Contemporary Home With Glass Bridge
A bridge with glass sides offers a unique view of the infinity pool below and is an interesting architectural addition to this luxurious L.A. home. The extensive use of glass adds to the home's open, contemporary vibe, which is expressed in every room of the house.
FINNE Architects chose windows and oversized sliding glass doors of black anodized aluminum for this contemporary home. “I like to call the main living space ‘a large front porch,’ because the windows and large sliding glass doors create a feeling of being outdoors,” says Nils Finne.
Contemporary Home Exterior With Large Glass Windows
This stunning contemporary home exterior features corrugated metal panels paired with beautiful wood accents. Large wall-to-wall windows provide natural light and a gorgeous view of the surrounding evergreen landscape, while sliding glass doorways create open air spaces, allowing the best of indoor and outdoor life.
This light-filled office looks out onto a zen-like courtyard with soft curves and a tall brick fence for privacy. A large grouping of framed, black-and-white photos fit with the home's vintage design, while the paneled walls continue onto the home's modern exterior.
Sliding doors can work in a wide range of architectural styles and configurations, including a curved opening like the one shown here. “Sliding glass walls offer more flexibility in configuration than folding glass walls. Sliding glass panels stack or disappear into a pocket when open, opening up living spaces to the outdoors,” says Ximena Rojas, Marketing Director for Panda Windows & Doors.
Contemporary Home Office with Built-in Bookshelves, Tufted Office Chair, and Glass Desk
This striking, contemporary home office space feels as luxurious as it is functional. The glass-top table is the room's most unique feature, with a molecule-inspired brass base. A starburst mirror behind creates an inspirational aura, and personal affects displayed in the custom built-in shelves conjure memories of grand adventures.
Contemporary Home Bar With Custom Back-Lit Shot Glass Storage, Tall Barstools and Stone Flooring
This custom crafted shot glass display case adds a beautifully unique functional element to this home bar. The back lighting adds a cool light element to the warm look of the space. Stone flooring adds a textural element to the room below the tall, contemporary barstools and small, sleek bar.
Transitional Dining Room with Ceiling Dome, Retractable Wall
A wide, retractable glass wall opens this elegant dining room to the outdoors. Crisp while walls, arched doorways and a smooth ceiling with a domed recess combine to form a neutral backdrop for clean-lined, contemporary furnishings. Meanwhile, traditional lighting bridges the home's modern style and Mediterranean-inspired architecture.
Brown floral wallpaper and a soft mix of contemporary and traditional pieces bridge the gap between this Florida home's contemporary aesthetic and traditional architecture. Berman Rosetti ottomans rest on a rug by Wool and Silk.
