Custom chairs and cool industrial lighting fixtures complete the impressive makeover. Most log cabins and mountain retreats borrow extensively from local architectural principles and design quirks to create a stylish relaxing and unique environment.
If there is one unmistakable trend in the world of home design it is structures that are enriched by the landscape that surrounds them even as they brush aside the conventional line between the interior and the world outside.
Working around both the historical and solar limitations of the site Nic Owen Architects revamped the interior of the home completely by altering its floor plan and also added a modern rear extension.
While it is stone that shapes the home on the outside the interior presents a more curated look with traditional elements meeting modern ergonomics. Exposed timber surfaces in the family room and bedrooms usher in inviting warmth while neutral hues coupled with bright accents shape the living area.
Bedrooms and the master suite are tucked away in the lower level along with additional bathrooms and a deck. Opening up towards the natural garden this special design of the two levels ensures those inside always stay connected with the landscape.
