Rhine Valley Home

This k_m architektur home is a modern, golden vision surrounded by mountains and valleys. Made up of right angles, the house is sharply contemporary in silhouette. Clad, in copper, glass, and wood, the exterior glows and will age naturally over time. The warm color of the facade makes the cool blue swimming pool a point of contrast and focus. The long, narrow pool is accessible via the deck and fully visible from the floor-to-ceiling glass walls on the ground level. Inside, the home reveals additional features such as a fireplace and columns finished in black. The structure welcomes people to move freely inside and outside, so that they may enjoy the artful and naturalist elements of the architecture and scenery.
