Designed to serve the needs of a newlywed couple the house obviously takes its inspiration from the art of Origami which is now renowned across the globe. Reinterpreting classic in a contemporary fashion the Origami House stands out visually with ease.
We often hear about the elements shaping the landscape over several thousands of years. But this spectacular modern home located at an elevation of 7000 feet above sea level and in the snow-clad peaks of Boulder Colorado has also been shaped by earth wind and fire!
The hustle and bustle of modern urban lifestyle can be taxing and getting away from the rush is what we often do to rest rejuvenate and find that smile which might have taken a backseat due to the daily rigors. While some might love to spend a weekend alone at the spa to rediscover themselves others prefer a quiet trip along with the family to a beautiful cabin away from the concrete jungle. Offering sweeping views of a secluded lake and relaxing ambiance the is all about reconnecting with nature at its unadulterated best!
Even though it is hard to look beyond the view outside the real showstopper here is the silhouette of the structure that draws its inspiration from the banana slug which is a native of the region! The thin and elongated volume of the house bends and conforms to the undulated natural contours of the site.
Renovating an old private house and giving it a new lease on life is a task in which architects often work with many inherent restrictions. The job becomes even more difficult when the home that needs the makeover is a semi-detached villa that is partially connected with its neighbor.
Smart renovations not only maximize resources and cash they often result in some amazing homes that seem to showcase a style of their own. This fabulous house in the of Israel was originally built in the ’80s. When its latest owners bought the house the initial idea was to build an entirely new residence in its place.
Combining a variety of elements that include wood steel and exposed concrete the grand residence presents a comfy inviting aura that places emphasis on bringing the outdoors inside. The house is spread across 3 spacious levels with the children’s playroom and bedrooms occupying the basement.
