Designing an urban home that moves away from the mundane and finds that ideal balance between modernity and proximity to nature is a hard task at the best of times. It definitely is far easier to accomplish in homes surrounded by a lush green landscape as the view outside provides the necessary green goodness.
It is a contemporary home that is defined largely by the irregular lot that it sits in and the existing greenery that the homeowners and Tzannes Associates wished to preserve to the best possible extent. The result is a fascinating and exceptional home where the outdoors become a vital part of the interior!
Essentially this is a fusion of contrasting styles eras and architectural principles done in a flowing and seamless fashion. While the exterior of the original home is largely left untouched it is the interior that undergoes a complete makeover.
Specially crafted green zones with glass walls enliven various rooms of this wonderful and soothing house allowing the homeowners to escape the rush of a fast-paced urban lifestyle. And it is barely a surprise that life here is more about the outdoors than the luxurious interior!
The connection with water at the seems all too natural with the backyard of this luxurious home opening up towards a lovely canal adding to the brilliant natural landscape that overwhelms you with its beauty.
