Wood steel concrete and glass shape both the exterior and the interior of the house with the bay windows making a big difference to its overall form. With concrete and custom wooden shelves also making a big impact in the kitchen there is plenty of contrast to be found all around – both in terms of style and texture!
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.
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.
Many of the existing doors and windows were retained and revamped to improve the ventilation of the house with the top level now housing a comfy master suite that paints a picture or serenity and style. Combining the residence’s existing classical flair with a distinct modern style and a sophisticated mood this lovely North London home definitely acquired a new lease on life after its latest upgrade!
Nothing transforms an interior completely like the right lighting. It could be a flood of natural light on some occasions and a carefully planned and executed combination of recessed and pendant lighting on others.
A sculptural steel staircase leads to the top floor where one finds the master suite and an equally spacious deck that offers unabated views of the scenic landscape outside. Sliding glass doors a neutral color scheme and unassuming interiors ensure that the sights and sounds outside end up stealing the spotlight at this ingenious contemporary home.
Décor is kept simple and unassuming and the high gabled roof creates a sense of spaciousness and contemporary grandeur. With an open double height circulation area that connects the living spaces on the lower level and the more private rooms on the top floor there is an unabated flow of light throughout the house.
