After all what could be more beautiful than overlooking a blue sea a dense forest tall mountains or a city skyline? The pictures below envision Single Hauz in a variety of unforgettable settings. With large glass windows and a spacious balcony we think this residence is well worth the stair-step climb!
The formerly burnt and deserted Round Tower in Gloucestershire has been included by London architecture studio De Matos Ryan in a modern family home. The house has been built underground such as to not undermine the lone presence of historical monument dominating the landscape.
The cantilevered roofs along with the lavish use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensure that there is plenty of natural ventilation along with some lovely views of the green that lay outside. While the common areas and the sitting space provides for some lovely views the bedrooms offer contrasting privacy which ensure that you have the best of both worlds.
The home is surrounded by beautiful forest area and to give its denizens the best possible view along with complete privacy (which is not to find in this part of the woods) the architects have used glass and wood extensively to create a sustainable and stylish structure.
The large sun terrace with a luxurious pool mean that you might end up spending more time outdoors than indoors! Of course the very design of the penthouse ensures that there are very few boundaries between the interiors and the world outside and the interiors with furniture in soft and neutral shades add to its beauty. This is all about living it up in style!
However underground houses are known to have excellent natural insulation and climactic regulation in all seasons. Situated partially beneath the tower the home opens through 4 fully glazed walls toward a sunken central courtyard.
The natural lighting is provided from this central yard another lateral landscape scoop with a swimming pool and round openings cut into the landscape. Thus an effect of light and shadowed isles is created throughout the house. The Round Tower contains further accommodation areas and a terrace with a panoramic view on top.
