The home’s rounded shape maximizes the collection of solar energy. The Oil Silo Home is designed to house three families: a 2-person young family a 4-person nuclear family and 6-person multi-generational family. If many of the home’s inhabitants were on the balconies or descending the stairs at the same time it might look a little something like this…
Nestled in a hilly terrain and surrounded by a lush green canopy the home sports tasteful and sophisticated interiors which are as appealing as the view outside. A beautiful metallic staircase connects the outdoors directly with the lavish terrace space that promises unabated views of both the woods and the city skyscrapers in the distance.
But the real showstopper of this cool home lies beneath the vast pool that reflects the surrounding area and enhances the existing ambiance. The residential volume that houses the living area kitchen bedroom and the bathrooms is found below.
The kitchen looks particularly stunning with its large wooden shelves that seem to form one giant seamless wooden wall with the white stone kitchen countertop stealing the spotlight. The living and dining spaces are housed in the lower level along with the modern kitchen. A sleek wooden staircase leads you to the top level where one can find the master bedroom and the bathrooms. Elegant and eco-conscious Hewitt Avenue Home is an amalgamation of both clean and green home design!
Contemporary homes are as much about the view outside as they are about the warm and inviting atmosphere inside. The Wallace Ridge home in Trousdale Estates Beverly Hills is a charming blend of both these elements as Whipple Russell Architects employed lavish décor and striking color palette to bring in a unique look to the house.
A curved staircase features a slatted rail that mirrors the corrugated lines of the wall. Once again metal and wood combine to create a look that is rustic yet industrial at the same time. Perfect for a space that used to be a silo! Below we see a bedroom that features a “Bed in a Box” concept. The best part: each one of these beds includes stereo sound and a flat screen monitor!
