Modern farmhouses and treehotel

VitraHaus by the swiss architetecture firm Herzog & de Meuron in Weil am Rhein, Germany. A fun interpretation of a modern barn/ farmhouse the VitraHaus is a showroom for the furniture factory Vitra. The VitraHaus opening to public in 2010.

We really enjoy farmhouse and barn look architecture. Why we enjoy it? because it’s  interesting when the mix of new and old comes together in a modern farmhouse or treehotel. This modern contemporary farmhouse design house that is located in Denmark, designed by Cebra Architects. The contrast of the black roof and facade, with the stark white cut-outs in its exterior walls adds an interesting focal point in this countryside. I especially like the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows that minimize the boarders between the outside and inside. This barn and farmhouse makes living close to nature a more modern approach.

This modern farm-house is two buildings, with one roof overlapping the other at staggered heights. Located in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. Another cool feature is that the worn, weather-beaten facade is repurposed from a barn.

The Mirror cube designed by Swedish architects Tham & Videgard Hansson will have a small kitchen, terrace, living area and sleeping area. Perfect place to stay in the treetops for a vacation, away from the hustle and bustle of crowded city life.
