Ready for a showpiece that will knock your socks off?! Introducing the Vail Grant House a home designed by Brooks + Scarpa Architects and built from prefabricated structural concrete insulating panels. As noted on The Daily Green these panels (SCIPS) are constructed from 60% recycled material such as wire mesh made from recycled auto parts.
Upstairs on the wooden staircase and we leave the rocky world behind. That’s where the bedrooms are. Neat rich in details and inviting the rooms are decorated to suit a purpose — relaxation.
Another of the many reasons why we love this Texan home is this stunning outdoor terrace that opens up in the backyard leading to the pool and a lush green turf. Certainly creates an amazing contrast with the home’s entrance don’t you think?
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.
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 wheels of each rolling hut help to elevate the structure so guests can enjoy an optimal view… Ready for a glimpse at the interior? The modern design does not disappoint. In fact these dwellings were designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects. Note the warm wooden details and the earthy glow of each space:
This home was cleverly created by Laird Herbert. We love how the exterior of the house combines metal and FSC tongue and groove cedar. FYI–the interior walls of the home are crafted from birch plywood and drywall.
