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.
Designed to meet the growing needs of a family with 2 children the extended and altered house now features 4 bedrooms 2 bathrooms a gorgeous study and of course an open plan living area on the lower level.
Replacing the traditional view of the landscape outside the lowered rooftop garden becomes an integral part of the open plan living space on the second level of the house. This also allows the homeowners to keep an eye on the little ones as they spend time on the rooftop terrace even while letting in a healthy dose of natural light.
Designed by DADA & Partners it is the lower level of the expansive house that contains the family room living area dining space kitchen and other formal space while the top floor contains additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
As is the case with most contemporary homes these days the living areas on the lower level and the bedrooms on top floor open up toward a large deck complete with a pool and an outdoor dining space. Glossy finishes in the kitchen and bathroom a plush Togo Sofa in the living room and a curated splash of color in the dining room complete a refined and relaxing residence.
