This unusual house was designed by Arturo Montanelli for himself and his family. The house is located on a sloping site, which has an excellent view of Lake Como - the most beautiful lake in Italy. The architect had been working on the project for two years. He wanted to create an ideal home, which would embody the spirit of this amazingly beautiful place and the harmony with nature. The house design was inspired by the traditional local buildings and old stone towers. During the construction were used such materials as local stone, marble, and wood. The house is located above the other buildings in this area, so that from its windows offer breathtaking views. Stone house looks like a splendid castle with pool.

The use of natural materials and beautiful nature that surrounds the house - these are the components which allow it to look as spectacular. The amazing structure combines stone, wood and glass. This project was designed by Prentiss Architects and was called North Bay Residence. By the way, another project with similar name North Bay Road Residence was presented in the blog earlier, but they are quite opposite houses. The house is located on San Juan Island in the U.S. near the coast. The plot has a slight slope, which makes the structure of the houses more attractive, and provides more exciting views. Decorated in classic and contemporary style simultaneously, the residence is designed to please everyone.
