Stuart Silk Architects Company has developed a project of contemporary country house Lopez Island in Washington State. The area of residence is 1,300 square feet and it represents a classic holiday retreat from the city bustle but has quite modern look. The house is not big, so there are only a living room combined with kitchen and two small bedrooms with bathrooms. In the project only simple materials were used such as metal siding, glass, concrete blocks. On the one hand the facade provides a stunning view of the wildlife and the lake. The choice of materials and construction methods emphasize efficiency, low maintenance and energy conservation – principles that formed the basis of the project. The interiors are decorated in the style of comfort and cozy country house.
This beautiful wooden house that combines the features of a modern building and traditional parts for the countryside, was built by the architects from Linebox Studio in Ottawa. The house, called the Lighthouse, is designed for a family consisting of five persons, and has an area of just over 400 square meters. The fact, that the architects found the right combination of modern and traditional styles, allows the house blend harmoniously in the existing environment. Front facade of the house is rather closed and has only small separate windows, but the back facade, facing to the south side, provides plenty of natural light and warmth. It was made not only to protect the house from cold north winds, but also to provide the privacy of residents from outsiders.
