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.
Stretching just 7 meters wide and 20 meters in length the designed by 7A Architecture Studio is one such gorgeous contemporary home where two smartly planned levels maximize space with ease.
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.
A cantilevered house brings with it a unique set of advantages that homes on raised platforms just cannot offer. For starters you have a façade that is quite stunning and instantly grabs the attention of anyone walking past the home.
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.
But the true showstopper of this Vietnamese residence is undoubtedly the dashing with a glass railing that blends minimalism with textural charm and a hint of industrial panache. Social zones outside are carefully integrated with the rooms inside and a flood of natural light ensures there is no dull corner inside this beautiful home.
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.
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.
