Beautiful Modern Guest Houses

By • May 17, 2018

If you frequently have guests over your home for an extended period of time, then you know how useful it can be to have your guests stay in a cozy place that allows them to feel just like home. Having a guest bedroom is always a great idea. However, having a guest house that is an extension of your home is even better. It allows your guests to have their very own personal space while still remaining part of yours. Here are a few modern guest houses that are one of a kind.

Kearsarge Guest House by Kurt Krueger Architects

The unique aspect of this Kearsarge Guest House is that it is a stand-alone home. What this means is there isn’t a main home attached to it. Due to, this the guest house on the property of the 1968 M.G. Residence which makes it part of the home without being fully attached to the home. Think of this guest house as the smaller version of the main house with a water feature on the outdoors and all. There is even a small space in the front that doubles as a porch. The guest house has everything the home does, but on a smaller scale.

Elegant Guesthouse Designed by Architectural Firm Janson Goldstein

 

A modern yet elegant guest bedroom was the initial thought when creating this home. This guest home is an addition to the contemporary home that includes not only the guest house, but a swimming pool adjacent as well. Furthermore, the exterior of the home does not stay behind on the modern concept as the exterior consists of glass walls and black metal. The guest house is divided in two sides, one side is a gym for the homeowners and the other is a living room and bedroom for the guests.

Villa Z Guest Home in Moscow, Russia

Villa Z is a beauty in its own special way. Not only is Villa Z sitting right next to the main home, but it is also a very unique shape. These contemporary homes were built to resemble each other not only on the outdoor structure, but on the inside structure as well. They are so close in resemblance that they are almost identical.

Mountain Guest House by Dom Arquitectura

Mountain guest house is one of a kind. It is the perfect guest home for those that want a relaxing addition to their residence. Designed to have a cabin feel this guest house features wood from top to bottom including the furniture. The deck roof to this guest bedroom is the best feature as it is made out of wicker however it is waterproof and isolated. Due to, this you have the roof of the home protecting it in a modern manner while still have the wicker extension that covers the deck.

Atelier and Guest House by C.F. Møller Architects

When you think of a guest house a home like this one is exactly what you think of. The Atelier and Guest House by C.F. Møller Architects offers a main house with an updated extension of a guest house directly connected to the home. The idea is to have your guests feel as part of your home instead of being in a separate wing. Furthermore, the updated guest wing is modern with views of the coast.

Casey Key Guest House by TOTeMS Architecture

The Casey Key Guest house is the epitome of contemporary guest home. This guest house was created on the concept of “house in the trees”. Furthermore, the idea was to create the perfect quiet space that looks like a tree house, but feels like home in the most modern way. Due to, this the home was built within a mature hammock. The interior and exterior of the home are constructed of Oak in order to provide that classic calming effect that the homeowners were seeking.

Shipping Container Guest House by Jim Poteet

Shipping container homes have become quite popular not only because of their size, but because of their convenience. Therefore, having a shipping container guest house like this one just makes sense. At 320 square feet, this shipping container sits in the backyard of the homeowner. The container home is equipped with a heating and air conditioning system along with plants on the roof that help regular the temperature of the home regardless of how it is outdoors.

Ocean Guest House by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

This ocean guest house was designed in a contemporary manner with a unique purpose behind it. Furthermore, the shape of this home was constructed to help the home breathe while still protecting it from the natural elements. The house itself is a two-story structure that has unique views on every wing. Its west wing is the most impressive as it offers views of the garden, pool and the ocean.

House by the Pond by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Designed by Bridgehampton-based studio Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects in Water Mill, New York this guest house offers all of the beauty a home would. The house by the pond was constructed with natural elements such as anodized aluminum, cedar, and cement. These specific elements were selected because of their low maintenance, great cost value, durability, and longevity. Just like the outside of the home was constructed in a very specific manner the inside was as well. It offers an open layout with a pavilion feel separated by space that is broken down with large glass doors. Not only that, but the street front pavilion showcases the pool area and the wildlife of the pond.

Guest House Rivendell by IDMM Architects

The structural design of this guest house Rivendell by IDMM Architects is a work of art in itself. Measuring at 7,760 square feet and located in North, Korea this guest house is a must see. The entire guest house is spread out with different areas that appear like limbs. Unlike a traditional home, this building offers an upper and lower space that is divided by long rows of windows. The windows allow for the amazing view to be seen throughout every single floor and space of the home. This was done because nature was a huge concept when it came to the structure of the home.

To conclude, owning your own home is great, but having a space where your guests can feel just as welcomed is even better. Which of these guest homes is your personal favorite?
