Expansive Glass-Back Abodes

The Green House by Maniera Architects and Associates is Stunning

— May 6, 2014 — Eco
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.
