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.
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!
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.
The solar panel-clad green roof provides all the energy necessary for the villa even as a smart heat exchange system ample natural light and energy-saving fixtures turn it into a smart zero-energy residence. With an open plan living area and bedrooms neatly tucked away to offer ample privacy this is an exquisite villa that combines style sustainability and a dramatic façade.
A smart solution is often found in the form of a street façade that keeps away prying eyes while incorporating a rear section that opens up to the scenery that surrounds the house.
With a rugged coastline on one side that sees arguably some of the roughest weather on the planet and a beautiful forest on the other the cabin is perfectly placed to make the most of the amazing views on offer. This is precisely why Design Base 8 and Omar Gandhi Architect opted for a three-story structure that towers over the forest canopy with elegance!
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.
