Built in pastoral landscapes, nestled among traditional dwellings, or renovated from old agricultural buildings, modern rustic homes have a distinctive charm. They bridge the gap between different eras while celebrating two different aesthetics with a perfectly balanced design. Since their appearance is usually anchored in their setting, these houses celebrate tradition and the local context in various ways. The one constant? A blend of rustic and contemporary influences. Under the guidance of talented architects and designers, these dwellings pay homage to the past via contemporary design.
Modern rustic homes make picturesque landscapes their home. At the edge of small village in a mountainous landscape. A clearing in a woodland. On the banks of a mirror-like lake. Close to popular ski resorts, but far away from the busy areas filled with tourists. They are the perfect shelter away from urban environments, blending rural, simple living with cutting-edge design. Translated in a more refined language, the vernacular elements give the buildings their character while they also complement any modern details.
Although they have many features in common, the designs of these modern rustic homes vary greatly in style. Some reproduce the stereotypical house shape, but in a contemporary concrete volume. Others pair natural stone and solid wood with black metal and sleek glass surfaces. And some houses combine original sections with newly built ones, merging old and new in striking designs. All of these buildings are meant to be comfortable, welcoming homes. At the same time, their design also fills new, exciting pages in the latest chapter of contemporary architecture.
