Having a romantic place to live may inspire the memories of childhood. Located in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, the original mid-century kit house was built on a small valley which the surrounding lands are at the higher elevation. The house is like being built-on a small “valley” with its middle part is visible as a 3 floor home. The exterior of the house looks enchanting with the horizontal and vertical wall pattern and slanted roof. The wall is calm in a few gray color shades and has balconies with minimalist balustrade.
The renovation created a bedroom nestled in the treetops, this room was connected to the other room by a glass bridge. There, there are some large skylights above the glass bridge too. The kitchen is natural, clutter free and is calm with its light brown color and dark grey countertop and light grey range hood. Other parts of the interiors are stylish and is accented with wood especially for the ceiling of the top floor. Architect: Metcalfe A&D. Photography by Barry Halkin.
The “H2o” in the “Ski House H2o” may represent the passion of the house owners of water sport, namely water-skiing. The passion appears in the design of the house and its features. Firstly, they modified an existing artificial lake in the agricultural property they bough to be used for slalom course racing/water skiing. Secondly, this modern house features design that admires the artificial lake along with its surroundings. Located in Hobe Sound in Florida, the open design (especially at the upper transom windows) lets breezes in for cooling after passing the lake’s water and the lap pool. This design creates a passive air conditioning for the lake house. Moreover, the open design also captures the view of the surroundings. The house comes with spacious rooftop area enclosed by wonderful elegant and simple grey metal balustrade. There, the landscape and lake view.
This house is built on a small hill with a long flat volume and cantilevered volume at one end. The roof is flat and there’s an entrance at the middle of the house. The grey metal roof is slightly slanted and guests can see the other side of the garden through the middle entrance just from the driveway.
This modern lake house was designed in three parts, the public area, master bedroom and the guest zone, all were built with durable yet simple and cost-effective materials such as SIP panels and stucco wall over insulated form blocks. Other materials would be concrete for wall finish and floor, and aluminum for windows. Architects: Hughes Umbanhowar Architects.
