So if you like architecture, interior design and beautifully designed houses, you are at the right spot. Check out this week beautiful house and stay tuned for more...
This week we present you the beautiful Hotchkiss Residence.
The Hotchkiss Residence is a project by Scott | Edwards Architecture, a firm built on the premise that innovative design solutions result from a collaborative effort between architect, client and craftsperson. The project is a 2,000 sf home on the Columbia river in Vancouver Washington. The home, built for a retired couple, was placed on the site to maximize the southern view to the river. A large overhang creates a dynamic outdoor living room and creates enough overhang to shield the harsh rays of the sun from penetrating the interior of the home. Radiant floor heating, exposed wood structure and walnut cabinetry create a contemporary, yet warm home.
The house is super elegant and beautiful. All the windows, the floor, the materials and color combinations resulted in a modern and cozy house. The wood also gave the place a beautiful and unique look, definitely a place I would love to live in ;)
Check out Scott | Edwards Architecture website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time.
