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.
A tranquil retreat set against an idyllic backdrop that brings you close to nature and its ever-changing sights and sounds; this is definitely the image of a beautiful family retreat that most of us dream about.
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 .
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 major focus inside was on lighting and ventilation with a series of skylights and the stairwell bringing sunlight from the top level into the lower floor. Large open and sweeping spaces are clad in white to accentuate the positives while the existing wooden trusses are combined with a modern ceiling to bring in the best of both worlds.
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.
Apart from the custom-crafted furniture and design solutions it is the smart usage of sliding glass walls that ensures each individual room inside the home feels both unique and connected with the rest of the house. Exquisite exclusive and filled with green goodness at every turn this is a refreshing Brazilian home that puts a smile on your face.
