Those who lounge on the patio are quite literally surrounded by water — below, above and in the distance. It’s the perfect environment for water lovers as the relaxing vibe permeates the entire outdoor space. The modern design is definitely softened by the inclusion of the water in the novel pool design.
The overall design is defined by strong and obvious curves, featuring a V-shaped floor plan that frames a courtyard with its wings. The interior spaces seamlessly flow together, featuring curved walls, dividers and even gently arched ceilings. There’s nothing standard about this house yet you wouldn’t really be able to tell that by looking at it from the street, mainly because it’s difficult to even spot it from there.
There are numerous examples of successful meshing of these two, seemingly opposing, styles together into one cohesive design. Look to the image below— it’s a exemplary illustration of a modern and traditional union. The mixture of cedar shingles with modern structural elements creates a very unique and appealing home.
The house takes advantage of a vertical structure and features a spiraling staircase that gracefully links all the floors and merges the spaces in a very elegant manner. On the ground floor, there’s an open living area that opens to the courtyard through sliding glass doors, overlooking the riverbed and the distant landscape. On one side of the floor plan you can see the kitchen, concealed inside this white shell. It’s both open and closed, making the most of the curved wall that surrounds it.
