Sneak Peek: The Dwell NextHouse: Silicon Valley

Sneak Peek: The Dwell NextHouse: Silicon Valley

Mar 28, 2008

You wanted more photos of the The Dwell NextHouse: Silicon Valley? You've got 'em. Jump below for a few pics of what we saw yesterday at the Dwell prefab home in Mountain View.

Three years in the making (although the actual building only took about six months), the house is full of light and space. It's comfortable, clean, and modern. There are windows everywhere, and with the 21-foot retractable wall of glass leading from the living room and dining room to the courtyard deck, it's hard to tell where indoors ends and outdoors begins.

The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home's just about as sustainable as you can get on a budget.

We love the cork floors in the kids' bathroom and laundry room.

And Kohler's Hatbox Toilet in the tiny powder room.

And the mix of high and low. The kitchen includes IKEA kitchen cabinets, CaesarStone countertops, and Ann Sacks tiles. What appear to be built-in bookcases are actually IKEA EXPEDIT set into a niche.

Staged with furniture and accessories provided by Branch, CITIZEN:Citizen, Design Public, Semigood, Staach, and Zinc Details, the house is comfortable, clean, and modern.

We're pretty sure that Mark and Ellen and their kids are going to be very happy when they move in after all the commotion is over. And they're going to throw some great parties in this house.
