Preferring the simplicity of country living, the family living here wanted a modern villa that opens to the outside both in the front and the back. Panoramic windows assemble green views as the volume floats above the undulating landscape. A seamless connection is thus formed between the outdoors and the carefully designed indoors, defining what elegance in design means.
A misconception that critics often have of modern architecture is that it’s cool and cold. However, the opposite could be argued. A large number of modern designs feature elements that are naturally warm and inviting, such as wood and stone.
“The main house was renovated using traditional construction methods, thus preserving its character and ambiance. It accommodates the social and functional areas of the house: the entryway, the kitchen, small living and dining rooms, and two bedrooms.”
Exterior of the house is coated in glass, allowing light and fresh air inside. “Shutters clad with sawn timber battens adds a balance of texture to the rendered and glass façades. Black stone floors used throughout living spaces with carbonised oak flooring and timber detail to compliment the stone. Simple and elegant bathrooms that combine matt white with additional use of the black stone.” The striking simple design as well as the serenity encompassing the house played a key elements in completing this wonderful, uncluttered home.
