Using two intersecting volumes the architects aimed to overcome the challenge of creating a stylish spacious and organic family home with a light-filled and airy interior. It is the lower levels of the two volumes that house the large living area and an additional family room along with a sleek modern kitchen in white and a lovely dining space.
The distinctive design of the residence came about by combining the homeowners’ desire for a multi-generational home that will serve them well for years to come with the vision of the architects that tapped into the 17-degree slope of the lot. It is the ground level that contains the sparkling glass-walled central kitchen dining and living space that flows into the green garden and pool area outside.
The bright and cozy modern interior relies largely on neutral hues warm wooden tones and a dash of concrete to create a unique and inviting ambiance. Timeless décor pieces like the Wishbone chair sit alongside more contemporary pieces even as warm lighting and a dashing two-story gallery atrium complete this sensible and stylish transformation.
It is the ground floor that contains the open living space with the kitchen and dining area sitting next to one another. A small patio and a light well next to the staircase bring in the much needed sunlight and give the interior a breezy relaxing appeal.
With the interior also adopting the European Country style it is easy to see why a family vacation here would seem much different from any other log cabin or mountain home in the region. Brilliant sconce lighting lovely lantern-style pendants and smart uplighting elevate the timeless traditional aura of this charming and lavish ranch residence.
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.
A glass wall separates the garage from the interior ensuring that it becomes a part of the home itself. It is the first floor that holds the reception area with the master suite occupying the top level. Three additional bedrooms and bathrooms on the third floor ensure there is plenty of space for friends and family.
