Shelves cabinets and décor custom crafted using bamboo plywood boards give the interior a further sense of uniqueness while different platforms around the house and elevated deck offer plenty of space for homeowners to spend outdoors. A burnished bronze fireplace in the living area also serves the dining space even as contemporary décor gives it an understated profile.
A neutral color scheme and passive solar-heating fashion a pleasant and charming living area with the bedrooms neatly tucked away in the rear. Smart eco-sensitive and serene this cozily lit family residence has it all!
Nestled on a small site that has been specifically cleared for the residence the house has been clad in wood on the outside to ensure it blends in with the landscape. Insulated glass windows frame the views outside while keeping out the chill even as passive solar heating brings warmth indoors.
The transition between the interior and the exterior further facilitates this nature-centric lifestyle with a shaded porch that the homeowners can enjoy both at dawn and dusk. With a pergola structure that consists of mobile slats ventilation on the porch can be controlled easily.
The form of the new addition with its gabled roof and overall dimension matches that of the original home and its three different blocks. Spotted gum decking boards that are stained in black are used to cover the exterior while lighter silver oak boards take over on the inside.
Nestled on a lot that makes the most of the gorgeous valley views on offer and the snow-capped mountains in the distance this Swiss home feels both contemporary and classic at the same time. It is the panoramic view outside that brings in the timeless appeal even as the house itself has a more modern inviting vibe.
Designed by Field Architecture a metal and wood frame anchors the home with glass walls and sliding glass doors connecting the interior with the woods outside. Concrete walls and the entrance and in the kitchen offer more textural contrast while different wildlife species passing through the lot are left undisturbed even as the homeowners enjoy life inside its peaceful confines.
