Houzz is the new way to design your home.
So much glass; separate bedroom (I think), situated nicely on the hill; relatively small size.
Living with open walls. Like the variation of height to differentiate spaces.
Bamboo "curtains" provide wind and rain screen or privacy.
Indoor to outdoor. Roof angles up for passive solar gain in winter.
One room interior (with enclosed bathroom) opens onto outdoor patio and kitchen.
Walls that slide back.
Interior-exterior transition made seamless
Open to outdoors
All rooms open onto (or are open to) central courtyard with river-inspired pool.
Comment from owner: justj there are wooden shutters on all the windows. Susan Mills Design, yes Carolynandsteve are correct, the straps on the terrace are yoga ropes ~ which are great for stretching and being upside down. Daliadiva the pool is not big, but it is big enough to get wet, stretch and have 4 people in it at once comfortably. About 6m (18ft) in length and 2m (6ft) in width - more of a "dipping pool." It has a regular filter - in retrospect I would have made it non chlorine and either salt or natural with side plants that clean the water.
Overlapping parts of house can open up views, create interstitial spaces.
Overlapping houses -- or parts of house -- creates natural courtyard and hidden spaces.
Very similar in form are the PopUP houses by House Port LLC. The series of residences consists of flat-roofed PopUP cubes below a "House Port," a larger version of CCS's metal canopy. Here the port encloses the whole of the cubes below, creating wraparound porches.
A closer view of one of House Port's designs illustrates how the objects underneath can be spaced apart to create more interstitial spaces. In theory, the port and cubes work independently, so they can be located relative to each other that responds to the client's needs: climate, view, space requirements, and so on.
A closer look reveals the indoor/outdoor zone created by the roof and columns; how the glass walls open to link inside and outside; and how the wood bathroom enclosure stops at the height of the glass walls, looking like an object nested within the space.
Window seat with windows opening all the way to outside
Nice way to add interest, privacy: a boundary garden.
Very cute house.
