Some build love nests and others build love islands. All love boat jokes aside married couple Wayne Adams and Catherine King began constructing Freedom Cove their incredible oasis on the water back in 1992 and they’ve been adding to it ever since. Now the couple-made island off of the coast of Vancouver Island comprises a whopping 12 mini platforms with all sorts of amenities from an art gallery to a greenhouse and even a dance floor!
The staircase is often viewed as just a functional addition and few homeowners really pay attention to the aesthetic style it delivers. Fewer actually turn the stairway into the focal point of the sparkling modern home and let it define the ambiance of the interior. Accomplishing this with refined contemporary panache is the lovely South designed by Mitsuori Architects and this stunning abode places emphasis on a posh multi-zone family setting. The double-story terrace house was revamped and refurbished to bring in a trendier look and its sculpted timber stairs end up being the showstopper!
The structure of the house offers shade to the outdoor lounge and the barbecue spot while the section of the home containing bedrooms adds to the visual of the rear garden. Concrete wood and glass shape this unique Brazilian home where the homeowners find themselves spending more time outdoors than inside
Transcendent lighting the sight of cool hammock-laced hangouts floating on the lake just a few steps away and the curated pool deck with an outdoor lounge add to the appeal of the pool house. Without a semblance of a doubt it is the magical backdrop that turns this sensible and stylish kiosk into a memorable masterpiece!
Windows were kept to a bare minimum with just three large windows on the main living area offering scenic views of the mountain terrain outside. A smart air circulation system and a black corrugated steel exterior make the home even more energy-efficient.
On the inside partitions are kept to a bare minimum as an open floor plan visually connects the kitchen the dining space and the family zone. One can see industrial-style lighting and glass partitions with dark metallic frames throughout the residence while understated contemporary décor fills each room. Lighting plays a major role in the overall ambiance of the home with natural ventilation flowing from one room to the next. Geometric tiles in the kitchen add pattern to the space while throw pillows and bedding bring color to the minimal bedroom in white.
