Bringing a healthy dose of greenery to a contemporary suburban home is a task that involves ample creativity and demands a reasonable amount of space. Sitting on a sloped lot in the tranquil neighborhood of Wahroonga Australia this creative residence turns what is generally perceived as a hindrance into an asset!
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.
Taking up this exciting task gleefully Feldman Architecture crafted a breezy beautiful and intuitive modern home that has not only earned LEED Platinum certification but also is pleasing on the eye for those who do not wish to compromise on elegant form.
Even the entry captures the uniqueness of the home with a loggia that offers a view of the garden even as it leads you into the living room. A neutral color palette warm wooden tones and a smart lap pool add to the air of comfort and relaxation indoors even as the homeowners take in the sights and sounds outside!
Throughout the home one finds a healthy blend of neutral backgrounds vivacious color brilliant artwork and an ambiance that combines casual design elements with a hint of urbane sophistication. Bespoke décor inviting outdoor areas and a lovely backyard complete this unpretentious yet brilliant Kansas City home.
The resulting home is a fusion of the very best from both design philosophies as timeless architectural features are combined with trendy modern overtones. Textured plastered walls false ceilings that showcase the warmth of wood and iron and stone features were added to the modern interior to give it a more traditional sheen.
But the in takes a completely different approach as it acquires a striking and dramatic front-façade clad in a matte black material that is usually employed in making skateboarding ramps!
