Transparent and Opaque Modern H House

August 6, 2010

I specially love glassy house or building. But I don’t know why, since i’ve came here, San francisco and Berkeley, there are not so many houses like that.

Anyway, this time i am going to introduce you to the Transaparent and Opaque Modern H House, how’s special is it? Let’s see

Transparent and opaque Modern H House by Wiel Arets Architects

Taking 4 years in completion in the year of 2005 up to 2009 this H House by Wiel Aret Architects located in Maastricht, Netherlands is simply astonishing. The simple modern house from distance able to trick my senses that it was actually a water reflection when it’s being photographed, but after you look closely you will notice that the house is two storey building which looks relatively and closely similar between each level.

This modern house was made for clients which the couple has occupation as a dancer and as an actor. The single loft like home has two smaller independent spaces where adjacent to this main volume you will find the entrance and bathroom. I love the combination of transparent and opaque glass, with the sliding and fixed portion of the modern home design facade. The transparent glasses will give enough lighting thus you will only need small portion of lighting bring towards the house and it means that you save energy.

The spaces of the house designed by Wiel Arets Architects are full with richness due to the layering of this unadorned configuration which is then supported by the good use and combination of material and variations.
