It is the top floor that holds the master suite and additional bedrooms. Each level flows into the next in terms of both style and ambiance as the wooden staircase and series of light wells create a sense of continuity. Bright color is kept to an absolute minimum inside the house with wall art and lighting fixtures adding hints of liveliness and energy.
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.
A stone fireplace becomes the focal point of the living zone while it is natural timber sourced locally that dominates the bedroom scenery. Each room flows into the next seamlessly and the lovely rustic flair is maintained by keeping things simple and true to the local architectural principles. A splendid mountain home that is an absolute showstopper!
Much of the interior opens up towards the triangular pool and lush green garden landscape while contemporary décor and a neutral color scheme with a beachy twist keep the indoors fresh and cheerful.
But the rustic structure and its cozy interiors match the splendor outside and transport you into a world that is far away from the constant rush and concrete glitter of more mundane city life.
International style and architecture are all about bringing together the best of different cultures traditions and regional flavors where one combines with the other seamlessly.
But the fabulous in crafted by Mark+Vivi showcases the true meaning of the word ‘sustainable’ as it turns a 1920s tire shop into a modern live/work studio that also serves as an exhibition gallery for creative local contemporary art and architecture!
