A sprawling ranch house is usually the style that competes with the red barn in the background. Go for that same red on the exterior of your home and your whole property will look like the picture perfect farm. Black on a ranch house? That’s exactly right. If you find that your ranch house is a little too traditional for your chic modern tastes, try painting the exterior black. Suddenly you’ve remodeled the entire feel without having to pack up and move.
The fireplace is front and center in the living area, however the entire house is heated with geothermal power. In fact, the house is not even connected to the energy grid that supplies the island. The architects used a special system that helps warm the structure by recycling thermal energy. Even better, almost all of the electricity that the house uses is solar-based. Between the LED lights, highly efficient insulating aluminum shell and the triple glass window frames, the house is exceptionally energy efficient and sustainable.
A modern and sustainable villa that takes full advantage of its serene waterside location sits on an island at the outskirts of Amsterdam. It’s a stunning sustainable design by Marc Architects of that serves as a functional urban home as well as escape for its owners. The colors throughout are earthy and natural, connecting the interior with the outdoors through natural textures, plenty of large windows and strategically used rustic touches.
