Top 10 Architect's Homes around the world
1. Hemeroscopium House
Architect: Anton Garcia-Abril
A house that seems to defy gravity, it did however take the architect a whole year to get the engineering right. Ironically once the engineering was 100%, it only took 7 days to assemble and get the house up and running!
2. Alden B Dow’s Home and Studio
Architect: Alden B Dow
Alden designed his home and studio with angle-down roofs along a stream and plum grove in the park-like garden his father had owned. This amazing design was completed in 1941 and could still stand as something new and exciting in today’s standards!
3. R128 House
Architect: Werner Sobek
Four-story glass glazed house by Werner Sobek is breath-taking, well design and engineered. Sobek is yet again another well-known architect proving that using recycle materials can create a brand-new, modern home that fits in today.
4. Graham House
Architect: Arthur Erickson
After being inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, Arthur Erickson created his own version of a modern house in 1962 that could even be considered a top design of today. The use of wood allows the structure to perfectly blend with its rocky and natural surroundings.
5. Taliesin West
Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright
Franks Lloyd Wrights’ Estate known as the Taliesin North was designed with lime stone as the main material. The Taliesin North was designed in 1911 which makes this design way ahead of its time with its modern finishes one would see today.
6. View Hill House
Architect: Denton Corker Marshall
Comprised of two rectangular boxes on top of each other to form a cantilever. The design feels as if it might topple off, creating a unique look and a different feel. The use of dark colour allows the structure to blend with the natural farm surroundings.
6. Roszak Residence
Architect: Thomas Roszak
Mr Roszak designed and built an 8,820-foot glass house to accommodate him and his family. The glass house experiments with transparency and reflectivity with an open façade leaving a extraordinary modern look.
7. Tower House
Architect: Peter Gluck
Built as a holiday house in Ulster Town, New York. The Tower House features an elevated living room and the building towers 9 meters in the air. This is to accommodate more rooms and features whilst minimizing the eco footprint implanted by the building.
8. The Environmental House
Architect: Manit Rastogi & Sonali Rastogi
The Environmental House is only comprised of renewable materials which includes timbers, rice paper and glass. The design however comes off completely new and hip, proving that recycling and using old material can make great modern architecture!
9. The Melnikov House
Architect: Konstantin Melnikov
Designed with more than a dozen hexagonal windows, this house is an important icon of Russian avant-garde, located in Moscow’s Arbit district and was completed all the way back in 1929.
10. Glass House/Johnson House
Architect: Phillip Johnson
Designed and completed in 1959, Philip Johnson was one of few architects that inspired the modern contemporary style at such an early stage of history. The use of glass walls in the late 1950’s was unheard of until Philip Johnson took lead.
