On a small sloping plateau, very interesting house was designed by Izquerdo Lehmann Arquitectos and located in Chile. The main feature of it, of course, is the openness of the surrounding nature. Total floor area is about 350 square meters, where a spacious living room and dining room, three children’s rooms, master bedroom and guest bedroom are situated. There is a spacious patio in the central part of the house, which is well protected from strong winds that often blow from the sea, as well as other negative phenomena. One of the most original peculiarities is the use of natural stones, which have been mined on a local beach.
This contemporary luxury residence is placed on the steep hill slope facing the pacific ocean. The total area of the house is 6500 sq. ft. and almost a half of it (2500 sq. ft.) is a open-air living space with multiple entertainment areas, Jacuzzi, barbeque and ocean views, which is great considering the Costa Rican weather conditions. The private indoor facilities include master’s bedroom, junior bedroom, two guest bedrooms and caretaker’s quarters, each with separate bathroom. It’s perfect to accommodate a company of eight on vacation.
This unique house is located on the coast of Vestfold in the southern part of Norway. It was built as a summer residence and blends with the landscape greatly. Truth to say, it’s difficult to imagine that modern comfortable house could be situated on a terrain surrounded by rocks, but the designers from Jarmund / Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL have implemented this idea. The house and terrace are partly built upon existing stone walls, other parts of the walls are made of stones from the blasting on the ground. The exterior is clad in wood and stone. As a whole, the house impressed us by its contemporary look, stylish pool and terrace which offer fascinating views of the water and rocks.
