Is one such delightful beachside family escape that seems both inviting and refined thanks to the striking fusion of locally sourced timber hardwood with modernity by Ola Studio. Overlooking the beautiful coastline of Victoria this Aussie home seems to float effortlessly above the beach even as large windows connect it with the view on offer.
Designed by Cutler Anderson Architect this picturesque escape sits on an uncultivated lot inside the owner’s 88-acre vineyard. Blessed with captivating natural greenery and offering a magical window into the native flora and fauna arriving here as a guest is a definite privilege!
Sustainability was one of the key components of the design and over its life period this cozy Spanish house is projected to cut out carbon emissions by as much as 50% when compared to regular residences of similar size. On the inside beautiful wooden surfaces clay plastered walls and exposed brick surfaces bring in ample textural contrast as one clearly notices a modern-rustic style.
How do you make a beautiful and inviting alpine-style chalet nestled in the heart of the Donner Pass even more amazing? Mork-Ulnes Architects have the solution for you with their design of the exquisite as it feels like an amalgamation of the classic ski cabin and a concrete base that is more common in dashing urban homes.
It is beautiful area rugs bookshelves and wall art that bring color and energy to a home that is otherwise draped in white. A wall of floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors welcomes the spectacular mountain view inside as it becomes the highlight of each and every room throughout this lovely residence.
Apart from doing plenty of good for the planet these zero-energy structures also cut down on your power bill and put your home budget in green over the long term. Epitomizing this trend is the in Freeport Maine with its 4.6 KW photovoltaic panels and highly insulated structure.
Much of this is achieved using a beautiful blend of stone and glass on the outside that marries two contrasting elements in a pleasing fashion. Designed by Vanguard Studio this Spanish Oaks home is as much about the outdoors as it is about the interior!
