Precast concrete blocks and tiles paint the picture inside with wood being used for the series of raised platforms to combine a sense of minimalism with inviting warmth and a serene Asian style.
Most modern apartment structures not only feel sterile and boring but are often viewed as buildings that impact the urban landscape in a negative fashion by wasting vast energy resources and leaving a huge carbon footprint.
The beautiful home designed by Neil Logan Architect uses a common style and materiality to link the three separate buildings that make it up with covered walkways and woodsy elevated platforms linking one area with the next.
With River Rapel meeting the Pacific in this quaint setting the residence designed by WMR Arquitectos does all it can to capture the beauty of the distant landscape and bring it indoors.
A smart staircase connects the two different levels of the house effortlessly with natural light flooding through both the levels. Clean lines and contemporary décor put the final touches on this beautiful Chilean residence.
The neutral backdrop allows light to spread throughout the residence evenly and shapes a cheerful setting with the sight of the ocean in the distance stealing the spotlight.
Nestled in the middle of a beautiful oak forest and overlooking the ocean in the distance is a Swedish home that sits next to a summer home that was originally built in the 1960’s. The contemporary structure makes its presence felt with a dark and dashing exterior that is minimal and lit elegantly using sconce lighting.
Two different terraces in the house extend the living area outdoors with ease even as local pine wood is used extensively throughout the building. Large glass walls and V-shaped pillars that support the cantilevered building usher in some much needed contrast to this warm and inviting space.
