The concrete lower structure offers a perfect stable base for the four-bedroom residence with the cor-ten walls and roof of the top level bringing in the wow factor. On the inside the image changes dramatically with neutral hues and the warmth of wood offering a relaxing contemporary retreat.
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!
Promising a lifestyle that takes you back into the lap of nature even while delivering modern comfort and aesthetics the designed by ARCHITECTUREFIRM combines two contrasting worlds in a relaxing and ravishing fashion.
With a smart indoor-outdoor interplay as the major factor in defining the house and its silhouette one sees the raised terrace become a part of the living space indoors. The connection between the outdoors and the living space goes beyond being merely visual as the transition between both spaces is simply seamless.
The arrangement of the three individual units is inspired by rocks around a campfire and the simplicity of their design and striking dark exterior make them even more appealing. The black cladding also lets the home blend into the forest and melt away after sunset while it stands out as a gorgeous contemporary addition during the day. Large glass doors and windows connect the interior with the landscape even as the living area bedrooms and kids’ bunk beds exude an air of serenity and unassuming charm.
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.
Despite its ultra-modern appeal there is no lack of contrast both in terms of geometry and texture inside the home with stylish wooden panels in the dining room and the home office bringing the walls and the ceiling alive.
