Located in Nashville, Tennessee, United States, Tennessee Farmhouse by Meyer Davis Studio was designed as a contemporary interpretation of a hunting lodge. Right after doing numerous study research on iconic modernist residences, the architects determined on a minimalist shape that is properly linked to the Tennessee landscape: “Sitting on a grass plinth, the home acts as a simple geometric representation of the natural topography it is primarily a glass box, taking benefit of all available views. Spatial playfulness among the interior and exterior, mixed with exquisite detail of resources is what helps make this property unique.” Philip Johnson’s Glass Residence and Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House had been the major tasks that inspired this nature retreat.
Transparency is the most striking attribute of the style: “The dramatic rectilinear construction combines sleek modern geometric lines with towering walls of glass to develop a stunning, livable property with free of charge-‐flowing spaces inside and out. It is luxury expressed in its most simple terms, a glass bathroom has a private bath with wrap all around vistas, art‐filled glass corridors seem and feel like exterior rooms.” The living areas offer a feeling of a “view-inside of-a-see”, due to glass panels that separate them from the neighboring interiors.

Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement completed Panorama Residence, a refined interpretation of the classic cottage, complete with pitched metal roof and dark-stained Eastern cedar shingles. Located at the edge of a forest, in Sainte-Adèle, Canada, the residence consists of a rectangular volume pierced by several windows and livened up by an orange front door. Its interiors are warm and inviting, with wood playing a main role in the style scheme.
According to the architects, the style technique was to put daytime routines (dining room, kitchen, residing space, porch) together on the upper floor in order to make the most of the view and normal lighting. The rooms are very carefully considered out as a panoramic series running along the southeast side, ending with the porch. A cathedral ceiling supplies the most expansive volume possible on the second floor. Within the large typical location, two volumes completed in eastern cedar divide the space. The initial volume holds a steel fireplace, and the second homes practical spaces: kitchen, pantry, washroom. Orange highlights spark warm recollections.
