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.
The 20-foot-long tiny home is draped in cedar vertical siding on the outside with large windows and Cor-ten steel offering ample textural contrast. On the inside you can choose from a variety of materials that include oak aspen pine and maple.
The stylish addition at ushers in lovely textural contrast and contemporary charm even as its dark exterior seems to complement the red brick façade and the black roof to perfection! At its heart this is a beautiful blend of styles and eras.
The idea of adding a new kitchen to the cottage started with the architect exploring ways in which he could replicate the original brickwork and style of the existing structure. But in an attempt to find that ‘perfect’ extension that leads to minimal structural changes to the timeless cottage the idea of a glass box kitchen came to the fore.
The new extension seems to draw its inspiration from the many shipping container homes around as its design embraces metal and glass gleefully. Spread across it contains a beautiful kitchen draped in walnut and marble along with a lovely master bedroom that overlooks the private yard.
Clean lines and the use of robust materials that require little regular maintenance and cleaning aim to make life at this island home as comfortable and easy as possible. An open living and dining area all-white kitchen and even bedrooms and bathrooms that take in the view on offer guarantee a lifestyle that seems like one endless pleasing and peaceful holiday draped in opulence!
Maximizing the available space to the hilt and spread across three different levels this delightful home blends in effortlessly with the more traditional Roanoke Park neighborhood.
