Prefabricated homes make life a lot easier for those looking to keep construction costs down even while ensuring that much of the work is done offsite. But another advantage of prefab homes is the speed that they bring to the development of a new residence; something that simply cannot be matched by on-site designs.
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.
Gorgeously crafted garden stretches add to an already energetic living room that is filled with a bright blue couch orange and green chairs and a large sofa that provides ample sitting space. Even the open glass shelves in different colors accentuate this appeal of playful contemporary panache that is carried through into the dining space and the kitchen.
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.
Décor from the likes of Design Within Reach dominates the setting even as large glass walls open it up towards the garden outside. Large globe pendants with hexagonal panels in the kitchen and patterned drapes in the dining room further bring plenty of visual contrast even as shades of blue inspired by the surf are carefully integrated throughout the living area.
Essentially the delightful residence brings together a series of courtyards and open spaces bound by glass and stone walls to create a relaxing imaginative and exclusive interior. Apart from the obvious stone and glass presence it is the sturdy steel beams that bring another interesting dimension to this Aussie home even as the two butterfly roofs open up to bring in as much sunlight as possible.
The flat roof lines stand in contrast to this form and create both geometric and visual contrast with ease. While the exterior seems rigid and minimal the interior offers an inviting relaxing and open living area that opens up into the beautiful backyard.
