That definitely seems to be the growing trend as designers and architect houses are being asked to create structures that specifically take into account the surroundings and ensure that the blend into the natural setting seamlessly while offering unabated view of the natural habitat.

One of the characteristic features of most contemporary home designs doled out by A-cero Architects is the way in which they use dark stone to create structures that are both appealing and exude an understated class. This sleek home in Pozuelo de Alarcón in Spain is another case in the point as it employs stone dark granite and marble travertine in an elaborate fashion to create a private structure that is wrapped up in delightful curves.
The lower floor contains the kids’ bedrooms the guestrooms and other facilities like the gymnasium and the home theater which are beautifully integrated with the rest of the house. The central attraction of the residence though is the serene and minimalist pond of Buddhist inspiration that should put any worries to rest.
Overlooking the port Philip Bay area the home designed by Maddison Architects is an amalgamation of two distinct structures into one. The idea is to bring together a south and a north facing facade with simple and elegant design. While this gives the house a unique look it also helps in terms of energy management and ventilation a great deal.
