We begin with the Monte-Silo House in Utah which consists of two metal grain silos placed back to back for maximum space. The front silo is the largest and generous windows allow the home’s inhabitants to take in the view of the Provo River. The second-level deck provides shading for the floor below.
The presence of wood is felt even indoors as the flooring and sporadic presence of the material in exclusive corners gives the home a warm and welcoming appeal. Spacious living and dining areas are separated by a courtyard allowing for ample natural ventilation.
Rather than consisting of a silo converted into a home this next dwelling features silos that have been cleverly integrated into the architecture. In fact this amazing house by Hudson Architects is a converted 16th century Essex barn.
When you mention Texas one can’t help but think of oil rigs amazing cattle farms tycoons and a rather arid landscape. But keeping away from the culture of “bigger better and faster” the Hill Country residence in Austin has our thirst for architectural design fulfilled.
An ergonomic modern kitchen smart lighting and luxurious modern comforts await inside this picture-perfect holiday residence. Clean and well defined lines combined with the picturesque setting outside turn a weekend here into a delightful and unforgettable experience.
