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 Sugar Bowl.
The Sugar Bowl is a project by John Maniscalco Architecture, an studio that produces work based on two principles - creating livable, modern spaces and engaging clients in the design process. Their approach takes the particular needs, desires, and personality of each client and utilizes them to shape a unique architectural solution. The design of this new home is entirely a product of its dramatic environment. Perched on a concrete plinth that lifts the house above the tall winter snow-pack, a solid, cedar-clad volume houses sleeping areas, boot room, and service spaces. Above, a variety of living spaces, each enjoying mountain views, are gathered under a simple, bent planar roof form. The exaggerated geometry of the openings frame views of horizontal snow drifts and vertical stands of pine trees.
This house is really beautiful, elegant and clean. The wood, the glasses and the wide spaces created a cozy and unique look to the house. Certainly a great place to live. ;)
Check out John Maniscalco Architecture website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time.
We found this house at Contemporist.
