Much of modern design focuses largely on interior spaces, perfectly molded to a simple, clean lifestyle. However, in these visualizations from the Israeli designers at Ando Studio, the modern aesthetic meets the unpredictability of nature. By incorporating the green, natural surroundings into these home designs, the spaces become unique, shady, and comfortable while still maintaining impeccable style.
The boxy shape of this house is certainly modern, but it rises to two stories for ample interior space. The back patio has curtains and a canopy so that the outdoor area can be enjoyed in any weather while an in-ground pool shimmers with beautiful blue tiles.
The main living area of this house utilizes an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen opening out into a full dining room and living room. Large sliding glass doors can let in both sun and fresh air when the climate allows.
Another interpretation of the home’s back deck features an outdoor dining area for truly tasteful entertaining. The awning along with the surrounding trees provide a shady respite from bright sun.
Although the private pond feature is manmade it brings nature literally up to the doorstep of the home.
In this design, nature is once again not forgotten. An elevated walkway, made with wood planks, leaves space for trees to grow up and through it, giving shade to the house and offering a spectacular view of the grounds and surrounding areas.
A personal firepit in the sunken outdoor space means entertaining and relaxing are easy and luxurious.
An oversized, ornately carved outdoor chair give the patio a comforting feel as residents can easily relax in the shade of their home. At every turn, this space offers an opportunity to enjoy the surrounding forest without giving up modern conveniences or privacy.
