Dualchas Architects definitely made the most of the views when they designed this house in the UK. It stands on a site that overlooks Loch Dunvegan and it has floor-to-ceiling windows in every room, including the bathroom. Every window captures a different part of the view and together they frame the whole panorama beautifully. The view is definitely important but so is having a comfortable place from where to enjoy it. Architect Olga Freiman designed this beautiful retreat in Moscow, Russia and made sure to have a cozy lounge area facing the panorama framed by the full-height glass wall.
The pools are created out of modified shipping containers measuring 8 x 20 ft (2.4 x 6 m). The design presents multiple advantages such as the fact that the structure can be relocated and transported to pretty much any location worldwide. In addition, a shipping container pool can be set up in minutes and it can also be enjoyed throughout the year thanks to the built-in heater. The heater can increate the temperature of the water to 30 degrees Celsius even in a -10 degrees Celsius temperature. A divider can be added if desired to transform a section of the pool into a hot tub. The installation of the pool is simple and can be done by local professionals or by the clients themselves. The ground needs to be prepped and Mudpools suggests two common and effective methods that can be used: a concrete slab or 8” of compacted gravel. Of course, lots of alternatives also exist.
The magnificent view of the ocean which can be admired from the bedroom but also from the living areas make this residence a dream home. The building is located in Carmel, California and was designed by Sagan Piechota Architecture. It’s a contemporary, two-storey home placed on a remote and extraordinary site. When designing this retreat in Anguilla, in British West Indies, duo Frank Alfred Hamilton and Cecconi Simone chose to use a palette of simple and neutral materials and colors and to let the views become the focal point and the main attraction. They enter the house and they complement the interior decor while also opening up the spaces.
When they were asked to design an extension for a house in Bedford Hills, NY that dated back to 1974, Robert Siegel Architects envisioned the new structure as a modern, bright and open volume, with the new master bedroom framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and with a small terrace on the side. That’s exactly how they designed it. This is the Observation House, a structure situated on a hill, in the highest portion of a village in Bulgaria. The site was chosen for its panoramic views and the landscape that surrounds so, naturally, the I/O Architects team looked for ways to highlight these features and to turn them into focal points. They managed to do that by designing the house with glass walls on all sides.
