Designed by Suman Architects this beautiful residence showcases a perfect alchemy of contemporary and rustic styles with the aesthetics of a traditional mountain home coupled with modern ergonomics and comfort.
It was Lane Williams Architects who transformed this 1960s midcentury home into a contemporary family residence by expanding the living area adding an additional bedroom and breaking up the visual of dark Western Red Cedar in the living area with a white-painted drywall.
The entrance of the lavish home is marked by arched walkways and corridors typical of that classic Tuscan home. Comfort is draped in cloak of natural goodness and inviting warmth as reclaimed barn timber beams recycled terra-cotta tiles and custom design solutions turn the interior into a timeless world full of wonder and delight.
Yet it is the exterior of the house that draws your attention instantly with two retaining concrete walls supporting the cantilevered frame of the house. This preserves the original lot as much as possible and fashion a residence that is as ecologically non-invasive as possible.
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.
