Compact Residence Embedded in a Dreamy Landscape: The Ecomo Home

The beautiful and compact home comes from Pietro Russo – Ecomo and is located in Franschhoek, South Africa. The architecture took advantage of the mesmerizing landscape and created a home that communicates with its natural environment. Based on green, sustainable features, the home offers a secluded nature escape while in the same time obeying by the rules of contemporary design.  Its exterior is simply charming and the wooden finish makes it blend well in the scenery. “Eat”, “play” and “live” are the main units that form this home, each with its own well defined personality and functionality. The Ecomo home consists of three bedrooms and one large living-room (which includes a dining table and a lounge area). With views like that, large windows were inevitable. Besides, how else could its inhabitants feel the seasons changing in this magnificent location?- via Arch Daily

    it looks good, as all such houses look, but plan is not well-done i think, when doors are in corners it’s not comfortable, there’s enough space to create better architectural system than it actually is.

    It looks very ‘cold’ to me. Also, it seems to be in a rather desolate location. I LOVE small homes, but not this one, sadly.
