This floating modern house isn’t literally floating but with the lower level walls being mostly glass you get the feeling of the upper level just hovering. Talk about exploiting the view, HHF did an amazing job at capitalizing on the views offered by the natural landscape. The owner has their priorities straight with having ample storage for his shoe collecting habits. I love the angled doors echoing the line of the ceilings.
“It is oriented parallel to the landscape, making the view a matter of prime importance. One can gaze over more than 180 degrees of unbuilt, verdant land full of mature fruit trees. HHF radically exploits this situation, thematizes it, and accentuates it even more with a few simple moves: The main level – composed of the kitchen, dining, and living areas – as well as the stair to the upper and lower floors are open spaces, entirely glazed and blending seamlessly with the outdoors.”
