This truly modern and eccentric home is all about a well balanced dialogue between Gluck+ architects and the owners who allowed the designers to express their amazing imagination and innovation.
Northern American architecture has always amazed through leading the trend in house design because of the liberty architects posses when designing new concepts, unaltered so much by the owners opinion. This freedom of expression in architecture can be easily noticed when looking at a structure like this one. A very clear minimalist style is present, combining two simple shapes into an intriguing and eccentric project. As you would imagine, a steel structure supports the gravity defying building, helped by two seemingly too thin steel pillars holding the cantilever. Although steel structures are more likely to be used when building tall skyscrapers or immensely complicated designs, this design needs one to create a supple and simple modern design.
Encircled by an amazing natural environment, it only felt natural that designers would fit this contemporary home with as much glass as possible, to take advantage of the views and the feel of the wilderness. This gesture is in tandem with the act of placing the horizontal volume as high as possible, making this eccentric house perfect for glancing at the surroundings. Furthermore, where there are no windows, the facade was fitted with a mirror-like material that reflects the trees and the house itself; it helps it blend in but also enhances its attributes, making it look even more striking. Colours like green and yellow contribute as well in the attempt of making it blend in and not damage the environment. On the inside, the modern home is as spectacular and shares the same simplistic and minimalist design. Almost all the furniture was lowered as much as possible to allow a seamless flow of glazing all around the residence. But perhaps the most intriguing aspect is the staircase which is a beauty on the inside, allowing the owners to be in contact with nature, and on the outside where it shares the intimacy of the glass tower with the exterior, inducing a natural climbing motion.
