A Dose of Modern

It’s been a little while since I last discussed modern architecture. While I am certainly not a minimalist and am more rooted in timeless style and tradition, I can’t help but enjoy looking at other interesting perspectives and ideas. This month’s issue of Interior Design features several rural residences that are small on space but big on modern details. This house, constructed from locally harvested white oak by Alchemy Architects in Blair, Wisconsin, boasts geothermal heating and passive solar shading.

How neat is this indoor covered porch? I would love to see how the light falls here at various times of the day. I also like how the hanging pendants are at varying heights.

Piet Hein Eek designed this home studio in Hilversum, Netherlands. It’s just 130 square feet, but it’s the perfect size for owner and classical musician Hans Liberg to hone his craft.

This structure, designed by Belgian firm Wim Goes Architecture, was an addition to an existing home. It floats above a man-made pond and behind the open slats are glass panels that can be opened or closed.

How pretty is this? You can’t even tell when the glass doors are open or shut.

A dose of modern…I’m inspired.
