Yellow Mediterranean Home Exterior
This sunny Mediterranean home is a historic gem in Coral Gables, Florida. Designers worked carefully (and got the architectural board's approval) to bring an updated, more functional design to its kitchen and other rooms.
Mediterranean Outdoor Living Space With Beautiful Pool
The inside blends seamlessly with the outdoors to create a stunning living area, complete with outdoor kitchen and dining. A stone patio leads out to a beautiful pool and hot tub, as well as a covered seating area. The whole space is perfect for entertaining.
This home's owners are obsessed with color and wanted bright color on every inch of the home's exterior. Various shades of blue connect the house, sited on the ridge of a hill, to the the sky that serve as its backdrop. The complementary orange creates a dynamic contrast. Because the house sits in a special zoning area, the design team could not increase the square footage of the existing house. Instead, they built a separate structure and connected it to the old house with a structurally independent deck.
The homeowners love to entertain, so the house is designed to create an open and casual atmosphere with a strong connection to the outdoors. The home is oriented toward the best view of the river while maintaining good solar orientation for taking advantage of solar heat gain in the winter and keeping out the hot summer sun. The large roof over the living room serves to shade large areas of glass in the summer, while geothermal heat pumps and high levels of insulation help keep it warm and energy efficient in the winter. With such an extreme climate in Big Sky, Mont., the house is specifically designed to withstand both sides of the temperature spectrum.
Exterior View of Enchanting Wood Cabin With Green Roof and Gorgeous, Open Surrounding Land
Expansive land and rolling hills set a gorgeous open atmosphere around this cabin home. The wood shines beautifully against the natural green color. A green roof compliments the plant life in the surrounding land. A look at the exterior architecture highlights the columns, porches and angled roof.
