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.
Adding more charm to this mesmerizing home there’s also a small pool to make those sunny summer days more bearable and a fancy terrace to enjoy a cold beer with the family in the evenings or a good cup of coffee in the morning while reading the news. Saying that this is a dream home is nothing but an understatement. Not sure about you but we’ve just been left drooling …
The best part of the house is right at the entrance as the street façade forces you to believe that the house is a classic Victorian structure with no hint of contemporary style. The architects had to maintain the front view as the home is located in a historically preserved neighborhood.
While most contemporary homes tend to go too far on an ultra-sleek design there is a wonderful amalgamation of form and functionality here. The designers of the space have achieved this fine balance by using glass windows in an extensive manner.
Creating a modern residence that offers gorgeous views and maintains the delicate balance of the surrounding natural setting is indeed a hard task. Architect Quico Jorreto has successfully managed to accomplish this by conjuring up and bringing to life this amazing house overlooking Miño River in Galicia Spain. Surrounded by a beautiful green landscape the home utilizes the available landscape to perfection as it offers those inside with unabated views of the river terrain while providing a comfortable retreat.
