Fleur Prevost. Exterior. September 05th , 2017.
It was designed as a weekend getaway for visitors and it has a pond and a series of open spaces which communicate seamlessly with the outdoors. What we love the most about this guest house designed by Desai Chia Architecture is the scale of the windows and how they wrap around corners to capture the most amazing views. The whole idea behind this cozy although pretty big house in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, was to offer the owners the opportunity to enjoy living in the middle of nature, surrounded by trees and tranquility. The design direction chosen by Weber Arquitectos includes a lot of glazed walls and floor-to-ceiling windows while the house as a whole was designed around the existing trees, preserving the environment as much as possible.
Sometimes the hardest part about building a house is finding the right spot for it. It can take years to find the ideal location but when you do everything falls into place. For this residence designed by Hassell, it was the site and views that shaped the building. What better way to enjoy a spot in the mountains with views over the tree tops than from inside a cozy home that has a floor-to-ceiling window positioned just right…This seems to also be the idea that Fearon Hay Architects had when they designed this retreat in Queenstown, New Zealand.
This is view from one of the cantilevered cabins that architect Snorre Stinessen built for an island resort in Norway. Several such structures were built on the shore, with areas that extend outwards over the water. Also located in Norway, this summer house designed by Marianne Borge and Kjetil Saeterdal manages to somehow make its inhabitants feel like they’re outdoors when they’re actually inside. It’s all about the openness of the spaces and the fact that the house has huge panorama windows.
If there’s one thing floor-to-ceiling windows excel at, it’s framing a beautiful view and bringing the outdoors in. Architects from all over the world are making the most of the wonderful locations they work with by including full-height windows in their designs. They get to connect houses to their surroundings and to immerse them into nature in the most beautiful and inspiring ways. Get ready to be inspired.
