A stylish additional with traditional overtones galore! A luxurious home that is sustainable and charming at the same time? It’s hard to find but we have it for you folks. Actually Dallas-based architect Tom Reisenbichler got it for you.
The owners of the place not only wanted a spacious and simple look but they asked for a structure that could also double up easily as a small hotel when needed. The placement of the inner patio ensures there is ample natural light while the high ceiling and the large rooms truly give the villa the look of a lavish retreat.
The area separated by the moving glass walls also contains a library and space for children’s activity room with a huge whiteboard on one of the walls. By using the glass doors the living space can be separated from this area as well and hence the noise can be kept out whenever needed while still keeping an eye on the kids!
The use of glass for this purpose has several benefits as it is easy to use retractable glass walls when compared to other materials thanks to their lighter weight but more importantly it only keeps the noise out while still giving visual access.
Striking features like the wooden walls in the kitchen or the relaxing area and the wooden ceiling on the outside certainly kick it up a notch but it’s the warm atmosphere of the living room and all other spaces that gets to me for the Caruth Boulevard Residence.
