A large deck extends this new interior outside and gives the homeowners an opportunity to enjoy the country hillside and its many sights and sounds in an unhindered fashion. Décor inside the home is kept simple and unassuming with modern furniture finding space next to more rustic pieces.
The new residence embraces the overall design of the earlier house and you can see a certain to it despite a clear contemporary style. With a stoic steel structure and a roof crafted using Cross Laminated Timber panels this lovely house reinvents the past in its own special way!
Despite its seemingly refined exterior with clean lines and plenty of modernity the interior feels much more modern and bamboo plywood surfaces give it a cozy inviting appeal.
The two distinct blocks server two entirely different purposes with the east-west section containing the bedrooms and the guest rooms while the north-south block holds the open living area along with the kitchen and dining space.
This was done to meet the local building code even while giving the residence an identity of its own. Due to the harsh local weather conditions and cost constraints the house was completed in eight months and the interior feels both cozy and liberating with smart windows framing the scenic landscape outside.
A glass extension that gives an aging and classic structure newfound space and aesthetics is all too common in cities across the world; from Melbourne and London to Monaco and Mumbai. But this classic London home takes an entirely different route with a brick extension that effortlessly and aesthetically blends in with the heritage structure.
Inside the home minimalism takes over with brick walls and neutral hues holding sway. Glass and wooden partitions throughout the house help filter in sunlight and a new floor plan transform the once closed house into an inviting and cheerful 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.
