Following the success of Fabiano's article 'One of the Most Beautiful Houses I've Ever Seen' and also some requests from our readers, we are proud to announce a new post series here at Abduzeedo, a series about Beautiful Houses. The idea in this series is to show beautiful and inspiring houses. Houses that are remarkable for its design, elegance, elements, concept or simply because they are beautiful. 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 unique Quail Hill house.
Quail Hill is a project by Bates Masi Architects, an accredited firm with roots in eastern Long Island for over 40 years, responds to each project with extensive research in related architectural fields, materials, craft and the environment for unique solutions. For the quail hill project for example, the whole house is very unique and has a very beautiful style and concept. Starting with the chimney, that looks massive and heavy but is actually made of thin concrete panels. They also designed a very nice double paned glass wall filled with small seashells for the wall by the stairs, a reference to the nearby beaches. The double-height living/dining room is a compatible scale and space for the large works of art and family gatherings. The fireplace surround reflects fragmented images of the art and surrounding landscape while its crystalline appearance defies its humble origins: polished stainless steel military dog tags.
I stumbled upon this house during my daily browsing around and I really liked its style... a beautiful and stylish house surrounded by nature and great architectural elements. I simply love clean houses with huge spaces and mixed materials - wood, glass, steel, etc. And the quail hill house has all that! So I had to show it here to you guys. Check out Bates Masi Architects website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time. :)
And I would like to thank Paul Masi and Adam Jordan from Bates Masi Architects for the attention and the material for this post. Thanks a lot!
