Completed in August 2013, The Green Lantern House is a lovely contemporary family house that located in the one of the oldest and most famous neighbourhood in San Antonio, Texas, USA. This superb modern style home design was developed by John Grable Architects in order to give the owner a great living space with high respect to the environment. The designer use glass to substitute some part of the wall in the front part so the light can easily enter the house and therefore this house can save some energy for daylight electricity. The use of glass is also able to give the person inside the house to have such a wide visual access to the surrounding neighbourhood.
The contemporary family house plans that apply in are all about blending with the nature. That is the reason why there so many open spaces that available in this house. Take for example the big door that connected the main area with the swimming pool. The swimming pool is located in the back of the house it is such a lovely modern style swimming pool design with its wooden deck. It seems that the swimming pool consider as the best area of the house so the designer tries to exploit its beautiful spot to blend with the interior design.
The interior design of this perfect modern style home design, moreover, is also the crucial parts that make this house consider as one of the best in the neighbourhood. Take a look at the nice and wide living room design. It is a highly modern living room that supported with lovely modern style living room furniture design, but most importantly, this living room is directly connected to the swimming pool area, which is airy and beautiful.
The design of this gorgeous modern style home design shows that there is a big possibility for modern architectural design to be able to blend with the nature. The contemporary single family house in San Antonio reveals other possibility in modern housing creation.
