Most of us are happy if we have a good view out of at least one window.
The following designs are among those from Travis Price Architects that stand out for people who appreciate minimal obstructions to the outdoor scenery.
The architect’s own home, the Price Residence is located in Washington D.C. and has no shortage of views. Though one side hides the most alluring feature of the design, a walk around to the other reveals a transparent outlook to the encasing woods.
Many constructions completely alter the landscape once the building process begins, but this architect seemingly knows how to blend in material and form. The vertical structure fits right in with tall trees, evoking nature.
From the architect about the home:
Sadhu….Tree Eating Rocks…..Floating Steel Soul…..
Another home that includes a striking element of glass can be seen in one their projects that included an exploded glass addition.
Who wouldn’t love to do this to their roof?
Though a contemporary spin to the existing home, it adds a sense of character and charm that feels like it goes with the home and gives it more eccentric appeal. The beautifully landscaped yard is probably nice to look down at from the glass room.
Definitely adding a new look to the rooftop, this addition cleverly uses otherwise wasted space. It also is a smart way to retain privacy, but still have all the advantages of a glass enclosure.
Perfect for an indoor greenhouse or a sitting area, this four seasons space is an impressive addition.
Architects who aren’t afraid to go bold with glass understand that one of the best parts of a home can often be the outdoors.
