In the past we have seen some amazing penthouses and New York City townhouses that have swept us off our feet with their grandeur. The innovative architects at Turett are at the forefront of this smart trend that not only turns narrow townhouses into sensational modern homes but also gives old structures a dazzling new lease on life. Transforming a that was also used as a painter’s studio into a handsome home for a family of four this latest project from Turett is another brilliant case in point!
Spread across three different levels and the custom-crafted townhouse exudes an airy and spacious vibe thanks to the square clean-lined architecture which visually enhances the compact rooms. A variety of textures in the form of exposed concrete walnut wood and stainless steel give the interior a unique appeal.
With homeowners increasingly starting to move away from the urban chaos these beautiful natural retreats are turning into much sought-after properties. Elegant tranquil and cozy the modern lakeside house is all about bringing together the best of both worlds.
When we talk of lakeside homes the first image that comes to mind is of traditional or modern retreats that borrow from the classic cabin style. While some of the remarkable lakefront residences that we already showcased challenge this stereotype this fascinating home in Carinthia by Spado Architects shatters that myth completely! Minimal at every turn this house employs translucent white glass panels and concrete to merge privacy with unabated lake views.
The interior is connected seamlessly with the large deck outside and the panoramic views become an organic part of the indoors. Blurring this line between the interior and the outdoors played an important role in giving the small house a ‘vacation retreat’ vibe.
