There is no doubting the fact that it is the view outside that is the real showstopper here but the design of this wonderful cabin the remarkably comfy ambiance it creates indoors and the elegant use of natural materials and plush textures to accomplish this complement the majestic scenery perfectly.
Transforming a traditional row house that dates back to 1880 into a contemporary home that serves the needs of a modern family is a task that requires a careful balance of form and function The space available is indeed limited creating another dimension to the design conundrum and it does take a hint of creativity along with an understanding of the building’s past to get the best result.
The idea was to create a contemporary home for two sisters with two separate individual homes that blend into one even while giving both its occupants ample privacy. The floor plan created a cozy structure with wooden walls that offered two rooms a dining and a sitting room a bathroom a kitchen and a terrace for each of them to enjoy.
Anchored into a steep hillside the lovely mountain home offers a perfect vantage point to take in the many sights and sounds outside while its rough-hewn timber and stone structure showcases the very best of the local alpine home design.
This remarkable fireplace in the living room not only seems connected with the ever-changing hues of the landscape outside but also complements the large piece of wall art perfectly. Every little detail is curated carefully and nothing is an accident here as each section of the house utilizes varying materials such as American Walnut Cedar and Oak. The rustic bathrooms powder room and family area combine effortlessly with the more modern kitchen bedrooms and living areas.
Built as a family retreat that combines modern ergonomics and comfort with the timeless charm of a rustic mountain cabin the exquisite escape offers the best of both worlds. Designed by Poss Architecture it draws you in with its unassuming charm and the spectacular view on offer!
The lower level contains the an open plan living area along with the kitchen and dining space guest bedroom a pantry and laundry room while the top floor of the extension holds the master suite. With the addition of the two-story structure much of the original home serves as a smart buffer zone and now houses a home studio and playroom.
