This is a smart home inside a humble and simplistic shell. It has the warmth and coziness of a rustic home and the comfort and convenience of a contemporary, high-tech house. It may not look futuristic but in our opinion this is actually a more realistic image of what future homes could look like.
To save space and to ensure the required flexibility, the house has wall beds which stay concealed until needed and multifunctional furniture modules which can be used in various different ways, depending on the needs of the inhabitants. The living areas can be opened up to the yard and the full-height windows let in abundant natural light and ventilate the house naturally. At this point you might wonder where the bathroom is. It was integrated into a small annex along with the kitchen, this being the only newly built structure on the site.
Inside, the feel is spacious and modern, yet very comfortably furnished for a family. High pitched ceilings with architectural details soar above a light-filled great room, thanks to the wall of windows facing the pool area. A neutral palette enhances the view of the outdoors as well as the colorful art on the wall. The open floor plan is actually one large space that is divided by function with the furniture arrangement. This is the perfect arrangement for families that want to spend time together even when occupied with a variety of activities, all of which can take place in the one space.
A night view of the house from the exterior reveals the design and how it is possible to see through the structure while the glass reflects the outdoor landscape. It is relaxing, cozy and open all at the same time.
