They say that all work and no play makes one go dull and pale. But at the home of Lisa and Michael Rubenstein there is pretty much of things taking a turn towards the dull and the mundane. This beautiful modern home by TRG Architects is not only a delight to live in with its plush interiors that are clad in cozy comfort but even the outdoors is equally appealing. It brings out the fun-filled kid in everyone with its lush green backyard that provides ample space for outdoor activities.
But the most distinctive aspect of the home is the openings that are specifically created to ensure that vegetation pretty grows ‘through’ it unabated. While the cube-like shape of the houses confirms with the current design trend it is the completely transparent and visually appealing ‘glassy’ lower level that steals the show.
Other than the mid 20th century Broadway musical and film what comes to mind when you hear the words “?” For most these two words invoke a deep longing for a several week holiday in paradise. Indeed the South Pacific is home to some of the most picturesque and popular vacation spots in the world including. These islands boast cloudless skies power-like sand and crystal clear waters full of tropical fish. In fact the South Pacific brings in tourists from around the globe all year long.
This beautiful lower level uses nothing but glass walls and that pretty much brings the outdoors inside the home. The top level is surrounded by retractable wooden panels that ensure those inside can get all the privacy they need and still tap into the wonderful and fresh views of the outside world whenever they feel like.
It seems like modern designers are becoming more and more innovative when it comes to providing both amazing views be it from the terrace of a lovely contemporary home or from a condo that has a city skyline for backdrop.
While the box-shaped look works well with the transparent glass look for the lower level the upper level seems more private and opens up to the back of the house with glass windows and offers lovely views along with an open terrace.
This combination of visual connectivity during day and complete security at night makes this structure located in Puget Sound Washington the ideal getaway. With unabated views of Hope Island Whidbey Island and even the iconic Olympic Mountains this is the perfect way to connect with nature and recharge your senses.
