Designed by Jamison Architects the renovation sought to increase the living space indoors give the home a more cheerful ambiance and to open up the new master suite on the second level to the distant ocean view. The lower level of the revamped duplex now houses the living area along with the kitchen and dining space.
The double-height living space is clad in decorative screening to ensure that the wall of windows seems far more visually appealing while controlling the flood of natural light. Drapes and operable louvres add another layer of ventilation and temperature control to this level.
Showcasing another such alchemy of styles is this fabulous private home in the stylish suburb of Sydney. 181 Palmer is a converted warehouse residence that borrows from the charm of similar homes in NYC while adding a hint of quirky originality.
This is a mountain home that epitomizes the eternal allure of quality log craft and why it is such an essential feature of unforgettable hypnotic cabin retreats. And adding to this charm are custom details such as the wine cellar unique staircase and cool kitchen cabinets and the bunkhouse that turn the into a one-of-a-kind escape.
At its core this is a home that explores the possibility of a modern home melting into the landscape around it and the beautiful adobe walls stand tall at the heart of this innovative approach.
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.
Pops of color such as the yellow accent wall in the living area dark chalkboard wall in the kitchen and vintage Coca-Cola signs in the bedroom enhance the air of playful joy indoors. With new metallic bones and classic 19th century charm this is a house that leaves you mesmerized with its sheer ingenuity!
