Large glass doors and sweeping glass windows connect the home with the expansive garden and outdoor relaxation zones allowing for a seamless extension of the indoor living area. With the upper level housing the bedrooms and other family areas life at this fully-automated smart home is both comfortable and relaxing.
Designed by GITC Arquitectura to overcome these initial hurdles the contemporary family house sits on a specially designed base as the nature of soil on the agricultural lot was simply not conducive for construction.
Sliding glass doors separate the indoors with the porch and allow for an easy transition between both the areas even as the homeowners can enjoy the best of Texas weather without ever living the comfort of the living room.
This creates a cheerful and well-kit atmosphere even as the living area flows into kitchen and dining space next to it. Adding another layer of intrigue to the apartment is the use of uncovered thermo-clay bricks in the living area and plasterboard in the bedrooms; giving the new home plenty of visual contrast.
Clad in white and punctured by the beautiful placed windows throughout the structure the façade is a blend of traditional rural design and modern aesthetics with insulation and privacy being top priorities.
Different ‘concrete blocks’ across three floors form the basic core of this multi-generational family house even as terrazzo brings a touch of vintage Vietnamese charm to this contemporary residence.
