The Green House by Maniera Architects and Associates is Stunning

The Green House by Maniera Architects and Associates has the ideal blend of openness and privacy. The clients for the firm wanted a place that enabled them to connect with nature in a residential area, and not be too blocked off from their surroundings.

To achieve this look, the studio used the back area looking out onto a yard for opening up the home for ample natural light. The entire back section is made out of glass, creating a seamless transition between the inside and outside of the house. What's incredible is how private it still feels, as the design has a staircase leading up to a loft bedroom at the top. The loft-style room still gives privacy, but also lets light spill over where the owners are sleeping.
