This interesting unusual house can be compared with real medieval fortress. McLeod residence was built in a beautiful place in Vermont, which is considered one of the most comfortable and quiet corners of the nature of the USA. The authors of the project are specialists from John Mcleod Architect. The house has very solid construction and although it has three floors, it seems very reliable. In part, this feeling is created due to the heavy dark façade and traditional materials such as ground concrete slab, plaster walls, exposed wood joists, cork and so on. Interesting feature is the roof of the house that is covered with green grass, where you can see almost all the local herbs and flowers. The interiors were decorated in the style of country houses, which makes them very cozy and welcoming.
The use of natural materials and beautiful nature that surrounds the house – these are the components which allow it to look as spectacular. The amazing structure combines stone, wood and glass. This project was designed by Prentiss Architects and was called North Bay Residence. By the way, another project with similar name North Bay Road Residence was presented in the blog earlier, but they are quite opposite houses. The house is located on San Juan Island in the U.S. near the coast. The plot has a slight slope, which makes the structure of the houses more attractive, and provides more exciting views. Decorated in classic and contemporary style simultaneously, the residence is designed to please everyone.
