The double-sided fireplace draws its inspiration from the exterior façade as concrete bricks also end up adding textural contrast to the modern setting. Smart décor and a neutral color palette complete this delightful residence where the homeowners might just end up spending more time outdoors than inside!
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!
Some of us find our dream home in the small urban apartment that serves as a simple escape and a place to rest and relax in between all the hard work and partying. Others might prefer a magical escape that is nestled in the heart of unadulterated natural beauty and then there are those who are willing to take up the challenge of renovating an old discarded structure into a new house.
The new homeowners of this post war two-story house wanted a contemporary interior that was breezy devoid of unnecessary partitions and featured a rear extension that offered additional living space. Scenario Architecture accomplished this by creating an open sitting area on the lower level with just a fireplace wall separating the reception area from the kitchen.
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.
With a spacious loggia a relaxing garden and a refreshing pool life here is all about taking in the sights and sounds outside! A wooden deck leads to the pool area where there is ample space for the entire family to rest rejuvenate and even spend the summer enjoying an idyllic staycation.
Cabinetry in mahogany extends through the kitchen dining room and living area on the lower level and seems to connect the interior visually even as a private central courtyard provides a much needed escape and party zone.
