Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
With the iconic Sunset Boulevard at its feet, the contemporary Openhouse nestled on a steep slope in the Hollywood Hills is a great modern style statement from afar. XTEN Architecture are the guys standing behind the awesome state of art. The bold residential design features retaining walls that are built into the hillside, placing the main living area within the landscape and allowing for two levels of garden terraces.
The major part the makes up this building is glass which consists a total of 44 sliding glass panels. Each glass is measuring seven by 10 feet which allows the front and rear facades of the house to slide open, blurring the boundaries between indoors and out. Additional fixed panels of glass and mirror reflect the cool, contemporary ambiance of this trendy spot where nature meets contemporary urban living.
Building finishes are few in number but applied in a multiplicity of ways throughout the project, furthering the experience of continuous open space from interior to exterior. With all the glass walls completely open the house becomes a platform, open to hillside gardens and cinematic views over Los Angeles.
With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
