Remodeling an old home into a modern delight that meets the needs of its contemporary owners is a hard task in itself. But this becomes even more challenging when you have to incorporate space-savvy features and smart storage options that make the most of every inch on offer.
A metallic stairway leads you to the top floor that houses the exquisite master bedroom with its chevron headboard wall and imaginative lighting. A spa-style bathroom and additional bedrooms complete a loft that is both welcoming and a touch ‘edgy’ at the same time.
The main building contains the living area along with the kitchen dining room and other social spaces while the second structure holds the master suite along with the guest quarters. A gorgeous connector links both the structures and also offers a wonderful protected walkway of sorts that lets those inside enjoy the wonderful ocean views outside. Another advantage of this site plan is the creation of the sheltered courtyard that is carefully protected from harsh ocean winds on gusty days.
This smart sustainable module was crafted by ArchiBlox using locally sourced wood milled from sustainable forests and metallic panels that protect the home from the harsh ocean wind. But it is the gorgeous green roof of the house that truly steals the show and gives it an inimitable and exciting look.
Constructing a contemporary home in the middle of a heavily wooden region is a challenging task on several fronts. From logistics to environmental norms there are plenty of little things that one needs to worry about when bringing a modern structure into a forest area.
The interior of the home is clad in neutral hues with wood providing a change in scenery and ushering in textural contrast. A custom wall mural in the living area adds to the ‘natural’ appeal of the home even as the kitchen and the dining area act as a visual extension of this space. A smart kitchen with wooden cabinets and shelves and an ergonomic central island is illuminated by a sparkling pendant even as the dining table on wheels offers an eclectic and cool contrast.
