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.
It is the unassuming simplicity and timeless charm of Japanese architecture that inspired the form of this cabin-style home nestled at an altitude of 6800 feet above sea level. With a simple floor plan breezy flow of natural light and seamless interaction between public and private spaces the eco-friendly home designed by Baosol wins you over instantly.
When it comes to revamping old houses with a heritage façade and giving them a contemporary new makeover it is often the rear extension that comes to the rescue. The advantages of a smart modern extension that acts as an interface between the interior and the backyard go beyond the obvious. For starters this allows architects to work within existing building norms and to preserve the classic appeal of traditional homes without sacrificing on functionality.
A TV wall in gray with fireplace below becomes focal point of the living room while a spacious dining room with smart pendant lighting sits next to it. A Corner kitchen with a sparkling blend of recessed lights and pendants completes this charming setting.
There is no shortage of natural light here and once the sun sets a series of recessed lights and gorgeous pendant take over. It is the top level that holds the bedrooms and bathrooms with many of these offering unabated views of the rear yard and the landscape beyond.
