Transparent house for a young family in California

This home near Silicon Valley in California was built in 1962 by architects Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons. The new owners decided to completely renovate the building, keeping all the authors’ original ideas: low gabled roofs, an open plan and floor-to-ceiling windows. It is thanks to such bold glazing that the house looks as if it is transparent and is almost visible right through from the entrance to the backyard. To emphasize this lightness, there no abundance of furniture and objects, while stylish minimalism prevail. This project cannot be imagined without greenery, which plays the main, not a secondary role in the house. Shrubs, trees and succulents are visible from any part of the house, which allows household members to fully immerse themselves in the atmosphere of their own Garden of Eden!

    Абсолютная фантастика. Чистота линий, воздушность, наполненность светом, гармония интерьера и экстерьера. Архитектура будущего, хоть и родом из прошлого.

    Так выглядит рай на земле. Ничего лишнего, вокруг природа, а больше ничего и не нужно.

    Лишний раз убеждаюсь, что минимализм работает при обилии света и пышной зелени за окнами, и выглядит уныло в наших широтах , когда за окном …
