Designed by David Howell Design the luxurious penthouse is spread across three spacious levels and is nestled on top of a building with an original cast iron façade – an iconic image in itself!
Creating an open living space connected with the garden was one of the key requirements of the clients and by using sliding glass doors this is accomplished with effortless ease. The high ceiling and an internal courtyard provide this space with ample natural light and pops of bright color and the garden landscape gives it a vibrant and cheerful appeal.
Nestled atop a hill and overlooking a breathtaking landscape the striking contemporary home stands out visually from the front even as its green roof allows it to blend into the natural landscape. And seeming to float over the hillside is the amazing pool that also comes with a cool solar deck covering!
The ground level houses the bedrooms while the kitchen and dining room are nestled on the second floor with the living space placed on the top level to give those inside the best possible views. Combining nostalgic past with modernity and personality this is a cabin that definitely is unlike any other we have ever come across!
It is fascinating to see the blend of contrasting textures throughout the home with specific features such as the fireplace wall and kitchen counter in concrete lovely oak finishes and even exposed timber beams coming together seamlessly.
The solar panel-clad green roof provides all the energy necessary for the villa even as a smart heat exchange system ample natural light and energy-saving fixtures turn it into a smart zero-energy residence. With an open plan living area and bedrooms neatly tucked away to offer ample privacy this is an exquisite villa that combines style sustainability and a dramatic façade.
Vaulted roofs give the interior a distinct look with double-height spaces that flow into the relaxing garden outside. A confluence of comfort style and serenity the exterior of the residence clad in concrete wood and metal further accentuates its uniqueness and beauty.
