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.
Minimalism at Villa K does not feel sterile as it is the scenery that surrounds this unique home that adds color and personality while the structure itself acts as a beautiful blank canvas.
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.
It is here that one finds a beautiful sensible and contemporary renovation of a barn house that offers a marvelous window into the breathtaking landscape in which it sits. Dubbed by Ruinelli Associati Architetti this is a transformation that combines the classic with the modern without ever seeming out of place.
It almost seems like a jigsaw puzzle envisioned by the designer coming together as each little detail adds to the overall theme and seems like an integral and inherent part of the larger picture. This is what makes the San Francisco home so truly special as it ropes you in with its pleasant personality.
The spectacular pool intersects with the house and stretches into the living area with a wonderful U-shaped deck offering plenty of space for outdoor parties and a relaxing sojourn.
A new master bedroom with ensuite a second bedroom home office bathroom and separate laundry were accommodated by simply doing away with unnecessary partitions and realigning rooms inside the house. The star of the show though is the new open plan living area with kitchen and dining space that extends outdoors thanks to the large spotted gum deck and a lovely garden it overlooks.
