Technically our next featured dwelling isn’t a house–it’s a hotel! The Gruene Homestead Inn in New Braunfels Texas is billed as “one of the most distinctive units available” at the inn. And this unit is the equivalent of a one-bedroom loft apartment built into a 1940s grain silo.
Our last featured upcycled silo home is not made from a silo that holds grain. In fact this home was designed from a silo used to hold oil. Introducing the Oil Silo Home designed by PinkCloud.dk. The concept for this home involves recycling oil silos and turning them into affordable housing. Below we see the home envisioned with the help of a variety of software programs.
The unabated views of Washington Lake Mt. Rainier and North Cascades defined the way the house was conceived. Adding to this gorgeous natural setting is the use of water features inside the home to create an ambient atmosphere.
With a tagline like “affordable by design” it’s hard not to be curious about ma Modular homes. The company’s mission: to make modern design accessible. In fact their modular homes are half the price of other modular homes on the market! These green homes arrive in 180 days. Not a bad turnaround time right? The price starts at $140 per square foot.
An open living space on the ground floor is the essence of the entire revamp as it stays constantly connected with the world outside. The refreshing pool and a green backyard are integrated visually into the living area by employing floor-to-ceiling slidding glass windows. The arcades rounded windows and the basic outline of the church are unaltered to ensure that the legacy of the past does not go unnoticed.
