Some of the most sought after features in a modern residence are clean and well defined form ergonomic interiors and a view to die for from its vast confines. Designed with a sense of ‘flowing philosophy’ by Stuart Silk Architects the Washington Park Hilltop Residence tries to amalgamate both varied styles and visual textures into one beautiful home.
Silo House was created by Cornell University for the Solar Decathlon competition hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy. The goal: “to design build and operate the most attractive effective and energy-efficient solar-powered house.”
The presence of a well-placed glass window in every single room allows for ample ventilation while also keeping those inside visually bonded with the fresh and green surroundings. In some rooms multiple giant glass windows have been employed to increase this connectivity. Large and flowing interiors seem even more spacious as one single tone of white has been used throughout.
Plush décor and ergonomic shelves that disappear into the walls bring understated class. A beautiful staircase with seemingly ‘floating’ wooden steps leads to the upper level with five-bedrooms and stunning bathrooms.
The indoors comprise a huge lounge three large bedrooms en-suite bathrooms both indoor and outdoor kitchens as well as barbecue. Walk in dressing rooms and built in wardrobes are exemplary features of the décor style. The tropical gardens and a private swimming pool complete the structure. The interior design has modern facilities and is decorated with traditional Thai artifacts.
Large glass windows and sliding glass doors also keep those inside visually connected with the world outside at all times. Refined and refreshing in its outlook this Californian residence is for those who love to enjoy life at their own relaxed pace!
