“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.”
The fundamentals of modern architecture are clean and simple. Its ever-present philosophy abides to the ideal that form follows function. Therefore, modern architects express themselves through simplicity, clear views of structural elements and by eschewing unnecessary design details.
To keep it simple, modern architecture focuses more on industrial metals such as steel, concrete and glass (innovative industrial developments of the time). While contemporary design may use these same elements, its designs are considered new, re-thought, or forward-thinking. Clear as mud? With all that being said, the two designs will always mix and mingle with one another—even in the images in this article.
Inside, knotty cedar slats surround the linked kitchen and dining room, wrapping up the side walls and the ceiling above to create a sense of warmth and grandeur. The linked first-floor kitchen and dining room are double-height spaces, which produce a dramatic effect when entering the house.
