Windows on two sides of a room balance daylight and create a spacious feeling; windows on just one side of a room create a cave-like feeling and promote glare. Windows set high in a wall can provide daylight while preserving privacy; however a room with these high windows, often called clerestories, will feel tight and boxy if it does not also have lower windows on another wall for views. A window wall that wraps around the end of a room, can be an especially dramatic way to celebrate a view -- as long as there is an overhang to protect from too much direct sunlight.
This modern vacation home was designed for a smaller second home purpose, making the most of a small house footprint. House character is expressed in continuing connection of interior and exterior spaces. Spacious kitchen and great room were designed as one continuing space in an open floor plan. Main living area has a higher ceiling which increases the volume of the space. Window positioning allows to capture views in a different direction bringing continuing sun light in the house. The master bedroom is located separately from the living area allowing privacy and comfort. The master suite is also opens to the porch giving opportunities for outside activities. Second bedroom could be used as Dan, Hobby Room, etc. allowing guests to stay overnight. One of the main tasks of this tiny house was to have as much storage as possible which brings the ideas of pushed in closet and the living room shelf-wall. House layout has a great flexibility options and room areas could be extended to have more space if necessary. Variation of exterior cladding gives you a choice of house’s exterior appearance according to your own taste. Few exterior options are showcased using Natural Wood, Vinyl and Brick Veneer Siding. Interior design in this case show what possibilities home has from inside. This is only suggestion of how house could look from inside and we believe that everyone will design their own interior space according to their specific living taste.
A good floor plan makes the traffic flow between the major living areas easy and graceful, without creating bottlenecks or dead-end spaces that might trap guests at a party, or make it difficult to get from one part of the house to another. Here are examples of floor plans with flexible circulation.
When we plan to build a new home, the floor plan is a treasure map, written in a symbolic language and promising the fulfillment of a dream. When we “read” a floor plan we imagine the simple lines and arc’s stretching into walls, doors and windows, we imagine ourselves in a “home,” and we wonder how the spaces will feel both empty and filled with life. But the language of floor plans can be subtle. Experienced designers, builders, and home enthusiasts are regularly surprised by how different a finished home feels from what they imagined.
