The Tred Avon River House in Easton, United States, was designed by the architect Robert M. Gurney. The locality, which is in the state of Maryland, is famous for its vast green areas and harbors numerous farms. With such wealth in the local flora, the house was designed to preserve the contact of its inhabitants with nature.
It is constructed with large concrete blocks attached by huge glass walls; inside the residence it is possible to have panoramic views of the river. In addition, the outdoor pool encourages direct contact with nature. A kind of balcony with built-in lighting surrounds the entire property, serving as a living space, and extends to the inner area of the house, allowing the good circulation of air.
Life in the countryside has never been so modern.
