These luxury homes will make you want to pack right away!
If we are going to talk about modern living we need to talk about connection to nature, minimal designs, natural lighting and plenty of comfort. Nowadays architecture is not just about aesthetics, it’s about creating health-focused concepts that foster well-being and provide refugee from the stressful world we live in.
Often luxury homes feature statement patterns, luxurious textiles and opulent structures, yet we definitely cannot forget about full height windows, open-plan living spaces and outdoor pools & gardens if we want to be up to date on the latest trends.
Since we at LUXXU are faithful supporters of modern living and design we gathered 5 homes we believe to be the ultimate definition of the concept. Take a look below!
INVISIBLE HOUSE, AUSTRALIA
Named ‘Australian House of the Year’, and winner of a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Award for International Excellence, this unique, brave luxury home is cleverly positioned under the brow of a ridge to maximize aspect and weather protection.
This four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence represents the ultimate rural retreat: a one-of-a-kind, highly crafted shelter offering slipstream entree from a busy urban world to a reflective, natural one; a promise of ‘slowing down’, of connection.
Architecturally shaped like a butterfly, the ocean dances below the home, rainbows of light twirl through the glass walls, and the majesty of nature embraces your soul upon arrival.
The luxury home is alive with ocean drama, swaying cypress trees, quiet sunrises, and flamboyant sunsets. Estate evokes spirituality with the movement of nature all around, creating an ambiance of tranquility. The home is a rare architectural masterpiece, sure to be coveted by global estate collectors worldwide.
AMAGANSETT, NEW YORK
A modernist era gem, this iconic Amagansett retreat is a fully-restored original from the “Amenity” project conceived by noted architect Richard Bender in the early 1960’s as a cluster of linear light-infused beach cottages occupying a 20 acre private enclave surrounded by woodlands, preserved land and communal tennis.
Wrapped in extensive full-length glass, the space evokes the sensory pleasure of living under a canopy with the surrounding nature flowing through the space. The interior design is keenly updated with aged pine flooring, rustic beamed wood ceilings, retrofitted luxe baths and oak cabinetry color blocked with Bender’s original palette.
In this stunning residence it’s possible to enjoy spectacular, unobstructed views of the Jordanelle and Uinta Mountains from the extensive deck or the floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap the entire front of the house.
The main level offers a wide open floor plan for seamless entertainment of family and friends. Five ensuite bedrooms, a private gym room, home theater and wet bar are just a few of the luxurious amenities this home has to offer.
