In The Midst of a Wood: Tower like structure has outstanding views of the surrounding woodland with a simple, yet functional interior

18 April, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

Right on the peak of a wooded hill, this very tall and slim construction has wonderful views of the surrounding woodland and beyond. Balance Associates Architects designed this tower of a house in collaboration with their clients in or to create a steady retreat which reflects simplicity, style and functionality. The exterior utilises wooden and metal facades that slightly overlap to add a bit of depth to the structure, while the overlapping roof becomes a shade for the balcony at the very top of the building. From the balcony, the views are outstanding, with a flood of green, yellow and orange coloured trees and a magnificent lake to gaze upon in the distance. Inside, the interior is modern, with wooden floors and ceilings, beige painted concrete walls and simple yet functional furnishings.
