A wood cabin nestled between fir trees and a riverview home. What else can you ask for? Envisioned by Studio Dwell Architects this extraordinary Riverview Home is located in Wayne, Illinois. The privileged site allows extensive panoramic views of the sloping terrain down to Fox River from different perspective points throughout the home. The home has been designed from the very beginning to take as much from the exterior as possible whilst remaining cozy and warm for the inhabitants. Simple, elegant and bold at the same time, the river home spreads over 4,000 square feet, offering all the comfort that one would require.
The huge glass windows are capturing green sceneries and panoramas all around. To enhance these perspective views and enjoy the snapshots as much as possible the rooms of the home were inverted, the upper lever being used for day-to-day living, clearing your eyes throughout the day with extraordinary panoramas.
“The upper level has an expansive cantilevered terrace and roof suspended over the lower level providing sun protection from the south and west exposures, helping to cool the house in the summer while providing wind protection in the winter.”
Thanks to the lower level nestled in the sloping site, the riverview home shelters comfort and privacy whilst maintaining a seamless connection to the surroundings.
