About 211 House with a Large Porch

A Visionary Blend with Nature

Our clients yearned for a home that harmoniously blends with the neighboring park’s serenity. MIDE Architects answered this call, crafting a single-story residence radiating elegance and simplicity.

The Living Oasis

Facing south, the expansive living room serves as a reflective glass box, brilliantly capturing the park’s essence. Furthermore, an overarching porch lends protection, emphasizing the room’s mirroring effect.

Intimate Sleeping Quarters

The bedroom realm offers introspection. Concrete walls, boasting geometric cut-outs, peer onto the verdant garden.

Unified Shelter Design

A vast flat roof seamlessly ties the house’s rooms together. This feature not only shields from the sun but also guards against unpredictable weather.

The Porch: Nature’s Embrace

The porch stands out, adorned with luminous wells that cradle trees. This design deepens the connection between the dwelling and the embracing park.

Material Mastery

The project’s essence shines through a restrained material palette: glass, wood, and a distinctive reddish concrete. Remarkably, local stone infuses this concrete, offering a personalized touch.
