The Swiss architecture studio created two cubes emerging from the hill caressed by natural light on the inside through cavities and open courtyards. Extensive use of wood in furniture and window frames especially in the kitchen and bedroom soften the hard edges of the stone walls and warm up the atmosphere.
Located in Stuttgart Germany this 377 square meters dream home displays a minimalist design defined by straight lines and a constructive use of different building materials. Designed by Alexander Brenner Architects and placed on an almost triangular plot House Heidehof displays an interesting mix of materials on the front facade – wood cladding adorns the large garage doors above which a zebra-resembling pattern is suddenly interrupted by a white-washed second floor.
Ever wondered what a writer’s house would look like? Enticing as a work of fiction right? Indeed it is. This amazing house located in Nova Lima Brazil encompasses all that is imaginative and stands supreme across a 270 square meter area.
Everything is well balanced even with the oversized furniture (see that huge office table) and the bold art work in the dining room. Speaking of the open dining space the 10-person dining set grabs the eye as it’s stunningly illuminated by a series of cube pendants. Even more fascinating are the rays of the rising and setting sun flow in similar pattern into the dining room.
The house is just irresistible and the environment is just an element for that. They have separated a good deal of space for the garden which is protected by caged wall of stones. External constructions are well spaced for unobstructed entry of solar rays.
