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.
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!
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.
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.
The living area and kitchen open up into the rear patio and enjoy the benefits of a breezy indoor-outdoor interplay. With smart ambient lighting being coupled with gorgeous Coral pendant lights there is never a dull moment here.
The idea of creating a home that borrows from the charm elegance and distinct style of apartments in New York City is something of a perennial favorite among homeowners across the globe. While some might prefer the artistic and exquisite SoHo style others go down the route of the chic Manhattan Loft look.
Even though it is hard to look beyond the intricately and expertly designed series of water features the home itself presents a spacious open living area on the lower level with the private quarters nestled on the top floor.
