This time I would like to review a post written by Freshome, check my reviews below.
It is an example of thinking out of the box in term of designing a private residence. There is a specific “X” factor of the house that makes it different from other houses in the residential. Let me introduce you to the V House designed by I + GC [arquitectura] which shows many twist inside.
This house is built in contemporary fashion. You can see many modern elements inside that accentuate the recent urban lifestyle among people. There are two floors in which the ground floor hold living area, kitchen, dining room and a garage. Meanwhile, on the upper floor you will find the bedrooms and other private rooms where the family may spend most of their quality time. Let’s start to see from the outside of the house. A quiet wide garden surrounds this beautiful house with green plantation and you will find a pool at the backyard. There is nothing special about this pool, you can spend your leisure time here or just by sitting on the veranda section next to it. The facade by the way is intriguing enough. With a different shape compares to other common private residence, this house could stole attention of everyone who’s passing by.
The house is painted in white, you will see white everywhere except the furnitures and the steps of its staircase. The other details are mostly brown or black. On the ground floor you will find the V shape between the dining area and the living area, seperating these rooms with glass doors so you can see and pass through both ways. The V shape also divides this houseinto two main buildings. The first one is a building with two floors, the other one is just a one floor building. Small plantation is placed in the middle of the V corner. The living area, which is in the one-floored bulding, is equipped with sofa, flatscreen, and also a table with couple of chairs next to it. A pedant lamp add up the beauty pf the room. A fur rug is to cover to floor right under that table.
In the two-floored building consists of a kitchen and dining area on the ground floor and bedrooms on the upper floor. If we are walking up to the second floor, there is this narrow corridor that connects a zone to another. This twist becomes an interesting part of the house. You can find a balcony at the back of the bedroom. Overall, this house offers an openess and luxury in one package. I think some part clearly give us inspiration to develop even better.
