As is the case with most modern renovations it is large sliding glass doors that get the job done with the new rear of the residence getting a large window with a distinct black frame. Despite this beautiful makeover not everything here is brand new with the exterior brick façade and striking features like the fireplace in the living room being preserved carefully.
Rough weather is the norm here and the entire structure of the cabin has been built to withstand this relentless onslaught from the elements by using redundant sheathing and a strong structural plan. Step inside and warm wooden tones welcome you gleefully and offer a pleasant break from the tough outdoors.
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!
On the inside it is ceiling panels handcrafted décor surfaces draped in wood and the presence of kawung pattern that give the home its distinct flavor. Blurring the boundary between the interior and the greenery outside the living area opens up towards the courtyard and the pool deck creating one large seamless family zone.
As is the case with most modern homes it is a neutral color palette that acts as a beautiful and unassuming canvas for the designer to showcase her true brilliance. Each room is filled with bespoke décor wonderful accessories and a fabulous piece of wall art or two and each one of them complements the other perfectly.
It is the view outside filled with rolling hills the sight of bright city lights after sunset and endless greenery that defines the pavilion-style upper level of the home where glass walls redefine the indoor-outdoor dynamic. Designed by Obra Arquitetos it is the dining room spacious living area and a classy kitchen in black and white that make up this floor.
The new kitchen is also draped in white with polished concrete surfaces and a smart breakfast table that can easily slide under the central island breaking a sense of visual monotony. Efficient elegant and exquisite this smart makeover is everything the homeowners longed for!
