Postcard House by Hufft Projects is a living proof that inspiration can be drawn from pretty much anything in the world. Creators of this beautiful residence located near Table Rock Lake, Missouri, took the idea from a vintage Polaroid camera.
The house is a simple, yet brilliant concept. If you remember the pre-digital era of photography, without a shadow of doubt you'll notice a similarity between the Postcard House and the iconic printouts from a Polaroid camera. The building has a light and thin structure, which looks very much like a frame for the scenic setting. Because it was painted white, the frame is very distinctive and creates an impression of contrast to the view within.
As far as the view is concerned, the Postcard House has a lot to offer. It features a number of large windows and terraces that allow the residents to admire the gorgeous vista over the nearby lake. Combined with wood-based construction of the envelope, windows allow the natural light and air flow freely throughout the interiors.
Decorators decided to follow the intention of the architects and used the same materials for interior design. Both inside and outside, one can see prefinished metal panels and stained cedar in mixture with sleek white surfaces. Furniture is modern, elegant and functional and is a welcome addition to the otherwise slightly industrial character of the interior.
The Postcard House was built for two brothers as a weekend retreat. Given its perfect location and unordinary design, it certainly fulfills this purpose.
