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.
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.
