The couple admits that it had been a lot of work to renovate the whole structure which included even the shaping up of each and every single irregular stone. The home has four floors in total connected through an elevator accessed from an underground garage and wine cellar.
A lovely home in the countryside – this was the dream of the Italian couple They always wanted to go back to the countryside where both of them grew up. Quite aware of how different childhood would be here as compared to urban areas they wanted to give their children the same exotic experience they had. The farmhouse has a truly elegant look to it.
One major highlight is the entrance hallway with a 200-pair shoes storage unit which looks absolutely splendid. Nonetheless the other storage shelves and wardrobes are quite admirable too. The terrace of the building is inspired by Parisian style.
This glass concept home is created by Italian design firm Santambrogio. Carlo Santambrogio and designer Ennio Arosio have said that it was the desire of the client to build it completely out of glass. Located in Milan the house sits in the middle of a wood clearing.
Chances are that you would take this structure to be a flying saucer that accidentally landed in the woods. Well no this is an amazingly cool residence located in Ghent Belgium and is designed by Architecten De Vylder Vinck Taillieu. Called the house sports huge glass windows all round thereby bringing in the essence of the beauty of the woods inside.
And you can easily understand it as per the wish of the owners the design he deployed is nothing close to formal. That makes the indoors accessible and brings in a feel of intimacy. It is vary live-able spacious and above all kid-friendly.
The glass material used for its construction is 6 to 7 mm thick. The material can be specially heated during the winter which is one of the best and most demanded characteristic feature. It is simply awesome to behold and looks like a perfectly cut and polished glass cube from outside with a blue tinge to it. But I really wonder how one could live inside such a building.
