This is a beautiful one-storey modern minimalist house that we design for a client in North Carolina, United States. The site is located a bit hidden from the road, surrounded by lavish natural greenery. It has a magnificent view towards a natural lake at the rear side of the house.
The client wishes to create privacy while at the some time to get the ability to enjoy the natural view at the backyard. By nature, the house can be reached after riding down the hilly road into the site for a few minutes, and is placed on a soil grade below the road, making the house totally hidden.
This 7,000 square-foot house is built on single level foundation system thorough the building. It forms an H-shape with open living dining concept and service / garage area at the front side, and private children wing’s and parent’s wing on the rear side. The whole parts of the house are wholly connected by a large open pool deck that has linear infinity swimming pool facing towards the lake behind.
The style of the house is simple, transparent, utilizing natural material finishes that blend in to the surrounding nature. Flooring, ceiling, and wall material finishes are continuously applied both in outdoor and indoor areas, enhanced by floor-to-ceiling glass windows, thus creating a house that makes you feel like you are in the inside and in the nature at the same time.
