Adding to the intrigue and the visual splendor of this modern home is the Brise soleil that keeps away hot tropical sun and creates beautiful walkways that are still lit ever so beautifully by natural light.
Set in an idyllic landscape filled with majestic mountains and a lush green landscape that comes alive each summer in Merishausen brings modernity to a relaxing rural setting. Designed by Dost this contemporary residence in gray sits on a sloped lot (not a surprise) and overlooks the village below.
Despite its contemporary aesthetics the colorful zest inside the house definitely gives it an eclectic-modern vibe even as ARKITITO Arquitetura did their absolute best to cut back on construction costs and wastage of space. Even with a concrete and steel structure and an interior covered in cement blocks there is plenty of vivacious brilliance everywhere you look!
It is the lower level that holds the stylish entry open living area and a small kitchen along with other utility rooms. The top floor contains the master bedroom a spacious walk-in closet two kids’ bedrooms and a nifty sitting area. A gorgeous and minimal floating staircase connects the lower level with the upper floor.
One can see the rear balcony and the panoramic view beyond even from the entry as an open common space creates the heart of the home. Surrounded by large redwood trees and a relaxing garden the focus here remains firmly on the landscape outside!
White is the color of choice inside and that barely comes as a surprise in a region where Scandinavian style and aesthetics hold sway. Gentle pastel hues shelving that extends all the way up to the ceiling and space-savvy hidden cabinets complete this relaxing and charming Hanko home.
While green roof and the spacious rear year allow the homeowners to enjoy quality gardening time the inherent minimalism of the interior presents a polished contemporary look. Combining nature with modernity the design aims to bring together the best of both worlds; with a hint of sustainability!
