We received photos and information about a Salt Lake City modern home showcasing quite a few remarkable contemporary features. Inside and out, the residence inspires opulence and extravagant living. Here is an excerpt from the description provided by Cityhome Collective: “A veritable gallery of modernism, from the largest panoramic, residential windows installed in any Utah home, to the Italian Poliform, custom-built-in furniture throughout (in the successful spirit of tying each perfect space to the next).
The epitome of entertaining, it’s a dreamy plan, both inside and out, for hosts/hostesses. A private, automatic gate opens to a circular driveway and sitting area designed for valet guests. The views from within are overwhelming and incredible, and there’s an unbelievable 1,300 sq. ft. of outdoor deck space (swim spa included). Private, wooded backyard area, complete with babbling brook”. The three bedroom property is currently on sale for $2,700,000. Think its architecture, design and amenities rise up to its price tag?
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
