In a world where every second matters and our lives seem so intertwined with our clocks it is hard to truly escape from the rush and catch a quiet moment. It is often nature that offers this relaxing retreat and in California is one such fabulous getaway that connects its residents with surrounding landscape.
Use of large dark windows with dark metallic frame gives the Aussie residence a subtle industrial vibe; an idea that is enhanced by the occasional presence of the exposed brick wall. But still the interior feels strictly contemporary (with a fun twist) and the kitchen and dining space on the lower level continue this theme.
One enter the top wooden level of the floor on street level and instantly notices the charm of Cape Cod and the surrounding landscape becoming a part of the overall design. With its unique silhouette the house seems striking and yet surprisingly non-intrusive even as the top level master suite and guest suites offer amazing view of the Bay area and beyond. A glass walkway connects these two wings with the lower level housing the stylish living space large kitchen dining and other public zones.
Folding doors with wooden slats on the top level further the allow the homeowners to switch between ample privacy and controlled views with ease even as the small gardens on the lower level create a cheerful and refreshing atmosphere indoors. An open living area with an unassuming contemporary style and neutral color scheme welcome you indoors.
Connected with the yard using stackable folding doors the living area kitchen and dining sparkle with marble radiance and refined aesthetics. Adding to this glint are additions like the Moooi Random Light that steals the show in the living room and the space-conscious dining table that is an extension of the kitchen island.
