Designing a stylish contemporary home as an infill structure that sits behind an existing house is hard enough as it is. But in the case of Refresh* Architecture also had to face the added challenge of working with a site that had as much as 6 meters of inclination.
Designed by Basiches Arquitetos it is the stunning contemporary pavilion that is the true showstopper here as it acts as a lovely transitional zone between the home that already sits on the lot and a fabulous backyard complete with an infinity pool and ample greenery.
A perforated timber screen completely alters the dynamics of the home and allows the homeowners to turn the small backyard into a cozy little retreat right at home. The interior is largely clad in timber and concrete – a blend that brings together inviting warmth and modern minimalism in a seamless fashion.
The ground floor surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass walls and sliding glass doors houses the open plan living area kitchen dining room and a lovely home library while the top timber-wrapped structure contains three bedrooms bathrooms and a smart sitting area.
Unlike many other bachelor hubs that rely on the excessive use of dark hues leather and minimalism this contemporary home takes a completely different approach while delivering a stylish refined and functional living space. Crafted by Antonio Martins Interior Design along with Zack/De Vito Architecture this San Francisco home has an industrial flavor that can’t be denied.
The interior of the spacious home has a light and cheerful ambiance with pops of color added to the living space using the vivacious yellow Togo Sofa. Color is otherwise kept to a minimum with white and gray dominating the backdrop in every room.
But the in Victoria designed by Schulberg Demkiw Architects finds that lovely balance between both elements perfectly as light wells and small garden features are used cleverly to usher in ample light even as a perforated timber screen keeps away prying eyes.
