They not only tried to make that happen but actually succeeded. The house is located in Italy, on a site among vineyards with views towards the nearby Alps.
It features a 300 square meter floor plan which follows the elongated shape of the plot and maintains a low profile. This is not by any means similar to the architecture that defines this historic town but nevertheless manages to feel at home out here.
The G House looks and feels very calm and simple. It has a clean and minimalist design, a linear floor plan with all the spaces on the same level and it has large expanses of glass which capture the magnificent views and brings them inside.
The combination of concrete and glass gives it a modern vibe and is in tone with the clean and simple aesthetic that the architects went for. The frameless sliding doors are pretty amazing especially in the living room where they span 35 meters, across the entire space. That’s also the length of the infinity pool which sits parallel to the house.
The Alps and the nearby landscape provide a wonderful environment which promotes clarity and relaxation
Thanks to its low profile and overall simplicity, the house becomes almost invisible
The frameless windows and sliding doors look very sleek and maximize the views
The infinity edge pool also takes full advantage of the location and the extraordinary views
Part of what helps this house blend in so well has to do with the selection of materials and finishes
The living space is quite special as it includes this cool exhibition area for the cars
The elongated and linear layout imposes a fairly limited range of options throughout the interior
The large glazed surfaces and the green roof combined with a simple concrete shell help the house become one with the land
The G House is a very nice blend of modesty and glamour, perfectly balanced inside and out
The palette of materials and finishes is reduced to very few options paired with neutral colors
By maintaining a minimalist and neutral interior design, the architects highlight the tranquility of the landscape
Don’t worry about people stealing your design work. Worry about the day they stop.
