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.
Two different private sections of the house come together in the middle to create a spacious common area that contains the kitchen dining room and living area. With each of the private wings boasting of two bedrooms a bathroom and a smart multitasking zone the house feels both inviting and spacious.
The basic idea behind the design of the house is to keep things simple with a minimal decorating style taking over. On the outside the house is draped in white and gray and this polished color scheme holds sway inside as well.
Despite the use of blue accent additions and bold metallics the house is largely neutral and large sliding glass doors welcome the outdoors inside during warmer summer months.
Ceramic and terrazzo finishes also give the home plenty of textural contrast with the warm and traditional kitchen becoming the heart and soul of this Asian residence. The living area also uses color in a sophisticated manner with green walls and a neutral backdrop creating a picture-perfect setting.
Apart from the obvious façade of the house the first feature one notices here is the gorgeous crafted entrance and the smart gardens that surround the structure. A modern pool and tennis court sit next to one another and a series of tall trees on the outside provide privacy in natural manner. On the inside white is the color of choice in different rooms with natural light flooding in to add to the brightness and sense of freshness.
It is the rear of the house that gets a dramatic facelift with the new addition while the street façade remains completely unchanged. This preserves the original classic vibe of the residence even while ensuring that the interior has an aura that is inspired by modern industrial lofts in cities like New York and Vancouver.
But the in takes an entirely different approach to its design with a more energy-efficient and eco-friendly set of apartments that are LEED platinum certified and perfect for the eco-conscious homeowner.
