Freedom in creativity embodied in modern architectural trends
The area captivating with its natural beauty, creative emancipation and freedom in choosing tools and ideas provided by customers to architects created ideal conditions for the construction of a two-story house with panoramic windows. As a result, on the banks of the Snake River of the US state of Mississippi, not just a residential building grew, but a modern work of art architecture.
The challenges facing architects were resolved with maximum benefit for the residents. The cotton grove has been preserved and created a confidential and protected space. The visual barrier between the riverbed and the site did not become an obstacle to free access to the coastal zone and the ability to observe unforgettable landscapes of changing seasons.
The architectural complex consists of two separate buildings. The main house is formed by two wings perpendicular to each other, oriented from east to west. The guest house, directed from north to south, is designed in a single stylistic concept. The simplicity of the lines, colors, wooden finishes and panoramic glazing create a single outdoor space that effectively and fully uses the warm southern sun.
Overhangs of the building extend overhangs of the roof. As a result of such a construction technique, cedar plank floors were formed that protect glazed surfaces from direct sunlight and soften the contrast with the metal cladding of the building. Naturally colored cedar is laid out in a carefully selected wavy pattern to create an original texture and the impression of a play of shadow light.
Stable interconnection of a two-story house with panoramic windows and the environment is provided by courtyard paths equipped with cedar boards.
Use a tree to pave walkways and paths in the yard should be extremely careful. In this case, you need to pay attention to the climate, since for an area with high humidity this will not be the best option. The wood species must be durable and resistant to external influences, in addition, it will not be superfluous to treat the board with special impregnations to increase the life of the wood. And still all wooden surfaces are located above ground level to provide better ventilation and preservation of the tree.
External space integration
Wooden finishes and panoramic windows visually blur the boundaries between the natural landscape and the living rooms of the house.
Exterior finish of the canopy is continued in the equipment of the living room ceiling. Concrete floors contain pieces of green glass for additional texture and originality, which in combination with molded concrete, white plastered walls bring a calm and cozy atmosphere to the room.
Unlike strict external forms, each room in the house has its own character and special charm. For the relaxation room, these are rich blue accents and original furniture.
A non-standard wooden dining set and lamps give a peculiar flavor to the kitchen and dining area.
Bright color spots and custom-made furniture made each of the interior of a two-story house with panoramic windows unique and special: from bedrooms for children and adults to toilets and bathrooms.
