Nestled in the corner of a rustic plot, this one-storey house has charm, elegance and modernism all bundled into the same space. It is located in the hillside of Berkeley, California, USA and has stunning views of the surrounding landscape and countryside. The architects and designers at Koch Architects have tried to minimise the barrier between indoor and outdoor spaces, creating a house that blends beautifully well into its surroundings. The exterior has been built using a medium coloured wood, one of which matches the bark of the surrounding trees. Inside, the house feels light and spacious as well as being inviting and cosy. Each room has a slightly different style, with the bedroom being ultra sleek and modern and the bathroom being a touch quirky with lime green tiles and playful art.
