Designed by Morrison Dilworth + Walls with modern panache the nifty Texas home offered challenges that went well beyond just the seamless connection between the interior and the world outside as an irregularly-shaped lot and a grand oak tree defined the final silhouette of the .
The lowest level contains a guest room along with a laundry room and a smart hall while the first floor holds the living room kitchen and dining space. The top two levels contain the master bedroom bathrooms and additional bedrooms and offer a great view of the city landscape and beyond.
It is barely a surprise then that a modern retreat set in its rural countryside is surrounded by an idyllic landscape that seems to not only define the silhouette of the residence but also its style and ambiance. Nestled in a remote nook of 25 miles southeast of the beautiful escape sits on top of a mountainous lot and offers a panoramic view of the distant river and mountains.
A beautiful painted brick wall in the living space and metallic finishes carefully intertwined with the very structure of the home give this rejuvenated dwelling its distinct rustic-modern vibe that is both relaxing and refreshing.
An accent stone wall in the bedroom and an outdoor shower add to the textural contrast and elegance of the beach house while accents in blue and yellow add a dash of color to an otherwise neutral interior. Combining comfort with simple aesthetics and flowing form this is a beach house that makes the most of the 100 square meters of space on offer even as it turns the landscape around it into the real showstopper.
The use of dark-toned wooden surfaces and finishes also adds to the tropical style of the home that is accentuated by the design of the ceiling and the lovely shutters. With summers getting really hot on this beautiful Aussie island the ‘completely open’ design allows for natural cooling with the ocean breeze flowing through the interior.
In fact rigid walls are kept to an absolute minimum here giving the dwelling a relaxing vibe. With the interior and the garden and pool deck outside flowing into one another almost seamlessly the greenery outside becomes an integral part of the living area indoors.
