How would you love to escape to a mesmerizing holiday home nestled on the rocky coastline of a small island in Norway? It does sound like an exciting proposition filled with amazing views and loads of tranquility! Promising precisely that and a whole lot more is by Lund Hagem which was designed for a young family who wanted to transform their more modest holiday home into something far more exciting and expansive.
Love homes that seem like a natural extension of the scenic landscape despite the contemporary architectural features and modern comfort they offer? If you do then the dashing designed by Studio Arthur Casas will surely enthrall and inspire you with its unique design that completely hides the large house from those on the street even while offering unabated views of its scenic surroundings. This was achieved by combining architectural ingenuity with the natural slope of the terrain that lets the rear of this flow into the lush green golf course that engulfs it.
It is the landscape the views on offer and the neighborhood that often define the silhouette of the house and the balance between privacy and ‘openness’ when it comes to design. Nestled in Kibbutz Yehiam Israel tends to veer more towards the latter with its unique design that blurs the conventional boundaries between the interior and the world outside.
We all have had that moment in our lives when we feel that all we need is just ‘one more room’ to truly complete our home. And then we move on to a bigger house and the feeling remains despite all that newfound space!
Once you step inside this elegant home the image of the dark stained cedar exterior is quickly replaced by a breezy living space clad in neutral hues and an open living area that is filled with ample natural light.
The new open plan living area flows into the cool dining space that overlooks the deck outside with the small kitchen in white sitting next to it. A drawing room sits between the living room and the kitchen and acts as a connecting and transitional zone. Two relaxing bedrooms and a bathroom on the top level complete the exquisite makeover that finds a balance between modernity and classic elegance!
Green design is definitely ‘in’ and has been so for a while now. Offering benefits that go beyond just eco-friendly perks smart energy-efficient home design can cut back on your power bills and create a more harmonious interior.
