Conjured up and brought to life by Reinach Mendonça Arquitetos Associados this is a holiday and weekend home for a modern family that creates a cozy alchemy of modern comfort and natural goodness.
It is a contemporary home that is defined largely by the irregular lot that it sits in and the existing greenery that the homeowners and Tzannes Associates wished to preserve to the best possible extent. The result is a fascinating and exceptional home where the outdoors become a vital part of the interior!
But the real showstopper of the house is the way in which the front section offers wonderful views of the suburban skyline while the rear unit opens up towards lush green bushes. It is this transformation from the urban jungle to tranquil greenery that makes this Bardon home even more special! With a street façade that offers complete privacy and creative lighting fixtures that bring snazzy sparkle this family residence delivers comfort draped in a serene setting.
Normally utilized for commercial the new interior also contains a cool kitchen and dining area that make the most of the bright and cheerful setting. A central light tube that is common in homes in the city ensures that there is never a dull moment in here even as additional skylights shape lovely green nooks that house indoor plants.
A cleverly designed lap pool epitomizes the outdoorsy appeal that every space inside this home exudes even as the kitchen flows into the private courtyard creating a beautiful family zone. Smart window seats iconic midcentury chairs and plush sofas elevate the comfort level with the backdrop being kept strictly neutral.
As is the norm in most modern homes the architects rely on large sliding glass doors to create this seamless transition from the industrial-modern living area to the grand courtyard. Corrugated siding metallic surfaces a live edge dining table and colorful artwork fashion an interior that retains an air of edgy industrial style despite its relaxing ambiance.
A neutral color scheme and fashionable pendant lights ensure that the Y House still remains largely modern while it is the cool outdoor dining area pool deck and covered pavilion that usher in a more relaxing and authentic local flavor.
