open Y Office is great on many levels. I love the glass walls on the ground floor. I am sure the ground floor is the common areas while the upper level houses the bedrooms and bathrooms. The concrete look of stucco, I am guessing, works well with the wood and glass exterior elements. The shelving built off of the steel frame is very clever. Nicely done!
The Cresta by Jonathan Segal is most positively a dream house. The concrete architecture that went in to this home is characterized by open volumes. These open volumes are blurred by bringing the outside in with large sliding walls of glass. On some levels the home has a brutalist feel. The Paul Evans dining table helps with the whole brutalism feel as well. I love the last arial photo, is provides a good idea of how the how is situated in the neighborhood. I am willing to bet some of the neighbors were not to thrilled.
Next time I am in Belgium and needing to stay at a modern bed and breakfast I will be sure to look this place up. CAAN Architects is responsible for this nice little modern box. I love the simple cube with a few walls of glass. The parking underneath is particularly nice and in the neighborhood of carportesque. Simple in concept with beautiful results.
This concrete and glass modern home by Attilio Panzeri in Switzerland is quite stunning. I love the juxtaposition of the thick concrete structure and the transparent walls of glass. They are quite different materials but work so nicely together much like opposites do. For a home with a mostly concrete structure I am impressed with the amount of natural light that flows through it. I really like the sleekness and minimal approach to the kitchen. My favorite room has to be the second picture. The owners have a great design aesthetic.
Last January I had the opportunity to visit and interview Ron Green who owns “thee” mid century modern furniture store in Salt Lake City called The Green Ant. I recently came across a house tour of a nice MCM house that was beautifully curated and the house happened to be owned by Ron himself. I guess I wouldn’t expect anything less than to see so many amazing vintage pieces under one roof. If you are ever in SLC make sure to stop by The Green Ant, they have a great selection.
I don’t think I would have to be near a lake to live in this amazing modern lake house. I could put this structure just about anywhere and be very content. The house resides in the blue ridge mountains overlooking a mountain lake. I love the extended eves and the wood under them. With all of those glass walls I bet the view is breathtaking. I do wish we could have seen more of the interiors but I guess people need their privacy.
