Eco friendly exterior design ideas
The debut of GDC in the field of architecture is the project “2611” which was completed in 2013. This is a structure of three separate parts and features a green house, planter beds, a fire pit and a storage shed. The constructions are situated near a residential area in Bozeman and neighbours a zone with protected wildlife. A multi-functional wooden bench is adjacent to the area which allows occupants to gather around the fireplace for communication and basically represents the stages of harvesting and gathering of the crops. Due to the tight budget the design paid attention to the technical aspects and the fabrication. In compliance with the nature friendly exterior design ideas, the use of reclaimed materials enhances the idea of the eco-project.
Contemporary exterior design ideas – close to nature
The different structures of 2611 project create a composition which combines concrete, steel and wood. The wooden slats were provided from a wolf shelter and all the steel elements are fabricated in the local area. Corrugated plastic panels allow a lot of natural light which is essential for plants. One of the most interesting features is the sliding timber door which opens to a piano which is fitted inside the small shed. The fireplace is constructed with a concrete retaining wall around the area with an attached wooden bench. 2611 unites the best of exterior design ideas to provide a place for planting, communicating and living close to Nature.
