A modern family house in the middle of the forest – that’s how heavy metal can be described in a nutshell. But anyone who thinks that this building is a common example of minimalist architecture is mistaken. The stylish facade cladding made of steel gives the villa an exotic look.
Modern single-family house in the middle of the forest opens up to the landscape
The client commissioned the architects from Huff Projects with the task of a modern detached house to design and finish. He also set the specification for a steel-clad facade. It may sound unusual at first, but the explanation is very simple – the homeowner ran a family business where steel was made and was inspired by this aspect of his professional life. The architects accepted the challenge and designed a one-story building with clear lines according to the minimalist basic principles. The abundantly glazed outer walls allow a distant view of the beautiful wooded landscape – but so that it doesn’t get too hot in summer, a laser-cut detail was installed on the facade.
Modern family house with stylish furnishings
The villa has a practical Z-shape and consists of three structures. The bedrooms are on the left, a spacious living area in the middle and a garage behind the house. In the house, the individual areas are seamlessly connected to one another.
The house was furnished sparingly but very stylishly with modern built-in furniture. Also in the interior are numerous metal details / the kitchen counter, the bed headboard, the wall of the shower cubicle / that were set as accents. The use of wood loosens the cold austerity of the metal and creates a cozy ambience.
