It is the double-height living room on the lower level that morphs into the heart and soul of the home with the dining area and kitchen on one side and the open outdoors on the other. Connected with the backyard pool area and the sweeping deck it has a relaxing outdoorsy feel and the open design with large glass doors and windows enhances this airy ambiance.
One of the most distinctive features of the home is its that is covered in steel and ushers in an air of timelessness to an otherwise modern structure. Turning a normal home in a multi-level residence with a lovely attic the design of the house by Dorrington Atcheson Architects fuses a distinct silhouette with seamless modern ergonomics.
Planning your home around a lovely courtyard where each room is visually connected with it is a great way to create a relaxing and rejuvenating vibe indoors. Of course it’s a lot easier said than done and often courtyards end up being either too constrained or far too artificial to really add that outdoorsy charm to your home. But the lovely designed by Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects showcases how to design a home around a sensational courtyard that promises to offer a relaxing hangout after a hard day’s work.
The showstopper in this minimal living room is the American Oak sliding panel edged in bronze that hides the television with ease. At the touch of a button it gently gives way to the entertainment hub in the living room when needed and epitomizes the minimal style of the living room.
With a gabled roof the interior seems both spacious and cheerful and the light wooden tones of the ceiling and the walls add to the breezy summer charm. Large windows bring in both the panoramic views and ample light while smart pendants in white tend to melt away into the backdrop.
And if you’re looking for something a bit softer around the edges BMT’s egg-shaped Sea-Suite might fit the bill perfectly. The oblong design was actually first developed for a cruise liner terminal in Hong Kong but was reused to envision a series of beach homes and floating residences.
Large glass windows also offer spectacular views of the city while a splendid green wall becomes the star of the show in the moody dining room. Since it was designed to fit the sleek lifestyle of its single homeowner low-maintenance decor and finishing were key aspects that defined the many choices made inside the loft home.
