Here is a stunning example of recently completed residential architecture by the Greece based firm 314 Architecture Studio. The H3 is an enormous modern family home (10,764 sq feet) that sits on over 75,000 square feet of land.
The concrete and glass structure is built to give the illusion of hanging over three bodies of water and features parking, a squash court, gym, sauna, laundry room and 2 guest rooms on the bottom floor. Dining rooms (formal and informal), a kitchen and living areas grace the main floor, while the semi-cantlivered section that protrudes over one of the three pools has two more bedrooms, a kitchen and living area.
Details like giant window louvers, textured and angular concrete, built in bookshelves, mitered glass balcony railings, and a modern outdoor grill of concrete and glass along with tons of outdoor lighting inset into the overhangs makes every aspect of this home unique and inviting. There's one deep swimming pool and two shallow wading pools.
