Designed by Remy Architects the spacious home occupies and is spread across three gorgeous levels that are interconnected with a series of walkways and cleverly placed corridors.
Operable sliding panels bring in another layer of flexibility and adaptability to a beautiful and sensible makeover that draws you in with its distinct industrial-modern flavor and smart utilization of space.
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.
The exterior of this cool cottage also paints a picture of textural beauty as white cedar is combined with a dash of raw exposed steel to shape a façade that would age beautifully as it wears on.
But the fabulous renovation goes well beyond the mere expansion of available interior space thanks to the eco-sensitive energy and utility systems which cut back on power consumption and make life here a lot more sustainable.
Each of three cottage-style structures of the home has its own purpose with the first one serving as a garage and workshop as it sits at the end of a winding driveway that leads you into the lot.
While one of the two volumes holds the living room kitchen and dining space the other contains three bedrooms two bathrooms an attic and a terrace. The color palette inside the house is filled with earthen hues with stone adobe and cane dominating much of the setting while the red grass sun roof outside seems to extend this ‘nature-centric’ theme.
