Horizontal Dream House with Large Expanses of Glass

Hong Kong Villa is a dream house that is located in Shek-O, an historic fishing village in the southeast corner of Hong Kong Island. It takes full advantage of surrounding landscape with large expanses of glass that open to views in every direction. Strong horizontal lines extend from the building into the landscape, creating large covered terraces protected from the semi-tropical climate. There are also plenty of features that make the house modern and stylish, for example: transitions between indoors and outdoors are seamless, angles are right, shapes are simple and so on. The interiors are richly appointed using both native teak and imported woods from the Pacific Northwest. The entertaining and private living spaces are on a single level, and the garage, servants’ quarters and other support spaces occupy a lower level, tucked into the sloping site. { Interiors designed by Olson Kundig Architects | Photos by Benjamin Benschneider }

    This house is one of the most awesome homes you have posted. Captures elegance while also a splash of fun creative energy. Love it. Thanks for sharing. The furniture is simple yet is complimentary to the whole house. I will keep reading in hopes of sharpening my eyes to decorate like this. Love the earthy gold tones and the glass to let in light and create depth. Fantastic!

    This is a fabulous design. I love the clean lines and the expansive use of windows not only to allow for great view from the inside out, but also to make use of the natural light coming in. This is definitely a house that dreams are made of!
