Opulent Modern Getaway in Buenos Aires, Argentina: BLLTT House

BLLTT House was recently completed by Enrique Barberis in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The large residence carries two levels wrapped in a latest rectangular shape and visually “continued” with a swimming pool. Geometry was taken further with triangular piercings adorning the lateral and back walls of the building. White, red and black were chosen for the outside finishes, pleasantly contrasting the golf green surroundings.
As you step inside, you’re greeted by imposing rooms with tall ceilings and minimalist arrangements, enhancing a sense of soberness. The most important living zone communicates with the swimming pool and is totally depending on natural lighting during daytime. The colour palette exhibited by the outside is subtly brought indoors, complementing the presence of wood. Showcasing contemporary materials and generously-sized living spaces, BLLTT House seems especially developed for an expensive getaway. How would you touch upon its design?

The only-Storey Slightly Inclined Modern House Overlooking the Alps

With an exquisite and relaxing view, the home at Zimmerberg Bottom is a residential project designed by Rossetti + Wyss Architekten in the region of Lake Zürich. The home, situated  on slightly sloping site, frames the views of the Alps and naturally, the lake. Each view is worth one thousand words. “The construction is defined by a guide wall and angular concrete wall establishing the diagonal panorama towards the lake.” The house’s rectangular shape is done by the mix of horizontal and vertical elements which confers a sculptural quality to the structure. Being constructed on a sloped piece of land, some areas – being raised are more private than others.
When it involves materials, the home encompasses a concrete limestone exterior, oak finishings and a fascinating decorative interior courtyard. The inside of the home is painted in light colours, the furniture has also a lightweight timber colour, exhaling breeziness, warmth and ease. The furniture is available in simple geometric shapes and it looks slightly solid. Wood is the most important material used for decorating the inside of the home and it establishes a different dialogue with the outside environment.
