Concrete wall giving structure inside a house in the California desert


Deavita would like to familiarize you with yet another architect designed and decorated home in a cozy and extraordinary way. The credit goes to the American architect Olson Kundig whose spectacular projects can not go unnoticed. Today, we present “Sawmill”, a family refuge located in the California desert. Kundig designed the house so as not to harm the natural landscape. Indeed, the main objective was to create a home in full harmony with nature and that is why architects have focused on recovered materials. In the next gallery, you will also discover the super spacious and bright interior and a concrete wall giving it structure.

The concrete wall delimits the different living spaces and is in full balance with the whole

The architects decided to combine different materials in order to create a balanced living space where life is good. In addition, these materials create a nice trend contrast while remaining in full harmony with each other. And here is the proof above: the concrete wall, the leather furniture and the wooden elements echo each other. Read on to discover more details and a modern look at the “Sawmill” house.

The interior with industrial touches enjoys abundant natural light thanks to the large panoramic windows. So, this is partly true because in fact we are talking about a sliding glass wall set in motion by the wheel that you can notice above. Thus, the cozy living room opens onto the outdoor living space to allow residents to better admire the desert landscape. A rustic note invites itself in the living room thanks to the raw wooden bench.

Moreover, we can not deny that the concrete wall gives structure to the interior while remaining faithful to the whole. In addition, the architects have installed the fireplace surrounded by glasses facilitating its use.
