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.
The exterior of the house is clad in white and gray with the painted front door adding a dash of color and excitement to the visual with its blue beauty. Standing seam metal and stucco were used predominantly to craft the edifice and one can easily see their presence even from a distance.
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.
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!
Lighting fixtures like the 85 Lamps Chandelier enhance the underlying industrial flavor of the home while custom décor pieces in the bedrooms and guest spaces add to the sophisticated atmosphere indoors. Color is kept to a bare minimum and the backdrop is kept as neutral as possible with edgy elegance becoming the predominant theme.
Dubbed the the gorgeous house showcases a smart fusion of the old and the new as a classic pitched roof is reinvented to wrap around the exterior skin that extends all the way to the entrance.
Large glass doors and windows open up the living area on the lower level and master bedroom to the view outside even as the smart wooden deck and negative-edge pool extend the living space beyond the white walls.
