If the thought of an abode that intersects a forest, river and wetland sounds simply spectacular, then this River House by Ziger/Snead Architects is sure to impress you. While a river house may have you thinking of a small log cabin, this contemporary 3500 sq. foot house in Virginia couldn't be farther from that.

The River House is made up of three differing parts: a main living quarters, guest house and a function level for just about everything else imaginable. With the serene Rappahannock River running parallel to the house, privacy and serenity are well maintained at this peaceful retreat.

Implications - Consumers continue to climb through obstacles in order to get closer to nature, and as such, companies and developers should continue to think of creative solutions that bring the outdoors in and the indoors out. While many cannot afford to create stunning eco-abodes, consumers still appreciate products that allow them to recreate green living in the city.
