Standard projects of private houses have their advantages, but the most interesting buildings are always built according to an individual plan, taking into account the characteristics of a particular plot of land. Our tips site has collected examples of modern homes that fit perfectly in the area and have unique features for you.
Villa Courbe, built in 2018. It features a wavy roof and walls that repeat its shape, as well as the largest possible glazing area. Organic shapes help the villa blend in perfectly with the surrounding landscape.
The house, 36 meters long and only 6.5 meters wide, has a laconic gray facade, thanks to which it literally looks like a huge boulder on the slope. The house does not just fit into the landscape, it protects the slope from crumbling, landslides.
The highlight of this small house was not only the curved shapes of the walls, but also the cladding of the facade with dark, burnt wood. The house has six rooms and a concrete basement.
It is an old mill that has retained its rustic charm thanks to its natural timber cladding. The interior is very modern, inside the building is divided into separate apartments, which the owners rent to everyone who wants to relax in nature.
An interesting solution – the second floor, paneled with wood, seems much more massive than the first with its panoramic windows offering beautiful views from the hill. The bedrooms are upstairs, in a private area, and the space below has become common, as open as possible.
The house is small, but very cozy, with a beautiful terrace, attic and basement. The combination of wood, steel, concrete and glass looks very organic, while the exterior of the house is not defiant, but just modern and interesting.
Villa Jonc is an amalgamation of three houses with a common garden and individual characteristics. Again, a large area of glazing on the first floor and wood paneling on the second, where the owners’ bedrooms are located.
A two-level brutal house on a concrete base. Strong, with strict forms, it might look too massive, but this impression is smoothed out by panoramic windows, which give the building lightness and do not interfere with admiring the landscape.
From the outside, this house looks very simple with its austere forms and laconic white facade. Inside, there are also no special frills, the interior is decorated with natural materials and is divided into a public and a closed area.
The house is partially built into a hill, in the basement there is not only a garage, but also a concrete wine cellar.
We acknowledge that all these houses are located in Switzerland. Yes, this country is not only traditional chalets, which the portal wrote about in detail. These are also very interesting modern projects that show all the trends in architecture of the XXI century..
