A touch different from every other home on our list House Pibo in Maldegem is a partially underground structure with water-resistant walls and a garden that also morphs into its roof! The sloped roof of the semi-buried home is covered in greenery and over time the homeowner can easily turn this into a garden filled with beautiful flowering plants. On the inside a multi-level design that draws benefit from the smart insulation of the green roof ensures that life seems both bright and unique.
Nestled in the picturesque landscape of Spain Casa LLP by Alventosa Morell Arquitectes charms with a cantilevered structure and a green roof that lets it disappear into the surrounding scenery. A bioclimatic house that does all it can to become one with nature!
The interior of the home is clad in neutral hues with wood providing a change in scenery and ushering in textural contrast. A custom wall mural in the living area adds to the ‘natural’ appeal of the home even as the kitchen and the dining area act as a visual extension of this space. A smart kitchen with wooden cabinets and shelves and an ergonomic central island is illuminated by a sparkling pendant even as the dining table on wheels offers an eclectic and cool contrast.
It is a rear extension that gets the job done as the glazed timber addition now holds the new dining area kitchen and family room of the revitalized house. Crafted to ensure that those inside enjoy an open and airy living atmosphere that is accentuated by the visual connectivity with the green outdoors the nifty extension blends in with the existing structure almost seamlessly. A clean white color palette sits next to the already present exposed brick walls comfortably even as large skylights bring in a flood of natural light.
