Having lived in a home with spatial limitations for over a decade and a half the owners of this mountainside residence in wanted a smarter more efficient and refreshing modern interior fit for their urban lifestyle.
A series of folding glass doors with dark frame delineate the interior from the outdoor hangout even while allowing light to flow through unhindered. The innovative roof does the rest as it brings the northern sunlight while giving the open plan living kitchen and dining a more spacious and breezy ambiance.
Even when the picket fence is not in the center of attention it’s hard to imagine the yard without it. The focal point is undoubtedly the house and the fence may be hidden among the tall flowers but just catching a glimpse of it can be felt upon the ambiance of the whole home!
It is the rear extension though that steals the show with its bright and beautiful demeanor that acts as a bridge between classic and contemporary styles. Frameless glazing oak and brick shape the new addition that now contains the kitchen and dining space.
It is the ground floor that contains the main bedrooms which stretch into the beautifully curated gardens and walkways outside. The natural pool and the massive man-made lagoon help cool the building further cutting back on its energy needs even while providing the perfect backdrop for evenings that range from the intimate and romantic to those with unending parties.
It is the ingenious convex curve of the roof along with the clerestory windows that instantly grab your attention as you enter the new rear extension that opens up towards the garden and the extended wooden deck.
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.
