Building the tastes of a traditional Islamic family is a Pakistani home that’s historically influenced, but upgraded with contemporary spaces, lines and forms. The Islamabad home, designed in 2003 by architects at Montage DESIGNBUILD, the 2,100 square-foot home was built in a hip neighborhood with views of the Margalla Hills. The designer said he removed the home’s boundaries, blurring the line between public and private spaces. Glass bridges links volumes of the concrete home; one of which traverses a waterway that serves as a reflecting pool at night. [via archdaily]
