The LM Guest House project by Desai Chia Architecture blends rustic and contemporary design details. Revealing stunning views of its surrounding landscape, the hillside residence is the opposite of a traditional country home.

While the majority of its facade is covered with straight glass panels -- allowing for natural light penetration throughout the day -- its wood framing is kept sleek and simple rather than raw and jagged. The New York structure boasts a rectangular shape and resembles a glass box that is only accented with minimal interior partitions.

Though mostly an open concept space, this Desai Chia Architecture residence also features private areas that are strategically surrounded by a glass shell. This shell envelopes separate rooms while revealing the beauty of the great outdoors.
