When one typically thinks of a romantic meadow, concrete walls and chrome finishes rarely come to mind. However, the Gelotte Hommas designed House in a Mountain Meadow is a stunning example of a how a contemporary design aesthetic can be both industrial and warm, modern and romantic. Below are several design features that make this unique home integrate so well with its naturally breathtaking surroundings.
Exposed, light wood beams and a vaulted ceiling create a jaw-dropping open concept living space. The house’s uniform white walls and gray accents keep all the spaces feeling bright and airy, while blue and green pops of color hearken back to nature. The warms blues also prevent the space from feeling too clinical.
The most unique feature of the house is a concrete wall that runs both through the interior and the exterior of the home. Not only does this wall promote seamless continuity between both spaces, but it also creates an intimate hallway that contrasts nicely with the openness of the rest of the house.
The connection with the outdoors is additionally highlighted by the use of indoor plants within the design. Plants are potted delicately over the kitchen cabinets and furrow between openings in the concrete wall. The home also houses an intimate courtyard full of lush greenery.
The house was built into the mountainside in such a way that it can’t be seen from a above or below. This privacy allows for large windows that allow the homeowners to soak in beautiful views.
