While the top level of the house seems to float in air ever so elegantly the basement of the cottage is firmly anchored in the Canadian Shield giving it plenty of stability that is key to the expansive upper level design.
With a simple white backdrop the living room offers a perfect canvas to bring in essentially different materials and textures like the snazzy Moroccan rug (which is still pretty modern) a stone coffee table and the minimal modern fireplace.
A trend in home renovation that refuses to fade away smart extensions like these not only save time and precious resources but also give homeowners newfound ergonomic flexibility.
The idea here was to not just fashion a home that connects with the panoramic scenery but also to incorporate design flexibility and adaptability that lets it grow along with the needs of the homeowners.
The latest additions to the home include new bedrooms for kids and additional guest rooms on the lower level along with the reworked living area kitchen and dining space. The use of large floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensure that the interior is always connected with the fabulous landscape outside even as the new green roof and second level with master suite up the style quotient of this California residence.
Space is definitely not an issue here with the two large volumes being connected by a narrow bridge on the top level even as the lower level is left as open as possible. The gorgeous pool area wooden deck and backyard become a visual part of the interior even as the private zones are housed on the top floor. An engaging roof terrace and modern lighting complete a cheerful residence that reinterprets the classic MiMo style in a grand manner.
The exterior of this cool cottage also paints a picture of textural beauty as white cedar is combined with a dash of raw exposed steel to shape a façade that would age beautifully as it wears on.
