This meant that the upper floor was incorporated into the hillside and the gradient of the lot turned into an advantage by simply using a step-wise arrangement of various levels. Despite these restrictions a lovely roof deck incorporated within a flat planted roof allows the homeowners to take in the sights and sounds of the serene island!
The fabulous use of timber in different rooms of the house is one of the many ingenious features of this Austin home that one would normally not come across in most other prefabs.
The color scheme inside the house is kept largely neutral with white being the hue of choice and black window frames defining and anchoring individual spaces ever so effectively. Dark wooden floors and a brick wall just outside add to the textural beauty of the Armadale House 1 accomplishing a simple effective and functional transformation.
Uncomplicated in its design and responding to the unique demands of the countryside in which it sits Casa Chontay manages to combine serenity and comfort with traditional construction techniques.
Despite the more traditional backdrop one is never far away from modern ergonomics and comfort here. Artwork and sculptural pieces that reflect Vietnamese culture and heritage complete this masterful vertical house.
But what really draws your attention at this modern-rustic home is the wonderful use of old brick warm wooden surfaces and smart bespoke lighting to create a refined and cozy fusion of contrasting styles.
Crafted by WernerField & Joshua Rice Design the living room here is filled with plenty of natural light as sliding glass doors connect the interior with the view outside. It is white drapes that add another layer of functionality to the large glass doors as they combine privacy with unabated views and even aid in filtering the sunlight on hot summer days.
