The Window House gives keen perspective into what modern dream home design can be if you surrender to light and illusion. Designed by LADAA, this incredible luxury dwelling is, in essence, a glass jewel box where boundaries between inside and out render invisible.
The rear entrance is reached via an elevated deck in which the sparkling pool with triple fountains in nestled into. Two huge lounging platform beds are built into the terrace and seem to gracefully hover over the water. The views alone from this palatial outdoor retreat are stunning–green mountains, lush trees and blue skies for miles.
With a backdrop of black-and-white and refined finishes, this home resonates with a gleaming, almost ethereal, beauty as one transitions from room to room. The concept of spaces being shared equally with the outdoors is stunning and occurs through the implementation of a plethora of glass panels and partitions throughout the house.
What is intriguing is how the glass, while always transparent, is also colored in select spots. Take the all-white bathroom popping with a sheet of fuchsia glass installed in the walk-in shower–love it! Or the huge smoky glass panels: a couple protruding at the front entranceway and one as a partition wall in the master bedroom.
And it doesn’t cease there. Glazed balustrades, crystal chandeliers, custom glass cabinets, lacquered surfaces and a cool ceiling fixture comprised of a panel of colored LED lights all create a non-stop energy and mesmerizing glow within this contemporary home.
An elongated “wing” of timer-clad terraces resides on the main living side of the home, where panels of glass encase these gathering, dining and lounging spaces. Two sets of fully retractable glass doors allow for this interaction with fresh air and nature, while a central void receives a mature palm tree piercing through its core–this element is nothing short of stunning!
Tucked into a hillside, Window House is a luxury modern dream home boasting jaw-dropping reflections and refractions of light.
