Designed by Guild Architects for a relaxed family life it is the green landscape around the house and its gorgeous garden that become the key components of the residence. Built to encourage interaction between family members an outdoor lifestyle and harmony with nature this is a home that moves away from the urban trend of sterile interiors.
This was accomplished by keeping the structure of the home simple and minimal. It is the wooden ceiling and the concrete floor that act as two simple planes that define the residence with the glass walls creating flexible boundaries between the interior and the garden outside. The interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces is seamless and one feels as if surrounded by the lovely garden while sitting in the living area or the family room.
It is the lower level that contains the new kitchen and dining space that are flooded with natural light thanks to the smart use of skylights and light tubes. The space under the staircase is also utilized to the hilt with a series of closed cabinets and a wine storage and display area that is both simple and elegant.
Features such as the stone walls in the kitchen and the bathroom and the striking ‘sabina beams’ have been carefully preserved while the newly added gorgeous window frames along with the concrete and white chalk-plastered stone walls aim to recreate the magic of the past. It is this fusion that gives the modest retreat its exceptional character and transports you back in time to a simpler period.
Draped in wood and stone the street façade of the house offers complete privacy even as the beautifully-lit ponds create an inviting and enchanting setting in the garden. The open plan living area with kitchen and dining plays second fiddle to the view outside as one is drawn in by the magnetism and ingenuity of this urban cabin!
Glazed corner windows influence both the visual appeal of the exterior and the functionality indoors by allowing the homeowners to easily utilize even the tiniest of corner nooks while dark cedar ushers in textural contrast.
