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.
Kids’ bedrooms are nestled on the first floor while the top level contains the master bedroom home office and a small terrace. Functionality precedes form at this elegant conversion with the interior being draped in calming neutral hues.
The front pavilion with its large glass doors opens up completely towards this majestic courtyard and even the kitchen and dining space seem constantly connected with the natural heaven outside.
Some home renovations demand modern design solutions that replicate their existing style while there are others that go beyond the mundane and present a truly fascinating and exceptional marriage of contrasting styles.
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.
Thanks to the U-shaped structure of the residence the homeowners enjoy complete privacy as they spend time in the courtyard even as the street façade keeps away prying eyes. A separate living area for guests and the master suite are also integrated visually with the rear yard. Warm lighting adds another layer of intrigue to this California home that breaks away from the mundane.
