Having started as a simple refurbishment of the lower level living area the project became a full-fledged overhaul when the architects realized that the fundamental structure of the house was unsound. The new living area contains the kitchen sitting zone and dining area on the lower level of the residence that opens up towards the rear patio.
Vivacious and colorful finishes coupled with modern Nordic style and comfy décor complete a casual resourceful and inimitable family home where every little detail has been tailored keeping in mind both the present and future needs of its denizens.
Kids’ bedrooms storage areas a guest room and a home office are nestled on the second level and offer unabated views of both the backyard and the distant beach. It is the garage that acts as a transition zone between the entry mud room and the backyard and serves the family in more ways than one.
The transition between the new interior and the courtyard is completely seamless with swiveling glass doors and large framed glass walls separating both areas visually. While the latest addition showcases a relaxed contemporary style the existing bungalow combines traditional elegance with modern sparkle.
If there is one unmistakable trend in the world of home design it is structures that are enriched by the landscape that surrounds them even as they brush aside the conventional line between the interior and the world outside.
