This next home takes the tree house concept to an entirely different level! Uniquely orb-like in shape The HemLoft was built by Joel Allen after an attempt to retire at age 26 proved unsuccessful. Yes behind this interesting dwelling is an equally interesting story!
Adding to this are solar water heating technology ambient natural lighting and 60000 liters of water storage system that ensure that the home further retained its ‘green’ tag. Designed by Tim Stewart Architects it is a wonderful example of sustainable architecture.
The 2200 feet home sports a living room dining space a spacious terrace and a pool and each of these is visually integrated with the other leading to interiors that seem both spacious and naturally connected. The ergonomic and unconventional décor on the inside also give the home an exceptional look. The smart use of glass ensures that the home’s owners still get wonderful view of the sands and the waves as they wake up each morning.
The idea here is to create a that mixes form with function and yet stand out from the pack. And to achieve this they have used a rectangular box-like template with this small house that is set 100 miles south of the city of Lima.
Of course in the quest for finding that bold new look one cannot go too far and needs to find the absolute right balance. The Penthouse at the in Toronto Canada does exactly that with its combination of the classic with the modern.
The main rectangular structure is enhanced by sleeping and service spaces that sport the same form factor and add a sense of symmetry to the beach house. Warm and tranquil lighting along with the use of refreshing colors and shades make this a balanced boxed delight.
In fact these contemporary dwellings can serve as ideal housing options for first-time buyers students military personnel and many others. You have to give snaps to designers who prioritize making cutting edge housing available to all. As the L41 website states “Small is beautiful.”
