The street façade of the house offers complete privacy with a wooden wall and entrance surrounded by trees and shrubs keeping away any prying eyes. The interior is split into two wings with one housing the public areas and the other containing a series of bedrooms and bathrooms.
While the cedar section contains the guest rooms and the courtyards the structure clad in stone holds the living areas and a unique art collection. Combining the essence of the panoramic rustic scenery around it with a distinct contemporary vibe this charming residence offers the best of both worlds!
Color scheme inside the residence is kept strictly neutral with white and gray being the prominent hues. Rugs with geometric patterning lighting and décor are used to delineate space in the open plan living area. Walls clad in ipe wood add warmth to the bedroom and the magnificent Pacific Ocean views turn this sophisticated home into a relaxing and fascinating escape.
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.
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!
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.
