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.
It’s amazing how many separate areas can fit into one compact space. Below we see the sleeping loft the kitchen the dining “room” and the living area complete with a sofa bed. Hint: you can maximize your space by placing sleeping zones in out-of-the-way spots. Or using dual-purpose furniture such as a sofa that is also a bed!
Glazed surfaces and ergonomic shelves accentuate the contemporary style of the two bedrooms and the master bedroom. But the real star of the show here is a lavish and indulgent terrace that could throw one rocking party! Apart from offer great views you can find a living area a dining space barbeque corner a refreshing pool and even a completely furnished bar. And in case you are too tired after partying hard a resting area will help you recuperate!
We end by turning our attention to Leaf House designed to shelter a family of four. Built from Forest Stewardship Certified timber and reclaimed materials this is one eco-friendly home! The space is 215 square feet including a 55 square foot sleeping loft. The photos that follow are courtesy of Leafhouse/Laird Herbert via Tiny House Talk.
The interior of the home boasts curved walls and minimal furniture. When the architecture is this interesting why detract from it with a cluttered living space? This next room gets it just right…
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.
Below we feature a variety of modular housing options from long rectangular structures to a two-story home that will impress you with its angular design. There’s something liberating about simplifying your life down the the necessities yet doing it with oodles of style. Then again this lifestyle isn’t for everyone. But it’s fun to dream isn’t it?
