Five Homes Designed For Optimal Indoor Outdoor Living
As soon as summer warmth comes around the corner people start looking for outdoor living solutions where they can enjoy the warm weather in the comfort of their own home. A nice big backyard, a refreshing pool or a nice deck for sunbathing are perfect for making the most of the heat. Here are five of the best homes designed to fully utilize both their outdoor and indoor spaces.
Two Houses at Nichada
This project designed by Alkhemist Architects in the suburbs of Bangkok, Thailand has a double volume living area that opens up directly to the pool when the sliding glass doors seamless disappear into the structure. You couldn’t ask for a better indoor/outdoor transition than this one!
Although the space of this home is a narrow allotment, the Californian house by Coast Homes has an elongated deck and pool that run the length of the house. This unique design allows the various rooms in the home to open up to the outdoors. Not to mention, the house and landscaping are gorgeous.
The Fish House
This unique home designed by Guz Architects was made specifically for the hot and humid climate of Singapore. It’s open covered spaces are designed to protect the residents from the sun while still providing natural ventilation. Pure genius!
The Promised Land house in Amagansett, New York was designed by Bates Masi Architects and is divided into public and private wings. The sliding glass doors in the main living area open up to the central reflecting pool and outdoor space, making this indoor/outdoor integration absolutely stunning and effective.
Designed by Jonathan Segal FAIA, The Cresta home in La Jolla, California has its ground floor living room completely open up to become an outdoor room that looks as if it is floating above the water. That is truly groundbreaking design.
