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.
A simple pathway and an irregular ramp shape the lovely entrance to the house where a large 4-meter-tall door in local Lapacho wood greets you gleefully. The interior is also draped in locally sourced Lapacho wood adding warmth and elegance to a contemporary setting that is otherwise dominated by white and other neutral hues.
Studying distinct architectural styles from different regions of the world not only gives us a clarity on how modern cityscapes have evolved but also gives us an insight into local cultural history and momentous events that shaped the lives of people living in the region.
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 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.
On the inside oak boards usher in warmth and elegance even as polished modern finishes in the kitchen and dining room paint a picture of refinement. A smart ventilation system and elegant décor complete a cottage that is both exquisite and exciting!
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.
