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 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.
A live-edge dining table brings textural contrast to a distinctly contemporary backdrop with wooden shelves adding inviting warmth. On the outside a 3000-square-foot terrace and rooftop retreat provides a private getaway that is visually connected with the smart home office inside.
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.
Despite the lack of bold colors and vivacious prints the polished London residence still exudes a sense of inviting radiance thanks to the beautiful décor and the wonderful use of stacked wood to add textural contrast.
It is that time of the year again when you start to enjoy the weather outside and maybe head out for a picnic or two as well along with your family and friends. This expansive private residence dubbed ‘’ in British Columbia seems like a perfect retreat designed to enjoy such beautiful weather as you are draped in natural goodness.
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.
