Homes intended for family life do not have to be boring, and the following 2 designs are reminders.
Called the Earth House Project, this concept design from Molos Group presents an interesting spin on a single family home. Built into the ground, the plans show how the structure would look if the landscape helped shape the exterior.
The home is envisioned to be set in an area outside of the city, enveloped in natural surroundings. The sharp angles are softened by how the structure appears to lay in the grass.
The architects stated about the project:
“…we believe that the beauty in architecture is a reflection of the beauty of nature.”
A creative idea for a family space it would also likely be an energy efficient choice, as the way it is recessed into the ground would help regulate the internal temperature.

Created for a large family, this asymmetrically shaped home from Y+M Design Office offers a clever layout to go with the sharp, weather accommodating roof design.
The Rain Shelter House is spread out into different blocks, each forming a different unit. The separate spaces culminate in the centrally shared living area.
The unique rooftop covers the middle of the home, creating an open courtyard.
The roof style and positioning of the house enables it to block out strong winds and cold, and it effectively repels the rain. Also, it is made to keep out direct sun but still collect natural light through the smartly placed windows.
Along with the out-of-the-ordinary exterior frame there are other neat features inside. For instance, the ladder leading up to the loft study and other inviting, kid-friendly nooks are among the fun touches that reflect the need to play and unwind.
With warm tones and a balance of private areas and social zones, this house has an unrestricted and fresh feel.

These lifestyle designs formed around nature and function make smart use of materials and land layout, and offer updated looks into the family home.
