When it comes to rustic home design, most of people would think that it is only about old and traditional style. This concept is often associated with plain and simple design which reminds us to the life in the country side. Well, that assumption is not fully wrong though because that’s the original inspiration of the rustic concept itself. But sure, it doesn’t mean that you can’t modernize this old fashioned concept.
The thing about rustic style is its classic impression which brings back the memory of the life in the uptown. The use of stones and woods material is also adding the classic image to this home design concept. But if you think that it is already out of date, maybe you can check out this contemporary rustic home design from Valle de los Chillos, Ecuador which can be an inspiration. Designed by Diez + Muller Arquitectos, this house is combining the classic side of the rustic concept with the all new contemporary idea.
As you can see, this house is really an attraction among the beautiful landscape of the location. This 5,920 square foot is presenting not only the beauty of the design itself, but also the magnificent natural environment surrounding. Located on the hillside, the building structure is designed to be somehow looks like a single-floor building when in fact it consists of two-floor. That sounds amazing, right?
The use of exposed stone wall on the exterior creates rustic impression which also makes the house looks strong and tough. It is then combined with glass walls on the second floor which creates modern image to the house design; combining the two design concepts into one interesting final concept. The exposed metal beam on the interior is also a good idea to decorate the inside of the house. Those rustic home design inspirations are quite inspiring, right?
