The modern addition consists of two rectangular concrete volumes stacked behind the original home. The upper level cantilevers over the bottom floor, creating a partially covered outdoor area. The main floor features open-plan living areas.
Preferring the simplicity of country living, the family living here wanted a modern villa that opens to the outside both in the front and the back. Panoramic windows assemble green views as the volume floats above the undulating landscape. A seamless connection is thus formed between the outdoors and the carefully designed indoors, defining what elegance in design means.
Floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces, large windows that let in natural light and vaulted post and beam ceilings— what could add more character and warmth than these wonderfully modern features? While the pattern may be linear, clean and uncluttered—there is definitely warmth to be found in modern architecture.
To keep it simple, modern architecture focuses more on industrial metals such as steel, concrete and glass (innovative industrial developments of the time). While contemporary design may use these same elements, its designs are considered new, re-thought, or forward-thinking. Clear as mud? With all that being said, the two designs will always mix and mingle with one another—even in the images in this article.
