Luxury Summer House
Luxury Summer House Design
The holiday home or summer-house by definition, is a building constructed with a strictly defined personality. A temporary euphoria squeezed between four walls for a period of the users choosing. It is a social engineer’s architectural dream. A newly emerging middle class sought escapism from the polluted cities while still enjoying the comforts of their newly industrialized homes.
A Modernist belief that experience was shaped through design spearheaded the mass-production of seasonal dwelling. Le Corbusier described buildings as “machines for living” and architecture was bent to supply the petit bourgeoisie’s need for leisure and relaxation. Buildings were simplified, historical references and ornament were removed in favor of promoting the beauty of modern materials and construction. Concrete and its featureless character became the material of choice in the construction of buildings throughout Europe and North America. Their homogenous appearance celebrated by Brutalist architects but condemned by post-modernists for their flagrant disregard towards the social, historic, and architectural environment of its surroundings.
