Glass-Walled Viewing Rooms

Jan Skuratowski's House M Offers Views of the Town's Horizon

— May 8, 2017 — Art & Design
If adages have any value, then the residents of Jan Skuratowski's 'House M' shouldn't throw stones. The home in Mohlin, Switzerland, features living rooms with glass walls that offer spectacular views of the town's horizon.

House M is on the outskirts of town, sitting on a raised hillside. This elevation gives the house a great vista for taking in the quaint town, and Jan Skuratowski's decision to include glass windows only takes further advantage of that vantage.

Though there aren't many buildings up on the hill, House M is built next to another property that was initially erected in the 1980s. Without abandoning its modern aesthetic, House M manages to fit stylistically with this neighboring home thanks to the use of the timber that covers it.
Trend Themes
1. Glass-walled Viewing Rooms - Opportunity for architectural firms to incorporate glass walls in residential designs to offer breathtaking views and enhance the visual connection with the surroundings.
2. Town Horizon Architecture - Potential for developers to create homes and buildings on elevated hillside locations to maximize panoramic views and provide a unique living experience.
3. Integration of Modern and Traditional Aesthetics - Chance for designers and builders to blend modern design elements with traditional materials to create visually appealing structures that harmonize with the existing architecture.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture and Design - Architects and designers can explore innovative ways to integrate glass walls in residential projects, elevating the living experience and connecting inhabitants with their surroundings.
2. Real Estate Development - Real estate developers can capitalize on the demand for unique and panoramic views by constructing homes and buildings in elevated hillside locations.
3. Construction and Materials - Construction companies and material suppliers can offer timber as a versatile and sustainable building material that can provide a modern yet harmonious appearance in architectural projects.
