A new louvre system also helps keep away harsh sunlight on hot summer days while the natural sea breeze cools the house and creates a pleasant atmosphere. Responding to the needs of the site and those of the homeowner this is a home alteration that is pleasing in more ways than one!
But as years have rolled on many of these homes have lost their distinct style and uniqueness because of substantial and poorly planned renovations and additions that completely altered the original structure.
Lighting is barely ever an issue during the day with a flood of natural sunlight making its way even into the lower floor while cozy ambient lighting supplemented by beautiful pendant lighting takes over at night. With a wonderful wooden deck large pool and other small niches life at House JJ is more about the outdoors than the comforts of the interior.
The interior was crafted for a modern family and a casual fun atmosphere is coupled with modern aesthetics and smart ergonomics to fashion a one-of-a-kind setting.
The floor plan inside was revamped removing unnecessary partitions and creating more room for the new entry living area and other public spaces. The color scheme is neutral with a white backdrop being energized by exposed wooden ceiling beams and rustic surfaces that usher in ample visual and textural contrast.
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.
The weathered and metallic appeal of the Cor-Ten Steel façade does give the lovely residence a uniqueness that draws your attention instantly even as the rest of the house embraces a far more familiar contemporary style.
