Modern Home with Uncommon Perspectives: Window to the World

Modern Home with Uncommon Perspectives

Window to the World is a spectacular residence designed by John Sanderson Architects and built by Martin Rowley from Global Spaces. Here is the official project description we received:” Waking up to spectacular views of Port Phillip Bay every morning was the exciting offer for this home location, and John Sanderson, of John Sanderson Architects, reveled in the challenge of designing a new home that welcomed the natural environment inside, but was practical in function to create a homely living experience. For environmental and practical reasons John Sanderson retained a substantial amount of the existing two storey structure, but rearranged living areas. The spectacular views determined the main living areas, including an external deck and the Master Bedroom which were located on the upper levels, with the lower levels accommodating three bedrooms, a billiard room and informal living areas. Architectural add-ons such as specially designed sunscreens were chosen to assist the thermal performance of the building in the summer months.

The rear north wall is entirely high performance Viridian glass in large 2.4 meter high and 2.5 meter wide sliding panel windows to reveal the spectacular views. John considers his new home the definition of comfort and durability that honors and respects the beautiful bay environment.“Since the owners moved in, the home has withstood the extremes of the environment, from the dramatic wind and rain of the escarpment to the glare of the sun and water and the heat of the summer,” said John. “All the while they’ve enjoyed a comfortable home with beautiful views, saved on energy bills and they haven’t once had to wear sunnies inside.”(Images by Bonnie Savage Photography)

Glamour and Stylish of a Hollywood Home: Sunset Plaza Residence

Sunset Plaza Residence was designed by David Thompson and Kevin Southerland from Assembledge Architects and is located above the Sunset Strip in the famous Hollywood Hills. Just another proof that some people really don’t hold back when it comes to building their crib, this abode seems to have it all: an impressive and uncommon architecture, an infinity pool that dazzles the senses, floor to ceiling windows and to top it all, dramatic panoramic views of Los Angeles. Defying our common perception of a comfortable home, this 5,000 sq ft residence is built in a contemporary fashion and is opened to the surrounding landscape due to movable glass walls. Moreover, the L-shape ensures good natural lighting in every room of the house. This goes to show that aside from having a jaw-dropping appearance, Sunset Plaza also has sustainable features. The interiors are imposing and breathtaking, with a layout that proves high-class tastes while in the same time allowing the home to breathe. What do you think? Impressive enough for the Hollywood Hills?














Peaceful Contemporary Retreat in Vancouver: The Hotchkiss Residence

The Hotchkiss Residence was designed by Scott Edwards Architecture and is located in Vancouver, Washington. Developed in a sumptuous contemporary fashion, the home reigns over the Columbia river, taking full advantage of its views. The total surface of the building is 2,000 square feet (185 sqm), which is just enough for a retired couple to enjoy a peaceful and comfortable life. The living room is the focal point of the residence and is a definite eye-catcher. Dynamic and opened towards the river, it gives the owners a chance to feel the pulse of every new day while drinking coffee or relaxing near the fireplace. The living room is also highly modern, featuring minimalist furniture arrangements and vivid art works. We particularly like the kitchen/bar which brings a youthful feel to the place.
