Various geometric shapes and usage of eco-friendly materials on these houses give you that exalting feeling of beeing right here right now. You know… Like, future is already here!
Now, architecture of 21st century does not reply to everyones taste. More sentimental souls will find it cold and unwelcoming. These will turn to architectural designs we left behind, keeping that way part world that is slowly fading.
Some will merge old and new by renovating. That way avoiding “Ex-machina” vibe Modern Arhitecture sometimes brings.

“The Bayou Residence is a renovation to a significant architectural work originally completed by Frank Welch in 1972. “
“The Kipling house is designed for a family of five, it allows for generous open family zones oriented to large glass walls facing the street and courtyard pool.”

Geometric exterior is usualy folowed by interior where similar shapes dominate. Of course, if your designer is good there will be furniture that will manage to brake this shapes.
And, after all of that work is done, you’ll bring the details that will make it feel like home… But, is that enough for it to become home?
