Driveway View of Modern Home With Full Window Wall
A classic car shines in the driveway of this modern home. A full wall of windows highlights the brightness of the home's indoor lighting. Natural rock beds and a short privacy wall add texture to the home's smooth finishes and flat yard.
The covered, concrete patio features a view of the minimalist courtyard as well as the home's exterior consisting of untreated cedar siding and corrugated steel. Natural materials give the design a modern industrial look.
The house sits right on the canals of Ventura, California and has its own dock with room for two boats. Every aspect of the design places emphasis on the view; the entire back wall is glass and steel with a large patio that extends to the water's edge.
Despite the facade's strong linear elements, the home sits on a steeply sloping lot. The only flat area was allocated to the carport. The floor plan was laid out in response to the natural features of the property and its orientation.
The landscaping surrounding this Southwestern style home is low-maintenance and low-water, with beds of tan gravel contrasting sharply with bright green plants and trees. Slim channels funnel water in and around the yard.
Sculpted glass walls and modern lines characterize this luxury home in Lugano, Switzerland, which is designed by architect Milan Jacopo Mascheroni. The 3,658-square-foot home has views of Lake Lugano and surrounding mountains.
