It is amazing how jaded life makes us as we grow older and the fascination that we have for little things seems to fade away all too soon in the real world. Yet some things remain constant like our love all things that fly high in the air and a desire to find a quiet lonely nook that takes us away from the rush of the world.
Every home has a certain distinct architectural feature or design quirk that makes it special and ensures that it stands out from the crowd. There are times when it is the facade that does the trick and then there are other occasions when it is something on the inside that grabs your attention.
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.
Smart architecture is all about adapting to the landscape even while flawlessly serving the needs of those residing within a structure. It is a delicate balance that is enhanced by elegant aesthetics and contemporary overtones.
On first look the looks more like a fabulous residence with mid-century influence and contemporary vibe from a lovely neighborhood in San Francisco.

Despite a small backyard and a narrow footprint the house features an interior that is both open and bright with ample natural light.
Then you also have the charm of a revitalized interior that is filled with a flood of natural light. The gorgeous is another perfect case in the point as a glazed contemporary rear extension completely alters this classic British home. The task of giving this dreary residence a new lease of life fell upon UVArchitects who added the rear extension as a transition zone between the existing home and the small rear garden.
But the last decade saw a completely design and decorating direction take shape with gray heading the trends chart. If you thought that this was a passing fad then you are probably both surprised and delighted by the long-lasting nature of gray as a hot neutral. Embracing this phenomenon along with the warmth of wood the in delivers precisely what it promises!
