The white plastered exterior not only allows the home to blend into the snowy slopes around it but also improves the insulation of the structure and ensures that the interior remains toasty warm during the frigid winter months.
It is this outdoor area that is used as an extended living space as it blurs the line between the interior and the world outside. A long and private entry surrounded by trees and plants leads to the lower-level living area that houses an open plan living room along with other public spaces.
We often talk about creating your own personal sanctuary to escape the rush of daily life and while some of us do try few homes come close to this amazing residence in Indonesia designed by Atelier Cosmas Gozali.
The spectacular pool intersects with the house and stretches into the living area with a wonderful U-shaped deck offering plenty of space for outdoor parties and a relaxing sojourn.
Designed by Paul de Ruiter Architects the creative private residence is crafted in just glass steel and concrete and the focus here is firmly on the view outside rather than the décor indoors.
It is vertical Kayu Batu siding and white plastered balconies that refresh the façade of the house and give it a smart yet distinct new look. On the inside a white backdrop coupled with lovely mahogany surfaces ensures that the interior is both minimal and inviting.
The living room kitchen and dining room seem both spacious and cheerful as a flood of natural light coming through the skylights enlivens it. With a neutral color scheme and modern décor the focus here is more on framing the view on offer perfectly and ensuring that the interior plays supporting cast to the scenery.
