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.
With white being the color of choice inside this Scandinavian-modern living space the light-filled setting seems even more cheerful and elegant. Smart contemporary décor is combined with timeless midcentury pieces like the Eames rocker to fashion a relaxed and breezy 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.
But the beautiful in takes a completely different approach as it embraces the architectural style of classic European Country estates in order to move away from the beaten path. Elegant and exquisite the luxurious residence is set on a vast that sits in a panoramic valley surrounded by majestic mountains. Designed by Poss Architecture the ‘intentionally formal’ form of the home aims to contrast the soothing landscape around it.
It is the lower level that houses the private spaces which are also blessed with loads of daylight thanks to the design of the stairwell. But it is undoubtedly the innovative rooftop garden that steals the show at this nifty London residence.
The simple structure of the home ensures that the entire family can enjoy an extended ‘family zone’ while soaking in the sunlight and relishing the multitude of sights and sounds outside. The marquee protects this glass edifice even while creating shaded walkways between the different wings of the home.
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.
