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.
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.
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.
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.
One of the striking features of the home is its extensive use of glass for the top level that gives those inside gorgeous views of snowy slopes in winter and lush green canopy in the summer months. With no beams or dividing walls being employed the vacation home has a ‘barn like’ atmosphere that is uncluttered and uncomplicated. The top floor sports the living and dining spaces that are all connected visually on one level while the bottom level of the home offers ample privacy.
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.
