Of course the pool and the back garden steal plenty of attention as they provide you a with a soothing fresh water dip in case you are bored with all the ocean views or need a change from the setting as you return from the nearest beach. This is all about living it up in an eco-friendly style.
Concrete is used wherever necessary but it seems like the designers have mostly preferred wood with the one used on the outside being more resistant to the rough weather that can hit the region once in a while. The interiors seem simple and elegant and situated at Østhusvik the Dalene cabin offers 120 square meters of private and tranquil escape from the hustle of city life.
The upper floor features three bedrooms including one master with walk-in wardrobe private balcony and ensuite bathroom with a soak tub. A family bathroom compliments the two smaller bedrooms. The lower level is fully equipped with an expansive chef’s kitchen formal dining area and informal entertainment and living spaces. The penthouse opens onto a stunning 90 square meter patio with glass a windbreak to shelter the family and guests as they take in the awe-inspiring inner city views.
The architects have divided the available space into two broad sections – an active area and a quiet zone and the entire arrangement follows this predetermined pattern. The beautiful open dining space an ultra-modern kitchen and a relaxing living area with a large L-shape sofa taking a center spot are arranged ever so elegantly to ensure that function naturally follows form.
With an interesting architecture like the one displayed by the Shield House the residence will surely attract attention from passers-by. Designed by Boulder-based Studio H:T and located in Denver Colorado the modern home spreads over 3000 square feet. Its imposing shell was adorned with a curved wall protecting the inhabitant’s privacy and constructing an asymmetric design that breaks the monotony of the volumetric structure.
One of the most notable elements of this room however is the illuminated blue table which sheds an aquamarine glow on all surfaces close by. While something of this style would be more suited in a European discotheque than an aristocratic household it somehow fits beautifully.
The outdoor fireplace is in the perfect place to warm up on a cool evening after taking a relaxing dip in the pool. No need to worry about dripping water as the treated wood floor has plenty of drainage. The view of the terraced lawns appears to give you a breath of pure oxygen to both energize and relax you at the same time.
