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.
A Neutral backdrop is a feature that is all too common in modern homes and the in Texas is no different as its walls are clad in simple white. But that does not mean this is devoid of uniqueness or personality as it is carefully curated furniture custom décor pieces and of course nifty accessories that give it an aura of its own.
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.
Viewed from the street the novel extension is almost invisible and it only becomes a part of the home’s visual once you step in. This was an essential component of the overall design as it kept the historic appeal of the house unaltered while the extension with glass walls and large floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors brought in ample natural ventilation.
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.
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.
