The eventual design of the home is a beautiful amalgamation of both well-defined lines borrowed from modern design merged with sporadic and stylish use of wood to create a minimalistic and spacious house. Glass and concrete have been used extensively and the shades have been largely kept neutral with white being the predominant color of choice. Wood has been cleverly used to form the frame of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows to provide a sense of balance.
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.
The stand out structure of the entire design is the large metal wall made out of painted aluminum that not only adds to the beauty and the balance of the home but also provides privacy by visually shielding the interiors from the wanderers’ eyes outside. The tasteful glazed flooring and the pool offer perfectly reflective surfaces and give the home a more spacious feel.
The modern AA House is located in Barcelona and seems from an aerial view to be a cluster of triangular prisms and pyramids. It was designed by OAB as a house made up from connected pavilions posed in a simple and beautiful geometry. The many inclined roofs of the pavilions fold in different directions like origami all in white.
Modern architects and designers are placing as much emphasis on creating beautiful modern homes that stay connected with the environment around them at all times as they are on sleek and stylish interiors. And in this effort to add visual space and make the exteriors a part of the house one has seen a growing trend in employing glass extensively and expansively.
And if all of this is not enough then a refreshing infinity pool an indoor waterfall and even a home theater with stadium seating should be wonderful added incentives. Beautiful chandeliers and pendant lamps help accentuate this California home and for those interested it will set you back some $13 million; not much for all that is on offer really.
Designed by Juma Architects the home has a wonderful first floor that is defined by its extensive and extravagant use of glass in the form of floor-to ceiling glass windows. The entire floor can be used either as a single flowing space or one can create several rooms using in-built partitions. While the use of the glass allows for lovely views of the sea not too far away the infinity pool simply takes the experience to a whole new level.
