SAOTA makes no compromise in their artwork. Elegant modern and luxurious, these are the main three words defining the residences erected by these architects. The dream home ahead enjoys the company of a lake through transparency in one of the most desirable locations: Geneva, Switzerland.

The establishment, entitled Lake House, serves as both a residence and an office . The client is an architecture enthusiast, this being the 4th home designed by SAOTA for him. This 4th small home covers no less then 2800 square meters of family and office space. The sculptural design materialized accedes to the owners collection of dream homes in Cape Town, Paris and Senegal.

The modern structure stands out from the first glance: fluid yet bold an rigid, it defines the shape despite the tendency to fragment the volume into shards. This spectacular structure has been designed in collaboration with  SRA Kössler & Morel Architects and it`s meant to reflect a promising African aesthetics influence in the European context. As you would expect the interior design has been envisioned by Antoni Associates, the entire home has been built on a triangular lot that`s emphasized by the surroundings. As a result the very core of the home, the living room, along with the spaces gravitating around it are outdoors-oriented, taking advantage of the surreal views.

The main volume of the home is connected to the adjacent annex via the cinema, spa area, auditorium and garages on the basement level. In the living room a fluid curved wall in glass connected to a sculptural roof canopy anchors the design into another world, creating a an extraordinary monumental welcoming space.

The contemporary structure designed in collaboration with SRA Kössler & Morel Architects reflects the promising new African aesthetic in a European context. The open, bright and inviting interiors were imagined by Antoni Associates as a luscious cocoon resting on this triangular lot where creativity shaped an outdoor-oriented dream home.

On the upper level the home shelters the private spaces like bedrooms, a lobby and en-suite, all accessed through a glass cylinder encased lift. What do you think? Define this home in just five words in the comment section bellow, we would love to hear your opinion.

High End Luxurious Retreat – North Island Villa, Seychelles http://www.homesthetics.net/high-end-luxurious-retreat-north-island-villa-seychelles/ http://www.homesthetics.net/high-end-luxurious-retreat-north-island-villa-seychelles/#comments Fri, 18 Jul 2014 10:55:04 +0000 http://www.homesthetics.net/?p=13320 We all need a capsule of fresh air from time to time, a moment of silence and deep calm among the thousands of hours that we spend monthly at our desks with our jobs.

We all need a capsule of fresh air from time to time, a moment of silence and deep calm among the thousands of hours that we spend monthly at our desks with our jobs. We may need to listen to birds talk, to hear the murmur at the feet of an infinite ocean. Each has its own way of calming down entirely. Unfortunately, high end luxurious retreats, like the one showcased bellow are not at anyone`s reach today but no one stops us from aiming for locations.

After a short exploration of the infinite and extraordinary internet we found that on the feet of the Indian Ocean one of the most luxurious retreats in the world resides. It`s entitled the North Island Villa, a secluded sanctuary in Seychelles that serves the world in the most extraordinary manner, one of the most amazing infinity pool resorts. But most importantly, it`s an oasis in which the natural habitat has been rehabilitated and where the endangered flora and fauna were reintroduced, this being a key aspect for the retreat and a raw model for the entire world.

Moreover in this natural habitat certain private lodges were built, villas spread across terraced multi-tiered levels ascending from the private beach and up to the granitic boulders, all taking advantage of expansive views towards the ocean. The whole design of the ensemble preserves the rural apparel of the zone seeking not to disturb the regional balance in any matter. In this superb design certain insertions have been introduced meant to elevate the level of luxury. Any contemporary amenities that one would desire are present of course.

From a culinary point of view there are no boundaries, a personal chef develops your own daily carte du jour based on your desires and needs entirely.

Everything is perfect. Everything will be emphasized by the sunset and dawn every day. What else can you ask for? We would love to hear your opinion in the comment section bellow, on Facebook, Twitter or G+!

Even though it may seem like an unnecessary luxurious addition, a swimming pool is in most cases an extremely good investment. It creates a heaven of relaxation at you finger tip, an escape from the outside world whilst increasing the value of your property consistently.

We`ve allocated a tremendous amount of time on Homesthetics with articles regarding swimming pools and today, this short collection will present you different scenarios that are able to enhance a swimming pool : a graphic tree, lush greenery, a lake or ocean view are obviously clear advantages.

Backyard Landscaping Inspiration Pack Swimming Pools 1 Small Backyard Landscaping Inspiration Pack Swimming Pools

Position the swimming pools only after studying the perspectives and be sure that you are getting the most out of your outdoor bed view and lounge area. Pay attention to the dimensions of the whole ensemble that you are going to shape, your backyard size and your climate should tell you what scale fits your needs and whether the swimming pool can be installed in the ground or not. If you don`t have the funds just yet, wait, we highly suggest you not to rush into the job with low quality materials or finishing, the effect of such a swimming pool will wear off in about two years and you will not like it anymore. To rebuild a swimming pool is not that easy.

You can accessorize the entire project with your own taste. Proper accessories : lounge chairs, outdoor beds and umbrellas may really enhance the backyard landscaping design. Feel free to be creative with a small waterfall or a diving board.

Consider that you will probably entertain people quite often with your new jewel so make sure you have sitting space for everyone.
